I can't say much about this drawing without spoiling things for my novel, sorry..
The title was carefully chosen, as I feel it says a lot about the meanings within and around this drawing.


sorry for not revealing more about the meaning behind this..
But I hope you like it anyways :aww:

The quote is by Flyleaf, from the song "There for you", which was the song that inspired this particular drawing. :meow:
Listen to the song here --> [link] (this youtube video was the one with the best audio quality).


The quote is supposed to be something that Spike thinks.
Or at least something very similar.
He's starting to realize he hasn't been a very good friend to Sam, and that hurts..



psst... anyone recognize the piece of paper he's holding? ;)





I decided to upload this in it's sketchy version. I could've put a lot of effort in making it look better, but somehow I feel this version is sort of clearer in its meaning, and that the rough feel sort of fits it.
What do you think? o.o

something I've been working on this evening. Spent a good few hours on this :B But I kinda like how it came out :)

This drawing is showing some of Spike's fears. That skull-thingy at the top there symbolizes death, and then there's his abusive uncle whom I suppose most of you will recognize by now, and at the bottom there's Spike and some hands grabbing him which is supposed to symbolize his fear of being touched. I wanted to add more things, but I just couldn't decide, plus there really wasn't much room left XD

I hope you guys like this :aww:

Oh, and I was inspired by this cool song: [link]

I really do suck at titles :P
but anyways... I drew this today. It was gonna be a speedpaint, but the program I used wouldn't let me record for more than 10 minutes, to that was crap... :| Instead, I finished it on livestream. Ended up fiddling too much with the colors, but I hope I managed to make it look somewhat good after all ^^;

I bought myself a set of watercolor paint (in tubes), and just sort of played around with them on paper.
The first attempt was just blending colors and doodling around. This is the second attempt I did.
I haven't worked with watercolors in years, and as I remember I used to dislike watercolors... But now, I can honestly say I love them! I'll definitely use them more often :)

finally done with this one! :faint:
I've did the sketch yesterday, and did the lineart and coloring on Livestream today. Spent almost 4 hours on Livestream! Plus the two hours to make the sketch, so all in all, this is the most time consuming drawing I've made in ages! :XD:
But it was fun, and I hope all the time and effort was worth it ^^;

I hope you like this :aww:

I suck at titles...
So, the idea for this was that Spike wants to get rid of his black wings, wishing for white ones instead, so he's ripping out the black feathers which somehow turns his wings white.
Logic.
:B


It seemed like a good idea at the time, but now I'm not sure XD
I actually liked the sketch far more than the finished result.. I'll upload the sketch to my scraps and link it here soon.

I felt inspired today when I looked through =fighter-jet 's gallery. I loved how he/she (sorry, I don't know) used grains and textures and stuff on some of his/her drawing, plus the gray/sepia ish tones. I just wanted to try something similar.. ^^;

I might have overdone it though :B


The quote is from the song "Nutshell" by Alice In Chains. I wanted to use the "people cry because they've been strong for too long" thingy, but it just felt too cheesy..
But the quote from Nutshell was just perfect, in my opinion. It fits so much to the situation Spike is in when this scene takes place.


derp.

this idea came from someone on one of my Livestream sessions last year. I decided to finish it, because I thought it was such a cute idea :aww:
So this is Saunders and Terrance, playing with mentos and diet coke.
