GUMI Cantabile 2012 Spirit Day by HikariTenjou GUMI Cantabile 2012 Spirit Day by HikariTenjou
Woahs! I totally forgot that it was Spirit Day today @__@ *spits out artwork done just a few hours ago* Anyway, a kind of motivational poster towards the anti-bullying cause this is ^^The bottom, in case people can't read it, says "Say no to bullying and Yes to dressing as Kappas." ^^ Always choose Kappas over bullying.

I've noticed from the other works submitted that people were telling their stories on bullying and how they were often victims, so I guess I'll share mine. In elementary school, I had just come to Canada so I knew no English whatsoever. I hung out with a group of people of the same ethnicity where all of them were male except one. That one other girl was the leader of the group and since I was the only other female she wouldn't let me leave! >.< Well after being the butt of pretty much all their jokes (I was a little slow back then) I found a real friend (AMU TANNNN this is you!!! Do you still remember? :D) She invited me to her birthday party where I had the most fun ever! Then she moved. Then I found out I was moving to her area. I was overjoyed! Then I realized that we didn't go to the same school XP though the area was a 20 min walk away. At my new elementary school I was still shy and quiet and went out of my way to make others happy. I made two new great friends (one of whom eventually turned into my best friend~ Arinaliiiii :heart:). Without them I don't know what I would have done.

I was a weird kid as a child despite being quiet (still proudly weird now ^^) and everyone knew. My two friends at my school would tell me how the popular people told them to stop being friends with me and to be friends with them (they never did :)). Even though they'd say I was really nice to my face, I knew what they said behind my back. But you see, with such good friends that never bothered me. Eventually I stopped being nice to people/ going out of my way to do things for them. They didn't really care about me so instead I invested my time into hanging out with my real friends :)

Moral of my story is: friendship is awesome! If my friends weren't there to be supportive and weird with me, I don't think I would have ever survived! Thank god I made real friends! Thank god I met these wonderful people~! Epilogue: Now in high school bullying for me has subsided (I expected it to be the worst here but actually elementary school was the worst. I guess we all just grew out of it.) and I have plenty of true friends :)

Ok now back to the actual picture :3 It's a good thing Gumi and Roro have each other as weird friends~ I'd totally dress in a kappa jumpsuit if only someone would do it with me T^T ... and I knew where to get one >.> And yes those are staring people in the background XP They feel awkward but Gumi and Roro could not be more proud of their strangeness ^w^

LOL I can't draw male/muscular bodies yet XD well the next unit in Art we're doing is body drawing so maybe I'll learn from there >.>

I know you're scare of muscles ?_? is there something else about Them? Or is it about Gumi's drawn-on abs? XDD

You know... this is my favorite couple of all time... but I haven't drawn them once. OTL I need to. Badly.

Anyway, don't feel bad that you almost forgot Spirit Day. I didn't even know what Spirit Day WAS until today, and I didn't do ANY art for it. So... yup.

Kappa wa watashi no KITCHEN de tanishi yudeteru!

Yeah. I need to. I think one of the story ideas I have for them would look better as a manga... But... I don't think my style would fit the story very well. XD You wouldn't be able to take my style seriously, and... I have a pretty angsty story in mind. ;n;

Yeah, no problem. Stuff happens.

It's ok XD I can't do scenery either XP As for guys that don't look like girls, all I can say is :"lots of reference pictures" I went through the exact same thing =w=

What?! Are you kidding me? Your scenery is (pardon the French) the SHIT. That apology amusement park was the best... And yeah... I'll be looking up references for sure. @_@

The amusement park was just a bunch of lines XD did you notice I was lazy and just covered up 1/2 the thing with that huge GUMI sign? XDD

As for references, please I look at Manbou no Ane's references all the time :P Without them I would be lost forever *tears of joy and gratitude*
