If We Hold On Together by oneeyedrobot If We Hold On Together by oneeyedrobot
Please DOWNLOAD to see the full version, it's MUCH bigger than this!

Right after I finished reading the update showing The Rift, my itunes thought it would be charming to play this song. Clearly I bawww'd a lot, and then drew this.

This is amazing! I love everyone looks sad, or regretful, but Terezi is just there like "Screw you guys, I have a scalemate!"

Crying and crying.
This is just awesome, gotta say, part of the sadness is that for certain characters it's getting worse. The song doesn't really hold true, troll after troll are dying now.

I love this picture - also I never though to connect that song to them but... wow. You just made me so sad. D: Score one for you.

Er, that aside - I've seen your work before and I've always loved how you don't draw Trolls just like humans with add-ons. You really make them their own and I LOVE that. It was kind of shocking, when I first saw one of your pictures, but I've come to really like it. ^^ Bravo.

AWW it's so so sad. ;~; I'd listen to the song but I'm afraid I'd bawl my eyes out or something. Maybe I will later dhfjd

I like how you played out the emotion of this piece through their expressions, mostly. Very nice job on that! : D I also like how you draw poses, you made it look so... kinetic. Like, I can just imagie everyone getting together and hugging and crying JUST by the way you drew them dfshfsd

OVER ALL I love your style and I love this piece and hnnngh <3333 You deserve a gold star for this

This is a really touching piece of art you've got here, especially with the music playing in the background.

It's sort of lost its impact now that the trolls have started killing each other, but I'd like to think that they had a moment like this in the beginning of their exile.
Reply
:iconpetgirlsweet:
petgirlsweet Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011
On the contrary, it seems to have even more impact now. Freeze them in this past moment when they're all still together and alive, and it's even more heartbreaking.

Well, maybe not with Gamzee there.

:iconleftinstitches:
Leftinstitches Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011
You see, though, Eridan had everyone's genocide planned from the beginning. This may have not been the idea situation, but he still wanted to kill everyone.

If anything, he's /more/ out of place than Gamzee. At least Gamzee actually liked everyone when he was a stoner.

:iconpetgirlsweet:
petgirlsweet Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011
I guess everyone's interpretation of Eridan is a little different. Personally, I see him as that kid that snaps one day and shoots up the school. He may hate people of a lower blood than him on principle, but he was still going to Karkat for his relationship issues, which says to me that he was starting to grow up a little. What crossed the line was Vriska using him and Sollux getting all over his Feferi.

:iconleftinstitches:
Leftinstitches Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011
Well, the thing is, he wants to commit genocide from the very beginning. Hussie leads us to believe that he doesn't really want to kill everybody and that he's just misunderstood, and then Eridan goes and destroys the Matriorb, effectively dooming their species. In a way, he might as well have committed genocide, because the trolls now have no way to reproduce.

I think that the entire point of it was that, no, Eridan is not a Jerk With a Heart of Gold, he was a Complete Monster the whole time. His neediness was more due to his lifelong Moirail rejecting him just as the game started, and less due to actually wanting friends out of them.

Yeah, ha ha, I definitely didn't imagine that ever happening back when I drew this xD. I'm sure at some point they were all pretty close, at least I hope so!

Yeah, on some level they were close. I guess you can only stay trapped with eleven other trolls for so long before you go crazy.
