How long would each character sleep on average? (Including the girls?)
Anonymous

uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh….

Meph and Providence don’t really sleep, although I suppose they can rest (their schedule’s just don’t call for it, haha).  Demons can’t sleep (although I bet they can get tired and wish they could!), and I suppose…. Angel’s probably can, and for however long they want, but they don’t have to.

Jonathan probably gets a typical 6-8 hour sleep, but he sleeps in waaaay late on weekends.  I imagine he’s probably tired a lot and doesn’t feel like 8 hours of sleep is enough.

Lil may be about the same… although she can probably function on a lot less sleep than Jonathan.

Gee, I’ve never really thought about this, haha.

does john like wearing clothes that are more colorful, maybe more stylish and is simply avoiding it because hes a teenager like that and doesnt want to draw to much attention to himself? or is a boring grey outfit really all hes capable of?

Both, I guess!  He doesn’t want to draw attention to himself and it’s probably all he’s capable of.

I might’ve drawn him in some 90’s grunge/flannel once but I’d hardly call that stylish. 

Actually, this is probably oddly personal, but sometimes I think of Sock and Jonathan as these two separate parts of myself, and, more specifically, who I was in high school.  Sock was how I felt, but Jonathan was how I presented myself.  Demeanor-wise, anyway.  Fashion-wise…. I dressed like a combination of both of them.  Big baggy hoodies/jackets, but skirts layered on top of pants and goofy leggings.  Fun facts about my personal life I suppose.

Is Sock secretly Mephisto's child?

I didn’t plan on that being the case (although I guess Meph wouldn’t have either, haha).  I think their relationship will develop into something resembling a father/son dynamic, but that’s about it.  You can have whatever headcanon’s you want though!

Is Sock's skirt pleated?

I’ve been waiting my whole life for someone to ask this question.

Sometimes, yes, in illustrations. But for the animation, I had to simplify it. I think at some point I might’ve even wanted to do a plaid overlay on it as well. Sooo…. Surprise! Sock is actually a schoolgirl.

I’m not sure this qualifies as an answer. It CAN be pleated, if you want.

Ok so masterpost of questions about w2h

1. When are the character’s birthdays?
2. Does Mephi have any special powers?
3. What are Providence’s powers limited to?
4. Did Sock have any mental disorders?
5. Does he feel…

I just now noticed this, haha.  Here goes!

  1. Okay so personal moral standards.  I wouldn’t say he feels bad about doing his job…  but he doesn’t exactly enjoy it anymore.

    I’m still kind of working out the kinks, but I have this idea that Hell isn’t necessarilly something Providence had planned, nor is Mephistopheles’ job.  I think in the W2H universe, some people just mess up so astronomically bad that their souls aren’t allowed to pass into any realm other than Earth or Hell. 

    So maybe at first Meph found some of them to be good company, (“Hey, Cain, wanna’ go grab a drink?”) and more and more of them just started accumulating…  and so he’d have to find ways to deal with them, or filter them…. so his whole “job” just sort of developed from that.  He brought it all on himself.

    I don’t know, still working out the kinks.
    Also this isn’t to say he can’t feel remorse or guilt, he just doesn’t feel it about his job.
  2. I assume you mean “similar to Hades” in that there are different feilds based on the severity of the sin, and the punishments are based specifically on the crime?  (Can you tell I just skimmed a wiki article?). 

    I’ve kinda struggled with what exactly the punishments in Hell would be like.  I tend to default to the idea that it USED to be more of a “fire/brimstone/burning of the flesh” kind of deal and that was just too much upkeep, so the reconstruction is an attempt to shift to the “psychological/specific punishment” kind of deal.  I’m not sure if that answers your question exactly, haha.

  3. Ahhhh yes, the relationship.  Yes yes yes.  I do plan to elaborate on that… glad you’re excited to see it!!

  4. Maybe it was a little like South Park’s hell.  complete with apartment complexes and parks to walk through and sensitive guys from the 90s.  Hahaaa



Excuse me, this is a dumb question but if welcome to hell had a rating (like for what age the audience is supposed to be) what do you think the rating would be?
Anonymous

Oh, no, that’s not a dumb question at all!  It’s not an easy one though!

If we’re talking MPAA, I’d say probably PG.  At least for the short.  If we’re talking about the longer coarse of the story?  I could maybe see PG-13.  Just for violence and some sensitive subjects.  I don’t plan on using anything more than mild swearing (damn, hell, MAYBE ass).

If we’re just talking about online… an intended audience or demographic, I’d say 13-30.  Maybe that’s being generous, I don’t know… I’m just going off of my own experience, and also the age-range I tend to see here on tumblr (which is actually more specifically like 15-20).

It’s kind of weird to think about actually, because it seems like there are a lot of shows/movies/etc where the subject matter (theme) is harmless, but the content (dialogue, action) is edgy and profane.  W2H is sort of the opposite… you know?  There’s obviously a lot of touchy subjects goin’ on, but I do make an effort to present them in a way that’s approachable. Don’t wanna offend anyone with my homoerotic demon cartoon about murder and suicide!  

Hope that helps!

Today, when I was here on Tumblr, I saw a post with this Link, and as curious as I am, I watched it. It was great. I loved it! The characters! Sock. And the animation was really good. I loved these dorks, so, as I was telling my sis to watch it too, I started this drawing as a doodle… I eventually escalated to this, and I like it. 
Go and watch "Welcome to Hell"
You’ll enjoy it.

Sock is a sweet but somewhat unstable teen who commits suicide after the accidental murder of his own parents. In Hell he meets Mephistopheles, the amicable manager of the underworld, who offers him a job: Sock is to become a demon, tasked with haunting humans and driving them to suicide. At first this seems like Sock’s dream job—a way he can finally act on his desires without consequence—but after meeting his first target, a disinterested highschooler named Jonathan, he finds himself with another desire that just might be stronger… and just might have a consequence.
