I don't draw vent art very often and I post it even less. I pride myself on someone who can deal with his problems head on and rarely needs help with them... that being said, when it reaches a point that I do get to this level it's nothing to sneeze at. While the worst of it has passed and I'm slowly getting over it, for the past several months I've been dealing with a very dark, emotionally and psychologically abusive situation. As such it's been hard to keep up with an art flow, particularly an ongoing one like High School Death Party; last month I made no updates and April has been a struggle so far.
I won't go much into it as the situation is mostly done and it's no one's business but my own. However, in the depth of my depression and delving into darker parts of me I thought were gone forever I pulled this out. I've always been inspired by the anime, Soul Eater. I've paid some homage to it in HSDP already but where this show really shines is it's ability to sum up mankind's struggle with the ego and id and the constant need for checks and balances in one's life as well as the duality of nature. This is usually most evident in the moments where Soul battles with his inner demon... needless to say I associated with those scenes recently, just as much as I do Ridley, who often serves as my mouth piece in HSDP.
If you've ever seen Soul Eater, you'll understand where I'm coming from, if not, just accept it as a much more disturbing, gritty piece of art from a normally plucky, spoopy source. I hope to have more updates in the near future. Till then, keep it creepy~
