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.

“AND EVERYONE…THANK YOU.

YOU’VE BEEN A GREAT AUDIENCE!”
