Wow, I really like this. I am trying to stay partial to everyone in the contest, but I just really love this. You did such a good job and I always thought it was so sad that Gamzee would sit out there waiting like that for his dad to never come. How many nights he would wait out there. This struck me right in the heart :'o) This is so well done.
OMG this made me so sad, then I read your description and ruqhurfbaivienwovoenvrif, I didn't even think of the fact that Gamzee WOULD sit out there waiting. Sure, it's not like I NEEDED my feelings or anything.
DAMN IT GOAT-DAD, WHY THE HELL WEREN'T YOU A BETTER LUSUS!?! The poor baby
My theory (sorry gonna ramble a bit, feel free to ignore and look at the pretty picture) is that Gamzee and his Lusus were kinda stuck in this odd limbo of custodians. All the purple bloods have water dwelling lusus, but Gamz is of course not water dwelling. I think this is why GoatDad had a hard time taking care of/caring about Gamzee.
However, I think Gamzee loved GoatDad very much and was very lonely and would wait for him by the water. He might have even gotten mad at GoatDad for not being there but always forgave him when he came home.
Rightly so. It clearly has a lot of emotion in it. And the more emotion the artist puts into a piece, the better the piece becomes, and invokes necessary emotions from those looking at the piece. Well done. (:
