i actually loved the art work, i then read the description and i found something offensive and no its not the fact that she is gay.
but the name choice is provoking, if you practice islam and you happen to be gay that doesnt mean you drink or that you are okay with it, ironic right?

choosing the Name Khadija which is related to a religious character in Islam and deciding to change it to an alcoholic drink isnt very nice.

well, in the story line we've got so far she didn't choose her name, her drunk friend did... And it stuck xD
and no, she does not drink, and as much as I may disapprove of it, she still respects the rest of her god's teachings/orders..
such as being a humble woman in dressing and personality..

well if you want to get technical, people couldn't buy stuff from china since plenty of it will involve underpaid, starving workers and society disapproves of this.
Yet "made in china" is known and purchased around the globe.

The art is amazing, the religious vs homosexuality implication is ridiculous. Going to a different country doesn't change your way of life or your upbringing. She wouldn't be a lesbian for the sake of her religion, as the religion is more important.
So the characters back story is a slap in the face to those who are Muslim, but as insulting as it may be, the art is still very pretty.

And please don't try saying you get gay Christians to me either, that religion is in completely different grounds based on the fact that it's anal but not life threatening. You do get your extremists but they won't come after you with an axe (normally).

Still, the art itself is absolutely amazing, I'm very fond of your use of colour, incredibly pretty. The lighting is really well executed as well, even the backgrounds smokey colours, would love to know how you did it!

well, as much as I understand that many people will see those reasons you are giving, I believe in a progressive society that evolves thanks to tolerance, and will continue to do so.
This also meaning people learning to tolerate themselves.
still thanks for a still complementary comment~~~
