[DTA ENTRY] we're explorer !! by shayxy [DTA ENTRY] we're explorer !! by shayxy
--- if you want to write me a critique on this piece, you don't need to read what comes next AT ALL ! ---


FINALLY. THIS. IS. DONE
please zoom up on this cuz I worked hard on those damn details ;-;

I literally spent all night on this, I must admit that I'm pretty pround of how it came out ;v;


Now, why all this, you may ask
Well, this character Tropical shooting star Grabbygon DTA [OPEN!] is a draw to adopt !
and
I really love it, ok
I love it's specie, their anatomy, shapes, and their lil hands hears are the cutest tbh
and then
my good friend @/rikoneko, with who I always pair my character with, had just got this amazing character from @/Lisanata : toyhou.se/936096.gla-eul#34259…
and
I was already planning on drawing something to try to get the grabbygon babe, but then @/rikoneko and I 's imaginations went wild and, we, we just invented a complete backstory for them ??

Yeah, we went really far with their concept !

The DTA would be named Azalée (she/them) ( french everywhere, sorry ). She's kind of nice and knows how to handle people, but she's pretty anoyed with her everyday life. That's wen Glaïeul ( gla - ï - eul )( the green character ) and her met ! He is very adventurous, and has a pretty high self esteem. He also doesn't really fear danger and often put his friends to risk. They become close friends, and it gives Azalée a chance to experience a lot of adventures and trips to new regions she never saw ! Because she's taugh and a lot bigger than Glaïeul, she can help him with a lot of things when they explore dangerous places !
That's why they have those bags. I also thaught it'd be a cool side note that they love the food shop "snaQ" (made up name of course) and, since it's a multinational factory, they'd buy some at times, when they enter a town that has one !
They are verry close and truly rely on each other for everything. and. I love them.

I hope I'll get to keep her tbh ! I'd love to roll play her with @/rikoneko. I'm sure it'll make a lot of great scenes that I could get inspired to draw, huh ;v;

Also ! Their names are french flowers names !
Azalée, in the flower language, means "modération, tempérence" ( same in english ) since it was her parents that named her like that. They expected her to be a calm little girl. ( wich she really is not haha )
And Glaïeul means "force de caractère" which you can translate by "strength of character(mind)"

the flower you can see on the left corner is a crocus, and it has a meaning too :
Crocus :  joie, allégresse, Bonheur de jeunesse. Allégresse juvénile

( translates to " crocus : hapyness, glee, youth, joy )


I really tried my best, I hope you'll like it !

whaou c'est absolument splendide!
J'adore l'attention que tu as porté au background mais plus que tout... C'est la ligne dynamique qui part de la queue d'Azalée jusqu'à sa tête (et donc jusqu'à l'interaction entre Glaeuïl et Azalée) qui donne toute sa dimension à ce dessin. Cela attache directement le regard et on a du mal à s'en détacher <3

C'est tout simplement splendide et même sans description cela raconte déjà une histoire ! 
J'espère sincèrement que tu vas remporter ce DTA car on peut sentir ta passion et le travail fournit dans ce dessin ^^
