Never Leaving by DenzelAJackson Never Leaving by DenzelAJackson

I will always be here, for as long as I can manage. Creativity is just too special of a thing to ignore, no one should pass up the chance to mold their surroundings. The pleasure and intoxication of the creative process is alluring: manifesting an idea, putting in the work to fully-flesh it, then presenting it with hopes of finding agreeance in the belief of it being a grand addition to the world. This pursuit definitely has thorns that prick, sometimes you fall directly on your face, so you may need to take a breather, heal up, and get back to it. Perhaps you can just take the fall and keep pushing forward, the choice is yours. Take notice to your surroundings, how much of it was crafted by a person? With the same efforts you can add to it, as well.

Augh this is so beautiful

The hair looks so life-like, and the shading and lighting around the girl makes her really pop out. Her expression is spot on :love: Wonderful job!

Thank you very much, this may have been my favorite times drawing hair, the color to it  was so much fun. Thank you again! Encouragement never goes unappreciated.

Alright I got this one,

Her street name is Lil' ChaCha and she's in a gang called the Roman Numerals. Tiffany a.k.a Lil' ChaCha joined the Roman Numerals for protection from her ex-Boyfriend, Big D. The Roman Numerals weren't your average gang, up to no good. This particular group formed an underground Hip-Hop dance crew, lead by the best freestyle dancer of all time, The General.

Though Lil' ChaCha has some mad hip-hop skills, she'd has always been a country girl at heart. She spends her free time at a country nightclub called "Saddle Up" where she's mastered the, you guessed it: Country Cha Cha

One day her crew, along with their ruthless leader, follow ChaCha to Saddle Up where they witness her line dancing skills and challenge her to a dance off. The DJ mixes Flo Rida and Brad Paisley tracks and everyone stands back as Lil Cha Cha and The General serve one another a can of Country whoop ass!

Suddenly, the Dj played a song normally danced with a partner. The dance was called 'two-step' Lil Cha Cha looked in the DJ booth to see why he would do such a thing in a dance off. However, in the shadows she heard a familiar voice. "May I have this dance?" It was Big D. Lil ChaCha stood frozen, it was rude to decline a dance, but she didn't want to touch Big D. She felt a hand take hers but it wasn't Big D, it was The general. He two-stepped Lil ChaCha's butt right out of Bid D's sight. What's more is he did it well. "General?" Lil ChaCha gasped, "You dance Country?!"

The General replied with his signature "Hmm.." Before anything else could be said, the whole crew was on the floor learning to line dance. The instructor? You guessed it, The General. 

...I've been listening to a lot of country lately T_T

Kinda confusing as I have had the nicknames Big D and The General! Perhaps this is some type of internal struggle then?? But you did get some things right, I looove getting lost in the tranced world of dancing =) Although, I am not a big fan of country music, but if I am in a room full of people really into it, I think I'd be able to get on with it, as well. Thanks for the story Heeks =D I'm not sure what is going to happen with the next picture, but Jaaz and Tifa will be meeting for the first time ;)

Would you believe I have exactly that haircolour right now? Not kidding. My right side is brown and my left side is blonde and I currently even have a  little (faded) pink streak in my hair as well! That's the main reason I wanted to check it out. :P

She looks really nice. The anatomy looks good and your style is really nice. The rendering looks good too, but there are a couple of things you can work on.
The hair seems really solid, a few stray hairs can fix that.
I feel like you could push the contrast some more, right now there are no real dark shadows. What's missing is cast shadows, with more sharp edges. They should be underneath the cap and underneath the hair and underneath the face. You could als darken the inside of the cap, the inside of the hair and her back arm.
Also at first I though the bra looked pasted on, even though the edges clearly show that it isn't. I think that could be partly fixed by adding more cast shadows as I mentioned earlier. But I think it's also partly the rendering. Perhaps it should be a little more rough?

Anyway, overall the piece is very nice! I like how the colours fit in with the background without letting her fade away.

That is kinda crazy, haha, that your hair is identical! Maybe there was some space-time mix up and the idea was transferred from your head to my head? Likely, haha

Thanks for the critique, I definitely like what you said, particularly that embracing and allowing some more suggestive or rough work may improve my stuff, thank you. =)

Yes indeed! She is sitting in the passenger seat of my creative drive, starting from about 4 years ago. This is the earliest picture of her in dA: JAAZ Magazine As I take the drive further and my skill increases, she becomes more existent.

Thanks man, her background is simply being based on a real-life person. On top of that, she was a character from a comic I wrote a few years ago. =)
