>w< Happy Spirit Day everyone!!~
...But i'm a little late this year OTL

;u; Wanted to draw something for Spirit Day again this year. ;//~//; Sorry for being late though asdfghjkl so busy I can't even- and no I don't just mean busy with Pokemanz unfortunately OTL

If you don't know what Spirit Day is, it is a day when you wear the color purple to show your support for the efforts against bullying, more specifically in regards to the LGBT/LGBTQIA community.
;//~//; As someone who has been bullied for most of my life, I'm very passionate about putting a stop to it, especially in regards to bullying over things that should be human freedoms. I myself have not faced bullying in regards to sexuality or gender identity (more for aesthetic reasons), but there are many, many people who do and my heart aches for all the people who do. I'm sure it goes without saying that I'm a firm believer that gender does not define people in exclusivity and gender does not play a part in what I define as the meaning of love. Remember that we are all human beings, no matter how our lives and choices may differ. At the end of the day, no one person's life should be considered worth more or less simply by whom they choose to love or what gender they may identify with. Remember that you do not have to make the same choices as them, nor do you have to like their decisions, but it is simple human decency to not torment or belittle others for pursuing their own happiness especially when it is of no consequence to that of your own.

T//v//T Anyways, just a simple drawing~ It is of my OC, Euclid. Without being too overly spoilery, the reason why I chose to draw Euclid is because he/she struggles with gender identity, specifically as a result of the influence of human gender roles upon him/her as a member of a species that does not have any. o3o Though i'm sure even though I haven't mentioned this before it wasn't like a super unexpected thing to mention, but you know. I shall not say specifically why or to what extent as of yet, but yes~
TuT There is symbolism and stuff in the drawing that might explain things better if elaborated but i'll just leave it at that because I suck at explaining and yeah~ >3> Also yes I know Orchids don't grow exactly like that CREATIVE LIBERTIES. I CALL CREATIVE LIBERTIESSSS //shot
xD Also lol this will probably be the only time ever that you'll see Euclid's legs. SO ENJOY THEM imeanwhat- //shot
My Unitrios characters have a very different idea of provocativeness/indecency/unattractiveness in regards to the body, and the legs are one of those things. Traditionally they wear long skirt-like or some sort of fabric things to completely cover the lower half of their bodies, from hips to the floor. The separation in between and harsh movement of the legs while walking is considered ungraceful and highly unattractive in their culture, while the top half of the body can be completely exposed for both genders and it is perfectly acceptable (though the majority of females are flat-chested or almost so yeah, you know). Euclid heavily follows this tradition of dress, so pretty much unless he/she is completely naked you will never ever ever see any legs xD

;u; Oh, and before I go, yessu, there will be a video for this on my YouTube channel sometime soon~
;__; Sorry for lack of art and videos lately but all of my busyyyyy. TAT Please don't hurt meeeeeeee OTL

Now off to go finish more commissions! TuT/

Excuse my stupidity, but what exactly are the LGBT and LGBTQIA communities? I mean, I have kind of a vague idea, but I'm not completely, entirely sure on exactly what they are.

And I completely agree with you as far as the love-gender rules go. Morally, I think boys go with girls and girls go with boys, but I don't think that people should abide by my moral ideas, you know? It kind of annoys me whenever my family (on one of those rare occasions) when we speak of it because, although we all share the same moral ideas, I, like... People should love who they want to love regardless of gender and whatever other reasons they may be, but my family's more... solid on our morals, if that makes sense. 

So... Anyways! Amazing picture! His/her anatomy is amazing, and the color choice is beautiful! His/her hair looks so detailed and real, and the orchids (which are my favorite flowers <3) look so - enter synonym for amazing/beautiful here-. Good work, Arkelle!

I feel like I'm spamming on every single picture of yours because every time I just say, "WOW SPECTACULAR COLORING GR9 PIECE." *Faves and puts head down quietly* uvu
TaschaaChan Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wow it's always :3 
The meaning of the drawing means a lot...because I know what it's like to be many different ways sadly. So this drawing and the meaning of it, shows me that, or giving me the message: 'you're not alone!' 
It's a message of strength, hope and kindness to all who live right now, lived in the past and who will live in the future, no matter what they look like, nor their choices they make. 
This drawing actually means a lot to many me as well.

Arkelle I'm so jelly that peanut butter can't mask my taste. That sounds so wrong but I'm sticking to it! I missed spirit day too OTL... Euclid is so pretty ~ The way you drew her eyes feels like it's giving off a "if you don't like it leave" vibe. I have to ask though why the books? I mean like do they symbolize anything?

I'm glad you've drawn things for this day!  I was never bullied but someone close to me suffered severe cyberbullying, and it was horrible.  ...although I don't even know what day this is but I will celebrate it in my own way! xD

As always, this is beautiful.  I think it's amazing that you can have so much detail with chalk pastels!  Do you have any advice on how to make it so... clean? x'D

Also I'm finding myself very interested in this character... and this story in general... I love being able to hear more about your stories!  It's so exciting for me *o*
HenryCreates Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Well it's a super epic picture and a super epic meaning...... I know how much bullying hurts because lets face it, I'm in middle school and I'm kind of (how do I word this??) gay..... (awkward pause......) well the world isn't perfect as the internet (gawd I wish I could block people), but the picture is perfect and only you arkelle could draw a super pervy picture and put a thought felt meaning behind it..... "Akelle changing the world one Yaoi at a time..." (I need to re-evaluate my life XD)well I guess the general meaning behind this is I LOVE YOU ARKELE!!!!!!!!!

I'm not very used to bullying (i have been ignored and felt outside and lightly bullied) but luckily here in sweden many schools have programs against bullying (It's illegal for a school here to not take action)
BlueRoseArkelle Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
;//3//; I was bullied a lot throughout school, though as an adult it is no where near what it was. Though, not in regards to sexuality or gender identity. Aesthetic reasons mostly.
TvT Its nice to hear that other countries are more proactive on the subject. ;___; When I was a kid, adults/teachers did literally nothing against bullying. They were more likely to tell you to stop whining or "nobody likes a tattle" OTL
Its much better now, but I wish it was better then and even now more can be done. TnT

What a wonderfull drawing ^-^ I really admire how you can use only one colour just many different shades in a drawing >///<
I also can relate to being bullied even thought it never was because of sexuality more just the way I am and look.. I hate people bullying someone because they happen to be to fat or thin for their stupid ideals!
BlueRoseArkelle Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
>//u//> Daw, thank you! ;w; I love using minimal color palettes <333

;___; Unf, me too~ Exactly.
I never....quite understood it. Like...I don't know, if I don't like someone I just ignore them. I don't see how its enjoyable or considered "cool" to hurt or belittle others for being beyond a narrow-minded comfort zone/ideal. I would never want to go out of my way to make someone else feel bad, especially for things beyond their control; like looks. Its seems so silly and petty and what do people really gain from it other than a forced sense of superiority? I don't know...I just wish people would put themselves in the victims shoes and think how they would feel if it were them. If more people were less egocentric and ignorant than maybe it wouldn't be such a common thing...
TeruAndRaiku Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
tehe ^//^

I don't get it either D= Why be mean when you can be nice and maybe make someones day a little better =/ I realy don't like thhose people that are all nice with their friends and then when they are alone they craptalk them like crazy either ;__;
I try to think that they must have had something bad happen so they are actually very sad and that's why they bully people.. But that is kind of no excuse =(
I agree with you the world would be a much better place if people stopped and thought about it >-<
Stardust-Thief Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2013  Student General Artist
It's a very beautiful piece, I like it a lot and I like the fact that you did it with a purpose. I know your feel about bullying.While I was never bullied over sexuality, I was still bullied and it is perhaps the thing that has affected me most. Glad to see people can have empathy for others and stand against this issue. What society needs in order to stop bullying is awareness, so that parents can teach kids from early ages that bullying is a bad thing. Many kids do it "innocently" (unknowingly is the word... kids can come from Hell :P ), and it still does not make it right because they happen to scar many people's self esteem. 

So feels aside now... I really like your coloring. You work your gradients pretty well and I like the blue light illusion, you make a harmonic palette without sacrificing contrast and impact. Good job!
BlueRoseArkelle Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
>//u//> Daww, thank you so much!!~
TuT Yes... exactly~ At the end of the day, it doesn't matter for what reason someone is bullied. Everyone who has been a victim of that knows all too well the type of scars that it leaves, often the kind that can't be seen. Children especially can be really cruel, and that is because they are egocentric and often unable to yet see beyond their own lives and the consequences their actions have on others. TvT But yes, the best thing to do is to spread awareness, and to relate to people, young or old, that it is never okay to torment or belittle another human being for the sake of pleasure or self-righteousness. TvT Its okay a small thing, but i'm glad that I can share diversity and the idea of equality in my art~

>u< And thank you again! I'm glad you think so <333
