Chin up, Soldier. by J-Harper Chin up, Soldier. by J-Harper
A collab between me and :iconoomizuao:
She sketched and lined this, while I colored and shaded it. 


Basically, Ryder came across little Spike here, probably saw him crying along with some bruises on his body (which I of course forgot to ADD nfsdbvgfsdgfsd). Having endured abuse himself as a child, Ryder reassures him that everything will be okay - probably after letting him know how his situation was to back it up. 

Although, if Ryder knew exactly what was happening to Spike then old Charles would have to run FAST.


Oomi owns little Spike here - Ryder is mine.

heh.. I love the picture... And it reminds me of what I've always said "There's at least one voice that will care.... And that can make a difference in your life..." The fact he's there for Lil' Spike, cheering him up, proves that point... And I can't help but like it... Wonderful job...

You guys did amazing job. just amazing...breath taking. ugh I love it. If you guys did another collab with the same characters when ryder met spike when he is older that would be amazing or ryder beating up spike uncle lol, just saying. In all im looking for you guys doing another collab in the futher.

You two did an awesome job! I like Spike's as looks at Ryder. And this really adds more to Ryder here. He lo oks almost fatherly comforting Spike.

Your half is astonishing! You did a great job with coloring and blending. The color in the background seem neutral, but very calm at the same time. Do more! Heheheh....

Charles would no doubt be living in fear the rest of life if Ryder confronted him.

Ooownt what a heartwarming drawing, Spike does need a friend that really understands what he is passing through Sniff 
And now I kinda want to tell Ryder what Charlie's been doing to Spike, someone needs to beat the crap out of that old man  Grump

Not his father - Spike's parents are dead/gone.
He lives with his uncle, who is more or less sexually abusive.
