Arvilla The Tomboy by Vivyi Arvilla The Tomboy by Vivyi

Sometimes, she wondered why they would tease her for being unable to see the world like their eyes, living in a world where pink and green and purple all were meaningless, and the only colors she grew fond of, were black, gray and white. She learned to tolerate it, and push back, hiding her fears with an attitude - understanding that only those who did understand her, deserved to be her friends.


Trying to find my style in photoshop... so here's a lined work of Arvilla De'vio, one of the many cousins of Estelle. She's a bit of a tomboyish Lesbian, who loves feminine woman, and is a bit of a perfectionist. She's completely color-blind (meaning she can only see black and white), and far-sited, so she must wear glasses in order to see. To the contrary, she is a very strong fighter, and is very vulgar with her tongue. Her older sister Meyhra keeps her frequently in check, helping her manage her waredrobe so the duchess doesn't accidentally end up dressing in mis-matched colors. Arvilla is a bit of a goth - preferring to dress up in dark colors versus the lighthearted colors that Estelle or Meyhra can sometimes be found in. She's rather rebellious and sometimes pressured to wear dresses in order to please her family, but regardless- she will sometimes sneak off and wear outfits such as the one above. 

This was supposed to be a cellshading piece, but it turned into more of a soft-cell paintery piece xD I have no idea where my style's going to take me yet, but I can only hope it's a good direction! *crosses fingers*

Weak eyes. :o I wonder if they get in her way often.

Arvilla's face looks like she doubts everything she sees. :o Probably analyzes a lot.

Her hair shines as if it was a polished mug surface. :lol: No matter how rebellious, she obviously takes good care of her hair!

They really do :nod: They get in the way of a lot of things. They make her clumsy, and people sometimes mistake her as unintelligent because of her poor eye site. She's had to really pick up a strong attitude and prove her worth. She's also had to lie about her near-blindness to get into job positions because although she can't see well, it doesn't mean she's a hard worker. She's very talented, even if she's clumsy.

If she doubts - it is because she thinks other people are stupid for doubting her XD Honestly, she would make the most interesting protagonist XD

She really does! :D

Ahhhh thank you! She has her intelligent moments, although she can make silly mistakes sometimes and be a total perfectionist even in relationships xD

Yessssss She isss xDDD I've always pictured her to be tomboy, and I got the colorblind idea from my brother, who actually is colorblind xD Except he's a different type from her. ( Blue-green I believe, rather minor ) I've done a handful of research just out of curiosity. Black and white colorblind people exist too. It's very rare though.  xD Thank you <33 lol

It really is D: I guess that's why my brother never pursued art, even if he had the potential to be a great cartoonist. He struggled with seeing shades of blue, purple, and green. D: He always says that Estelle's dress looks brown. XD

I'm not sure if he'd want to >< He said he didn't have an interest in art. He does, however, have an interest in music <3

You're most welcome! <333 I think it sounds super interesting! Definitely quite different to what I'm used to from her XD But I think it really works, it suits her and it'll create some fun conflicts I think haha! It should make for an interesting change :D

Hehe I think so too ;P I sorta want to implement as scene with Estelle discovering that about her. Or maybe a oneshot. Dunno yet XD I still have to finish up the oneshot I'm currently writing :'D My editing skills are so rusty XD I also have to give feedback on someone's novel... so I'm handling a lot of things right now LMAO XDDD

Maybe I'll look back at some of my tutorials. XD They usually help me see what I need to look for. 

I won't do so, no worries! I have a lot I can take on, and I feel energized enough to do so ;)

I'm glad too! :la: I get more done that way... even when I'm super sleep deprived like today XD I went downtown on a bus for 2 hours straight with no sleep at all, and  went to the dentist. I feel like that's an accomplishment XD

I'm already quite fond of the character :) Nothing wrong with being Tom-boyish at all, and dressing in darker clothes makes her look gorgeous :D

After I'm done with this oneshot with Marcilyn and Estelle, I may get started on it. I can't promise though, but it might happen. ;) And I'm glad you're interested! It means so much to me :huggle:
