Ignorance

"Innocence is white, white is empty, empty without knowledge is ignorance, ignorance is...dangerous."

Just something i wrote back a couple years ago.

Experimenting new style...i was kinda trying to practice realism again, but turned out drawing this...OTL This is more of a color/shade study than anatomy. aha I wanted to keep it free, so the energy of the brush stroke is preserved.

Something about that canvas size is a little awkward...lol

yay~ I updated my icon using this pic, hope everyone still recognise me. lol

I think this is stunningly stunning...
under an innocent face, gorgeous dress and modest gesture of a rich looking girl lies so many good and poisonous secrets and questions waiting to be answered...

the texture and feel of this drawing can be hard and soft...romantic yet dangerous...

...contrasting colors of black and white, blue and red made every detail pop...

i don't know if this is just me but i thought the black figure looked like an entity whispering something to her (i'm not just quite sure if it was human or something)...it made it more interesting though

in short...this is simply amazing... <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/t/t…" width="40" height="18" alt=":tighthug:" title="Tight Hug"/>
i'm sorry for my poor English...i hope you understood what i was talking

The contrast between the front of her and the back is slight but noteworthy i like how the gray in front is lighter exploiting her innocence and ignorance. Perhaps a little bit darker than the gray used for the back to go with the black? It's very striking the contrast of the white dress with the blackness of the foils of her ignorance but i love the touch of black on her sleeves. Her eyes though blind i think add a touch of how being ignorant makes her head blind. Very well done thank you very much for your art.

I see that you don't get much critiques on your drawings as you request so I'll try to help (though your art is always flawless. /sobsmyartsuckscomparedtoyours)

Okay, to begin, I have to say this is very beautiful. I love that it's line less and it gives a abstract feeling. I love how you made a few feathers showing in the abstract part of this artwork and the flowers coming out of it makes it feel like, idk how to explain this but a secret garden. /shot

It's like she's holding a secret; the way she looks so innocent but then has black vines coming out of her back gives a great story. The pose you made her in goes well with everything! I love everything about this but (not to be mean but in my opinion) I'm unsure of which way her eye is directed. I'm not saying it's bad or anything, it's just that it makes her look sort of blind. omg sorry I'm horrible at this <img class="avatar" src="a.deviantart.net/avatars/s/o/s…" alt=":iconsoemotionalplz:" title="soemotionalplz" />

I think it's just me though. I'm sorry for my weird thing with the eyes or something idk. .____. Sorry though but everything is really beautiful and it gives a mysterious feeling.

Some stupid youtube user stole this picture and claimed to have drawn it!! Its so obvious that person didn't though!!
aiki-ame's avatar
hahah yes yes...i've already commented on that video...=w= but she's so ignorant of the copyright issue i won't even bother wasting my time on her...=.=;; (she sound pretty young too.)
starbrightluster's avatar
I see no wonder she can't even spell correctly... but theres a big argument on the comments section for the video though--> it looks like you have a fan :)
aiki-ame's avatar
hahaha i just checked again...the argument seem to have leveled up.. O_o;; i don't even understand who's on my side anymore. LOL but it was funny to read. =w=;

This is amazing and really gives off the same feeling as what you wrote about it. You conveyed it very well. I would say all the things I like about this piece, but suffice to say it would end up being everything. Somehow, it feels very perfect.
