TvT He's 2 years old now...I can't believe he's been with me that long....!
--------------- TvT H-hi guys...! Moar artsu...! xD Lol its been like, a day since I submitted something haha lol that never happens pfft.
TvT Anyways....this is a contest entry for lovely ~LunarHoney's contest on YouTube. ;w; M-more so entered because she is awesome rather than because I want to win....xD Do you guys notice? I tend to only enter the contests of my friends and don't care about winning~ lololol
TvT B-but yeah, theme is Magical Girls/Boys, so I couldn't resist drawing my Chimecho gijinka, Cyril, because his design was inspired by Magical boy concept. xDD
;v; Plus its his birthday! And I've been meaning to draw this for a while now. ;3; Y-you can read more about that in the below part if you care.
;v; Uhhm, so yeah....
The short explanation is that Cyril is a sort of "jester"/entertainer for my Frillish Gijinka, Princess Pilulu. He's a bit younger than her, and is very timid in nature. Pilulu is more interested in older, more "manly" and mature boys, so she doesn't think much about Cyril in the way he sees her. He loves her a lot, but isn't noticed by her because of his timidness and rather "feminine" look. All he wants is for her to notice him, and if he had the power he would make the world her perfect dreamland. She always talks about "dying the world in pinks and blues, where the the water tastes like sugar and bubbles like cotton candy" "A world where the sky and sea never separate, and where everything is perfect like a dream." TvT Ironically, Cyril just blends in so perfectly into that "dream" (color wise, symbolically), so much so that maybe that is why she doesn't notice him. He's her dream, she just hasn't seen it yet. TvT
The real reason I drew this:
TvT I love.....drawing children. And I love to see that beautiful, perfect, innocent love that they have. Call it "infatuation" or "puppy love", it doesn't matter. The love children can have for each other is more beautiful than any love I have ever seen between adults. There are no technicalities or deceit. Children have the ability to love with closed eyes- to love indifferently. And in case you've ever wondered why I love drawing children or why most of my characters are young, that is the reason. I don't think love should be a game. I hate seeing the sadistic interpretations of love that adults often have, how they can use the term "love" so loosely when they don't invest their whole self into that "love". Children don't think about looks or money or satisfaction, when they like someone, they like them. They can't explain why, but trying to explain an unexplainable force like love is stupid. When you start piling up reasons "why" you love someone, you loose track of the love itself. Its unexplainable. Its a force that has no reason. You love someone because you just do. If you feel the need to justify why, or your love comes from a forced place, then it isn't my definition of love. Its that gross, twisted kind of love that multiplies in your heart until you eventually can't even look at the person you "loved" anymore because its become so deceitful, lost in meaningless justifications.
Its probably stupid and naive, but i'd rather put faith in the beautiful and innocent love that children have than step one foot into that disgusting excuse for love I see all around me. Innocence is the most beautiful yet rare thing in the world because once you loose it you can never get it back.
;__; I don't mean to ramble on about nonsense, but it matters to me. And a big part of my reason for doing art is to show beauty in ways we often cannot see.
Saying a boy can't love a girl because he's too "pretty" is stupid. Saying that anything so frivolous can come between people when it comes to love is stupid because again, it is unexplainable and has no reason or rules. Gender doesn't have to do with real love despite common belief, nor does looks or anything so trivial. And if you think it does, then I feel sorry for you.
Everyone should learn to see with their eye closed once in a while.
And I wanted to draw this for Cyril because he reminds me of all the people out their who's sexuality is prejudged based on the way they look, or the pressure to fit into a particular orientation based on stereotypical standards society sets. I hate seeing the "tough" boys pick on the one quiet boy and calling him gay when he isn't. It isn't as bad with girls, but it happens too. I just really hate that pressure that is placed more so on boys to look and behave a certain way, and if they don't they are somehow automatically classified as "gay" or less of a "man" or even person because of it. There is nothing wrong with being gay, first of all. Second, who are you to judge someone or define them as "a lesser human being" based on what genitalia they happen to like. If you don't like it, fine. But do the world a favor and stop hurting innocent people and making them feel inferior for being who they are. //ENDRAMBLE
