Rain drops and silence
The biggest of feelings are expressed in silence, in total stillness...
Let the rain wash away, the pain of yesterday.

I'm dead

I recently came back from two weeks of traveling, majority of which I spent in Vienna. On one of my last days there, I went to see Zootopia again after a long time. That day was rainy, and I would walk around with my umbrella, looking at some of my favorite places there before I'd have to leave again. It's some of that feeling that I wanted to put into this drawing, it's hard to put into words. 
Needless to say, I really got into the movie again, and loved to see it in German language, as learning to speak it is one of my biggest dreams. :3

Art rant for those who want to read:
This was pretty experimental, I don't usually draw with this technique. (Painting under and then on the lineart.) However, I have to finally slap myself and realize it's okay not to draw the same way all the time and try to have a certain look - something like that can't be forced, and I honestly have no idea what my preferred style is yet. Especially with something like drawing, setting up too many molds to fit into is only going to be detrimental in the long run, even if you might think you're helping yourself progress that way. Better to just draw, keep drawing no matter how stupid it feels sometimes. In the end, that's the only way to get better at it and widen your comfort zone. After almost 5 months of on and off art block, I can back this up. 

Anyone with similar realizations and experiences?

Thank you so much for all support and feedback. It means so much to me.
I wish you all a great day.
