YOU are the animator, the one who gave the characters life, the one who designed the lay of their world, the one who knew the story and found a way to share it through your art.  They are your characters, your story, your world.  And after all the time and creative effort, including the sacrifices to find the resources of materials and time, they now exist and move and breathe. And it is time to share them with others. But protect THEIR value first.
