Fly With Us

i worked on this for a while before i jetted off to Rome( which was fantastic )

ive moved on a bit now and no longer have the will to fully complete it, its at the stage where i spend hours cleaning it up and its just no fun:( (Sad)

anyway the sky in the background is my pride and joy...never drawn a sky before so it fun was trying to figure out how i should go about it.

i really didnt want to leave this image on my hard drive for no one to see.

please understand that this is as finished as its going to get.

depending on how you look at the image its either magical or tragic...but thats up to you to decide

hope you still like it:) (Smile)

I haven't seen this picture for something like 4 years I think. 

I feel like the girl in the picture so badly.
I even wrote a story about it once.

I just wanted to thank you for making this.
cause thanks to you, I can look on it sometimes, and be reminded of who I am. :)

the sky is really beautiful! like you used to paint it all your life ;) really! I think it is magical AND tragic at the same time (I see both in it). I like it very much!

Looks very great! How do you draw those pictures? With a PC and Photoshop, or do you draw it on a paper?

Very cool but tablet is not traditional but digital medium. I suggest you change category for this one:) Other than that the pic itself is really good piece of art, your skills are really impressive.:) Keep up the good work and watch out for categories! :)

My goodness... I was thinking of a dream I had the other night, figured I'd try using the deviantart search to find a picture that reminds me of it. I didn't expect to find such a good match right on the 2nd picture displayed. This is very much like the dream I had

Oh that looks like Japan. Oh, how I miss Japan... MAN I wanna get a job back in Japan.

You're making me homesick!

Stop it!


Absolutely lovely work.
