I felt like redrawing this in a completely different style and I think it turned out really good.

Absolutely love it. I adore your art style, there is so much confidence in this piece. I did one similar, but without the correction there so bold. I feel like my work felt defeated, where as yours shows so much strength. I may need to re-do my piece of work now, with yours in mind, if that would be all right with you?

Actually the funny thing is my original version of this didn't show as much confidence. It has a more "I just don't want to deal with correcting you guys all the time" Kind of look to it.
And yeah this one I was much more confident and happy with it.
And of course you may do that. By all means use what inspires you. :D

I love this! I identify as androgynous which is kinda okay, I have an androgynous face and small boobs, buuuuut I have massive ass hips @___@ they're 45 inches around and make me look too curved for my liking.

Could I ask you a question? I don't like being identified by female pronouns, but I don't know any androgynous ones, do you?

oh god I know how you feel.
I have D size boobs and decent size hips so it's a major pain to hide them. What you can do for your hips is get binding shorts. They aren't that bad and they helped with my hips and thighs a fair bit.

As for the Neautral Pronouns. Maybe this little chart can help: i544.photobucket.com/albums/hh...

Hope that helps.

finally someone gets it. I have a hard time getting anyone to call me by the proper prounouns, maybe because people still have a hard time accepting that gender neutral is an actual gender identity. Nonetheless, my only friends who actually get it right are the ones who are dating an ftm. the sad thing about it is that my friends who live across the bay from me are more accepting than the ones i have in my hometown. And even less accepting are my parents. mostly my mother. Although she always says that she'll accept me no matter what, if i'm gay, staight, bisexual, asexual, just-plain-sexual, male, female, whatever, when i actually try to bring it up, she gives me this condescending look, as though i'm not qualified to identify myself, and walks off muttering something along the lines of "just a phase". well this "just a phase" has been going on since i became self-aware.

i fucking hate her. i love her, and i know she means well, but she doesn't begin to realise just how much her attitude has slowly fucked me up over the years.

I understand how that is. I have a lot of friends who aren't accepting of it and have a hard time understanding.

As for along the lines of your mother. I would suggest sitting her down at the table or something and straight up telling her everything you feel. How much it hurts for her to say just a phase. Because sometimes you have to be straight up with people before they will understand and or accept anything you say.
Yes it may be scary, Yes there may be tears or anger. But sometimes you have to push passed those things if you want to be truly happy with life.

I understand... I spent practiacally all year trying to get people to call me by the right pronouns and my stupid tutor made the mistake a few weeks ago of calling me by my birth name. What really grated was this girl who looks like a guy and gets insulted when someone accidently calls her a boy had the NERVE to not only use my birth name but also EMPHASIZE it to tease me... And then they wondered why I was anti-social the rest of the day...

I've been reading a few of your comments below (don't mind me, I do that) and believe you me I have the same problem... Not to mention my mother STILL won't let me cut my hair... The only thing I have going for me is that my nickname happens to be the first letter of my real (Not birth) name...

Oh god it is the worst feeling when it's friends and family. 
As for people who emphasize and pull shit like that when they know better. Just turn around and call them on it. Honestly don't let people act like pricks to you over it. Gotta stand up when they pull shit like that.

Yeah I was lucky with the name thing since Bro is literally in my name so people are just more willing to call me that in the end. And yeah the not being able to cut your hair makes it a lot harder to pass as well. I used to have really long hair that I wasn't allowed to cut and it was the worse.

Completely...
I don't think she realized that it was even a big thing (My class is a little slow in the head, and every time I try to stick up for anything (not just gender issues, but also selfishness and stalker behaviour too, amongst other things) I always get "S/He didn't understand" so I just fume silently instead now)
But I've decided that if people (outside my family - semi-strict Christian family on dad's side, (Eg - "Don't watch 'The Lion, The Witch And The Wardrobe' because witches are of the Devil" Despite the story being about Jesus' reserection) and a few on mom's, so mom won't let me talk to them about it, and the two times I did, I got laughed at) start calling me by the wrong name/gender, that's what I'll do back to them. Subtle, just as annoying to them, and no worse than what they do.

I've managed to luckilly get my hair to shoulder length - and in a year or two I might just get it shorter... (Doubt it, but a guy can dream right)
I'm also lucky enough to have a bestie who completely understands (He came out not too long ago on here - but his family will all but lock him up and/or dissown him if he so much as mentions that he's seen a gay pairing (severely Christian and kinda old-fashioned) and so help him if he tells his grandmother that he wants to work when he gets older, she'll tell him not to be stupid and "be a stay at home mom" so he's not coming out to them any time soon) so we can talk about different problems/ideas/etc we have.

Oh...I know that feeling. It's absolutely awful. Especially when it's friends that know that do it.

Great drawing. I like the way the black, white, and blue tones work to make the feeling of the piece negative.

This is how I feel every day I have to go out e ___e;
I have a few friends who call me the correct pronouns every time and even correct others when they call me a she, but I also have this one friend who always makes it a point to call me a girl
He says he supports me but
he's also told me he'll always call me a girl

But man I feel ya on this I totes feel ya.

MagicBroJohnson Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yeah I have the same problem.
Most of my friends end up correcting themselves when they realized they messed up and they also correct each other.
My main problem is people outside of my social group still. Since I am unlucky with the fact that I have a D cup chest and it's so fucking hard to hide so people will always assume I am a girl/Tomboy and call me by female pronouns.
And of course one dude who harassed me for 8 hours straight at a party I was bartending saying I am a girl and what happened to the woman he fell in love with (Note: this guy goes to my school and I barely know him) and kept following me and getting angry cause I wasn't what he thought I was.

Yeah a lot of people don't understand but that's why people need to be educated on the matter. Because it's a big part of society that feels like it doesn't get as much notice or educated on enough.

Passing sucks (I identify as androgynous, so aaaaahahahahahaaa...). XP But someone once told me that if you're confident enough in you're identity, you'll get there eventually.

I do love this concept. Simple, elegant, and well-executed. You're character is nicely balanced too. :giggle: Love how bright the eyes are in contrast with the monochrome blues-and-grays.

Yeah I understand how it is.
Passing can be really hard and it's hard hiding a D cup chest though haha. That is the main problem with being Trans. When you have parts that are super hard to hide in general.

This piece I really wanted to redraw since the first day I did it(The more colorful version in the different style) And this felt more right.
