It's true! Santa Claus is really a pirate!!! Remember when he asked Rudolph to guide his sleigh on that foggy night? Well, Rudolph is a bastard and would only do it if he got paid for his services..but Santa isn't a sucker...so he flew that damn sleigh without that bitchass Rudolph...and you know what happened?...he crashed and fell into the pacific ocean and a shark ate his leg and hand and a jellyfish stung his eye!! So now Santa has turned into one bad ass mofo. And he is about to get his revenge on that damn reindeer! It's a merry Fuckin' Christmas!!!! Muwhahahaha

BTW...I made that story up on the spot just now....if you couldnt tell

I was going to wait for the final design for chapter 1 (final design for Paul) before submitting... (at least have them with the same hair color)... but gave up...

So~ Paul end up in a dark background where you can't make out what color he is XD

Chapter 2 is pretty much just introducing a new character call Maya, so I decided to draw Maya standing there... lol...

Its odd... since this is the first time I ever did a proper lineart before coloring... and color without laying down the values (the type of grey-scale drawing I always do...) so I learned a lot from this painting....

Anyway... anyone who wants to see the PROGRESS of this painting can view here: [link]

Anyways, enjoy ^^

thanks to :iconpepperseeds:, I fixed the horribly drawn hand

A summer sun that blows my mind
Is falling down on all that I've ever known
Time will kiss the world goodbye
Falling down on all that I've ever known
Is all that I've ever known

A dying scream makes no sound
Calling out to all that I've ever known
Here am I, lost and found
Calling out to all

We live a dying dream
If you know what I mean
All that I've ever known
It's all that I've ever known

Catch the wheel that breaks the butterfly
I cried the rain that fills the ocean wide
I tried to talk with God to no avail
Calling my name and out of nowhere
I said if you won't save me, please don't waste my time

All that I've ever known
It's all that I've ever known

Catch the wheel that breaks the butterfly
I cried the rain that fills the ocean wide
I tried to talk with God to no avail
Calling my name and out of nowhere
I said if you won't save me, please don't waste my time

A summer sun that blows my mind
Is falling down on all that I've ever known
Time will kiss the world goodbye
Falling down on all that I've ever known
Is all that I've ever known

Well, i have to say where this crazy idea came from. Last weeks, the usual lazy me was browsing internet when, suddenly i dont know how i entered on a comment page of dunno what exactly :)) and i saw some statemets from a few persons that passed through this. 
only one moved me to tears: "It was a known person to me. Even today I have nightmares. It`s a shock every single time. I didnt dare to tell anyone - mom, dad, or other people. What`s worst is the fact that i wasn`t the only one. Later, i found out that there were others. Its hard for me to stay around other people and act normal but i try to hide it as best i can. (...)"

I tried to represent this kind of "nighmare" as good as I could. In the past 2 weeks I was literally tortured by the thought "how to represent this better?". Not so many ideas I had but, in the end I choose to draw this.

[edit]
Quick edit before I start replying later today, but I want to say I deeply apologize to anyone out there if this has offended you. I do not mean to turn this into a war, I only wish for peace and equality.
I am still firm in my beliefs, but I realize I may have worded them in an aggressive manner, and for that, I am sorry.
I fully support straight relationships, but I am against homophobia and misunderstanding of gender fluidity.
I fully support gender roles or conformity, but I am against societal expectation.
The point is NOT to get rid of these things, but to make it so people are not FORCED into them.
My ultimate goal is for everyone to be able to relate to these messages despite gender, sex, identity, race, religion, or anything else.
I am only using these stories and characters as a tool to do so.

Thank you all for the support and I hope you accept my sincere apologies

Picture This
By *Tyshea and ~Aibi-Cake
A collection of short stories about love between girls.

-------------------:bulletpurple:-------------------

As you all hopefully know, PT is all about love between girls. So yes, lesbians, if you so choose to label them.
We know spirit day isn't just for lesbians, but since the story deals with LGBT empowerment, we wanted to do this really, really bad.
(We apologize for only having ladies in PT thusfar, but when the time comes, we'll be doing this same thing with boys in the future.)

As we've worked on this project and uploaded development images on here, some of you have mentioned the girls being too overtly masculine, but really, what is gender?
Gender is something defined by culture. Gender and biological sex are different.. and gender expression varies insanely from person to person.
Gender is something many use as a weapon for hate.
But, to me and many people, gender is fluid.
So within this story, we tried to explore many types of gender expression within girl and girl love:

-------------------:bulletpurple:-------------------
:bulletpurple:Sam&Sara: are our "androgynous" couple.
Though many of you want to label Sam the "boy" because of her name, height, and the fact she does sports, this is not the case.
We purposefully made them to be very interchangeable as far as gender roles go. Gender conformity shouldn't matter to any couple, straight, gay, or anything else.
Sara is a "tomboy" because she likes video games and skating. Sam is a "tomboy" because she plays sports. But really, "tomboy" is just a term, and what defines what is a "boyish" or "girlish" activity?
The focus in their story is more based on the romantic aspect that love transcends gender and biology, so we wanted their pose to be tender, protective, mutual.
There's a sense of masculine protectiveness about both of them, and a sense of fragile tenderness and femininity to both of them.

:bulletwhite:Jay&Jess: are our "masculine" couple.
Honestly, a lot of people have a hard time understanding this couple because they both have aggressively masculine body expression.
"Gay girls dress like boys just to get girls, right?" Wrong. Why CAN'T girls wear men's clothes? Why can't men wear girl's clothes? Gender conformity.
A girl can wear men's clothes and still like men. A girl can wear men's clothes and still like girls. Or like masculine girls. Your sexual preference has nothing to do with your personal expression.
We hope to give their story a very boyish charm to it. We want them to be very protective of each other. There is no "damsel" in this relationship.
That's why their pose is very blunt, strong, and steadfast.

:bulletpurple:Stella&Gale: are our gender conforming relationship.
Gale is masculine, and Stella is feminine.
On the outside, they do follow the typical "butch and femme" dynamic.
Is it WRONG to follow gender roles? No, not really. If it works for you in a healthy way, it's great. There's a reason it exists, I'm sure.
But when gender roles become an expectation, to the point where it harms and isolates groups of people, it's just a tool for oppression.
Gale and Stella happily conform to their gender roles, and we hope to portray it as a healthy "protector" and "nurturer" give-and-take.

:bulletwhite:Mona&Su-Mi: are our "feminine" couple.
They seem to be very widely accepted, because "if you like women, but still want to dress like a woman, that's great! It's hot!"
Ah, objectification. Despite the undesirable portrayal of femme-on-femme lesbian porn, we definitely didn't want to discount the fact that lipstick lesbians exist and are very prominent.
What IS wrong with conforming to your gender and liking others who do the same? There's a sense of equality there that you don't get in opposite gender relationships.
As two feminine women, we wanted them to be tender, nurturing, quiet. Somewhat sensual, but still modest, straying away from the objectified "lesbian porn," but not denying their sexuality.


-------------------:bulletpurple:-------------------

We don't mean to label our characters, or their stories. But sadly, the problem of gender conformity is still rampant in our culture, so it DOES effect them. We can't turn a blind eye to that.
It effects real life same-sex couples, it effects real life straight couples. it effects young people who are harassed in schools and in the streets.
We don't want to label them, but we do want to address these very real problems.
We label them only so the reader has an easier time understanding them, and understanding what we're trying to say.
We label them because we want to question how we label others.

Because in the end, we need to stop looking at gender, and start looking at people.

Happy Spirit Day, in memory of those heroes.
Let's dye the world purple.
No Hate.

I did the preliminary sketch and color comp, she lined everything, then I colored and did the typography.
Since it is a collaboration, it will also show up in her gallery, please feel free to take a peek at her deviation to read her opinions in the comments and support her as well!
