Hello everyone, how have you been?
Sorry for the lack of updates and art, i've been super busy :iconcryforeverplz:
I have not forgotten the people i owe art to either, sorry for stretching your patience T^T

So about this drawing, this is a more serious version of rainbow girl, it's about people trying to put us down, kill our dreams,
as artists we get this A LOT unfortunately D:
actually, anyone who's ever had a dream probably got a few dream killers telling them they'll never succeed or trying to impose their own standards and wished upon them.
But most of the time, trust me, You know what's best for yourself, and you have to trust your gut :)

Anyway, i hope you like it~~~~~~~~ :la:

Painting the world by YuuzaBirth of an Artist by Yuuza FOR MORE, WATCH ME :iconyuuza::iconyuuza::iconyuuza::iconyuuza::iconyuuza:

:new:THANK YOU SO MUCH :icongwendolyn12: for the DD, this makes me so happy :icontearyguyplz: especially because this drawing holds special meaning to me because i've had close family members telling me i won't succeed in art and several other things i told them i plan to do in the future and in the end i did succeed so THERE! haha
And looking back to those memories now i realized i could have listened, or give up my dreams but i didn't and i'm happy now that i have accomplished part of the things i said i would do (and the rest are on their way).
So anyway, i'm glad this particular drawing was awarded this special deviantART feature :love::new:
:iconrougekohl: made a lovely poem inspired from this drawing
I will paint myself the colors that I want.I will paint myself the colors that I want.
I will wear the masks I choose to wear.
I will sing these songs with words of my own making.
I will dance these dances with my own steps. In my own time.
I will paint myself the colors that I want.
I will wear the lies I choose to wear.
I will think my own thoughts.
Choose my own mistakes.
Choose my own triumphs.
Choose my own desires.
I will dream my own dreams.
I will bleed when I want to. Cry when I want to.
I will let creation hear my laughter. When I choose to.
I will. At my own choosing.

This one really speaks to me.
I had my natural hair color til about a year ago.

One day, my girlfriend was dying her hair and asked me if I wanted to dye mine.
I said... "I dont know."
And I asked her why she would ask and if she liked my hair.
She said, quite bluntly. "Its kinda boring".

I laughed really hard about that. XD
It was the small push I needed to show her the hair style I'd actually always wanted- purple to blue ombre.
I had always avoided it because i didnt want to spend money on my hair.  Plus hair dye cost... Plus effort...

Anyway, she did it for me and taught me how.
Since then my reflection has cheered me up XD
So worth it.

Let no one tell you what you can or can't say or do. Be natural. Be yourself. 

Btw, the drawing is beautiful! Heart

This is really deep and beautiful.
I love what you've done with this piece.

The fact that things like this actually happen in reality is really sad...

I like it overall, but one detail that I love the most -- the tendril (drop? lexical gap, sorry XD) of hair that the girl herself is painting. I just love how truly liquid and satisfyingly paint-like it looks (!), not to mention the message it completes.

I will honestly stop to watch this everytime I see this~
Its such a lovely piece and it tells the story of people who
don't fit in and don't want to fit in if it means being someone 
who you're not. All these comments on this piece just proves
how everyone can relate to the girl struggling to be themselves.

I don't think this rambling made any sense, but main point is
that I love your works! Particularly this one! :lovesquee:
