Tremble Little Lion Man by Turtle-Arts Tremble Little Lion Man by Turtle-Arts
Because drawing Gin once the other day just wasn't enough. XD Another pic of my OC Gin, though this time Colton's in there too. And for those of you who don't know/remember, Colton is the boy whose body Gin actually inhabits. He's dead of course, but the body still has residual memories of him, meaning Gin has some of Colton's memory and personality (not much, but a little). And it might be possible that part of Colton still lives inside of Gin, and that part of him still resents Gin for taking his body. And it also might possibly be a part of Colton that wants to take his body back. :I

And yes the title is from the M&S song. For some reason, listening to that song always reminds me of these two, so I used part of it for the title. :thumbsup:

Hey, I noticed that it said on your profile that you might do trades... Is my art comparable enough to yours that you'd be interested in a trade? If not, that's totally understandable, but I'd really love to do one. C:

(And either way, I'll draw him. ^^)

It's in the history section of Gin's original app, but I'll just tell you here instead of sending you off on a search to find it. XD

Basically Colton was part of the family that lived in the house Gin's gate led to. But Colton got really sick (like, on his deathbed sick), and in a last stitch effort to save him, his mom took him out to Gin's statue. Shishi are supposed to be protective spirits, so she asked for Gin to try and save Colton. Gin decided to take the opportunity because he had been wishing for a real body so that he could travel and see other parts of the world besides the immediate area around his gate. (It's kind of hard to walk around when you're a stone statue after all) So Gin moved his spirit from the statue to Colton's body, expecting to basically be a backseat consciousness that would essentially just be "along for the ride" during Colton's life. But it didn't work out quite right because Colton actually died a minute or so before Gin moves in, which meant there wasn't anyone there for Gin to actually save. So instead Gin decided to make the body his own, since he figured Colton wasn't using it anymore and he still wanted a portable body to travel with. That's also why Gin looks different than Colton- since he figured he would make the body a little more like his natural form so that it was more comfortable. Gin tried to go to Colton's family first, but they thought he was evil, so they chased him off. Hence how Gin get's out on his own. :thumbsup: Gin still has residual memories and feelings from Colton partially because of the fact that he took the body so shortly after Colton's death that parts of him weren't quite gone yet- and partially due to something like muscle memory basically.

ah, i see. :D sorry for my lack of observation skills. v.v i like your characters alot. i would like to interact with them.

knowing the story a tad better, haha, putting colton in this picture, well its like a harsh stab. he looks upset and cold, well, lol, theres not much he can do about it. but its like, if he is in there, i think he misses life too.

my words cannot speak correctly whut. i quit now.

point: i like it alot, hurr durr, feels.

Yeah, Colton is kind of an unwanted presence. Gin wants to like him, but all he gets from Colton is mostly negative emotions, so they don't really get along very well. Granted, Colton can't do much about it, but he does have a little control of certain aspects of Gin's thoughts and personality. Though I've been toying with the idea of giving Colton a little more presence- but it'll mostly depend on where the group event is headed. But they're kind of behind so I'm not sure where it's going exactly. XD

yeah, i keep forgetting he was created for a group event. i like how for the most part, its left for each person to decide exactly how much influence colton has. i would love for that to remain, but i would also love to see the colton psyche pushed just tad more. idk, maybe with backstory, then clues? ah, but youre the genius here. im just really excited to see whatever happens next with gin. :D

Well yeah, I don't want Colton to be too much of a push on Gin's character, at least at this point in time. So he's still kind of an up in the air character. :/

Ahhh idk what it is about characters with other beings inside them but they're always awesome. Gin's no exception! This is fab though, and I love how well Gin's hair contrasts with the blue in the picture. Great work Turtle! :]

Thank you! ^^ And yeah, I don't usually do the whole "possession" route with my characters, but it just seemed natural for Gin. Plus, it's a little different I think because Gin's technically inhabiting a dead body, so it's not like he has two personalities living in him or anything. He just has residual traces of the body's previous owner. :I

It's a really unique idea. I've never been a huge fan of characters possessed by evil twins demons or some crap like that, but the idea that Colton is sore over losing his body to someone else is something special.

Especially because Gin isn't evil. Granted, he can be pretty fierce, but he's usually very sweet. :thumbsup: Colton is just a bad sport about it. XD
