Pain by cenobitesquid Pain by cenobitesquid
This is a symbolic piece - based off the interpretations of these characters by my ShinRa RP group. The birds are pain, and the panels depict the ways each of them deals with it.

No matter how many years pass, I always end up coming back at some point to look at this drawing. Each time, it always looks just as beautiful and just as deep as it did the prior.

Ah! What a surprise to come back and read from you in my comments log! And thank you so much for the sentiments on my picture.. I have such fond memories of my RP friends from back in the magic days of ShinRa group-RP. I just got through replaying ff7 this month, as I recently got a ShinRa logo tattooed on my arm (it is badass, perhaps I will post it here.) What do you know, I'm still RPing Rufus. x3

How have you been? It must be five or six years since I've heard from you... I'm living in Seattle now, myself, finished college, have a day job and an apartment, doing art.. writing a novel..

No problem,
My faves are Rufus and Tseng, Tseng more because Of Crisis core.

Wow. This is beautiful. Well...I can't say I know who's who in this, but still. The way you symbolize pain is extremely accurate. Because it can be caged, can be nurtured, can be embraced and can be hidden from.

Faved.

Thanks so much ^_^ I appreciate it. People seem to really connect with this one, I think it's because I was so connected to all of the characters in that roleplay, at that time. So it means a lot to me, still.. <3 If you're curious, left to right it's Rufus, Elena, Reno, and Tseng. I was playing Rufus.

Have you played ff7? It's a huge fan favorite, old and low-tech by today's RPG standards, but a standard, as far as I'm concerned, and an all-around lovely game. ^_^

Oh, yes, DA is lovely for meeting people and learning about new things, isn't it? I've been here about 5 years now~ I met my current partner on the site, about 3 years ago, and now we're living together ^_^ The lovely RivkaZ.. she's quite an artist, too!

^_^ Thank you! I spent a long time roleplaying with those guys, and we had a lot of emotional situations together, so a lot of thought went into it. I'm glad you like it!

This is creepy.
Right now FFVII is causing me pain, and to try to take my mind off it I look up deviations related to "pain", and find this.

Beautiful. Seriously.
My god. I love this so much. I haven't come on DA for a looong time as I can't upload any pictures due to my retarded firewall, but after this i simply had to comment.
Ah ha, it comes just at the time I'm becomming obsessed with the turks {and Scarlet xD} again.
I have always been a lover of symbolisim and the way the birds represent pain, or as I prefer to think of it, Fear, it's.. Just wow.
Elena nursing it, Rufus locking it up, Reno embrassing it and Tseng running from it. Just... Wow.
I have no idea what to say.
But you have inspired me to draw the turks. ;D
SO YAY YOU =D
PSSS: =O Do you RP over MSN perhaps?
Or or know any good FF Rp sites? xD
I seem to be severly lacking in FF Rps D=
Aside from one site which is great but meh.
My magical adress is queen_numbers@hotmail.com
Add me if you wish :3

cenobitesquid Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2007
I did!
Firstly, thank you for your lovely comment! You were spot on with all the Turks' interpretations.
Secondly, it has come that time for ME as well to be interested in continuing ShinRa RP.. I have been doing it for longer than anything else, really, and actually, these days, long enough to be awkward (Since 8th grade, so that would be, what, 6 years? Woah! That's a lot of ShinRa!) But, I suppose it looks good on an RP resume? I do Rufus. Though I am occasionally convinced into doing Reno or Tseng. Or Vincent. But Rufus is always my choice.

I added you to my MSN, as m2cloudy(at)hotmail.com... I'll drop you a line when I see you on.

Well, it was, for the most part, a picture based on a certain RP group I was playing with. We didn't have a Rude, so I felt no need to include him. Thanks, though.

Hmmm..... Locking it up, letting it go, and hiding from it. *counts on fingers* That's Rufus, Reno, and Tseng...... But what the heck is Elena's?? I can't figure that one out.... XD But I like it alot. ^-^

:iconcenobitesquid:
cenobitesquid Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2006
Actually, in the case of that RP group, Reno was going after it XD But Elena is 'calm acceptance' or whatever. She had a pretty healthy technique - was pretty down to earth about things like that. Thanks much, though! I keep meaning to do more ShinRa fanart. Hmm. One of these days. When the AC hype wears off, and my old original FF7 people come back... someday..
