Trying some new stuff! Might make her a character idk yet
oo pretty =0 how do you put the slightly offset red/blue effect (not sure the name) on ur art? i think ive seen other pieces uve done that have that, it looks neat
Like. I respect pink now as actually a good color and understand that the only reason I had a distaste for it when I was younger was because it was ~girly~ and I ~wasn't like other girls~ but I also. Really dislike it when someone gives you something pink over other choices only because you are "girl."
i totally had this, when i was little at first i loved pink. like, really bright pink. i think it might've been bc it was my primary teacher's favorite color, idk. but then once i became aware of the gender stuff attatched to it i was like "ew pink! no i dont like pink!"
and now I think pink is nice (not my very favorite but it looks good) because i've kinda. sorted out gender stuff for me, figured out oh ok, it's fine for anyone to like pink, neato!
reminds me of how i used to vehemently resent disney princess stuff and just disney in general, like, if anything was disney it was automatically bad
(to be fair this could be in part from how loud the parks are which is bad for me)
but yeah, everyone at disney parks would call me princess, and dad explained to me that was because they were told to as a part of their job because they were told to "make little girls feel like princesses", so I (around 7yo at the time) got this big oversized shirt and used puffy paint or something to write out "Please don't call me princess--I'm a cat" in big letters and i think thats one of the most iconic moments of my childhood
artfight ref from summer last year but i still like it so might as well post!!
this is Sugar!! he's one of my favorite characters to plan dialogue/story things for,, i dont know how to express how much i enjoy his arc,,, expect to see him around
he's a sweet [hehe] lil friend who pretty much everyone likes! everyone except a certain few, that is...
[short id: a reference sheet for fallow's character, Sugar. Sugar is a cream-colored cat with a tuft of gray "hair"/fur covering the left side of his face. His visible eye is green, and he has thick eyelashes. The ref contains several drawings of him as well as some text. longer id under the cut.]
"Enjoys baking and gardening
Dissolves when exposed to water
Very polite and positive with the occasional snark
Murder? What murder?"
Below this textbox is a drawing of Sugar from the side, as well as a color palette. Sugar is facing left and walking. He is a quadrupedal cat character, drawn in a semi-cartoonish style with soft paint-ish shading. He is small and cream-colored, with fluffy chest fur and a long swishy tail. He has darker-colored "hair" covering the left half of his face. His right eye, the only one visible, is large with a bright green iris and thick eyelashes. He also has a muzzle but no visible nose. In this drawing, his eye is open and he is smiling.
To the right of this is a second drawing in which Sugar sits down with his tail curled over his paws. His body is still facing left but his head is turned towards the viewer, and he looks off at something out-of-frame to the viewer's right. His eye is half-closed in a neutral or perhaps bored expression.
Below both drawings of him are two simpler chibi drawings depicting him wearing clothes. In both of these drawings he sits facing towards the viewer and smiling with his tail up beside him in a curved shape.
The first drawing shows him wearing what could be the cat equivalent of a bathrobe. It is dark green with lighter green fluff around the edges.
In the second picture, he wears a fullbody protective suit similar to a beekeeper's outfit. It features a pale green sun hat, shaped so that his ears can stick up through it but still be covered. The brim of the hat is covered in flowers. Pale pink/transparent material hangs down from the brim of the hat and attatches to the body portion of the suit, which is the same pale green, with a pocket in the front that's full of flowers, and darker green gloves/boots over his paws. His tail is covered in the same type of pink plastic-looking material that hangs down from his hat.
All of this is laid over a background of an image of some sort of dessert balls in a glass vase. The image is faded and mostly a pale pink color. There are pale green rounded shapes atop the background to emphasize certain parts of the ref, including one behind the text, one behind the walking Sugar's head, and one under each drawing of him so that it looks like he has ground to stand on. The corners of the picture are rounded off with a border of white lace, and the outside is colored a slightly darker pink.
Art I made for Trans Day of Visibility! Keep existing. Keep living.
Paper miniatures of the day!
[id: a photo of some tiny papercrafted items. One is a poster showing a human skeleton with the parts labeled too tiny to read; one is a dart board; most are magazines, including "People", "The New Yorker", and "TIME"; to the bottom right there are a couple of boxes made of pink decorative paper; and to the bottom left there are two flower pots, one of which someone has picked up with their thumb and index finger, most likely to show scale. The pot is perhaps twice the size of their thumb, and the other items are similarly small. end id.]

[short id: a drawing of Abysmal Sparkle, a brightly-colored, curvy cat/ish character with beetle wings. he walks towards the viewer with an aloof expression. full id under the cut.]
