"Day by day,

Warning for dark lyrics and flashy lights. I really love Circus-P ahahahaha

This song surprisingly suits Marcilyn and her character degression throughout the series. xD Well, in a way anyway. It's basically a song about dissociative identity disorder, but it suits Marcilyn because it could also be about her relationship with Charlamange and Vevenon xD

I thought I'd share this since the poll results were highly unexpected. Many of you enjoy the darker arts, which surprise me O_o (or both light and dark!) I wasn't expecting it like... at all.

I'm sorta glad in a way too... because Netheron is bound to get a lot darker as we go along... considering the way the original first book is done (if you all haven't read it, Estelle basically rules the country like a tyrant... but it's very childlike as well, with a blend of dark and light  elements. However, she doesn't want to rule like a tyrant, and her story is very... very sad. (Course, Estelle's story has somehow also become very, very gay... but more about that later. )

Well... anyway... hope you like this! :D

When I saw the title I immediately thought about that song. :la:

Darker worlds seem more realistic because the real world is full of darkness itself. :nod:

This picture looks kinda sweet. :meow: The colors remind me of chocolate, honey and caramel.

It's a good song :la: I love Circus-P :la:

That's true! Probably why I prefer writing on a slightly dark style. Although writing light or humor is good too :nod:

Aww  that's cool xD Kinda does for me too, hahaha :giggle:

I really like this artwork of you O: I do enjoy how this one seems like it also carries a hidden meaning, I wonder what will happen to Marcilyn along the series now :3

Thank you c: I'm glad you like it. Haha, a lot happens to Marcilyn throughout the book... she's probably one of my most angsty characters come to think of it... even more than Estelle! I feel bad for what I put her through XD She doesn't deserve all the bad things that happen to her *strokes Marcilyn's head* xD

Oh thank you! I'm really putting effort in to improve my painting as well as cell shading skills. In fact, the comic will be in both cell shading as well as my more paintery style. I decided since I can't pick a specific style, I'll do both xD

Ohhhhhh I was talking about the first book of Netheron for Estelle's tyranny. XD Sorry for the confusion. You've definitely have read that before c: The Sequel is where things really get dark, and then the Prequel is where most of the character digression for pretty much the whole cast happens xD (Although in Netheron, Estelle, Mae, and Otto go through character growth, with Marcilyn dragging behind because of her late addition to the novel series. ) So basically no one's read any of what I have been working on, but I felt like sharing this picture of Marcilyn c:

Marcilyn... well, she definitely has some tough struggles from the very beginning of her character arch. Considering her bad experiences with Yvette and Maxillian before the prequel even began, and her later experiences with her father Vevenon and Charlamange, Marcilyn's never been without someone trying to take advantage of her. (And Vevenon's always been taken advantage of too... ) Marcilyn knows she's being manipulated into bad decisions, but she can't stop them because of being guilt tripped. She hates feeling guilty, but she's highly gullible, even if she's very intuitive, and knows exactly what's going on. It's just that she's very sensitive, and people take advantage of that, and it causes a horrendous cycle of guilt to occur.

Where this song comes in... Marcilyn feels like she must copy everything her father does, and every time she looks into a mirror, she sees her father. During the Sequel - certain occurrences may happen that will make Marcilyn act like she's being controlled by something else that isn't herself, and it causes some tension between her and her father, because although he really wants to protect her, he's only hurting her instead, and therefore Marcilyn has to push away from him, and learn to stop being so gullible, and actually "man-up" a bit XD

Hopefully that explains things better xD (I hope I didn't give away any spoilers LOL )

No problem! :D :glomp: I'm glad you like the idea! Marcilyn definitely struggles with being her father's shadow, which is why I thought this song was so perfect for her! xD

This is so awesome and dramatic looking. I love the tape over the mouth effect. And I really like the colors too.

Haha I love your description "very, very dark" and "very, very gay" That's wonderful! The best kind of story! ;) 

Plus Marcilyn has beautiful eyes! She is my favorite of your OCs :)

Awwww thank yoooou <33 Ahahaha, truth be told - this isn't the first time I've done it xD I've done a lot of dark art in the past, but it just got unhealthy so I quit doing it xD It took me a lot of courage to start again, since I grip onto the darker elements so easily! ^^;

Yep D: Some of the lyrics could describe book 2-3 elements, and the aftermath of the prequel (well, if I end up going down that route anyway xD ) I'm not spoiling anything though ahahaha But it seems like it could especially suit the relationship between her and her father.
