Huh.
So that's what depression looks like, huh?

I LOVE how you put on there that the victim registers a heaviness. That is very true! Many people think depression feels like an emptiness inside of them, and maybe for some people, that's true. But most people who experience depression actually feel like there is a heaviness in their body that doesn't belong.

These are awesome and could be a great teaching tool, please make a poster or 5X8 cards. Because they are so cool young adults would identify with them and they could be used to help them express themselves.

Beauty within simplicity. I like both the eye catching design of the monster, as well as its hand-written name.

Wow this is soo cool! The depression monster is soo cute ;3; despite its actualness not being cute. -suffers from clinical depression. Not fun-

Your takes on real monsters based on illnesses, they look bad ass (so much contradictory xD OTL )

Awesome work <3!

Goodness, what clever designs! I looked at this and a few other designs of your monsters, and was pretty impressed. The way symbolism is used with this monster's design is very interesting, as well as the detail about how the monster "feeds" from its host, and forces negative feelings onto them... I like the fact that it gets flustered and panicked when it bumps into other things, as well. Very reminiscent of depression. 

I like the idea of these monsters embodying these mental and emotional disorders. Kinda helps shed light on what the people with these disorders must go through, in the form of a creatively designed monster. c:

I love your style, as well :) I'll definitely have to check out more of your gallery soon!
