'HOT MESS' Contest Entry For *SilentReaper 's contest, [link]
I like the concept of animals representing parts of someone's personality, so I entered.

Materials: sketchbook, pencil, Sakura inking pens, photoshop
I will now try to channel the Elephant and be as honest as I can.

CAT- Pride of Mine/ AL / Lawrence (I'm not sure what his name is): I always thought everyone else was somehow beneath me, and I distanced myself from allot of really friendly people, this is my sarcastic, sneering people-resenting side (inspired by this poem [link])

RED LIZARD- Hunger: yes, that red lump on my shoulder is a lizard, it is every negative thought that I have, very bad, very gross, very ugly, very stuck. (somewhat inspired by a scene in CS Lewis' book: The Great Divorce)

FIREY STALLION- Malekey: Drive and passion, usually for something positive, Malekey (yes its a cheesy name, deal with it) is what moves me to work on something, I don't like leaving things half done, and if I really want to do something then I will do it to my fullest capability

Elephant- Petros: calm, honest and contemplative, and able to work in groups, the Elephant is my loving and nurturing side, the part that loves stories and teaching young kids, also the part that loves song, Petros only rears his head occasionally, but when he does, people tend to notice

HOG-NOSED SNAKE- Wit: (I know the color is wrong for a hog-nose snake, but the picture already had to much brown) Wit is the creative, resourceful and inventive side, also sometimes the weird, morbid and creepy side of me. (Hog-noses have no arms or legs, but use their sharp tiped nose to dig and look for food, if thats not being resourceful and making the best of a situation, I don't know what is.

RAVEN- (I think its name is Skroop) This is the part of me that I still don't know, I am constantly learning more about myself and the Raven is teaching me more and more, I guess it could be considered the spiritual and/ or mysterious side of me

I hope this wasn't to long, thanks bothering to look!
