Oh I would love to study psychology XD I can't really figure out why charismatic people would most likely be psychotics, but the angel Lucifer (soon to be Devil) must have had some pretty damn good people skills if he managed to turn a large part of Heaven against God o_o and being able to tempt people ain't easy if nobody can stand being near you either o_o
Well, there's a history of it. Think of all the world's most evil leaders. What do they all have in common? Charisma and suave language.It's the same with cult leaders. I did this big study on the difference between cults and religion, and I had this whole sub section about cult-related crimes. Not only were the leaders behind the crimes absolutely psychotic, but they were extremely charismatic. With charisma, one could manipulate people to do anything (or almost anything depending on the individual). That's quite a bit of power, and power corrupts.
Psychology is awesome! Hella difficult though. But I've found that freelance research comes a lot easier than school-based research xD
*shiver* Man, this guy scares me. I think I would be just a LIIIITTLE freaked out to meet the devil incarnate if we were to meet in the Real. I'd probably be hiding behind my guy characters and voraciously reading my Bible while they fight. XD I do like all of the thought and detail you put into his character. Very fitting for the Devil to be charismatic and manipulative and all of these other things.
This guy has a right to be so smug; he's totally awesome. I can imagine Lucifer being a perfectionist, and the whole circus concept is quite intriguing to me. Also, the "no hands" picture is really well done. And that jacket; I bet it inspires much jealousy. You didn't let him, that's just what he wants you to think.
I really look forward to actually drawing the circus comic, although Lucifer isn't the main character in here >_> Lucifer is too devious for my brain to handle XD Maybe he's playing me like a puppet but I'm SURE I'm the boss! D8 I'm the artist aren't I? So he should do MY bidding!
I am so in love with your characters, but this guy... this guy here is going to be way too much fun to play with. (What a personality, haha. That jacket inspires much jealousy.) I say that because there's no way you're not getting in. Your style is so expressive, it's obvious how much fun you had putting it together. You get a real sense of the artist's personality, and the team dynamic promises to be great as well. I'll comment on your comic properly, later, but right now I feel a burning need to finish my own, haha, just so I can face you. : D
It certainly was a lot of fun to create my characters - it's a breath of fresh air for me since all of these characters are very very new for me, so I still have to get to know them myself. The only bit I didn't like was having to rush everything cos I have exams too ¬_¬; but YES! Do please finish your audition on time! Your artwork and characters are so fascinating that I simply have to verse you in the tournament! XD
