i drew dave and dirk and ended up resizing the original lineart down to nearly half the original size
idk should i post the originals
somebody mispronounced dirk’s name as derp today
based on lil cal and neophyte redglare
dirk’s hands bother me a lot ughhhhhhhh how do i limbs
because he’s eros
and he’s apollo
i know the song isn’t about two guys, but eh.
eros had a doomed relationship with a woman named psyche, and apollo had a string of lovers from either gender, but he also had a doomed relationship with a man named hyacinth
(he got turned into a hyacinth flower. greek mythology, yo.)
Punk.. stuck..? I just really wanted to draw punks. The one of Dirk/Dave was made to compliment this one kind of, this one has been sitting around unfinished for a while but I finally decided to finish it up because I love Bro/Dave
It is an absolutely terrible smell and it surrounds you. It infiltrates your home and your clothes and your hair and it refuses to leave.
Jake says it smells like freedom, like adventure and the unknown (because he doesn’t know how to swim). Jane says it’s beautiful, sparkling and clear, going on for miles in a never ending wash of teal blue. Roxy doesn’t know about it at all, though she imagines it like a giant margarita, an expanse of water with the most luscious little sampling of salt.
You want to scream, you want to tell them that they are all wrong because it could never be that, it could never be something good, or beautiful, or promising. It surrounds you like a prison, it keeps you isolated and so very, very alone and damn it all if it will ever be beautiful.
The smell permeates everything, it clings to your home and your clothes and your skin. You work and work and work to get it off, scratch yourself until you bleed, tear at your clothes and your hair and fuck it even your tears taste like it. Your showers are always long, it is the only water that doesn’t reek of the smell of loneliness, doesn’t hold the smell of salt and decaying fish and even then the smell doesn’t leave you. The water is too hot and leaves your skin in a red flush. You still taste it, though, even when you trap yourself in the tiny little cubicle of the shower, even with the only clean water making your skin such a vivid red.
There are welts from your scratching, your scrubbing, and you’re manic in the way you work the lather all over your body, and it hurts, fuck it hurts, and it’s so completely and utterly useless and still you try. There is hot water running down your cheeks, hotter water still from your eyes, and it always tastes so salty. And always makes you aware, that no matter what you do, you are still very, very alone.
SHIT OH MY GIJSDJWOI
this gif showed up right after this post
Since hussie wont let them meet anytime soon, imma just.. draw them being cool kids.
Well, this is my first attempt at doing animation, so it’s really scratchy… i dont know how to use CS5 LOL. YOLO. orig here
okay, I think Dirk and Jake are really adorable, and there is something so charming and strangely innocent about their relationship, or the possibility thereof, and I can’t wait to see how things develop, and anyway I guess what I’m trying to say is yeah, I totes ship it.
(there, kecky, that wasn’t so hard now, was it?)
