I am addicted to beautiful and complex words
xD Lol, the "definitions of words" thing is supposed to be only for artsu that involves my personal project Sleight, but with my addiction to complex words in titles I suppose it is a good idea to define them so I don't seem so cryptic xD as if that is even possible OTL
BEFORE I SAY ANYTHING ELSE. xD Colored with two colored pencils, four pastels, and white paint. xD I wanted to challenge myself to make art using only 10 materials including the pencil, inking pen and paper. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED AND WON. eve ....TvT Uhm, so two reasons for this. One, I just wanted to test out my lovely new Turquoise Copic Multiliner, and two, I've been feeling like indulging in some romantic artsu of my OCs lately. ;w; I mentioned it before but....I don't know, I often talk about my OCs romances but rarely do I ever post things that are legitimately romantic and I don't mean sexual because I do that all the time OTL. Lately, I've just been much more interested in focusing a bit more on my OCs who are romantically involved. xD No idea why. //slapped
>//w//< Err, so anyways my OCs Shu (right) and Calliope (left). I guess I don't really need to say much about them except LOLI/SHOTA Q//v//Q ..wait that wasn't it. //slapped TvT Uhm, but yeah.... As I've mentioned before, Calliope, Shu, and Etzel are a trio as in YES EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE THINKING. *cough* But that being said, it doesn't mean that they are with each other as a trio all the time or that every instance of romance is triangular - so to speak. Each one must devote time to each other individually, as well as both. ...xD I'll put the canon story explanation below if you want a better understanding.
;//v//; Uh, but yeah....I just wanted to draw something very soft and romantic~ Interestingly enough, Shu develops romantic feeling for Calliope much easier than he does for Etzel. Being that Shu is pansexual he doesn't care about gender in regards to romance, but some certain things Reysol said to him about "morality" and what is "right" causes him to question his beliefs and his affection for Etzel moreso than for Calliope.
The way it is elaborated canonly: When each member is so closely connected to their other two, the three can function on a higher level of balance than that of only two. Think of it in terms of a scale. If you have a two-sided scale with equal weight on each side, if one weight is removed the other is thrown off balance. When a relationship focuses on only one, when that relationship is severed for any reason there is no intermediary to mend it. The two sides are separate, and when in anger or confusion it is hard to see things in a different perspective (or rational mind) toward that one person because they are the object of your ill feelings. However, for the Unitrios, their system works in a trio. Imagine a scale with three equal weights. If one should fall, the other two will remain in balance. For the Unitrios, the idea that no one person weighs more on the scale is very important, as is the comfort and security that comes from having more than one "shoulder to cry on" or "hand to hold". This being said, the Unitrios do not believe in one definition or criteria of "love", or specifically how each trio must function. They know that a person can love more than one but each in different ways or for different reasons, therefore although the trio is of course a highly intimate relationship, it does not necessarily mean that each member must show the same form of "love" to one or to both. The trio (in their terms) is, the "ideal", meaning that collectively the trio should satisfy each persons ideal for any aspect of a romantic relationship. So where one person may fall short in ideal, the other takes their place. Of course, the purpose of the trio is not purely ideological and has other more technical reasonings as well.
.... ;____; Also, I'm working on responding to comments guys, SRS. pleasedonthurtme
Oh, coloring video for this will be up...eventually. OTL

That is one of your best pieces so far, it is simple but super SUPER effective your colour choice of blue and green really stood out on the paper. I find them quite cute cause they have their eyes closed.
OOOOOOOOOOHHH my gosh!!!! @_@ I am already in love with this picture!!! Arkelle, your skill and talent never ceases to amaze me! I saw this and I was like, why can't my art look this amazing??? The only thing is that Shu's cape looks a little too much like broken glass. I don't mean any offense though It sooo cool keep up the good work!

I-I just... I don't think I can function properly anymore... So. Much. GAHHHHTHERESSOMUCH- There's just so much complexity, and it's making my insides feel all happy n stuff ; u ; This is beautiful *^* just, beautiful. I-I love this... AND, COME ON, YOU'RE HEARING ALL OF THIS FROM A 12-YEAR-OLD THAT DISPISES JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING EVER (except art XD), THIS HAS GOTTA MEAN SOMETHING. YOU ARE JUST... GAHHHH. I adore your art so much <3 It's always so different each time, I mean, there's always different moods to your drawings. All that turquoise... ohh, it's so calming... lovely... Nuff said. o//3//< No matter how long I have to wait, I will LOVE reading your manga/webcomic someday... ^w^ I'm so inspired by you~
Wow I can't. I also love learning about new words and I can see why you choose them for the title of this work.
I think that was very brilliant of you to set deadlines and challenge yourself like that to different things
I like that aspect about yourself alot, that you challenge yourself to many different things, and you like to explore your options.
I think you wanting to draw them romantically is just really sweet. I FEEL how you are about certain things regarding my ocs
There are so many, romance scenes or love I want to display but sometimes I don't draw them or I don't know how to convey it in a way that will show how I feel it in my mind I guess??
I could always try of course but oxo! maybe...It would contain spoilers for the story so I'm not sure.
I think that's a beautiful way on how to define there relationship~! and I see that in my character that same type of thing (The balance) also goes on, regardless of the "adult' situations that occur.
This is very lovely, I love the hair, the way you coloured everything. The background. The overall feeling of this work overall it really gives a warming soft sweet moment and that's what really melts my heart about this picture.
It's soft. and lovely.
I really adore you as an artist I really do, Not just as an artist but as an overall person because your a very beautiful and creative person to.
You really inspire me.
I read your deep desciption of how there love is, like how you expressed about that there is three people on a scale and how even though one may fall short the other could pick up on but that's not the basis because it's not an ideal type of love.
That's a very through type of feeling, and it's very beautiful and very deep in emotion, very strong connections to each other.
I do agree that, they can also love in different ways and not for the same things. I like how you described that. Keep up the good work my dear!!

As if I didn't love using green turquose already... Now my brain has exploded with lovely, marine tones!
Calliope's hair is ridiculously beautiful, as usual, and this color palette just gives the entire thing a pleasant, dream-like atmosphere... The fluttering of Shy's cape gives this picture a nice, dynamic element. And the composition is great. And the colors. The colorrrrssss. Turquose outlines... Turquose shadows... Turquose highlights... Turquose everywhere! All of a sudden I feel like I can die happy. Like I said just a while ago, I'm feeling like I can't really help you anymore but am not as depressed as I was when I wrote that I'm gonna try anyway... If there only was something to critique. I suppose Shu has one odd looking lock, to the left of his big wisp of hair. It kind of looks like a cord stuck on his head rather than a lock of hair :/ And I wish the two had something different about their faces but yeah, that's just my and my obsession with aquiline noses and sharp cheeckbones.
A really beautiful piece I'm happy that I finally got to see it finished!
