Protection and purity by Ti-Vennie Protection and purity by Ti-Vennie

I would like to be very clear about this drawing.

My drawing is called “Protection and Purity”, it’s not for nothing... I really would like that everyone who can see this picture, can see these two words inside.
The first word is quite obvious, and the second one is represented by a bit of nudity.

If I choose not to do clothes (it is not because it will be easier to do…) ,it is for showing purity, the total absence of falsity, lies, of masks that other people (maybe the closest one!) can wear. I think it is an image that everybody can understand.

It’s not just a hug under the moon … It’s a representation, a metaphor.

Deep inside of me, I wanted to immortalize something…
When there is pain and unfairness, when there is bad things done against you or against your image… Image used wildly especially in our days with internet, there will be always one true person to protect you, to help you, to comfort you.

I can’t begin to talk about all that I find unfair or corrupted about this little manga character, because I wouldn’t have enough time, and enough words, to be well understanden by those who will read me... I just want to tell that there can exist pure thoughts with a nude skin.

It is only a sample of my whole project: I can’t show the totality of my picture because I think there can be misunderstandings…

Finally... Inspiration and appeasement, I will be very happy if these feelings can be felt too.
(I don’t know if I was clear, but thank you, to everybody who read me ! :))

I love the meaning behind this pic so much. I only just started watching Shippuden, so I haven't seen much of Inoichi yet, but I can already say that I love your take on these two's relationship. Absolutely beautiful. :heart:

Well... O_O this is odd... LOL i totally understand what you were trying to say, i think.

There is always going to be your father to protect you, and well, this is an example, you did great, and all of this was just inspiration.

I understand the meaning of this, and, just wanted to tell you, that you did a great job.

is there any place available to see the entire pic instead of just the sample. I can understand why you didn't post it, but I really like the message you're representing with this picture, the idea that there is one other person to protect and comfort you, and between the two there are no deceptions, no masks, that everything is laid bare and still that other person is there. Its a very powerful message, one I cling to with my husband. I would love to see the picture in its entirety if possible.

Oh my gosh my dear, I am so touched by your words... If everyone was like you, I would not have this dilemma. Believe me, it is not that I don't want, it is that I fear it to be indisputably part of Internet (with tumblr etc...) and I don't know if it will be good. I fear to be banned from dA if an ill-intentioned person reports me with saying that it is an in...t picture.
I don't draw nude bodies perfectly (:blush:), but I don't think it will protect me if such event occured. I am so sorry...
