You are the flower, I'm the rain by Shattered-Earth You are the flower, I'm the rain by Shattered-Earth
You are the air that I breathe
Without you I am incomplete
You are the only one for me





Original print for Otakon inspired by the song Redline Day From the anime movie Redline. It was based on this sketch which was for a sketch a day thing, omg so many seperate origins XD! I kind of like the sketch better though /sob

I put this on critique requested, but there are mistakes/intentional distortions that I want to point out too (so there's no need to repeat them unless you disagree lol). The wings first of all, are not accurate to life at all. The pose was already messed up from the sketch so i just went all out for stupid-anime wing anatomy. The dress I didn't know how to do right :/ It was originally going to be just a flower type dress, but then i thought it would be cool to make it look like dirty brass, but i just didn't do a very good job polishing it up. The black hair girl's right arm is also weird too.. just.. weird <_<.. hell i'm sure all the arms are weird! In retrospect i should have removed the white hair girl's boob completely too LOL, spines don't work that way >_> <_< (geez maybe i should edit this before final prints eh LOL)

Purchasable as as a print from here: [link]

Revise. Like you said the pose/stupid-anime wing anatomy just looks strange. It almost looks as if the wings are stuffed into the picture, seems "forced". The Dark haired girls "dress" looks like it's made of dirty feathers instead of brass. If you're going to go for the brass look make it shine (even dirty brass shines) and don't round it. The boob which is hardly noticeable works in favor of the piece. Unless she's a A cup she'll have something hanging down, it's just natural gravity. I'm definitely in support of revision before anything is final. Good piece though. I like where it's going, but I do hope you continue on it and make changes.
What do you think?

Fantastic piece. The colors are gorgeous, how they emerge into warm from cool, focusing our attention on the subject, and you've worked in just the right amount of subtle texture. The anatomy looks fine to me, particularly the gestures of the hands and the back of the upper figure (black-hair's right arm looks good to me, btw). The negative shapes created by the arms also do some great things for the image. The only thing about the wings that bugs me is that they do seem a bit stuffed into the frame, but I understand the compositional choice you made there, to frame the action. I think you could have made them curve more, out then back in, and achieved the same result with a bit more elegance. But that's really the only minor issue I see in an otherwise wonderful piece.
