Confession by darkpetals Confession by darkpetals
"Contre toute raison
Contre tous conseils
La vie me souffle
Des bêtises dans mon oreille
J'ai dit:
J'irai pas plus loin
Ici commence le vide
J'irai pas
Plus loin
J'avance trop vite"


Congratulations, you survived the KITSCH.
Don't ask me, why I drew this... (like always, it has something to do with procrastination, though).

Lineart for the action inside the panels took me around 10 hours, while the girls only took like 20 minutes... despite all the details.
First, I wanted to draw something completely without any text, but the empty spaces between the panels were annoying. :/

...and it's the most kitschy fanart I've drawn, ever.
WHY?!

PS: Okay, I'm probably too tired right now, but WHY IS THE PREVIEW IMAGE GONE?
I mean, there used to be a preview image option, where is it now? :/
Anyway.
It was supposed to be this image, and now I'm a little annoyed, that the joke is gone. DX
EDIT: Fixed that, thanks to :iconxenachan:! ^_^

PPS: I've tried to practise good shadowing and lightning (I mean, the way the shadows fall), so please, if you can, give me criticism on that. Thanks!

PPPS: Oh noez, Luna is a lefthander now. I should have noticed sooner. She isn't, is she?

Merci ! ^^ Je crains que je n'aie pas assez de temps pour faire une BD S/F (ou d'ailleurs, une autre BD fan), mais j'ai fait beaucoup de BDs avec mes personnages par le passé, et je voudrais le continuer à l'avenir ! :D

I was somewhat high when I was drawing this (because :iconesda: and I decided to go to Belgium, lol), that's why it turned out so sugary sweet and kitschy, I guess... X'D

Good luck!!
As far as I know, you could get them via "Torrents", if you know how to use them... but it's really hard (or rather impossible) to find them to download from a homepage or the like, because the editors really sue everybody because of the copyright infringement. ^^ ;;

Torrents? hum... i don't know what's... is it a program?

darkpetals Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2007
Actually, I'm quite clueless myself. ._.;; Torrent is a program, and you can download stuff with it from Torrent-Servers...
It is called "Fileharing". I don't know much about it, because with our university servers, filesharing is prohibited, and if we get caught, we get suspended from teh internet... >_>;;
But maybe you can look up "torrent" at Wikipedia, it's quite helpful. I'm sorry that I can't say much, but I really suck at that sort of thing! ^^;
I'll go look at it straightaway!

Es ist so süB, Ich mag am Liebsten Seccotine und Luna (ouarfpteuhpteuh)'s faces ! xD
I suck in Deutsch, I'm so so so sorry -_-;;
Shall I say the kitsch killed me? It's way too much for me ! xD

Aww, your German is good! :D (The only thing is that you don't capitalize"liebsten" in German ^^)
And everybody seems to like them best, lol. X'D
I know, I know, it's kind of too kitschy. X'DD But I felt like drawing kitsch that day!

And thank you very much for the fav! ^_^

And you're too kind : My German DOES suck ^^;

Yay!! :D As you can see, I've even managed to draw a kitschy fanart for HALLOWEEN! X'D But hey, I really want to draw some serious stuff... ;^; It's just... when I get home, I'm always so stressed, I need something kitschy and sugary and lighthearted... X'D
Yeah, she's so sneaky... and she reminds me of a female journalist I know personally. She looks and acts like her, it's just SCARY, trust me. X'DD
Hey, practice makes perfect! :3 <3 Also, it wasn't bad at all, honestly!
Though, if it makes you feel any better, my French does suck. D: I read books in French (not only slashfics... lol), and whenever I try to speak in French to somebody whose native language it is, they always say something like, "Let's talk in English!" ;_;
It always makes me feel like my French is so bad that no native speaker can bear it. X'D

So we've got the same problem ^^; When I've been to Germany, I tried my best to speak German... But the only things I could tell were "Ja" "Nein" "Danke" and "GrüB Gott" since I was in Bayern ^^; And the day I came back, my German teacher had us doing an exam, which I totally failed... I got worse in speaking German after my trip... I quickly need a psychotherapy ! -_-;;;
However, mind to tell me something in my oh-so-bioutifoul native language? :D

:icondarkpetals:
darkpetals Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2007
"Grüß Gott" are only said by Bavarians, and the rest of Germans likes to make fun of them... X'D
"Grüß Gott" means literally "Greet God", and when a Bavarian tells it to a German from another part of the country, they (including myself) love giving witty answers like, "Mach ich, wenn ich ihn sehe" ("I'll do that as soon as I meet him").
And MAN, is their accent hard to understand. -_-;; We went to Bavaria when I was in the 9th grade, and I could hardly understand them at all. So don't feel bad about having lost your German skills there! :D
But yeah, when I was in the 5th grade, I secretly went to France for 5 days!! <3 ("Secretly", because I was not allowed to just go on vacation during school days, I would have gotten suspended, if the school ever found out, lol.) And I had had French classes for half a year and tried to speak French, too, and people were SO nice to me! ;_; They even seemed to understand me... X'D
So yeah, don't hesitate to speak in your BEAUTIFUL language! :D
(You'd probably laugh for hours if you heard me speaking it though, lol.)

Now I'll impress you, because I was understood there and did understand them as well ! *brags brags* But I used to say basic stuff such as "can I please have some of this ?" or "may I use your bathroom?"... things I could read in my dictionnary, actually. That's true their accent is particularly hard for someone who's used to learn "Ruhr Deutsch", since it's the opposite of school-taught-german-you-poor-little-frenchies-have-to-learn-and-deal-with-your-whole-life and because they, I don't know, they just seem to make up words and expressions in order to lose you ! ... The point is the familly I've been into didn't even care about whether I understood them or not, leaving me into deep trouble with my dictionnary, knowing perfectly I couldn't find the darn word ! xD The worse part was the meeting with the Grandma and the Gramps... Maaaaaaaan was it awful ! "She doesn't speak much, does she?" "Noo, 'Ma, she's French" "Awww goddamn Frenchies, they suck in languages and are so cocky it makes me sick !" The granny was... typical? But even if I understood everything I couldn't tell anything because my accent was horrible. I could just eat my Knuggeln and look satisfied with it !
Awww and I learnt an other word too ! : Schlimm ! First word I heard when getting of the plane ! *dances happily*

Ah, that must have been pretty cool! ^^ But... I've always thought people in other countries would learn "Hochdeutsch", which is the standard German? o_Ó; Ruhrdeutsch is a dialect as well, just as... Niederdeutsch, and the other ones. ^^ ;; (I've forgot the rest of them. I used to be a German Studies student, but I dropped out because German culture wasn't THAT interesting and the studies were annoying. British Studies are so much more fun, yay!!)
OMG, I hate it when people say things like these!! -_-;; It's such a mean and racist thing to say in the first place (even though the prejuce and stupidity odf it made me laugh when I was reading it). If they were your guest family, they should have tried to make it better for you and make you feel comfortable and stuff... I know the French have a deep respect for their own language (the Germans merely see it as a 'tool', which pisses me off... no wonder nobody wants to read German newspapers, as they are shittily written, lol!), and I really like that, but it doesn't mean they don't respect other languages... Such things kind of piss me off. >_>;;

Thank you so much for your help, and also for the :+fav:! ^^ <3

Also thanks a lot for taking the time to point out this mistake to me... actually, I don't think the shadows look right in any single panel here... *sigh*
But ironically, it was the only one, where they looked more or less right to me. I have to take care of that in the future... ^^;

And I'll correct that!
It's the French version of a song by Wir sind Helden (a German band), to which I was listening while drawing this, and it's kind of hard to find their lyrics online so I noted from what I heard... my bad. *corrects*

Anyway, thanks a bunch! :D
