Pile On by RadenWA Pile On by RadenWA
A long overdue picture of :iconthxapproved:, of himself.

There are lots of influential friends in my life that I should draw, but I just happen to do him for now, especially since he already took a bunch of his time and made me this without me even asking, [link] as well as unwaveringly never stop to motivate me against my powerful self-doubt.

Also he owns that super rad boots for real. It's probably what motivated me to finish this the most.

I really wish I can draw more real people if only it doesn't take me so much procrastination damn long to finish one.

I was supposed to draw him a real badass and technically detailed camera thingy as well, but I suck so I just drew it as a sihouette.

Well here it is anyways, hope people like it.
Illustration done rightfully by *RadenWA, for ~thxapproved, whatever he intends to use this picture for.

Those look like New Rock boots, I have wanted a pair for ages but given how few opportunities I have to wear current boots I have already, it may be an expense I can wait for ^^;

Yep, it is, without doubt is New Rocks. And I know how that feels man. I may wear boots all over the place but I really can't imagine me wearing Newrocks for my casual activities.....I wish I were a hardcore rock fan but I'm actually not ^^;

What kinda boots do you currently have though? :D

I'm kinda the same. As far as looks go I want to stand out, even if that means looking like a rockstar just gotten off-stage. But my downfall is lacking the personality to match. I'm quite a reserved personality, not very on-edge or attention-demanding, and never would fake being able to play an electric guitar like some douchebag who claims they can just to impress people :lmao: I just happen to really like a lot of clothing of the genre. Lots of leather, studs, belts etc :toocool:

The "biggest" boots I have are a pair of Demonia's. These ones to be exact [link] When it comes to details I prefer belt buckles over laces, so they were perfect for me (and looked RPG-like which I also liked :D) But I'd be killed if I wore them locally. My town is full of douchebags and rednecks. Another pair that I'm more likely to get away with in public are these [link] Which I probably like a little more as they're real leather and can be worn with more stuff. Though believe it or not - the taller boots are much more comfortable :O

:highfive:

I guess the only place where we can wear those things and still feel normal is those bars where everyone wears leather because they like it too. Those kind of bars.

Not that I've ever went to one....:shrug:

Golly! I saw people wearing those ones too cosplay Vash. I got Demonia too but they're shorter, belt-buckle instead of cool metal plates like those. And the second boots? I HAVE always wanted that one!! Mainly because my Lucario gijinak WEARS those: [link]

So whereabouts in Australia do you live? :D

Leather bars I think used to be a pretty common thing (well, as common as gay subcultures go) as I read about e'm online. But in recent decades apparently they died down in numbers. Seems like it was perhaps a generational thing, or maybe just as much people are into it today as then, only now there's no need for bars thanks to online services. But I haven't tried either one - it scares me as much as it intrigues me, like an approaching storm :laughing:

As much as tall boots are more fun to wear, I resist the urge to buy another, knowing how little I get to wear what I got. medium-length and shorter boots definitely have more use-potential. Though if I was loaded enough for it not to matter I'm sure I'd have quite a collection anyway, even if just to look at e'm :lol: Cool drawing too, in the time before I paid attention to boots I'm sure I would have seen something like "Man I'd like to have those shoes, if only they were real" :dummy:

Anyway I'm near Sydney. Though in one of it's crappier, western sub-cities where I'm probably the only non-gothic male who even owns said boots :lol:

There is still a few in Melbourne, yet I still never went there because of my reclusiveness. But yeah, internet helps a lot now. I can even link you one of those sites which I find is really good and respectful. And apparently, there are more Sydney members in that site than Melbourne! I probably should go visit that city sometimes....

Tall boots really are fun...I really wish I could wear them more. I actually own ONE knee-high, but the sole fell apart apparently because I never wear it enough. Apparently the only way to wear tall boots and not feel awkward is by riding motorcycles. Which I don't....

That's why I start to kind of draw shoes and boots that ARE real, so at least when I fantasize about it, I can say "I just need to have enough money and I can actually buy 'em". Just like that Lucario boots!

Agh, I really want to visit Sydney. Do you go to other cities for cons and such?

Geez, guys with similar taste like us should get together and be happy.

Yes I'm reclusive too. I mean - sure, I want some action - what young guy doesn't? ;p But I just have too much self-respect (and fear) to walk into and environment where that will likeley end up happening within 20 minutes :ohnoes: If I'm traditional in just one way - it's that I gotta know someone for a while first, and be sure they aren't fooling around elsewhere. The leather fetish subculture is filled with such promiscuous activities, it's easy to forget there's ones much more reserved like us for example, we don't stand out as much :paranoid:

I do want to ride a motorcyle, not just because of what I get to wear but because I think they're badass too and they grab my attention more than cars. Though I'm still on the fence with this, they are more dangerous and I can barely even drive a car properly :oops:

Nah, I don't travel much. Still lack the confidence and independence to do so. I tend to not like going anywhere unless I fully know what I'm getting myself into. Great way to meet people :rofl:

Well, I heard from my friend who went there that it really depends on you-if you don't want it then they won't force themself in....that only happen in yaois =P It really depends if you really found someone that you can have chemistry with.

But yeah, for the more reclusive ones, joining that site might be a better choice. You can, like,say no.

Yep. Didn't help that my parents never let me to learn motorcycle because they're dangerous.

Haha, that's why online sites like this is the best- you know exactly what kinda guy you're talking with and they also know what you're all about and thus we have good chats. I mean, how many guys who are into both leather and drawing anime guys?

Definitely. Too bad the boot brand doesn't make gloves, because that would be the kind of badass stuff they'd end up with.

Best way to begin 2013... with gorgeous art.

And thats something diferent from the way you use to color. Are you trying a new color style?
