'..One and two and three and four, Four and three and two and one, Four and three, Whatta Mask!'
This pic was inspired by several songs... though mostly is first came about when I listened to Whatta Mask
Why Whatta Mask? Because of the music and lyrics. Think about it. It counts to 4 then backwards to 1. To me it fits Cry rather well.
We have Cryatoic (Cry), Mad!Cry, Virus!Cry and the Cry's real self...
We see Cry up front because its who we imagine and hear everyday when he makes videos... Mad!Cry (fanmade) is a 'what if he cracks' self, the horror games he plays and the stress finally get to him and he goes insane. Virus!Cry (also fanmade) represents his influence on the net, infecting everyone with his voice and deep thinking and humor, but what if his influence corrupted and it comes back for him? To snatch away his life and make him be who the world (or at least the obsessed fans) want him to be? And finally we have his real self...the man behind the mask (who shall not be named since its his pet peeve)... but he's shadowed out because we never see his face, don't know who he really is and represents his privacy, wishing to be out of sight but watches us from the shadows.
The lyrics give the order. 1. Cry, 2, Mad!Cry, 3. Virus!Cry and finally 4. his real self. (Virus and Mad can be switched around depending on preference) But its the order we constantly see a lot, but very few think of 4, 3, 2, 1. Whatta Mask! means (to me) is that no matter the order, we will never know who or how Cry truly is and that's how he likes it and we must respect it. Thus wears the mask so you don't see him, but he sees you as you are.
Whatta Mask by Cyberpunkers - Cry
Monster w/ Growl by Skillet - Mad!Cry/Cry
Back to the Mad (or at least the insaneish park of the song) (I forgot what artist) - Mad!Cry
I'm Still Here by Johnny Rzeznik - Cry's real self (because this man is strong to stand firm under all the demands and fussing around him by his life and fans. People forget that he's just as human as you and me.)
Epic Battle Fantasy 3 Music - Divine Madness - Virus!Cry (because he scares the holy shit out of me. He can appear calm, talking to you then just glitches behind you to attack if provoked)
MegaManX 5 Opening Theme - Cry/Mad!/Virus!/real self (because I can totally see them in some theme opening sequence)
This took about... 3 days to make. Well 3 1/2 days.
Cry/his real self/Sup Guy belong to well himself -
Mad/Virus belong... to whomever the hell made them (you guys rock for making them!)
Art by me! -
And thank you to everyone that like this and/or favorite. It means a lot to me. :3 I'm happy that you enjoyed this piece!
