This is for :icontakichi-taru:.

This picture was very personal and important to me and it's why I worked so hard on it. The characters are Seth (left) and Dick (right). Dick is my own character and Seth belongs to Taru. As I've mentioned in a previous picture I posted called Fourth Of July, she's leaving on the Fourth of July which just so happens to be Dick's birthday.

It feels like the whole world is against me for drawing this (mostly just everyone I know offline). So I feel pretty sick to my stomach with nervousness, worry, guilt and a multitude of other feelings. But the feeling that overpowers them all is my feeling of love. I truly love my dear friend. And no matter what troubles I get for this, no matter the pains and agony everyone will throw on me, this feeling won't change and no one could stop me from finishing this piece.

Please be safe my friend. I'll miss you.

OMGGGGGGGGGGGGG! SO GREAT! I love it... omg I love it.... This is probably one of my favorite pictures you've ever done! The emotions and the colors and... I just love it.

And if anyone gives you shit for this picture tell them to get off their high horse already. It's just doing something nice, good god. You're an adult and know right from wrong.

Thank you. <:] For all of it. You're so sweet and I feel a bit better now. <XD :hug:

Iz cuz we lub ya! XD

I'm glad you feel better. Someone should NEVER feel bad about their art. (Well, unless it was like that guy in Mexico that killed a dog for his art, that's not okay.) Besides, I like Dick and Seth, they're cute together. And Grace is a mother hen, so she'll be a bit protective of Seth to help balance it out if you want~ ;D

Who will give you shit about this picture D8? If they do Imma kick their asses....very great artwork :) Poses are great and it's what sets the mood here :)

Ah, my roommates. They don't like me talking to Taru because she's only 16. As if I'm gonna hop a plane and go sleep with her the first chance I get. *rolls eyes* Just because I'm a 22 year old and she's 16, they won't stop calling me a pedophile too even though we're just friends. -_-;

Anyway, thank you. I'm really proud of the poses too. :D
Paintzeebrush Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2010 on your roommate's faces. They're the one who should be getting laughed at for thinking such things. They're the perverts, not you. I'd give them a huge dropkick in the tush >8[

You're welcome :) You should be proud of those poses, they turned out great! Miss ya on tegaki e though D|
