What is true love?

True love, put in its utter extreme, is when you give an unwavering, wholehearted "YES!" to the question, "Would you lay down your life in defense of this person?"  It is the ability to care enough for someone (or something) that you would die for them... because they are worth dying for.

An expectant mother shows us what true love is when she chooses to have her baby, despite the pain, the discomfort, and the changes... in some cases, at the risk of her own life.  For nine months, she carries the baby in her womb, experiencing pain, discomfort, and myriads of changes (physical, mental, and environmental), especially when the baby leaves the womb.  When a man and a woman have a child, their lives are practically sacrificed in order to properly raise the child.  The mother continues to care for her baby because she knows that the child will be worth all the sacrifice and so much more...

A soldier shows us what true love is when he fights to protect his country and its ideals.  As the saying goes, "Freedom is not free," and the price of freedom cannot be paid for with money... but with lives.  The men and women of the military not only sacrifice their lives in defense of their loved ones, but they do so in defense of their country and its ideals.  They do this because their loved ones, their country and its ideals, are all worth protecting, and are worth dying to protect.  They do this, knowing their sacrifice (whether it's a sacrifice of time or of blood) will not be in vain, that it will contribute to a greater cause, and that it was all worth the effort...

The martyrs show us what true love is, when they are slaughtered by others for daring to believe that Jesus Christ is Lord.  In the Middle East, to this very day, Christians are being slaughtered, beheaded, even crucified... men, women, even children... solely on their beliefs.  We go back to the question, "Would you lay down your life in defense of this person?"  They die because they love Jesus... because they refuse to deny that they love Jesus... because they answered the question with an unwavering, wholehearted "YES!", because Jesus is worth dying for.  They would indeed lay down their lives in defense of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ Himself shows us what true love is, when He is nailed to the cross, to die for our sins, so that we could reach Heaven and be one with God.  He went out of His way... became human... experienced fear, hunger, thirst, pain, anger, sorrow... sweat blood... and died one of the most brutal and torturous deaths imaginable... just so that the gates would be opened for us.  Because we were worth dying for.  What do you suppose it means when a Creator dies for the sake of his Creation?

What is true love?  True love is sacrifice.  It's giving yourself wholly to your loved ones.

Who in your life has let you know how much they care about you?  Who in your life do you truly love?

Sigfried Maro
Artist | Hobbyist | Traditional Art
United States
--- ID is done by the great :iconsoartothesky:. Check her out!---

You may refer to me as Sigfried. Or Z.

I am a busy college student, avid daydreamer, and a proud and devout Catholic Christian. Of course I draw. :XD:

I love to see things in a different light... see things re-imagined. This is why I love reboots such as the new Star Trek movies and the Loonatics Unleashed cartoon, why I favor fictions about alternate realities, why I created
an alternate dimension to the Bakugan and Skullgirls universes, and why I like to draw other people's characters in a different fashion.

Feel free to look in my gallery... I dare ya.

Now that I feel like I'm drawing good enough, I'm doing art for others... here are the current states for such forms of requests, and their rules:

:iconrequestsclosed: Requests are uncolored, unless it's for a friend/respected artist, or if I feel like it (please don't ask me to color it in). Please, nothing pervy, or fetishy, too complicated, occult, or outright gross.

:iconpointcommissionsask: Same as above, except it can be colored and/or a bit more complicated. Ask me what you want, and we'll bargain! :D

Commissions will be around 100 :points:, more or less (depending on any reason I may give). DO NOT ASK FOR A DISCOUNT, because that is a sure-fire way that you will not receive one. Remember that 100 :points: = $1 US. You must pay me upfront (I can make rare exceptions, though...) and if I feel I cannot complete the picture for whatever reason, I will refund your points.

:icontradesopen: Same deal with the request.

And with all of the above, PLEASE make sure you give me things to work with for any OCs! Although I can take "text" descriptions, the drawing might not come out the way you want... so if you have a picture that can help, please show it to me, for the sake of accuracy!

Also remember that I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO DENY A REQUEST/ART TRADE/POINT COMMISSION FOR ANY REASON, AND I DO NOT NEED TO LIST SAID REASON.

Current Residence: The U.S. of A.!
Favorite genre of music: Most kinds of modern music (mainly metal)
Favorite photographer: Peter Parker XD
Favorite style of art: Anime, Twist-Ties
Favorite cartoon character: Got too many of them.

Hey Sigfried! Got a question about one of your characters, Inanna specifically. She has healing powers right? Well if that's so, then what are the chances of her bringing someone out of a coma? Is it possible or is it limited?
