  • Thank you so much, Jaiden and Dave, for making this song, and for showing so many people what it really means to have an eating disorder.
    I know I'm late to jump on the bandwagon, but I reaaally love this song so I had to make an animatic for it!
    Everyone is so proud of you, Jaiden, for coming out and being brave about everything!
    Also can I just say how hard it was drawing her so sad for like 90% of the video? Asdffgjgjfks sorry haha

    The "backstory" of this song: tvclip.biz/video/VhEATqXnXCI/video.html
    The lyrics! (if you don't know them you should totally read this bit :) )
    [Verse 1: Boyinaband]
    Mirror mirror on the wall, yeah
    Tunnel vision on the flaws
    In the scale of things it’s unimportant
    So no talking, but it’s still an intrusive thought
    Tried hard to correct it, yeah
    But nothing was effective, uh
    No one else seemed so obsessed with it
    Things were desperate until the voice crept in
    "I can help you, trust me, you’re ready"
    It seemed dangerous
    But it said to have faith in it
    "The secret is to just be empty"
    Didn’t know if it was wise to listen, but
    What could it hurt to try?
    [Verse 2: Jaiden]
    And at first, it was working
    But then things were emerging
    Cracked lips and tired eyes
    I’m hungry with no appetite
    I’m shivering and shaking, and I tell myself it’s fine, but
    You can’t fool your body, you can only fool your mind, yeah
    Empty
    I just need to be empty
    Hide from anybody who’ll prevent me
    Just fill up on water and shame
    No, I’m not hungry, I just ate
    I’ve developed a taste for this
    Endure the never-ending ache
    Convince myself I’m in control and it’s not
    All that voice that makes me sick
    [Chorus: Boyinaband & Jaiden]
    Inside it’s em-em-em-empty
    I know, I know it’s wrong
    I’m looking, but I can’t see myself
    Inside it’s em-em-em-empty
    I know, I know it’s wrong
    But it’s so hard to stop it alone
    [Verse 3: Boyinaband]
    Been getting even worse
    All the days begin to merge, yeah
    Just a blurry haze and now it’s
    Almost second nature to ignore the urges
    Can’t trust my own nature
    Every calorie a failure
    Gotta push the intake down every day
    ‘Cause the voice comes back to say
    "You want to eat? Bite your tongue"
    Don’t want to stay an embarrassment
    Just have to stomach it
    "They don't know what you want"
    A tug of war against common sense
    Don’t wanna believe that I’ve overstepped
    [Verse 4: Jaiden]
    But it’s so overwhelming
    And I hope no one can tell
    ‘Cause the numbers keep decreasing
    This ordeal is becoming routine, check
    Arms, back, neck, thighs
    Suck it in and pinch my sides
    The scales are betraying me
    The mirror is a lie, yeah
    Numbers
    It all comes down to numbers
    I know it’s wrong but
    Just because you know you’re colorblind
    Doesn’t mean you can see the colors
    Fine, I admit I’m addicted
    But the hunger feels good, how do I quit this
    I know I could die, I’ve seen the statistics
    But the voice is with me through thick and thin
    [Chorus: Boyinaband & Jaiden]
    Inside it’s em-em-em-empty
    I know, I know it’s wrong
    I’m looking, but I can’t see myself
    Inside it’s em-em-em-empty
    I know, I know it’s wrong
    But it’s so hard to stop it alone
    Inside it’s em-em-em-empty
    I know, I know it’s wrong
    I’m looking, but I can’t see myself
    Inside it’s em-em-em-empty
    I know, I know it’s wrong
    But it’s so hard to stop it alone
    [Bridge: Boyinaband & Jaiden]
    I can reach out
    To someone not like me
    If you ask for help, it doesn’t make you weak
    I can reach out
    To someone not like me
    I can help my mind learn to trust my body
    I can reach out
    To someone not like me
    If you ask for help, it doesn’t make you weak
    I can reach out
    Ignore what the voice tells me
    I can help my mind learn to trust my body
    [Chorus: Boyinaband & Jaiden]
    Inside it’s em-em-em-empty
    I know, I know it’s wrong
    I’m looking, but I can’t see myself
    Inside it’s em-em-em-empty
    I know, I know it’s wrong
    But it’s so hard to stop it alone
    Inside it’s em-em-em-empty
    I can reach out (I can reach out oh-oh-oh-oh)
    Inside it’s em-em-em-empty
    I can reach out (I can reach out)

    I used IbisPaint X to draw the pictures, and VideoShop to put it all together!
    I also have a brand new webcomic! www.tapas.io/series/lostnfound

    I love how this video portrays eating disorders.
    The disorder is an inner monster talking to Jayden and talking her into the bad habits further and further.
    At a certain point she tries to escape but the disorder keeps trying to pull her back in so she calls for help and Dave hears her and sees what ging on and rushes to help pull her out.
    Jayden is ashamed of herself but Dave doesn't judge and is just happy she's alright and in time she manages to be completely happy with herself and stay out of the darkness/disorder.

    I know that this is an animatic, but the way almost every frame is sooooo different from the previous one is kinda not that pleasing-- oof, I'm gonna get hate, aren't I? Lol, don't take this as an attack, I'll just say try to keep at least some frames, like the chorus perhaps, just happening in one setting. It'll be more pleasing to me if you had done the whole chorus like it's all in Jaiden's head. Trust me, consistency is key :)
    But other than that, THIS WAS FREAKING AMAZINGGGGGGG~~

    • ShootingStarfish
      ShootingStarfish  2 months ago

      I think I understand what you mean! I’ll definitely keep it in mind next time I draw something to a song!

    • French Chara
      French Chara 2 months ago +1

      @ShootingStarfish UvU thanks for not taking it as a personal attack(like some people >:/) but anyways, consistency-- maybe like, you can draw one big drawing and then, shift your way around this drawing for a few frames/seconds. You can also make a few frames showing movement from this place to another place(does that makes sense) like those weird movement lines people do... I don't really know if the second ones very effective though, but the first one; for sure! :3

    • ShootingStarfish
      ShootingStarfish  2 months ago

      Aaa thank you so much for the critique! I really really appreciate it since I’m always looking for ways to improve! :D
      But could you explain maybe _how_ I could make it more consistent?
