Tea diving - Gift art by devil-in-grey Tea diving - Gift art by devil-in-grey
Note: -The sketch for this is in my scrap gallery, check it out if you want more details on the drawing.
- And resubmitted the image, you might not be able to tell the difference but i added shadow to the floor by the cup. It was bothering me and i had to do something about it
---
I am so excited about this drawing =3 first time ever i finished a comic in a day and i really love it. Trying really hard not to go off on a rant xD *really wants to talk about this*. Anyways this gift art is for [link] i hope that linked correctly, she was my 911th kiriban! i really hope you like it rini.
This is based on a picture she had in her gallery and i thought it was amusing so i had to make something related to that. Also i think i did a better job at adding a background that i didnt make this time unlike my other attempts.
I would really appreciate any comments, tips or questions you might have for me =3
^__^; heh, sorry for the people that have me on devwatch for updating this several times in the past day but i felt that i needed to add this bit. If you plan on using this image anywhere please ask for my permission first and link back to me if you do use it.

This is...well, interesting. A metaphor for drowning in habits that are totally unneccesary? You could almost substitute the tea with anything: chocolate...other substances that are addicting. >.>

I like this one as well :heart:
I like how you combined a 2d sketch with a 3d background
Love how you played around with the monotonous colours as well :D

I did get the shadowing wrong by accident haha, but it's not very noticible. This is one of my favorite drawings

haha this reminds me of my friend who lately has been saying that she's drinking way too much tea, but she doesn't care and will keep drinking ^^

you commented on my weird photo, thanks :) you're right about the green straw, but there isn't a lamp.. it's a green straw in a starbucks plastic cofee cup :D

lmao, i kneeew that had to be a straw but the picture came out so weird it was hard to say for sure.
And you should totally show my drawing to your friend lol it would just give her another reason to keep on drinking ^^

u__u no i didnt, it's a background that i slightly altered on PS. My background drawing skills arent on that level yet. I did do a good job on my nun comic though xD

Haha, this is hilarious. Her expression and the little details like the label 'tea' and the empty room really make this pic.
Well there really isn't much to nitpick, other than the oddities with the lightsource. You see, the room is lit from that one window and from behind the viewer (from the left), yet the cup is lit from the light - except for the plate which is lit from above and the handle which is lit from the left. So erm yeah.
But it's just a nuance, really. ^^

Lol, i know. I noticed my mistake with the lighting after i was done but i decided not to stress over it. I'd rather have an odd drawing than having me throw a fit and erase it x3
