Sleepy cub by Ghostbear2k Sleepy cub by Ghostbear2k
A long day of playing with his plushy Sammy, some serious attempts (^^' ) at creating some fanart of his favorite TV series Doctor Who finally took it's toll on Sascha.
One minute he was still sitting comfortably on his armchair, dressed into a cute hooded sweatshirt and wearing some thicker padding than his usual pullups. Absently his took a few sips out of his sippy cup every now and then before popping his pacifier back into his mouth, being fully absorbed in his work. Sammy was looking down on the coloring book, giving some advice on how to color his new picture, a TARDIS.
"Like thish? Mhh, yessh Shammy..." he mumbled with his soother between his teeth. "..I fink dish mi...."
Before the little bear could finish his reply sleep hit him like a train. Yawning loudly the sippy cup slid from his grip and fell to the floor, along with the coloring book and crayons. A second later the rest of the bear followed gravity, flopping down on the carpet in an adorable crinkly and slightly snoring heap of fur that only a child or a cat could find comfortable.
Being a little bear-lynx hybrid ... probably both. ;)

D'aww inducing drawing, done by the highly talented and super-friendly wen.
Thank you sooooooooooooo much for it *hugs*
I really love that sleeping pose ... I think I did this myself a lot of times when I was still a little kid. Uhm, still kinda do this sometimes, falling asleep in impossible sleeping positions sometimes.
Really cute and I like the added details like the TARDIS in my lil bears coloring book. I love Doctor Who :3
So hop over and make sure to give lots of love to Wen. ^^

I love the coloring in this picture. Very nice and soft on the eyes. 

So explain to me, why does wear diapers and act like a baby at such an age.

Wen has a nice shading style. Sadly it's near impossible now to get a slot.

Because he is just a little boy ^^ He's not really that old

Well, you say your persona is ages between 5 and 13. Most children outgrow those items by the age of 3 or 4.


Or am I just overthinking this?

Or just short if you don't wanna read the wall of text... Just enjoy the picture for what it is: A little boy, totally tuckered out and fallen asleep where he sat.
Don't think too much into it.

I think you might overthink it. ^.^''
Lemme explain..

On most pictures he's between 5 and 8. The higher ages are not used that often.
At this age, I think some few things can more easily be accepted. Maybe he's a bit of a late bloomer, concerning those things, and needs a bit longer. Plus at night on in their sleep it's not really uncommon for older children to wet the bed.
Or maybe in this Anthro-World he lives in ... people live longer and their cubby phase is longer too. And kids love to play.
I never really defined that because of one reason: It's not that important.
If you look at most of my cubby pictures you might notice one thing ... there is scene and there's usually (not in all bot most pictures) a little story hidden in them. Yes, he's diapered, loves to play with more childish item and carries his plushie friend around (which I always do as well at convention or when I am travelling (he rides in my backpack then)).
But that is not the central part of the picture.
Mhh well.. the plush lynx Sammy usual is, as he (yes male pronoun) is the kid's favorite stuffy, nighttime snugglebuddy, companion and someone who's always around to soak up tears and calm him down if something frightens the little bear. ^^' But the rest is not.
It's there and it's an important part of him, sure. But it's the picture itself that should grab peoples attention, that's what I work for when I think up a picture and talk to the artist.
And not meant as "OMG look at me, look at me I'M WEARING A DIAPER! LOOK AT ME! SEE? SEE?"

Hope I could explain it a bit :3

Thanks for the explanation. In this universe. People are more tolerant and let kids act like "kids" no matter what age they are. I get the bedwetting part. Even if  he's a bit delayed on the potty training. Though I guess its just aesthetic after all. The look of it is supposed to be soft.

Falling asleep like this ends up with hurting back now. The difference between of being a small kid and an adult. Sadly...
