Fanart: HarnessBruised!Draco(Draco, PG-13)  
I'm sure that many of my f-listers here have read Tom Felton's recent Twitter entries about his painstaking stunt work on filming the Room of Requirement scenes of Deathly Hallows movie. I can't tell definitively but I assume that he's been doing some wire stunts(flying or as such) and as far as I know those stunt harness is tight, constricting and painful for anyone because it has to be worn unnoticeably under the costume. Then, when wired, you must support your whole body weight by only a few points of the harness...

On his Twitter comment, Tom lamented as "bruising more and more in each take :(", "skins sore from the harness rubbing :(", and it broke my heart. I really wished I could use magic so I can remove the bruises from him and transfer it to his character Draco, so this fine young actor can do his work easier while we can appreciate Draco's abused body wholeheartedly. It's win-win, isn't it? Or, on this matter, I'd take anyone's bruise to torture Draco's body. *cough cough*

And so, here's something made out of my nasty thoughts into my first try of BDSM:

Now, speaking of BDSM kink... maybe I shouldn't write this, but this really, really broke my heart-- maybe for the very first time in H/D fandom.

Few days ago, I saw the banner of hd_holidaysand, with positive prospect, I checked its sign-up post and it literally knocked me off. Seriously-- I've never participated in anonymous gift-exchange comm, but-- it's supposed to be a "request post", not "kink meme", isn't it? Do you really have to be that picky to your Santa, when your Santa is just a human, or a fan-author/artist just like you are? I was well freaked out at this stage, but after reading through the those sign-up posts, it made me cry. Really.

There are plenty of writers and artists I adore, and they listed the squicks/things they'd hate to give/receive for the fest, and I found my faves, or rather myself, at every "squicks" entry. I mean, I LOVE mpreg, BDSM, dub-con/non-con, creature-fic or heavy crack as long as it's H/D, and while I don't usually read bloodplay, bestiality or watersports, I don't think it's my squick, I'd rather love to try a good fic with those theme(in fact I still remember one fantastic watersports doujinshi of Prince of Tennis genre). Furthermore, my art style is 100% influenced by manga/anime, and you can tell that girly/femmy Draco or Harry is yum-yum for me; I love cross-dressing and body fluids very much and I have no problem in drawing genderswitching, underage/chan, or incest. Oh well, as for the subject of art, I can make a fix indeed. But the art style? I've lived my life with this art style before I came into my fandom and now it's part of me. How I can change that?

I mean, I do understand that not everyone will like my art, and that's perfectly okay. It's just, I've been benefited from the works by those great writers and artists for long, but apparently I have no ability to make any art to satisfy their taste and to reward their contribution to the fandom. Now I'm so ashamed that I'll stop making gift arts(such as fic-arts or birthday-arts) for others. Maybe I shouldn't have done those at all.

Oh, of course I'll do my assignment for the fests which I've already signed up, and indeed I'll do my best within my ability!:-) Or maybe I'll sign up for other fests later, it's just I found my art is not suitable for the gift. Meanwhile I'll post more of my kinky-squicky pics in my journal, hopefully!>:-)

(oh, although I really want to ask the ones who mentioned 'watercolor' art for receiving gift-- what's wrong with dry media art? Or does the media used really matter to you that much??)

What?! No! Do not be discouraged by the nay-sayers! In fact, you should make more pretty artwork in order to turn them! Lol.

I love your art, and I know a lot of other people do, too. And I know a lot of people who like the "squicks" you mentioned. In fact, one of the most popular writers on LJ, enchanted_jae, has written about most of them as giftfics herself! So they're definitely in demand.

*squishes you* ^_^ Keep up the fantastic work!!!

Awwww! Thank you for your comment!!<333

> In fact, you should make more pretty artwork in order to turn them!

Now that I found this being very true...it was really hard to comprehend when the nay-sayers were actually my best favorite authors, but basically what I should do is to continue what I can do, after all. And now I also have to learn how not to take those too personal.*--*

*squishes back*

I love your art!

And don't be put off by the sign ups in hd_holidays, there are many, many people who like kink in fandom who really appreciate your work. Maybe they're not the ones who sign up for this type of fest. I know I haven't signed up and won't be.

Personally, I think gift exchanges are wank fodder these days. The recipients are asked to be extremely picky, and that can lead to too high expectations and entitlement issues I think... along with the authors not being able to do their best work because of the restrictions of the extremely detailed prompts. I am much happier to work with themes, as in the careers_fair fest.

So, anyway, continue to do your wonderful a rt and post them here in your journal and I will continue to tell you how much I love them. :) And bruised Draco is a fave of mine. ;)

Ooh... I'm just a lurker of that fest (cause I speak spanish and I'm not too confident in my english to go and write something) but what you said it's really sad. I mean, there's a lot of fest... if they want just a lot of porn, go and make another fest just for that. This fest is to celebrate christmas... don't take me as some naive, I love porn, but there is a lot of other days to go an make the porn you may want.

And for that about the kind of art they want to recieve... well... just hope you got luke... and don't go all downy, because your art is amazing and if they don't appreciate it, it's because they are blind *nods emphaticly*


PS: your pic of Tom all bruised is just so hot... I want to write some BSDM for so long time... hope I get some inspiration from it xD
YumeKutteIkt(YuKI): handsyumekutteikt on August 25th, 2009 06:42 pm (UTC)
Thank you!^^ Well, the toughest thing was not that I really wanted to do some kinky art for the fest but that the participants(most of whom I adore as a fangirl) expressly listed their squicks they hate and they REFUSE(capslock) to write, which I never imagined they would abominate. But then again, I shouldn't have taken them too seriously and personally. *facepalm*

Oh, and I'm so glad you like the art.^^ Feel free to show me your hot bondage story to me anytime!:-D

Awwwww, thank you!!♥ Oh hell, I can get down all too easily because I still can't be confident enough over my artwork. Yup, I got to get strong...

Oh no, *I'm* sorry for bothering you, and your comment from the participant's viewpoint really helped me to comprehend, as I haven't done any gift exchange either and all those every bit detailed listings utterly confused me as a novice.

Now I understand that detailed description of preference is necessary for the system, so really, never mind about my panicked remarks above.--;
Thank you again, and I'm wishing you'll make it through the lottery!:-)
Gabriela: h/d hbpgirlofavalon on August 21st, 2009 01:06 am (UTC)
Don't be discouraged. The only reason I haven't signed up yet is because I don't know if I'll be able to write. My muses are in vacations LOL.

I got pretty squicked by a friend there, by the way. Her requests have a lot of things I HATE. And I am with you, I love BDSM, mpreg and non-con/dub-con.

I loved the art ♥

Haha, glad to know that I'm not the only one suffered from the big reveal there!:-D

Oh well, it's the matter of personal taste and up to each person, really, so I shouldn't get shocked and panicked that much. Awww, now I feel so embarrassed.*><*

Please don't be discouraged. Your art is beautiful. And sometimes very funny. I love it.

Oh, at least I should become more confident about myself in terms of making funny(or rather, silly and nonsense) pics after all!^^;

Hi! I just happened by your post, and I wanted to give you some encouragement. I don't really know you (although I will be adding you to my flist after I post this :P )

I signed up early for hols, and when I went back to look at some of the other entries, I was way turned off by how negative a lot of them were. Oh, btw, I also don't like this, or this, or this, oh yeah and that too...not that I'm picky, because I'll love anything Right. Anything except the 100+ you've explicitly listed that you dislike.

I looked back at my dislikes. Scat and unhappy endings. And honestly, I could probably live with a well-developed story/art with an unhappy ending. Seriously, I would just be so thrilled to be participating in the fest, that whatever anyone wrote/drew for me would make my year.

So I said all of that to say this. Don't be discouraged! I love your art and I would hate for you to stop posting it because you think people may not enjoy it. There are plenty of us who do! :)

> and when I went back to look at some of the other entries, I was way turned off by how negative a lot of them were.

Haha, that's exactly I was then when I saw my fave authors/artists' post there.(it was okay reading through their likes but it was tough to comprehend that they had that many dislikes in the fandom!) But well, I got too much emotional then.*--*

Thank you again for encouraging me! Much love<333:-)
Alaanaalaana_fair on August 21st, 2009 05:08 am (UTC)
*squishes* You know how much I love you and your art, hon!

So, my opinion? And this is only my opinion and could be way off base, but I think with hd_hols, since it's a gift exchange and the mods match up the authors/artists with the giftee, sometimes it seems like it would be easier to make a good match when you have more details about what people will/won't write/draw... or what they prefer for this particular fest. That doesn't mean they HATE those things they list as squicks, necessarily, although sometimes it might, but I think sometimes it just means that's not what they want for this particular fest gift. So don't let it discourage you, hon! Look at the prompts for hd_fanart art fest. It might make you feel better. *hugs*

YumeKutteIkt(YuKI): h/d mineyumekutteikt on August 26th, 2009 02:41 am (UTC)
*squishes back* Aww, thank you!

And since I'm new to gift exchange fest whilst the hd_hols is now in fifth round, rather I should get used to the system, I understand. Maybe I'm too simple-minded so that I come to believe they hate it when they say they hate the specific squick or they REFUSE(capslock) to write, and when they list up every bit of their own preference while their specific prompts for the plot/story are treated as optional.(sorry I still haven't got the all the dynamics here.)

> Look at the prompts for hd_fanart art fest. It might make you feel better.

*g* Haha, but seriously, for me the prompts for hd_fanart are much easier to read, as they are written specifically for the art. IMO, many of the request posts for hd_hols are written unwittingly from writer's POV and so they can casually involve some technical matters(like how the character looks) in terms of the fanart which can be a great burden to an artist like me.

Although I have to confess, I haven't even started for hd_fanart art fest...aaaaaaaugh!!!^^; Oh please tell me I'm not the only one, my friends!(although I'm trying to finish it by the deadline, indeed indeed.)
E McGeemelusinahp on August 21st, 2009 07:25 am (UTC)

First, I love your art! This Draco pic, omg, *shivers* sooo delicious. I really hope you keep on with your kinky, awesome H/D art.

Second, I've been discussing this with some friends and I think a lot of people look for something very specific from hd_hols. It's not the place people list their favourite kinks. Many people want story/plot rather than kink from that specific fest.

Personally, I love kinky H/D, but I exclude a lot of my favourite kinks from my hd_hols requests because I'm more interested in plot for that particularly fest.

So don't lose heart! People still love kink.

Awww, thank you for informing this because that's the part I couldn't perceive when reading only those sign-up posts then. Apparently I was clueless about the gift-exchange fest...

Oh, thank you again and I'll look forward your work on the fest!<333
Amanuensis: brevisse snarryamanuensis1 on August 21st, 2009 01:26 pm (UTC)
I love your art, I love your style, I love your subjects, and so do a HELL of a lot of others. :D

It's true that when someone lists what they do not like it may be done neutrally but it still harshes the squee of those who do. I remember when I was first writing HP fanfic; I was getting a lovely little following of readers that made me so happy, and then I posted my first major mpreg story. I love mpreg; to me it's just one of my long list of yummy kinks. And I remember a number of people instantly said, "Oh, um, I might not read this. I don't like mpreg." And I was blinking, startled, thinking, "You don't like mpreg? But you guys are kinky! You like bdsm and non-con and bloodplay and breathplay and crossdressing and and and...?" I had no idea mpreg was actually disliked and despised by so many. It was a cruel wake-up. But I kept writing it anyway because it delighted me and it found its audience. So KEEP DRAWING WHAT YOU LIKE, BABY. &hearts
YumeKutteIkt(YuKI): glompyumekutteikt on August 26th, 2009 07:59 pm (UTC)
Awww! Thank you so much for your comment!!<333

Your experience really touched my heart, I can feel the confusion and heartbreak you had felt so vividly, and it made me think back about myself a lot. Now I see that I got to be strong like you!:-)

Thank you again for such precious advice!!<333
Jaeenchanted_jae on August 22nd, 2009 02:55 am (UTC)
Aaaaaaaack! *swats you* You are not to stop creating art. I can't tell you that you HAVE to make gift!art, but I can certainly tell you that you have a wonderful talent and that any gift you create is going to be cherished. So what if a lot of people don't like the same things you do? That doesn't mean you can't sign up for HDHols. The mods will match you with a proper recipient and see that your request goes to someone tough enough to handle it. I've seen plenty of "bruised" artwork, especially lately with the contributions of pink_mint. You keep on creating what you want, post warnings if necessary, and I can guarantee that plenty of people will "click" and be awed by your talent.
YumeKutteIkt(YuKI): h/d fluffyumekutteikt on August 26th, 2009 08:17 pm (UTC)
Awww, sorry for making you worried, now I'm feeling much better.
I admit, I'm so dense and simple-minded that I can(and maybe I will still) easily get confused when I see people openly listing particular kinks as their squicks there while many of those people have commented on your kinky fics as "hot" or "I love it". But anyway, I will continue to make the art of what I want to draw, that's for sure.:-)
Zebruizebrui on August 22nd, 2009 03:16 am (UTC)
Oh please continue drawing full steam on, your art is hot and adorable and funny. I love your Draco so much - manga or not, you always manage to tell so much by every single one of his expressions. If I were a participant in hd_hols (that is if I had any writing or drawing skills), I'd be delighted to have you as my giftie.

*pats harness!Draco* Harry will kiss it better!
YumeKutteIkt(YuKI): h/d mineyumekutteikt on August 26th, 2009 08:30 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much for your compliment!<333 It really motivated me finding someone who appreciate my humble art when I felt down.;_;
(though I admit that basically I just draw anything which came to my mind at the moment, so feel free to tell me when my arts got too far off the track!:-))
Jacquelinepink_mint on August 22nd, 2009 04:08 am (UTC)
First, about this art:

I just adore this! Draco looks hurt and abused and his expression says it all - such intense pain. I want to cuddle him tight! And I love the chibi!Harry and his comment, he really made the piece and made me laugh.

I totally thought of BDSM when I read those twitter posts from Tom (oh, Tom, you naughty thing with your "tired, hot and bothered"ness! ;D), so I'm very glad you did a picture inspired from it. Yes, yes, yes!!

Second, about you and your poor heartbreak ( :( !!!):

Please, please continue to do art. I think your artwork is wonderful.

You've seen my art, I'm not at all shy about body fluids and blood and pain and kinks. I don't like the boys muscular, either, I like them lithe. I'm working on a cross-dressing picture right now, and I'm a fan of watersports.

I know in my request I listed things that turned me off, but it's really just guidelines. Personally, I'd like to know as much as possible about the preferences of the person I'm making something for, so I know they'll like it and I don't accidentally do something they wouldn't enjoy.

Try not to take it too personally because I know many, many people enjoy the same things you do. I've seen quite a few requests at hd_hols with mpreg, as well as creature!fic, fluff, humor, etc. in their list of things they like. I know if you signed up the mods would find you someone who would be delighted with anything you did.

And continute to do fanart for authors/artists, seriously! Any author or artist would be crazy not to love anything you drew for them.

YumeKutteIkt(YuKI): Hiro Mizushima Manip3yumekutteikt on August 26th, 2009 09:00 pm (UTC)
*hugs back!!*
Awww, I'm so grateful for your comment as you're one of the best artists of hot, delicious art in the whole fandom! And yes, I took them too personal and emotional back then, as I was so confused seeing all those explicit lists of 'squicks I hate' by my goddesses there. Now I feel embarrassed.*--*

Thank you soooo much for your compliments, and good luck on the lottery for hd_holidays, I'm dying to see your work there!:-)

Oh and yes, Tom is such a bloody tease, hehe!^o^
hpstrangelove: HxD Tied - klainehpstrangelove on August 25th, 2009 10:04 pm (UTC)
I'll tell you what - you can draw kinky, bdsm, non-con chanish art for me all day long! My very first icon was of Harry tied to a bed with Draco looming over him!
