Who am I talking to now? by Naoru Who am I talking to now? by Naoru
A little series of doodles I did a few weeks ago in my sketch book of one of my RP characters, Devin (and his other personality).
He has multiple personality disorder, and the funnest thing about writing this, is sometimes writing from a perspective of seeing Devin as a normal person suddenly change into someone else.
Of course with this disorder each personality has just as much individuality as the other, they just inhabit the same body, so I mostly write from each separate perspective. But yeah, I have a lot of fun writing sometimes the 'Devin looking strange' perspective too, as seen here XDD

Oh yeah, the doctor calls Perry 'Ben' in this, because Perry lied about his name to them lol

I'm really looking forward to drawing 'Devin being nuts' rather then the two of them together, although I'll draw both hehe :D

I love the way you've worked all those subtle mannerisms into his expressions, drawing the same character in the same position so many times and each of them different again, very nice :)

I talk to myself all the time and I reenact scenes in my head constantly. (That and I've been a musician for eight years.) Do I have multiple personality disorder? 'Cause if so, then I look at it as some sort of a mental advantage...

Naoru Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
XD Thankfully not, by medical definition, any 'disorder' is only one if its a disadvantage rather then a advantage in life! But yeah, talking to yourself is totally normal (I do it all the time!), multiple personality disorder is where someone has created a whole different identity as a defense mechanism to stressful situations. Most of the time they're a different person too, and often not aware that they are inhabiting the same body as someone else, its very interesting =3

Really good transitioning between the personalities; very well done!

(I don't know about Dissociative Identity Disorder/ Multiple Personality Disorder being only in females though. I'm pretty sure it's more common in females, but by no means female exclusive. I have taken a few psychology classes and I don't remember ever hearing that.)

BUT ANYWAY. Good job! X)

Thank you! :) And yeah, I've read up ALOT about MPD, so I know its more common in females (I can understand why) but men can develop it too ^^

Yup. :> Just making sure I was saying something since the person who commented above me said it was female-only and I was like "wut, nope". XD But I know you know what you're doing. You're awesome like that. ;D

In psychology we learnt that, it's only women that have had multiple personality disorder. For example, sybil and Eve white, black and jane. If you want to know more about it, i'd suggest looking up the Thigpen and Cleckely case study on eve. (this was the first recorded case of MPD) it could really help if your planning on using Devin and Ben in the future as a character. :)

Its much more common in woman, but men do sometimes develop it too ^^ Although Devin and Perry are just for fun (they are a roleplay character rather then something I'm doing for a proper comic or anything :) ) I've done a lot of research into MPD and read many books about it before! My Mum is a psychologist, so I get ahold of lot of books about that kind of stuff XD I've never read about the first ever recorded case of MPD though, I'll have to give that a read, thanks for the recommendation! :D

No problem, it's really interesting. But I do feel sorry for the actual primary personality when they snap back and have no clue as to where they are.

Whoa. That's intense. I really like how you did the transitions between the personalities; you could totally see the change in his facial expression and posture. The language sounds really authentic. This must have been a really interesting strip to draw. Great job, Naoru!

Thank you! I doodle Devin and Perry alot, so you'll see much of him when I get round to scanning in my sketchbooks! And XD likewise, you have the most awesome RP characters! :D We should really start a RP 0_o I finally got my life sorted out, so I should have more free time to do that now YAY! XD

Multiple personality disorded is very interesting. I wonder what they really think....? I like his/ their character/s ^^

Naoru Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
Thank you! ^^ Yeah its a very interesting disorder, and fun to write ^^ Devin's subconscious sort of uses it as a defense mechanism, so whenever he gets stressed, his other personality comes out and carries all the nasty experiences, so he grew up becoming much more nasty and anxious then Devin :<
