Secrets Exposed by LordDominic Secrets Exposed by LordDominic
There's actually a bit of a story to this one.
For a few months now, I have been considering having Alexis having a bed-wetting problem. It seems like a workable character trait, something that could cause her a great deal of insecurity and anxiety and in turn feed into her more negative behaviors. After thinking about it for a while, I decided to draw something based on that idea.
Probably worth noting that she is a teenager and in high school, so she's a bit old for that to really be "normal" I suppose.

This really is the worst thing that could happen in regards to her "problem", being exposed in front of her classmates, having them find out that she wears diapers.
(I am currently undecided if this "event" is canon, or if this is merely a nightmare or anxiety-driven fantasy of some sort.)

I tried to really capture a feeling of humiliation, anxiety and fear with this one, the dark background and her posture really play up that this is not a fun experience for her. Good contrast between her bright clothes and that dark wall, too. Definitely proud of how this one turned out, even if the subject matter is a bit iffy for some audiences.

Very well done. Her agony is palpable. As a retired children's pastor, I've run into this problem on occasion. A situation like this can be devastating for a young lady. I think you pretty much nailed it.

Thanks! I can imagine this sort of thing certainly wouldn't be fun to go through. I'm glad you think I nailed the emotions here.

That's why I enjoy your work so much. It proves art does not have to be really complex to show emotion or tell a story. Thanks.

I actually have something to contribute to this discussion, rather than a simple comment on the picture, this time.

True Story: When I was working on the farm, the other farmhands would let their girlfirends come over sometimes. One such girlfriend was a senior in highschool. Her boyfriend started tickling her and she blurted out "Stop it! You know I just quit wetting the bed!"

So, maybe it's not as fanciful a problem as one would think?

That is an interesting contribution. It does seem like something that would be a fairly common problem, but still something that she would get teased for quite a bit if the secret got out.
