I... what? I don't get what astrological sign Cancer has to do with... colour XD But, ah well. Nice font.

also, is there suppose to be a little line between 'o' and 'u' ? It looks like a mistake, but it could have been purposeful '3',

Thanks! If i could remember what font it was, i'd tell you... but i forgot. :iconotlplz: Fail. :XD:

As for the zodiac sign, that's because the whole piece is actually a reference to the webcomic Homestuck, in which some of the characters are represented by signs of the zodiac... :)

No... the line is another fail, i'm afraid. I guess i'm pretty good at those... :XD:

where exactly do people get these "plz" stamps? I don't know how to use them, and I feel like an idiot that I don't

forty-two-point-five Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012  Professional General Artist
It's okay, it took me forever to figure them out too... :XD:

They're actually just "blank" accounts, so to put one in a comment, all you do is the same thing you would to link someone's icon in a comment, so :icon 99colourful : (but without the spaces, obviously :XD:) makes :icon99colourful:. So for the one i used above, it would be :icon otl plz : (without the spaces). As for where to find them, i tend to just come up with them by accident (see someone use them, click on the icon, and go to the page to find out what the name is). There might be some sort of database of them somewhere, but if there is, i'm not sure where. :/

It's a homestuck reference. It's a webcomic, which is pretty cool. If you want, you can check it out here: [link]
If you have a lot (a lot) of free time, I seriously recommend it.

I'm in the middle of it right now (somewhere close to three-quarters finished), and I'm liking it, but I guess not everyone has the same tastes.

What does that even mean? That it doesn't matter the color of the person? That it doesn't matter if you prefer red over green?
Reply
:iconforty-two-point-five:
forty-two-point-five Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2012  Professional General Artist
I guess it could mean either, although i was thinking more of the colour of the person, since favourite colours aren't too big of an issue once you get past kindergarten... :giggle:

It's a reference to Homestuck. On this planet called Alternia, everyone is segregated based on blood color, with those lower on the spectrum being oppressed by those higher on the spectrum. The Signless, whose symbol is that black sideways 69-looking thing, tried to end this blood-based racism (blood-ism?) but ended up being killed by one of the "highbloods."

It's a webcomic on MSPaintAdventures.com. It starts out really slow, so a lot of the people like you who found out about it through trolls/alternia wonder whether they're in the right place.

There is a tiny little line going from the top of the O to the U and it is bugging the crap out of me.

And also colour totally matters. I think if you were going for a race comment you'd need to confine yourself to applicable colours. (I have yet to see an aqua-blue coloured person...)

I know, i didn't notice that until after i uploaded it here, so i guess i'd better take care of it now... OTL I hate it when stuff like that happens! :XD: Thanks for pointing it out, though!

Yeah, i see what you mean, and i have received that critique on this piece before, but i think the problem is that, since this piece has gotten (weirdly and unexpectedly) popular, a lot of people (such as yourself, i suspect) are seeing it without knowing the context and backstory. See, it's actually meant as a reference to the webcomic, Homestuck, in which some of the characters are aliens whose society is divided into castes based on blood colour (being aliens, of course, they all have weird-coloured blood), and that's where the colour choices came from. It's not even REALLY a commentary on human racism, so much as a work of fan-art that i hoped would also generate thoughts about the foolishness of prejudice. So long story short, i never really expected this to even be seen by anyone who wasn't familiar with that backstory. Guess i should maybe add an explanation in the artist's comments now, huh?

Sorry for the crazy-long explanation... :iconotlplz:
