Dark Only To Shine by AnimeInMyPocket Dark Only To Shine by AnimeInMyPocket
~I feel numb most of the time,
       The lower I get the higher I'll climb,
            And I will wonder why,
                I got dark only to shine,
                    Looking for the golden light,
                        Oh, it's a reasonable sacrifice,
                             Burn, burn, burn bright,~

~"I hope I'm there, catching some of the light coming off you that day."~

~I figured out the solution to creating titles - just pick a song at random from your I-tunes! >3<~
~In all seriousness, it's hard to find a song as great as I'm Still Here when it comes to Treasure Planet (I even wrote it in the stars :V), but I didn't want to use it because of that. Especially since I'm 80% sure I've seen a picture similar to this before on here - but it wasn't in my favourites so??? I love Marina and the Diamonds and I was playing the album as I was painting this and when Numb came on I thought it was perfect - look it even fits in with a quote!!~
~The main reason I wanted to do this piece was to explore lighting a little bit - though maybe lighting in space was a bit too large a jump...I had the idea of shading with the purples and blues and adding them in to the other colours to create the lighting. Maybe it worked? It would be nice if you told me it worked. I'm going to try the 30 day background challenge (but maybe spread out a bit - I don't have time to draw everyday!) and look more at how to create lighting and atmosphere there. I can't really do digital art - so I feel like I have to find out how to do it traditionally all by myself! o0o~
~Anyway, Treasure Planet was always one of my favourite movies as a kid, and it means a lot to my friend, so I hope I did it justice! ouo~
~Done with watercolour (in tubes), a little bit of ink (just to outline Jim when I was sketching it), and a little bit of tipex (because I realised I forgot some things just as soon as I'd put my paint away).~
~More watercolour art that has a ship in:… ~
~More Disney art:… ~
