🌹 OC Setsuki 雪月🌹
Happy 1st anniversary to my IG!! ٩(๑^o^๑)۶
Big thank you to all of you for all the love and support that you guys have given me for the past year!! 🙇
I used to wonder if I'd be happier if I had a different passion instead, like singing, dancing, or sports. Or at least a better appreciated / more versatile art form. Manga drawing was solitary, simply because very few around me appreciate it. But then IG opened me to this wonderful art community, where so many amazing artists inspire and support each other. I made so many friends here, and my idol even liked my drawings omg I'm so happy I can die 😭😭😭 .
Hereby introducing my very first OC as celebration!! Setsuki is inspired by my love for visual kei. I love their glamorous make-up and over-the-top fashion! 😂 I imagined Setsuki as someone who prioritize freedom over anything else. He is confident, flamboyant and loves attention. He is everything I'm not. I guess I created him as a form of mental escape.
I picked a stable, non art related office job, in accordance to everyone's wishes. Because, well, societal pressure. I don't regret it, I know I fear instability. But that small childish part of me never stopped yearning for freedom. The freedom to pursue what I really want.
Haha I know not everyone can accept men with red lipstick, but that's exactly the point. I draw to express, not impress. Setsuki doesn't care if you like him, he likes him :) I portrayed that with the tattoo on his ringless ring finger. It's a combination of moon and snow (his name 雪月❄🌙). He will never be bound by anything, he will always follow his heart 💙
