Violet suits you, my dear by Sorelliena Violet suits you, my dear by Sorelliena
I am late for spirit day, but I've been working on this since then. I'm very supportive of LGBT rights, being a B myself XD

:bulletpurple:Sometimes people say that being homosexual, being bisexual, being transgendered is a choice--it's not.:bulletpurple:

More often than naught, you don't get to choose who you feel like. You don't get to choose whether or not you are outcasted or accepted by society. You don't get to choose between the guilt you feel for what you feel, or even the resentment and indignance and hope. You don't get to choose who you fall madly in love with. Sometimes it just happens.

Watch as the girl is gently changing colours. Even her heart is slowly, slowly gaining hue.

[link] <--A good website, chronically sequenced, of victims of homophobic violence dating farther back than the 13th century; the youngest victim I can find is 14 years old.

I hope one day we can break the prejudice and ignorance. Surely, violet suits us?

Violet Gel pen (omfg worst medium ever)
Black ballpoint pen

No sketch. Direct inking, 5 hours.

Violets symbolize modesty, and "A chance at happiness". Six leaves for the Lovers, 11 petals (one as the shirt XD) for Justice. Because love is blind. :heart:

Thank you kindly for viewing.

Wow, this one is really sweet, and I love the symbology.
It remind me of the slogan of a little gift shop in the gay neighborhood of Madrid -one of the best places ever to go for a walk, buy books, eat chinese food, have a hot coffee or just party- "we are proud of people who are proud of being themselves"

I love the lines and the pearl-collar-thingy :)

maybe this sounds strange but i love the fact that the dark girl is behide thes light mauve hands. its very impressive!
it's maybe not what you want to hear but i think you should rework it! take this as a sketch, work on little flaws, (like the neck-head proportion of the woman) shade out some of the details and make it perfect :la:! i just say that because it's really a very very good image. the concept is brilliant and also the style is very very lovely! you were right when you said that i might like it! :heart:

8D Thank you so kindly for your comment!

I am actually considering reworking it, but at a later time, when I get even better :D I want to make it as a sort of kick-my-own-ass type of thing. I will indeed keep this comment in mind and fix it at a later date :D

I hope this fades away one day...

I dislike a lot of GLBTs, however, who like to parade and jump to conclusions that a person is homophobic. Every person has a different level of tolerance and a different level of intolerance... (but omg I can't help but oggle at gays, what is it about it making them ten times more attractive X_X)

I'm creeping on your comments (forgive me for my creepiness) and I must say gay guys are the most attractive. Too bad they're not interested in us D:
