psst, if you download, it'll be bigger than the fullview.


I um.

...BACKGROUND LOOK!

This was really fun to draw. I wanted it to look really watercolor-y, kind of like Yoshitobe Abe's (Lain, Haibane Renmei) art. ^_^;; I think it kind of worked.

I honestly think we're all going to kill ourselves and/or everything else in the next 1,000 years. -_-;; And then all that's going to be left of us is some old factories and buildings, that'll be overgrown with tons of plants and things, because we won't have been around to go and kill everything off.


For the hell of it, that's a boy.

Fantastic. The message and outlook of this drawing is really deep. Like God gave the signal to press the Reset button on a failed project, and those people who survived were the children left to rebuild it. Though full of depressing colors, the girls eyes, hair and skin are filled with color to contrast the depressing ones. Even though she lives in a world of great suffering, there is alot of Joy and Hope in her eyes. Again, work on the hands more, you've got the anatomy down ok, it just needs a little more practice. Everything else about the girl is ok. Overall, wonderful coloring strategy, in the world surrounding the viewer, playing with this girl, it all seems like a dream.

it's a boy!!! XDDD But I have gender-differentiating issues, so it's good @ w @;;; And yes...the hands in this one are really frighteningly thin, but I had redrawn them so many times, I just gave up in the end. > . >;

And yeah, religion, mainly christianity, interests me a lot. Some of their values just seem so shallow and not at all thought through... yet so many people believe in such things, anyway. So a lot of things I think of have some kind of Christian themes.

Thank you very much, again! You give such nice critiques. @ . @

Like I said, all dem'all look alike!

It's nice to question beliefs, it's what makes us human in the rights we have, because we have the right to believe whatever we like. But getting lost within it (Religion) can drive a person mad, just ask the Pope. ^_~

I like the lighting! Very nice background. However, if the person is standing with their back against a light window, wouldn't the shading be different?

*pokes* couldnt stay away from happy pics I KNEW IT, this is pretty cool i see no mistakes in here i can pin point but something does bug me personally, nothing u have to change just like something i would have done different, and that is, as u did the fence in the right like solid, i would tried to also do the same for the chair and the diagonal metal bar on the left, cuz leaving vice versa, so it all looks kinda like the same, cuz sometimes it can appear to me as if the left side was still not completed, oh and i just noticed, her left side arm is a lil too small, but after that its all good ^.^ nice job

:iconakurosu:
Akurosu Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2007
LOL LOL XD THIS ISN'T HAPPY!

boy, it's a boy. XD AND I NAMED HIM JULIET HAHA.

The fence is solid because I used a line tool to draw it, whereas I actually paint-painted the chair and the bar. So it appears more solid. Thank you for your input, though. ^^

ohhhhhhh i c i c then u could have made the other with the line tool too or also like do everything as u have it but with the line tool make like a border for both the chair and the bar that way they would look like more belonging to the pic

:iconakurosu:
Akurosu Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2007
Yes. So by making lines, it would look even less like the rest of the picture, because the outline would be so clearly defined, as where everything else looks quite vague and watercolor-y.

Akurosu Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2007
nah. XD; I could've, but it'd have been less fun for me. :3 I like to draw things as much as I can before having to use a tool to make them for me.
