God Save the Queen by littlebabyshoes God Save the Queen by littlebabyshoes
"... But the wicked feelings of desire and adoration brewing like fire suddenly ran cold in Elias's blood. The looming silhouette of his God among the flowers fell upon his heart and sword, and the prince's warm happiness now gave way to the shame and guilt of revealing such a disgusting self to His eyes."

My OC Prince Elias, also known as the "Flower Prince" for his delicate appearance and constitution. He's a gentle and beautiful youth whose general demeanor befits the title of 'queen' rather than 'prince'. Generally levelheaded and calm, although he'll easily lose composure when people forget he's a man.

Despite the fact that he hates being mistaken or treated as a woman, men make him weak in the knees. Prince Elias finds this part of himself shameful and utterly detestable, as he is a nobleman and a deeply religious man. By all appearances, he is a confident and self-assured youth, although he's constantly grappling between his duties, morality, and his identity.


shhh I know the shadow doesn't actually fall on his heart shhhh poetic license

Trying out more painterly stuff. I really like shadows (especially when there is more than one light source), but how do you get them to look right...? I'm thinking more contrast, but... hmmm... Maybe I'll do a 'draw this again' of this piece when I get better. =v=;;;

Okay. I need to go reply and work on stuff... <v<;;;

There's something about God Save the Queen by *littlebabyshoes that entrances me. The muted colours contrasting with the crimson red of the flowers and his hair make him even more beautiful while creating an ethereal atmosphere. ( Suggested by SavageFrog and Featured by rydi1689 )

I really like this piece especially because of the story. It resonates with my own life (sort of). My family is a conservative christian family, but I'm constantly struggling with various issues in the Bible, and I usually feel like I can't talk to others about it because I myself detest the parts of myself that question my faith. Keep up the good work, and congrats on the DD!! :)
