I have no idea how, but I somehow came up with the idea for this while listening to Broken Social Scene :/

I'm quite fond of how this came out.

Done with watercolors and micron pen.



Completely forgot to put this here yesterday, but thank you :iconthe-other-nnbtk: and :iconkatmomma: for the DD ^_^

wait, what song by Broken Social Scene? (if any in specific)
Blue-Paper's avatar
lol hell if I remember. I did this over a year ago. I looked through the comments on here and FA to see if I could get any specifics, but all I could find was that I was listening to their self titled album. I'm gonna guess probably swimmers, 7/4, or fire eyed boy? maybe our faces split the coast in half :/

How did you get such a great Resolution for this page?

Did you use Greyscale?
Blue-Paper's avatar
Greyscale? what do you mean? I had used watercolors :/
smokey51's avatar
Sorry, I meant when you scanned the image
Blue-Paper's avatar
I didn't even scan it ._. the picture was too big for my scanner so I needed to photograph it.

LOL, I just read what they said about it for the DD. Eityher they read WAY too deeply into this, or I just prooved I can never be hoity toity. I mean, you said he's liek what, 12-13? Very battle hardened. More like someone played soldier.

But seriously. Congrats.

BUt I think I'll die if you get a fourth one.
Blue-Paper's avatar
yeah it seems like people aren't getting that he isn't actually a soldier ._. it kinda annoys me XDD I WAS just going for the idea that he was pretending to be a soldier. just something that would bring up memories of childhood :) nostalgia and whatnot.

I may post a journal about it because some people just seemed to flat out not get it XDDD
