Tears of Undine - Return to the Laitma

While doing the rough sketch for this piece, I was listening to 'Dream of the Shore Bordering' from the ChronoCross Soundtrack.
You should all download it NOW, at (To be found under the 'chrono' section, song number 07)

Along with the entire ChronoCross Soundtrack. Because I love it all. One of the best VideoGame soundtracks EVER.

Anyway. I was listening to the song on loop, and for some reason, I got so unexplicably SAD. I dunno why, it was just... the song was so sad... and it made my piece so sad too. I just love the melancholy music of Chronocross.
Later, inking and coloring and all, I couldn't gather up that sudden sadness anymore, and I'm not sure quite where it wandered off to.

But, anyways.
More messing around in photoshop with brightness. Therefore, the black areas look prettier now than they did in real life. However, I used a special (well, not really) silver colored pencil of mine (cheap I know) to color the 'wings', and I'd also dotted the sky.
But you can't see the stars at all, unless you tip the paper up just right. XD
So, therefore, there's the stars missing. You can't see them at all, here. Urf. :<

But, anyway, I hope you guys can get that melancholy feel of this piece, because I think that's quite a lot of why I liked this so much.

I'm back in the drawing groove~! Yah~!

Thank you all who comment~ <3

TheWolfyYou're right, this has a beautiful sad feeling. A peaceful sadness.

It's lovely.

I adore his long flowing hair and the swirlies floating around his lower half.

You should marry me. >:U

AngelusMortisGood use of colors and design. I guess I'm not used to seeing guys with hips wider than the ones I usually draw them with, but that's not the problem. The problem is with his right arm, which is probably too thick in comparison to the other one.

For some realism, you might want to practice defining the sides of the torso more.

That means end of productive flair on my NaNoWriMo piece.
That means, maybe, sometime, updates of that to keep you busy. ;)

But with the awesome stuff going on in Iris now (at least, according to you XD) it should keep me goin'. :3

Glad you liked it all, and thanks for the commentos~ Luv ya duckie~ <3
