>w< Oh hey! My name is Arkelle.
:heart: :heart: :heart: Thank you so much for visiting my page! :heart: :heart: :heart:

However, as my art isn't really for everyone, I would just like to explain some questions you may have or things that may concern some people beforehand.

- I enjoy using highly saturated or pastel colors and high contrast. I'm aware some people may consider it "retina burning" and unrealistic, and that is often times what i'm aiming for.
- My art style is in the realm of anime, and I like it that way. If I wanted to draw everything realistic I would draw realism and not anime.
- Generally speaking, I prefer to draw humans rather androgynous. This seems to upset a lot of people. If you are one of those people then kindly read the bolded segment at the bottom of this page.
- I like to draw things of obscure, obscene, or socially atypical subject matter to broaden my own and hopefully other people's perspectives.
- Please understand that my art used to tell a story, often from a specific person's point of view. What I write or draw in the context of fiction is not meant to reflect me or my personal opinions.
- I prefer to tell stories in a blunt, unguarded, highly emotional, and often a very graphic way, so my art may be a bit intense for you, which is understandable.
- I typically draw things pertaining to my own original stories and characters. I do not do fanart very often and I have no intention of changing that.
- I typically like to focus on characters whom (compared to modern day real life) would be a minority; those who may not look, act, think, or experience things in the same way as most people do currently in real life.
- I do not draw to be the best, to be the most popular, or the most original. I draw to learn, to experiment, to broaden my perspectives, to tell a story, to show beauty in things people might consider grotesque, and because art is the one thing in life I can honestly say I love.


If you do not like my art or the subject matter that it may pertain to, I completely understand. It isn't for everyone and I respect your opinion, but thank you very much for your time!
T///u///T And thank you to everyone who does honestly enjoy my art and stories and thank you so much for all the lovely kind words of praise and encouragement you all give to me.


:iconkikibow1plz::iconkikibow2plz::iconkikibow3plz::iconkikibow4plz::iconkikibow5plz::iconkikibow6plz:

I don't want to have to explain this anymore, so read this:
I love androgyny, and prefer to draw people that way. I like the idea of people being PEOPLE and not so severely separated by the roles or stereotypes in which we place upon gender. If you haven't noticed, I draw everyone "pretty" not just boys.
Saying that "boys aren't that pretty" is stupid when it comes to anime because if you haven't noticed, real girls do not look like anime girls either. Its not a realistic art style, and I think people have the right to interpret things in whatever way they want.
I personally prefer a more ambiguous interpretation of gender. To me, gender is just a thing. It doesn't define people exclusively, and honestly the way most people interpret it is just silly. Girls can be tough, boys can be weak. Girls can be "ugly" and boys can be "pretty". And if you think someone is less of a person (or that it somehow makes them not part of their own gender) for that then you are an idiot. If that offends you, leave. I'm not interested in hearing your stereotypical definitions of gender, and how men need to be buff and strong and women need to be in the kitchen. If that is what you think, again, you are an idiot.

May - Flourish by BlueRoseArkelle
May - Flourish
;//A//; Sorry i'm a little late with this one. I did mean to post it in June as I'm posting the previous month's series drawing in the month following, but i'm a few days late on this one and its July now OTL

My OC, Minerva. She is a young woman.

Ugggghhhh this drawing gave me so much trouble. Well, not so much the drawing or the coloring itself as that went great, it was the scanning that gave me so much trouble. For some reason my scanner just would not interpret the colors of this drawing correctly and kept washing them all out. I tried scanning it a dozen times and tried fiddling with the settings as much as I could and none of it helped. I don't know why but its like my new scanner can't keep the vibrancy of pink for some reason. In the scan, all of the bright pink areas were super washed out and nothing like the original drawing. If you want to see what I mean, here is a picture of the two side by side. The one on the left is a still from the coloring video and the colors are very true to life. On the right is what my scanner did to it and it's so washed out and looks nothing like it does in real life.
LOOK AT THIS NONSENSE by BlueRoseArkelle
So in the end I was forced to edit the colors extremely to get them to look like they do in the IRL version. It took forever, but luckily I was able to get them to look pretty close, so i'm happy about that anyways c:
Unfortunately a lot of the brown colors in her hair were kind of lost in the process and now it definitely looks mostly pink, but that's alright I guess. At least it looks more like the actual drawing then whatever that abomination of a scan does OTL

T//u//T Anyways, so yeah, standard transition time! For those of you who may not know, i'm doing a monthly drawing series of my OCs with flower themes. If you want to know the symbolism and story behind this drawing then feel free to read on, but if not that is fine but before you go, thank you so much for your favorite, comments and just for looking! I really really appreciate it!~ <3


//Start convoluted story/symbolism blah

 For the month of May there was really no other choice for me besides Minerva as she, more than any of my other characters, has the biggest connection with flowers, and (in the USA) May is unquestionably known as the month of flowers. There is a saying here that "April showers brings May flowers" meaning that in April it tends to rain a lot and because of that there is an abundance of flowers and greenery when it finally stops raining in May. May is also a month that many people tend to be quite fond of whether it be for its mellow spring temperature, its abundance of flora, or because it usually the last month of school before summer break. Whatever the reason, May is a very widely appreciated month here. In addition, because flowers are generally associated with that of women, and nature itself often is described as being a female entity, it carries the most strongly feminine aura of all of the months.
Minerva was always the character I wanted to draw for the month of May for that reason. I know that i've explained what little of her character there was before, but for those of who who don't know or don't remember i'll reiterate it a bit.

 Minerva is one of the characters that I imagined in my literal dreams, as in, while I was asleep. Unlike some of my dreams and dream characters, I did not remember much or her at all as the first time I technically dreamed her  another character was the focus of the dream. Then strangely enough, I had a dream abot the same girl again, only this time she was the focus, but it was all still rather vague. There was only two things that I remembered from that dream; what she looked like and what she was doing. The image of a young woman with ridiculously long pigtail braids wearing an old-fashioned dress spinning and dancing in a similar fashion to that of a slower Flamenco. For whatever reason, as she danced flowers would shower from and bloom beneath her dress, restoring even the most desolate of land into a beautifully flourished field of flowers. Why or how she could do that was a mystery to me at the time, but nevertheless the image stuck with me so strongly even after waking up. Her character and story has evolved more since then with me having had even more continuing dreams of these two characters, but nevertheless that image of Minerva spinning and dancing as flowers fell to the ground beneath her dress is the imagine I always immediately replay in my head when thinking of Minerva and she still maintains just as much captivating mystery to me now as she did then. 

  So yes. I've actually drawn a similar picture of her with that iconic imagine in mind before which Is called "Recrudescence" so if you've seen that drawing then this one will probably be pretty familiar to you. When choosing which flowers I wanted to draw for this month with Minerva I actually intentionally chose some of the same ones as that drawing for a little bit of an easter egg xD! Pansies and Mallow are two flowers that I used in that drawing that I also included here. In addition to those I've also included some different flowers which are Heather, Dandelion, and Briar Rose. xD I don't really know how to expain this without sounding kind of silly, but I wanted to choose flowers that I felt were very..."American"...? xD Ahaha that sounds dumb, I know, but I wanted most of the flowers to remind me of ones that I would see in springtime in the US. Flowers that are quite common here or ones that are commonly known. Nothing that felt too tropical or foreign in look to that of common US flowers if that makes sense. Mallow and Heather are ones that are a little suspect in that regard, but I included them of other reasons. In Floriography, darker varieties of Heather mean and unobtainable or distant beauty, or a love of something/someone that is unlikely, one that is captivating and mysterious in nature, so that one was chosen mainly for its meaning in relation to Minerva. Somewhat similar to Heather, Mallow is often synonymous with strong ardent love. Dandelions, commonly known as being a weed more than a flower, carry a similar less pure meaning. They are known as the flower of "impure thoughts" or more accurately used in the act of flirtation and sexual advance. Given as a gift they essentially symbolize a person trying to take advantage of and seduce another, less intelligent and very naive person, with a gift of a "flower" the other person being too naive to realize that a Dandelion is a weed and carries with it no pure intention. xD The reason why I included that one in this drawing is purely because of the sexual interpretation a person could have for Minerva or the drawing itself seeing her lift up her skirt. Its of course not meant to be sexual in any way, but of course people may see it that way (what with flowers being compared to female genitalia and all) so I thought i'd be a little sneaky sneak and add that one it there haha xD

 Anyway, Pansy is representative of thoughts, usually of a complex nature. They often reflect someone who is lost in their own mind and perplexed by something profound or extraordinary. Briar Rose, or Sweetbrier i've included for a bit of a different reason albeit kind of a silly one. xD "Briar Rose" is most well known for being the name the Princess assumes to hide and protect her until her 16th birthday in the Grimm variant or the Disney movie varient, Sleeping Beauty. Its my favorite Disney movie and one of my favorite movies of all time. (xD Though yes, I do know the prior "actual" Basile story both are based off and how, you know, the prince [king] rapes her while she sleeps, she gives birth to twins and is only awoken because one of them sucks the splinter from her finger, the prince [king] comes back to find her awoken with children and after telling her what happened the whole, you know, RAPE THING is completely glanced over and they fall in love anyways?!) I'm sure i've mentioned this before but the reason that I like it is not so much the story (speaking of the Disney version anyways) as its very simple and yes, kind of boring, its that i've always had to sleep significantly longer than the average person and I have extremely vivid and often very terrifying dreams. Its something that has been a blessing and a curse to me for my whole life, on the one hand my dreams have greatly inspired my art and storytelling through the years, but on the other it has caused me much pain and agony and even when I am awake I always feel sleepy with ever the mixture of excitement and fear whenever I close my eyes in sleep. So the reason why I love Sleeping Beauty so much is that in a way, I can relate to a girl who's life is robbed by sleep, as mine is also. Anyways, because Minerva is a character that was from my dreams, I thought including the Briar Rose flower would be a fun little tie-in to her original creation in sleep. xD Hopefully that makes sense~

 c: So yeah, I still wanted to go with that iconic image of Minerva with the flowers under her dress, but do it a bit differently than the other picture. c: I also drew her hair down and out of her signature giant pigtails for this one as I felt it added to the flow and gave more of a softer feminine feel. I also decided to have a pink be the primary color focus in the drawing as because May is a very feminine month I wanted to choose softer colors people often associate with femininity. Of course, that was really hard to force myself to do because I haaaaaaaaaate the idea that colors are "gender specific" because that is the most ludicrous idiocy i've ever heard in my life. Buuuuut I let it slide just in this once case to better convey the feeling I wanted. D:< Just because I hate pink being used as a "girl color" and think defining colors as gender specific is idiotic it doesn't change the fact that people still either consciously or subconsciously interpret them that way whether they agree with it or not.

//End convoluted story/symbolism blah

TwT Anyways yeah~
;A; I'm pretty sad that this drawing had all the scanning issues because I really really like the irl picture. I do still like it now that i've fixed it but it still leaves me feeling a bit bittersweet because its just not quite the same. :c
I hope that you guys like it though! ;u;

^u^ And of course, i'll have the coloring process video up on my Youtube channel in a few days, so keep and eye out for that too! <3

Favorite Pokemon of Every Type Meme by BlueRoseArkelle
Favorite Pokemon of Every Type Meme
x3 Just a little something fun that i've been doodling as a stress relief for the last few days~ TAT Truth be told i'm juggling so many things at the moment I haven't had much time to draw much aside from doodles and my monthly series OTL. But I am still very much alive! I know this isn't much, but I had fun with it so I wanted to post it here anyways c:
xD Also this meme is suuuuper old at this point, but i've always wanted to do it haha~

*U* So yeah, my favorite Pokemon of each type! Some where a lot easier to decide on than others, especially when dual types are taken into consideration.
My drawings kind of covered up some of the types so i'll write them and the Pokemon's name in case you don't know or can't tell~
In order by row from top to bottom, left to right:

BUG - Scolipede, DARK - Sableye, DRAGON - Altaria
ELECTRIC - Galvantula, FAIRY - Klefki, FIGHTING - Mienshao
FIRE - Chandelure, FLYING - Gligar, GHOST - Banette
GRASS - Cacturne, GROUND - Steelix, ICE - Cloyster
NORMAL - Porygon-Z, POISON - Vileplume, PSYCHIC - Hoopa
ROCK - Lunatone, STEEL - Bronzong, WATER - Starmie

x3 Some of you probably already know that my all time favorite Pokemon is Banette and some of my other favorites from other drawings i've made, but there are probably a few surprises in there too. Its usually pretty hard for me to decide on just one favorite in any category because I'm just not a...well "favorite" type of person, and for some of these there were one or two other Pokemon that were reaaaaally close to getting chosen but I settled on these ones after much deliberation and thought. xD The hardest ones were Bug, Grass, Normal, and Fire since they aren't really my favorite types but I like a lot of Pokemon from them but it was harder to pick one that stood out the most as my favorite. Others like Ghost, Psychic, Flying and Dragon required zero thought because they are definitely my favorites in their types. But I think if I had to make a "second place" for each type it would be this-
Masquerain, Umbreon, Dragalge
Raikou, Dedenne, Hitmontop
Arcanine, Drifloon, Doublade
Serperior, Sandslash, Glalie
Furfrou, Drapion, Chimecho
Archeops, Metagross, Phione

x3 Anyways, yeah, that is about it! Just some fun little Pokemon doodles! I originally way going to color them more elaborately, but after drawing a lot of them in such animated poses I thought it would be more fitting to go with a simpler and more colorful cartoony coloring style. I rarely ever do coloring in such a simple way, but its fun to try new things and I'm starting to gain more of an appreciation for minimalism when it comes to coloring in my own art. xD Of course, I still love me some insane details and heavy contrast, but I need to remind myself that its perfectly okay for me to draw something silly and be content with not coloring it like a college art final all the time haha xDD

....xD Also after all these years I think I am finally able to draw Pokemon somewhat passably. Woo!

March - Coalesce by BlueRoseArkelle
March - Coalesce

;//A//; Oh man, first and foremost, I do deeply apologize that this was so delayed!!

My OC, Etzel. He is a young boy

 I did intend to post this in April (which i'll get to in a minute) but for those of you who don't know my computer broke and was out getting fixed for almost three weeks. I'm so so sooooo happy that is was fixable and that it didn't die completely as well... I wouldn't even begin to know what to do if it was legitimately unusable. T~T Not to mention the computer itself, but just the vital art/video programs I have on it alone would be waaaay more than I could afford right now. So yeah, even though it caused an annoying delay with my art and plans, i'm still so so relieved that it could be fixed!
But anyways, even before my computer broke, I did actually make the decision to post the previous months series drawing in the next following month. The reason being is that its easier for me to develop a clearer idea for each month when i've already experienced it and can reflect on it, you know? I mean, I already have the specific characters I want to draw in each month picked out and a vague theme or concept but it really helps to refine and solidify those base ideas when I can reflect on the month that they are intended for as it actually happens. TwT Hopefully that makes sense. So anyways, April's monthly series drawing will be posted this month as well, this one just got delayed which is why i'm posting it now. April's is mostly done I just need to finish the coloring for it, so i'm thinking the middle of the month like the 15th-ish it will be ready. And then May's will be posted in June and so on and so forth. That will be plan for all of the upcoming months aside from December which I do intend to post in in the same month. xD Just because I don't want to post it in January of 2016, you know? Haha~

;__; So yeah, I'm so sorry again for the delay, but thank you guys for being so patient and understanding and i'm truly deeply sorry for seeming so flaky all the time. I really don't try to be that way, honest. OTL

 Annnnyyyywaaaaaay, xD I feel like I have a laaaaaaat to say about this drawing's story/symbolism blah in particular BECAUSE I SERIOUSLY NEVER TALK ABOUT ETZEL EVER I MEAN REALLY *cough* so i'll save most of the rambling for that, but I did want to mention that goshhhhh it took me forever to really pinpoint exactly what I wanted color wise for this particular drawing. Though it surprises a lot of people to hear it, I usually only have a mental concept of the coloring that I do in my drawings prior to actually coloring them. I rarely ever if ever physically "plan" out exactly how i'm going to color. A lot of traditional artist seem to take the route of either making tiny thumbnail sketches of their drawings and do some quick test colors on those, or scan their lineart/sketches into the computer and make quick digital mockups. Previously I really never did either. I mean, I of course would test out blending a few colors I wanted to use on a scrap piece of paper to see how they would look, but aside from that I pretty much just..well yolo it xD //shot
But for this particular drawing I was just too conflicted on exactly the route that I wanted to take in regards to coloring so I opted to do the digital mock-up method to test out some ideas and make a more solid plan before I started coloring it traditionally. Part of me wanted to color it really bright and saturated like I usually do, opting for brighter oranges and yellows and the sky/hair transition being a bright blue rather than a deep teal. I also thought about adding more colors, like the bright neon pink of Etzel's irises for example. But in thinking about it further my real vision for it was more of a...softer, highly selective color palette, with a strangely ethereal yet primarily earthy sort of vibe, if that makes sense. xD I don't know how quite to explain it, since these sort of earthy and less extremely saturated color schemes are something I rarely do. I mean, even though I wanted the yellow to appear as bright highlights, it is still entirely fair to say that compared to the ultra extreme contrast that I usually do, this is rather subdued by comparison. Which is what I was going for. Its hard to explain the exact feeling I wanted to capture....but...I guess its kind of like simultaneously blending everything in the picture together to create a an overall feeling of unison while also having a very distinct and compelling center focus. xD Haha, yeah that still sounds silly. Hopefully you get what I mean though.  ^u^ I am very surprised that I am really quite fond of this drawing though. Rarely ever would I say that I genuinely "love" or even "really like" my drawings when I finish them. But this one I do very much like...and I hope you guys do too! <3


T//u//T Anyways, so yeah, standard transition time! For those of you who may not know, i'm doing a monthly drawing series of my OCs with flower themes. If you want to know the symbolism and story behind this drawing then feel free to read on, but if not that is fine but before you go, thank you so much for your favorite, comments and just for looking! I really really appreciate it!~ <3

  So for the month of March I chose Etzel to be the focus. I always knew that I wanted him for either March or April, but after settling on Calliope for February I decided on March for Etzel so their little love trio could be all together in a row xD //shot
But anyway, the reason why I wanted Etzel to be one of these two months originally is because I often associate dramatic weather change with them. Bright sun and heavy rain; March and April can definitely be rather bizarre, spontaneous and unpredictable months...at least in the US of course haha xD. But really, March was the better choice for Etzel because I when I think of the two months together, March I see as being the one with more sun and April with more rain. Both have this dramatic weather change but the well known saying "April showers bring May flowers" makes me associate rain more strongly with April than that of March. Etzel is definitely a character whom if I had to choose one over the other I would say he is definitely more "sunny" than "rainy", but that is not to say that other side of him does not exist. Etzel is very much a person who upon first impression you could very easily assume to be nothing but a fun-loving little ball of happiness, rainbows, and sunshine. Super bubbly, innocent, lighthearted and overly affectionate (albeit on the..err.. overly forward side of that one xD), perhaps a bit overzealous at times but rarely ever to a rude or annoying extent. However, this side of him was not always there. At a point in his life, Etzel made a decision to change himself and learned to purposefully project a happy and likable personality. Over time, it took over his previous attitude completely and became his natural way of existing to the point that most people would assume he has been that way his whole life. Only a select few people know the difficult struggle it was to change himself...to learn to focus on the positive side of life, to trust, and to love with all of his heart.

  I think i've mentioned it briefly before, but it has been a while and its a bit hard to explain and probably to understand, but bare with me and i'll try to explain a bit better the circumstances that lead to that change as its what is primarily referenced in this drawing. Some of this is just reiterating, but is relevant backstory that is needed for everything else to make sense. Firstly its important to note that in regards to the order of their Trio meeting, Etzel and Calliope met first, then quite a while later Etzel met Shu and then not long after Shu was introduced to Calliope. There is quite a bit of time and backstory between Etzel and Calliope that pre-dates Shu; the nature of Etzel's personality change being one of them. Originally Etzel and Calliope were not natives of the same area, or not from the same "settlement" you could say. (I have my own terms that the Unitrios use for a lot of these things, but I just try to explain them as "normally" as I can so things make sense xD.) The Unitrios, Etzel and Calliope's species, don't all live in one area. Quite the opposite actually. They form small groups (usually no more than 9 complete Trios [27 individuals] and most typically half of that number incomplete Trios [13-14 individuals] with a very rare maximum of equal that number of incomplete Trios [27 individuals]) usually in areas that are considered uninhabitable by that of "humans" to protect themselves from being preyed upon by them. I explained why this is in my February monthly series drawing if you want to know more about that specifically. Anyway, even if they are well hidden from those who would seek to harm them they still do not naturally favor large communities as they are not an overly sociable species (among other things) like we IRL humans are, but that is also a story for a different day.

  Anyway, In Unitrios lore there are stories telling of a infamously forbidden and absolutely exiled Unitrios settlement. While some see it as nothing more than a spooky tale of warning, others know all too well that this place did and still does exist. The reason it lives in infamy…there is a long held legend and rumor about the true nature of the Unitrios that live there. That they have been born to very different and forbidden types of energies.  From the energies…of other living creatures. Their flesh, blood and bones …and other things. To reiterate, the way that Unitrios are born is by creating a synergy of three specific compatible energies and refining said power inside that of gemstones which are matured and then combined with the addition of the "parent's" chosen energy in a special process which creates their newborn. In normal circumstances they are born to a very specific type of natural energy in which they can both consume and exude so that there is a natural equilibrium with their environment. However,  their bodies are essentially pure energy encased in a gemstone exterior. They don't feel like stone per-say, but they certainly do not have the same internal workings as humans and so they do not look or feel quite so "fleshy" either. While on the outside they don't look much different on the inside when they are alive they do not have blood, bones, muscles or anything that humans posses. Herein lies the reason why birthing Unitrios to such energies is widely considered forbidden. Unitrios do not naturally bleed nor do they posses bones, fur, etc. They can consume the energies lying within these things but cannot exude them. This defies the natural balance their species has held with their environments since the begin of their creation, and so it was ultimately forbidden to use any energy that could not be replenished in the furthering of their species even should it seem opportune.

  Etzel...is from that very place.

  But…his energy however is not exactly what you would think. Its not that of blood or bone...but well...something that everyone has deep inside but that can be very hard to see. He has an energy unlike that of any other…one that to make and perfect had a very heavy cost. That entire story i'll save for another day, but lets just say that the true nature of exactly what went into him being born he would not know for a very long time. Exactly what his energy even was and how it could be harnessed was also kept from him, in part because it was the first time it had ever been successful...but for other reasons as well. Even not knowing exactly what his energy was or how to use it, Etzel was miraculously still able to live normally and seemed to suffer next to no consequences...well, all except for one very obvious one which he would not learn until much later. For many years after his birth he was kept away from others of his species by two of his three “parents”. The whole reason I will not say now, but lets just say that it was not done with pure and good intention. He was like…an experiment. A metaphorical mouse on a wheel. However, even amongst the society of the "forbidden" Unitrios, it was still considered especially heinous and intolerable to create offspring to use for your own benefit which is at least in part why he was held away in secret. Again, without giving away too much, lets just say that these two had a very specific vision for that of Etzel which he himself wanted no part of. It’s a long story and I don’t want to get into all of it right now, but eventually he was finally able to escape. However, it was only then that he was made aware that he had a severe flaw…in the eyes of other people he could appear as anything. Its a little hard to explain but the physical form that he appeared as was different to every person that saw him. Sometimes a person could see him the same way for a while without it changing, or it could change with each blink of their eyes. To some people he looked like a child, others an adult, sometimes as people they knew, sometimes a blurry figure or sometimes not even of his own species. Though he didn't know it yet, typically the forms he took were most influenced by his own emotions. The more extreme and negative the emotions, the more extreme and terrifying other people saw him as. However, Etzel never saw himself differently. Up until that point he never knew about it at all. His "parents" were the only people he was around and they never had the reactions that these new people had to him. They saw him as he saw himself. When he ran away from his homeland, everyone he came across met him with similar faces of terror, confusion or disdain be them his own species or not. Looking at his reflection he always saw the same thing and he wondered why nobody else could see it. Everyone he met acted as if they saw a monster or if they didn't, the next time he saw them again they acted like they didn't know who he was...which was true in their eyes. Or even worse still, a human seeing him as his own rare and highly coveted species and trying to kill, enslave, or violate him. From these terrible experiences happening over and over again with each new person he met he grew angrier and angrier with them all until he had nothing but pure hate and distrust for everyone. On top of that he knew next to nothing about himself or the world around him as it was all kept away from him since he was born. He barely even knew what a Trio was and that says a lot considering it is the crux of his whole species. During his time alone on his own, he did find however that he had an unusual connection to that of spiders. They seemed to be the only creatures that were not startled by him and actually tended to flock to him. They have a high level of understanding to one another, somewhat like telepathy. They seemed to think he was one of them…which wasn’t isn’t exactly wrong xD
Amongst other things, they became his “friends” and gave him a great appreciation for that of nature at least… if not for the people living in it.

  He spent quite a lot of time all by himself (well, mostly) until he met one of the members of his own Trio for the first time; Calliope. Unlike all the other people who he had come across on his journey, Calliope was not like the others. Even not fully understanding what a Trio was he knew instantly just as all Unitrios do when they’ve met them for the first time. But she was not like all the others in more ways than one. Up to that point she was the only other person (spiders not included) aside from his "parents" that could see him as he truly was all the time. It would be difficult, extremely long winded, and pretty spoilery to explain everything that happened that led up to it so I’ll save it for a different day, but long story short; through that one true connection, though it was not easy, over time it led Etzel to begin learning to trust people more and to not immediately hate them for things neither could at the time control. Calliope met his hate and distrust with compassion and patience and though it was not without strife she was able to show him that the person whom he was projecting was not the real him. She was the only one who he trusted and allowed to see that under all that projected hate and distance there was laughter, curiosity, innocence, passion, intelligence, mercy, love, and strong unbreakable devotion. She said that the way other people saw him was a product of his environment and circumstance and that if he wanted people to see him a certain way he had to become how he wanted to be seen. To show people what she can see. She noticed that the way he appeared to other people was highly influenced by that of his emotions and that when he was in control of them and in control of himself the image they would see became less intimidating and eventually much clearer. Though neither of them fully understood why at the time and it would not be truly know until much later, but once his personality had truly bloomed and became what it is today the foggy misguided images people saw of Etzel faded away and were finally able to see him for his true self; what Calliope had always seen.  Eventually the Etzel people had known before was all but gone completely both in appearances and in personality and the always excitable, passionate and bubbly real Etzel was allowed to shine like the bright sun parting through dark rainclouds.

  …xD Haha, anyways yeah, wow that’s a big wall o’ backstory if I’ve ever seen one….and that is the severely edited version mind you. There was a lot more elaboration and more story I wanted to say, buuuut I think this is more than good enough for now. I really have said so little about Etzel in the past, so at least this is a bit more about him for you.

  So yes, that should explain what I was going for with the drawing and what I meant about sun and rain. Etzel is a person who…well, consistently throughout life is given the short end of the straw. There are so many pains and heartaches that he is forced to endure throughout his life (both in past, present and future tense….) and yet even through all of it he continues to smile. He learned to focus on the positive side of life, to hold on to what you love and what light you have because no matter how small it is it can always lead you through the darkness. To most people who meet him for the first time, they would never know the horrors that he’s had to face because his eyes are always so bright and innocent and carries such a happy disposition. He’s just like a Sunflower; no matter where they are or what is behind them they always will face the sun. I always think of Sunflowers when I think of Etzel, so I just had to make them the main focus. Sunflowers are also universal symbols of happiness, positivity, pure thoughts, loyalty, longevity, and faith; all things that describe Etzel quite well. The other flower in this drawing is Daisy whiiiiich I’ll admit that I mainly included also because it reminds me a lot of Etzel. xD I don’t know, these are just the two flowers that come to mind when I think of Etzel. Luckily they are very similar in meaning and both represent Etzel very well especially with the theme and coloring I was going for. xD To be honest….March is actually one of my last favorite moths of the year. Mainly because where I live, in the valleys of Southern California, there are really only two seasons; summer and sort of winter. Well, what I mean by that is that seasons aren’t as obviously visual here as many trees do not shed their leaves in in the Fall and it does not snow…ever. Really its just the temperature that changes a lot. There is a saying in California that explains it well; “if you don’t like the weather wait 15 minutes and it will change”. For some transitional months it ping-pongs between being skin-meltingly hot or the perfect temperature. March is when that back and forth game usually starts. It doesn’t get unbareably hot until around late May and early June but I always dread March because that is when I know the nice and cool, less wishy-washy months are behind me and every day after its just going to get hotter and nastier ( I loooooooathe the heat if that wasn’t obvious) OTL. So yeah, March is definitely not my favorite month of the year, but it isn’t my least favorite either. xD Probably like third least favorite haha~ ^u^But I’m glad that I could draw one of my favorite characters of mine for this month to counter that…and I’m glad that the drawing itself turned out better than I expected too! ;__; I’m just sorry it got so delayed. OTL

  //End EXTREMELY convoluted story/symbolism blah

TwT Hehe,  anyways so yeah okay I’m going to stop rambling now. HOT DAAAAAAYM LOOK AT THAT SEXY ASS TEXTWALL HNNNNGG

But I do hope that you like the drawing and I hope for those of you who care its nice to know a little more about Etzel’s backstory finally haha~ ;A; There is honestly soooooooo much more I wish I could tell you guys about him more in future tense because he has some of my favorite but most heart wrenching arcs in the story but ack, spoilers. Eventually though!



*U* ILU GUYS <3

>W< EEEEE Hi guys!!~ Ahh, it seems like so long since I last did a happy update journal and....xD well it has been. //shot
TvT I've been meaning to make an update journal for a little while now, but I figured it would be best to do one around the beginning of the new year. *U* Speaking of the new year, YAAAY Happy 2015 everyone!! I hope you guys are as happy as I am to see 2014 go away. It certainly holds a spot for one of the worst years in my life OTL
^U^ I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season though! @ U @ Ohhh and i'd love to know what you guys got for Christmas this year, if you celebrate it that is~ *//U//* My best childhood friend came to visit for the holidays as he is in the Navy, and ASDFGHJKL HE GOT ME A NEW WII U!! @//A//@ Like, a brand new one! With special controllers too! And a bunch of games like Super Mario 3D World, Hyrule Warriors, Pikmin 3, and Windwaker HD!! @ A @ AHHH seriously he is way too nice, I can't believe that he got me all that!! I haven't had a ton of time to really play everything yet as i've been drawing and working on art stuff like crazy since Christmas, but asdfgh what I have played so far I love!! >W< I can't wait to play The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess sometime too as I've never gotten the chance to play it before. xD And now I can play Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of The New World and Rune Factory Frontier again after all these years. My original Wii broke like, 6 months after I got it years ago and I had never gotten a new one. ^//W//^ So yeah, i'm so super happy to have my lovely new Wii U to play not only newer games but also ones that i've missed or missed out on. >W< Best present ever!!~ <333
@ V @ Do let me know what you guys got as presents in the comments below!


TuT Haha, anyways, onto the actual updates. Its been a while and you guys know that I write textbooks so it'll be... kind of long. But I would very much appreciate reading it if you have the time <3

START UPDATE BLAH
I'm sure most of you guys already know why I was gone for most of last year so I don't think I need to explain it again in detail, but I did just want to give a little bit of a explanation for those of you who might be new followers or who were out of the loop, and because Its very important to me to be honest with all of the lovely friends i've made and keep them informed when I do have big thing happen in my life that may subsequently effect them. If you already know about this, feel free to skip this part.
Anyway after I graduated High School in 2011 I almost immediately went to College for art, specifically for Video Game Art and Design. Idealistically, I loved the concept of being able to create video game sand art for them someday, which has always been a huge dream of mine. Unfortunately I was heavily pressured into going to college before I felt that I was ready and while I do greatly value the time I spent pursuing that and the knowledge I gained from it, if I had to make the same choice over again I would 100% not do it the same way. To be honest, rarely do I regret or resent things that happen in my life but going to college at that time is the one thing that I regret and resent my family for most in my life thus far. In 2013, two years of college later, I came to the realization that doing art for others of things that didn't inspire me was heavily draining my creativity and my desire to draw at all. When I realized that, despite the fact that I was "giving up" those two years I had invested, I knew that that I had to stop going to college for art lest I drain myself of my one true passion forever. To this day, I absolutely without a doubt believe that was the best decision even if others may not agree. Despite my love for video games and the prospect of being able to work on them as a career, I had to be honest with myself with the fact that drawing what other people want doesn't interest me in the slightest and despite being an amazing career it would end up bringing me no joy. In 2014, I felt relieved that I had come to that realization, however after the fact I also realized that I had no other direction in my life and I felt very lost. In addition to that, my creativity had been so drained from the years prior in college that for the first time in my life since discovering my love of art I didn't have the motivation to draw anymore. Drawing anything was such a struggle and often when I did force myself draw  I felt overwhelmed with the feelings of sadness and shame thinking of my "failure" in becoming a professional artist. Even though I knew I would be disappointing a lot of my lovely friends around the internet, I had to make the conscious decision to take time away from the art world to regain my focus and recharge myself creatively. In most of 2014 I was away for this reason. There was  definitely some huge lows in the last year for me, but as time progressed I began to feel a lot better and started to get my creativity back in part due to focusing on different creative outlets aside from drawing. In these last few months i've began to feel a million percent better and I'm starting to feel like my old self again. I still am not sure where my life will take me in the more distant future, but in this new year I've been given the rare opportunity to refocus myself to what I truly love and pursue my art as I see fit; on my own terms. Over the years i've built such a wonderful community and met so many amazing people whom i've had the honor of inspiring and influencing through my art and it hurt me tremendously to abandon you all for that time.

Again, i'm sure some of you already know about my plans to exclusively focus on my art this year, but since its finally 2015 now I want to explain it even better.
Some might call you "fans", but to me, all of you who admire me and my art, who encourage me, who genuinely love what I create, who continue to give me time and attention even when I don't know the right words to say thank you - you all aren't just "fans", you are all my friends. I've built this amazing community of friends on integrity and passion; on the things that I love and that I feel are important to share. Nothing makes me happier in the world then drawing things that I love and that inspire me, and I genuinely feel that even if its only in a small way, i've been able to spread my love and happiness to others and make their lives even the tiniest bit better. Sure, some of the things that I draw can seem gruesome and made with ill-intent upon casual glance, but underneath it all there is always a moral, a lesson to be learned, a story to be told, a perspective to be seen, or at the very core a person with looks or feelings we can relate to; whom we can see on a human level. I know it may seem pretentious to put such deep meanings on silly anime drawings, but know what everything I draw is with intention, even if it may not seem like it at first glance. A lot of people see my sincerity, and the amount of people who message me to tell me how much they love my art and how i've made them happier, included, or inspired by my aesthetic or message is countless. Its the most amazing and humbling feeling in the world, and to all of you i'm so incredibly grateful. Art is a truly amazing and powerful thing, it has the ability to inspire, influence, and motivate people like nothing else. I say it all the time, but there is truly no other power in the world that is stronger than the ability to inspire and influence people to do something of their own choice. Even if its only on a very small and insignificant scale in the scheme of things, I could use that power to spread bitterness and hate like so many people do, but there is enough of that in the world and I would rather spread acceptance, understanding, mercy, and happiness; the things the world truly needs.

I know i'm not the best or most popular artist ever and realistically it may be foolish to think that I can build a career on just my own art alone. But even so, over this last year i've truly realized what that you all mean to me and how happy I truly am when I'm drawing, writing stories and characters, making videos, livestreaming, and helping other artists in any way I can. When I made a Devianart and Youtube account I never EVER imagined how many people would come to love my art and characters. Just how many people care about anything I do or say. But every day, even while I was away, more and more people have become part of my once small group of friends, and I want to show how incredibly grateful I am to all you for that.
Like I've said before, I can't say how realistic of an option it will be in my life forever. I don't know if I will be able to keep making art and Youtube videos for you all forever, but I realize that I have a wonderful community that continues to grow each day and even if it may be unrealistic or foolish, I want to try my best to nurture that and see how it grows. Its a long-off dream right now, but even the smallest bit of hope that maybe in the future i'll be able to make a career of my own art on my own terms is just something that I don't want t miss the opportunity for. So, in 2015 I'm going to really be focusing my art, trying my best to grow my community and make even better art and videos for you all! :heart:

^u^ Lately i've been livestreaming again, this time on Youtube so that it is more easily assessable to the majority of people. In the streams I've been working on lots of chibi drawings of my characters for the purpose of having proper references. I've mentioned it before, but i'm working on making a proper website for my characters so that there is a neat, formal and easily accessible way for you all to see and read a bit about all of my characters. Or course, most of what will be there are things that i've said about them previously/ more general information as to prevent a plethora of spoilers (or leeching thieves from copying their stories) for the future, but you know. For the newer watchers or less-familiar people it will be a place where you can read a bit about them a bit if you are curious. A lot of people ask me about my characters and their stories etc. and a lot of what they ask are things i've already explained before. Unfortunately i've never really had a proper place to write down all of that sort of stuff and previously I've just explained things in the descriptions of my art or in livestreams which I'm aware probably makes it really hard for people to follow. ^u^ So yeah, it will be like a mini Arkelle's characters Wiki xD I will still of course write stuff in the descriptions of my art as I reveal more things about their characters, but I will also update the newly revealed information on the website so even if you missed it on a drawing you'll still know! Because of the site, and having a lack of proper references for my characters (OTL) i'd like to draw lots of references (chibi and normal) for my OCs over this year, so i'm sure that there will be a lot of livestreams/videos because of that xD
^U^ I'm also going to be doing a monthly series of drawings for the first time this year! I'm sure you guys all know how much I love drawing my OCs with flowers, so I've decided to do a traditional media symbolic drawing using floriography each month focusing on a different character of mine. >//w//< For those of you who read this journal, you'll be the first to know that this month is going to be of my OC, Shu!~ :heart:
TuT There are other things i'm thinking of doing, but i'm still working them out. I'm getting realllllllllly close to 10k subscribers on Youtube now and AHHHH I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO!?!? @ A @ I'd like to do something special for the milestone, but ack, i'm not sure what I want to do at all and i've been thinking about it forever! OTL

Also on a side note, for those of you who may not know, aside from drawing there is another creative outlet that i've become head over heels in love with over the last two years, and that is asian ball-jointed dolls. I've talked about them in the past and even shared a few pictures of them here, but i've since removed them as i'd like my Deviantart to focus soley on my drawings. ^u^ I do have a Flickr account now though, so if you also collect BJDs or would ever like to see mine I post pictures of them there. I'm really not a good photographer, but its been fun to learn and practice, and just to share more things in my life that are creative and I love! ^u^ I also make miniature flower crowns in doll scale that i'm planning to start selling this year, as well as trying out doing faceups commissions on BJDs and Azone dolls for other people as its something I really enjoy doing and would like to become even better at it~ I know a few people have asked me about that here, so just letting you know in case you've ever wanted me to custom paint a doll for you before, or you might like that in the future~ I still have no intention of doing drawing commission anytime in the future, but since faceups I have less emotional investment into than drawing they aren't nearly as taxing to my creativity to do for other people. Anyway, here's that linku desu xD : www.flickr.com/photos/bluerose…
END UPDATE BLAH


^W^ So yeah, anyways, i'm feeling sooooo much better and happier these days. I'm really sorry again that I had to take so much time away from you all, but I really did need the break and thank you all so very much for sticking with me during that time and being so understanding. I'm doing lots of creative stuff again these days and I couldn't be happier! ^//w//^ I'm so happy to be drawing and posting again for you all, and I hope that I can create lots of art and videos in this year that you will all enjoy! :heart:

...xD Oh, and also just wanted to mention that I post WIPS and doodles on my Twitter all the time as well as updates and livestream notices, so...ack I don't really want to sound like some king of salesman but if want to know all that stuff, Twitter is a great place to keep in touch with me!
twitter.com/BlueRoseArkelle
e w e And make sure to tweet me #praisethemaize or anything corn related for no reason at all whenever you want. xD I'll greatly appreciate it haha <3333


Thank you all to much for reading all this if you did and really, thank you for being the best friends a person could have. ;//u//;
NOW COME HERE AND LET ME LOVE YOU. YES YOU. ALL OF YOU.

Hey! I just wanted to stop by and say wow your art has grown so much! I watched you a few years back on dA using another account (this is a newer one hehe). Your art and perseverance has been such an inspiration.

I drew REM for you because I've loved him since day 1! Thanks so much for being you and keep doing what you're doing, because you've reached and touched a lot of hearts. I look forward to watching you and your pretty art for a long while yet. :heart: :hug:

Ok so, uh...
Just wanna say I have been in love with your colouring and style ever since I first saw your YouTube channel.
I am a proud stalker :3
And I am really jealous of how well you can mix the colours together the way you do in your art.
And I wish I could afford to get one of those BJDs like yours >~<
And as soon as I saw your picture of all the HS trolls, I nearly passed out from holding my breath. I love homestuck.
Also, thank you for being an awesome person, and being brave enough to draw nipples.
You are a truly inspirational being ^v^ (& I'm sorry I'm sounding so creepy o~o )

Omg i remember  two years ago when i discovered you on youtube and fell in love with your art, the first video of yours i watched was "sleight stride coloring finale" and it inspired me to buy prismacolor pencils! I just want to thank you for sharing your talent with us and being so kind and funny Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (a random deer appears)
Anywayyy i'm probably gonna go watch all your old videos right now, love you! :) Stay awesome

You're a wonderful artist, I really love your world. Your pictures look so unique, mysterious and beautiful: your use of colors never fails to make each of your pieces stunning.
Your pictures look are filled with feelings and emotions, which I truly love and admire. :heart:

;//A//; Oh my goshhhhh I can't believe that I didn't see or respond to this sooner! Really, I apologize!
But even if its forever late I just have to say thank you so much for your kind words! T//w//T I'm really happy and honored that you enjoy my art and stories and are able to see the thought, emotion, love that I put into it. I mean, I'm incredibly grateful whenever I get comments saying that my art is pretty, but more than anything I greatly appreciate comments like yours who genuinely admire my art as the multi-faceted pieces of love that I intend for them to be.

>//w//< Anyway, thank you so much again for your kind words, I really really appreciate them and i'm sorry I didn't notice them earlier! ;A;
