FAIRYTALE ADAPTATIONS (3/?): Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast by Robin McKinley

Character Aesthetics: The Beast 

Happy birthday, Undertale!

I could go on a whole spiel on how this little game impacted my life. But I wouldn’t know what to say, and we’d be here all day. In short though, it reminded me of how determined a person I am (and have always been), as well as helping me find confidence within myself. At the time, a year ago, I was in a similar place as say, Alphys or Napstablook. I really wasn’t happy with myself, but upon experiencing this game and being introduced to such confident characters as Papyrus, Undyne, and Mettaton, I found myself building my own confidence over the past year, and it shows. I’ve never felt so pleased with my own art before, or so optimistic that I can draw whatever I set my mind to. I’ve been drawing these characters for almost a year now, and now I find myself with more than half a thousand lovely people taking interest in the silly things I draw. Now there are aspiring artists following me, inspired by me….I never thought I’d come that far, to be an inspiration to others….

While I still have a lot of confidence to build socially, I feel like I’ve come a long way…and so have many other people. This game has come a long way in the people it’s impacted around the world. Thank you, Toby Fox, for creating this game, for reminding us all to stay determined.




got to do some watercolor painting in Sedona early this morning
