Happy Birthday Cyril!!!
....a few hours late, but...it still counts!!//shot
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 :heart:
-----------------

The real reason I drew this:

//STARTRAMBLE
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

It's an amazing drawing - I love the colors, the pose, the moment it captures. And yes I read your whole comment (the explanation above :D ) and I totally agree with what you said about the innocent love that only children seem capable of.

I think in part it is also, because children don't have those worries that adults carry around with them (money, how others perceive them, health etc.) which liberates them (the children). I also noticed the changes in myself while growing up: Once you're an adult (or even a teenager) there is so much you need to think about/take care of/worry about, that it can have a really suffocating effect on yourself and how you perceive/interact with others.

I love this drawing. It has such a serene affect upon me. It makes me think of when I was younger, where I would do just about anything because I didn't think about my self-imposed "limits" or learn about fears. With the nice contrast of blue and orange and yellow and pink blending it all together, it gives me a nostalgic yet sad feel. Almost as if it's a fragile dream that could break any minute. The scene itself makes me feel as if I'm glimpsing into a private - almost sacred moment, one that might make a huge impact on a story. All in all, it is beautiful. Absolutely stunning.

I love this so much. The colors remind me of the awesome game called "Candy Land" and the Lisa Frank series <---Please don't kill me for saying that lol. And I envy you for creating trees so nicely T__T.

BTW, you forgot to say Lettuce at the end because I read the whole thing in one sitting lol. And should ":devBlueRoseArkelle :" be "*BlueRoseArkelle? XD

xD haha omg, I should make the lettuce thing a permanent thing! e3e oh wait, then people would know to write lettuce and not read.....xD I should put a secret word at the end of all the textwalls! :iconallthethingsplz:

I'm a little tired now so as much as I'd love to have a deep chat with you about love and stuff, I'll just keep things brief and state that I understand your point, I think, but you're being too vague for me to know if I agree with you or disagree with you XD
Especially because I don't think I know how old exactly Cyril and Pilulu are.

But, this picture. It's quite simple but it doesn't matter because that rainbow of colors adds all the detail this picture needs!
I like the mistyness of the background, and the fact that there is something, namely the trees. It's also pretty cool that the top part is mostly yellow and the bottom part is mostly blue, like a yellow sky and a blue ocean. The trees also look kind of a hybrid of trees and coral reefs, at least in my opinion.
As for Cyril's pose... It's really cool. And I love the way the bubbles are scattered all around!

But I also have something little to point out^^;
I think we should be able to see a part of Cyril's ear underneath his hair. Now there's... Nothing. Just skin. You know, there, that exposed part, to the left of his cheek.
I also feel his arms are somewhat noodle-like... They don't really have shape around the elbow, especially. But this might just be a personal prefernce.
I would've left the small white stripes around the bubble with Pilulu's image in it out because I feel they're kind of out of place but again, that's me and my personal preferences.
The only thing I'd say is a mistake is the fact that there's no ear.

But tiny details aside, I really love the color palette of this picture and the composition:love: I was actually planning on using this palette for one of the pictures I'm working on right now but I think I'll do something different^^; I'm too fascinated by this! I have to choose different colors or I'll subdonsciously end up trying something too similar to this XD

xD lol its okay you don't have to write anything about it, its just my feels. TwT
;v; Cannon-speaking, Cyril is 8 and Pilulu is 9. ;_; I just mean that it is easier for children to love in a way that does not stem from deceitful places, such as with looks, success, sexually, etc. They tend not to think of things on that level, so their interest is more genuine. Of course, adults can be this way too, it is just much rarer.

TvT and thank you....!! :heart:
xD Haha, yes! I'm glad you pointed out the trees looking like coral reefs. I kind of wanted that, to add to the idea of a world where "sky and sea never separate". xD I'm sneaky-sneaky!

xD Ahaha, lol you are right! Realistically, his ear should be showing at least a little bit. TvT I'm just arrogant and don't like to emphasize things if they annoy me, and that angle and his ear annoyed me to know end //shot
TvT Haha, and yeah his arm lol. I tried to reference kids arms a bit, and notice that they are less defined around the joints as compared to adults. xD But Cyril is just lanky in the legs and arms haha. TvT But yeah lol I can't draw arms and legs to save my life...//shot

;w; Aww, and thank you again...!!!
;3; nooo you should use the palette! Its so much fun to work with! xD I use it all the time....//fail
;___; Sorry I ruined your idea...... //shot

Alright:nod: Younger than I thought... I have only, like, 1 child character that young XD
One question, though! Cause I'm curious:3 What sort of love are you referring to? Platonic, romantic, sexual, something else or just love in all of its forms?

=D

Aa haa haa, I know that feeling! But I try to do something anyway^^;
And I can't draw kids to save my life^^;

You're welcome^o^
No need to apologize, I'll imrpovise as usual >D I mean, improvise in terms of color.
