God is in the Rain by AnthropomorPhillie
God is in the Rain
Inspired by the Suicide Commando song of the same name.

I keep telling myself to get better you need to fail and learn from mistakes, but it still stings. The original idea was a bit of fan art for my own, as yet unwritten story, 'Who Durst Defy', where one of the protagonists, Lumene is sitting in the rain as droplets and pieces of Dea is falling on her, touching both on a scene from 'V For Vendetta', which the song is inspired by and 'Who Durst Defy' shares a few similarities with. Now it's just a mess though.

What have I succeeded with?
- I made it dark and crepy
- I managed the basic construction I imagined.

What have I failed with?
- Basic anatomy. I was afraid I'd lose interest if I started practicing anatomy before I began the real picture.
- Discernability. I wanted you to be able to look on it and immediately understand what was going on, but you need to stare at it for a while.

What have I learned?
- Graphite shines through coal.
- You should not make a sketch out of coal when the image will also be done largely with coal.
- I learned how to make miniscule rain droplets using charcoal.
- To be brave but careful. I just winged making the rain drops and it went well, so I just kept going and losing inhibition, and before I knew it I'd turned it into a mess.
- Not to change my mind about how I want to draw it, in the middle of the process. See the tits in the clouds? I added those because an anatomy study I'd done shone through the paper and I thought it'd be cool to see some sort of discernable piece of Dea in the clouds. At the time I thought it was cool, now I realize how stupid and cheesy it is.
Loading...
Something I saw :iconkai-chronaius: do, and feeling bored and not having made anything related to Dea for some time I thought I'd give it a try.

What's your full name?
You will call me Dea Szandor.

Do you have a default form? Or do you take many forms? Any favorites?

The effect of failure, to be rendered unable to maintain cohesion. No. I am to always remain amorphous and forming what tools I need to interact with my environs as I need them. The form of a human female you have become accustomed to is not a favourite, it's only function is to interact with an environment where the human shape is the ultimate.

Is that form/are those forms solid, a little bit melty or completely liquid?

I told you once. I am formless.

Can you harden your goo to make weapons, armor or tools? Or at least make yourself more solid?
Yes.

What are you made of? How would you describe your “goo?” 
My physical vessel consists of Planckian cells of refined tok'l, fallen from the primordial mass of Ubbo-Sathla and wrought into autonomy by the Elder Gods.

How were you made? Do you even know? In a lab? Magic? Another gooey character? Etc.

While the material of my physical vessel was discarded by Ubbo-Sathla and wrought by the Elder Gods the I, as you think of the I, did not exist. Shoggoth are bred aware without a self, perfect tools for the will of the Elder Gods, and so it remained as they were gathered and to uphold the temples on Yuggoth, and so they remained for millennia of millennia. When the humans attacked with the intention of genocide... ruin of the remaining shoggoth awaiting the return of our masters and all that was left was a trickling, the trickling found two humans and slaughtered them. The simple, idiot reactive substance broke one of them down and connected with the simple carbon-based vibrating neural connections, and the trance that upheld what the pathetic mammal called life was imitated by the vessel's cells. It tried managing it, tried expunging it as it was not a trance given by the Elder Gods, it was nonsensical and pointless, but it failed. The trance spread and then I knew life. I am not that human, I rejected what was of her, but that core principle, that idea of perceiving the universe, it could not be rid, and from it I grew.

Sure a bullet might pass through you, but what would electricity do? Can you be frozen? Burned? Cemented? Dissolved with acid? Can someone simply drink you? Etc.

Electric energy ground out in me the same way it would in water. The What I was oozed through the absolute zero temperatures of Yuggoth from the time your pitiful animal lineage squirmed out of the oceans. I remember the Christians screaming "kill it with fire" as the thermite exploded the scene, and I rose from the melting concretes and shrugged the combusting chemicals off me like waves shrugging off oil. I can flow through the molecular bonds of concrete, or dissolve them entirely only to leave a immaculate powder. No acidic known by humanity is fine enough to harm me. I feed people drops of me, to travel to the brain through their body for me to control them.

Can you feel pain?
My human form is a perfect synthesization of you weaker, carbon-based constructs. Through that I can feel pain and pleasure, exhaustion and restlessness, hunger and fullness, happiness and sorrow, as well as any immaterial perception of the anthropic trance.

Do you need to breathe? Sleep? Eat? Do you get tired? Sick? Etc.
If I choose to. I don't need to.

Can you morph into another person? Mimic an object perfectly? Or does everything still kind of have your colors and look like you?

I can imitate any surface, colour, tactile sensation, form and function you can imagine.

Can you assimilate others? Consume them?
I can break you down and analyse you, and I can combust your materials, but I can't partake nutrients to sustain myself.

Can you regenerate? Do you need to consume matter to replace it or can you even get more goo if it’s lost?

Had I access to a substantial source tok'l to refine, it's possible I could add it onto myself or replace what's been lost.

If someone touched you, are you slippery, sticky or somewhere in the middle?

It would depend on the form I have at the time.

If you oozed around a corner, are you thick and slow flowing, thin and fast flowing or somewhere in between?

It would depend on whether I need to or not.

If someone picked you up are you heavy, light or something like water?
It depends on what form I am in, and how many of them. Wholly compressed into my human form I weigh around 180kg.

Are you hot, warm or cold to the touch?
In my human form I maintain a body temperature befitting a healthy human. When formless my temperature depends on my environment.

What do you consume to live/grow? Do you even have to?

No. I utilize the energy of gravitational streams to sustain myself.

What is your preferred way of movement? Walking? Oozing? Jumping? Etc.
As with the form, I do not maintain a favourite. I utilize what locomotion would give me the best result for the situation.

Can you form tentacles? Extra limbs? Etc.
Yes.

How much concentration do you need to morph into complex shapes and do crazy things? Is even your default form difficult to maintain? Or can you for example melt and have 20 different tentacles doing 21 different things?

I need no more concentration to form than you do to move finger.

If you become splattered, separated or even just split in two, how easy or difficult is it to reform? How do you make your pieces come back?
I am formless. My consciousness is omnipresent in my vessel. I can not be "split in two", there can simply be "two of me", and unless I need to maintain more vessels I will seek out myself to become one again.

Anything else worth mentioning?
You are asking these questions.

Artist | Student | Traditional Art

My real name is not Viktoria RosÚn. Let's get that out of the way. All the implications of that I leave to you to figure out. All great artists have a stage name or an alter ego or a psuedonym, and that's mine.
I am not a great artist and I don't want to be one either for the very simple reason - artists are no better than orthodox religious people, from the nihilistic Buddhists to the inbred Creationists. I am here to become better at my Craft and document the process along the way as well as make a name for myself, but do not ever delude yourself into thinking I'm an artist. To be clear, I define an artist as someone who does something inteligent and mistakable for original in a creative way for his/her own sake without any kind of pragmatic reason, and since DA hardly has a single person matching that description I figure it's as good a place as any to start. Don't get me wrong, I am not saying there's anything wrong in being an artist, I'm just saying I don't want to be an artist because I find no satisfaction in that thinking.
I am here to develop and hone above all my ability as an illustrator - find my style, learn to work creatively, do it proficiently, which means I want criticism for all my work. What was good, what was bad, how you liked it.
The reason is I am developing the base for a longer series or of novels based in a futuristic Cthulhu cycle exploring themes of independence, religion, personality, power, evil and goodness, all set within a erotic sci-fi/fantasy drama called "Who Durst Defy", and while I am driven I am far from near being able to pull that off. That's the main reason why I want to hone my artistic ability, but more than that I have discovered I have a generally creative mind and feel good when I do creative things such as write or draw and I would rather do that than anything else the average drone's life has to offer. I don't want to do this to make money (I am not that stupid) but I want to get by on it one day.
Most obvious things you'll learn about me is I am a nyctophile, meaning I find alot more comfort in darkness than in light, and I am an anthropomorphile, a faculty term I've invented meaning "a strong, passionate, sexual as well as spiritual desire and/or connection to a entity defineable as more than human" but that does not mean I like Furry. Porn is one thing, a starved woman can't be a picker, but other than that I do not want any connection to Furry as a movement because I do not care for nor follow that style. I draw anthropomorphs, not furry, and there is a difference between the two. Anyone who claims anything different is either living in denial or plain ignorant. Yes, there are similarities, but it's like comparing wolves with those chihuahuas you see in handbags. I've thought a bit about what it is that seperate these two genre's and I think I've come up with a fairly good explanation of the differences between them. Before you read though, let me make it plain I have little against furries as such, I simply want it plain that what I draw isn't furries as such.



1. Furry is a part of Anthropomorphism, not the other way around.

Fred Patten, a historian born in 1940 who have been able to follow the evolution of the genre first-hand, claims it originated at a sci-fi convention in the 1980's, tough furries as we've come to know them has existed since much earlier in the 1900's (take Disney's Robin Hood for example). Anthropomorphism on the other hand is exceedingly much older than any of these examples, and much more diversified. Stories of human-like animals or animals with human minds and reasoning or humans with animalistic features can be found on every continent and in every culture. The Germanic werewolves, the Greek Minotaur, La Belle et la Bŕte, the Dove of the Old Testament, the Were-lions of Africa, these are just a few of the many.




2. Furries are without exception depicted in a cartoon- or manga style.

By this I mean furry artists generally don't bother with making realistic drawings, they're always stylized, and often in a manner similar to one-another. A common denominator is I have yet to see a furry artist bothering to draw fur, but simply making a field with a few "pointy edges" to give the character a feeling of having fur. If I am unclear as to what I mean with this, the works of Walt Disney, :iconjaynaylor:, Kadath, and :iconkaboozle: ought to clue you in. Now you may point out old depictions of for example werewolves, woodcuts and the like, have a smilar style, to which I say more often than not the entire depiction is given an even fur pattern, and when it's not it's often meant to depict shades, depth, light, et cetera. Another denominator is furries can give human facial expressions no matter how their faces are designed. Of course, animals can do expressions we can interpret as simimilar to our own and it can be argued that furries therefor can do them to, and I could let it slide should it be an expression not unrealistically exaggerated. On a sidenote, furries can pronounce human words and sounds which we know are impossible for animals to replicate with a snout for example.



3. Furries are unimaginative parodies of the entire concept of the borderline between human and animal.
This is probably the most offensive title of the argumentation for where furry ends and anthropomorphism begins but I can explain why it is also very accurate. The Furry fandom is very closed-off if you compare it to the rest of all that anthropomorhism can be. The word "Anthropomorphism" is actually a synonym for "personification" and it applies not just to animals, but everything. Everything not human with human-like features and capabilities is an anthropomorph. Death as a skeleton with a scythe in black robes is a anthropomorph and so is an Easterly wind depicted as a cherub blowing ships across the sea. But for now we'll focus on the animalistic. By "unimaginative" I mean furries are essentially completely human. The one thing seperating a furry and a human is its exotic body. More often than not furries can wear clothes, they can use machines, they have a human society, and they have a human capacity for reasoning and empathy. Anthropomorph's are supposed to be in-between human and animal, and that in itself opens a world of possibilities very rarely utilized in furry. Which brings me to "parody of the concept between human and animal". What I mean by parody is the mocking trivialization of the world of possibility that lie there. "Between human and animal...is a human with a nearly human body." It's almost disrespectful. Almost. Anthropomorph's are very rarely not meant to symbolize something, usually that humans are animals in one way or another, which we through-out history have been struggling hard to deny, or put a Devil's stamp on (take the vampire, which is essentially the embodiment of the deadly sins) but it can be so much more and often is.




4. Furries is not taken seriously.

There's a very good reason people mock Furry fandom - it has yet to be depicted in a way that can be taken seriously. You have to admit all in all furry can be split into three undergenre's - porn, childrens TV-series, and minor psuedo-drama's. Furry porn is not taken seriously because it's porn and while porn in itself is often mocked furry can all to easily be interpreted as "beastiality in denial". Kid's TV-series with furries is directed at a very distinct audience - kids. What we like as kids is very rare to like as adults because we are taught to put childish things behind us as we grow older because they're often clashing with reality, which we need to embrace if we are to function in society (we are taught). This I really blaim the most for furries not being taken seriously. Finally, what I mean by "psuedo-drama's" is a general drama that not only isn't very good, but could function just as well with humans as with furries, because all characters are essentially humans with fur. Anthropomorph's aren't taken very seriously either, but it is mocked to a much smaller degree than furries. I think the reason is because everything I have already argumented - anthropomorphic animals are in total percieved as more realistic in depiction as well as mentality and nature.

Of course, this is just a generalization and depictions of furry/anthropomorphism often cross these lines in one way or another. These are just a few rules of thumb that I have written down to help maintain the distinction.
