It's easy to fall in love (...)
 You and I, 
we have to let each other go
we keep holding but we both know, 
what seemed like a good idea
has turned into a B a t t l e f i e l d
- Lea Michele, BATTLEFIELD

Amazing song, I totally suggest you check it out.
It fits a lot of aspects of my characters..but I went for I quick monochrome doodle as a break from the huge amount of art trades and requests I have (my markers other than my cool greys needed some mercy!)
Still, here's my character Irina, yeah, she's Fred's mom and she's supposed to be mean and just ew, but I love her anyway and I feel for her ): !
15-20 minutes doodle, pencils and 8 markers XD

Wow, Irina actually looks pitiful here, but I don't really feel that sorry for her because she brought the downfall of her family upon herself. First she lost Grigorij and now her children.

She thinks everyone, including her children her enemy and tortures them so she can feel like she is winning. But in the end she ends up the loser.

She would be much different as a younger person, and she'be more human, so her feelings woild be real. And she just never thought she'd leave Grigorij or vice versa, so she never even started to worry about it.

She is firmly convinced.she is the winner and that it isn't a bad thing to torture her children like that because they deserve it after all.

Yeah, she may have been a handful in her youth but she never took responsibility for her actions and it soon led to serious consequences.

While it's just to hide her pain.

Indeed, although she wasn't AS bad when she was younger, things would still get out of hand, without having such harsh consequnces though.
Of course, as she got worse, the consequences for her actions grew bigger and bigger and even if she cared about them she wouldn't be able to do much by then.

Yes, the last thing she'd try to show is pain, because according to her it'd look like a weakness and she'd never allow herself to look weak in any way.

Yes because it would be too late, and the consequences became more fatal when she started a family.

And she wants her kids to fear her so they can't see her fears.

Exactly, the consequences were too bad to be fixef, and since she wouldn't even care, she'd realize that she can't do anything about it and she'd leave it be, uncaring with her family as well.

Exactly, and she'd also know that if they fear her, she'd easily be able tl manipulate them and that would be useful.

Yep, and she ends up with nothing but her memories of a broken dream.

Yep, of course Nikolaj and Dasha wouldn't fear her, but for their siblings, including Fred who is Irina's favorite target.

Indeed, and she wouldn't even be able to face that, so she'd slowly lose everything taht is left of her sanity.

Of course, Nikolaj especially, since he'd just feel like he has the reponsibility of keeping the others safe, would have a passive fear of his mom and would try to fix things up just a tiny bit by talking to her, although it obviously wouldn't work.

Oh wow :D This is really amazing! I love the color combinations of black, white, and red, so it's quite a treat to see that here X> Overall, the illustration has a very emotional feel, and since I love monochrome/grayscale works, that's always a plus ;) Nice work!

Oh, I love monochrome too! Monochrome and pastel-like pictures XD Still, thank you so much again!
