i love the simplicity of this, the hue you used, i guess it also looks much better this way than if it were to be shaded, and colored, because of its effect :)

I've looked at this over and over since I've added you to my modest watch, and I've decided I might like to incorporate it as a tattoo. I would very humbly like to know if this would be alright by you, and if so, if you have any further suggestions on where it could go, or what else you might add. Personally, I like it how it is, but it's your design, so perhaps you have something to say on the matter.
A simple yes on the permission would suffice, however :)

it's my preference that if you're serious about it that you buy a print and take that to the tattoo artist. it hurts me if you don't

transcendant is something i would lean toward "shoulder blade" on
my only real requirements are that you a) send me pictures and b) tell people who i am
SagaciousFancy Featured By Owner May 28, 2007
Oh, certainly. Certainly to each request. How awful would it be to get it tattooed without due credit. And thank you for your permission and swift response. I'll keep you posted.

I sometimes see him fly by, the fairy man
with wings so lucid, so frail
yet still he is bound

He is so far, so very very far
And yet I feel him within inches of my heart
As though I was him, one day
As though I am him, every day
As though I will be him, one day,
I fear

I speak of logic, he sings of faith
Both we writhe in doubt

But his doubts, and his faith
And even what some could dub madness
And what I could think of as sad illusion
are in my mind
so infinitely, and heartbreakingly beautiful

blacklightbombshell Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2004
Love the colors and the style! Very pleasing to the eye and the green is very relaxing.

i love the simplicity of these drawings. the series is great but this one in particular is my personal favourite because of the message. it's hopeful. which is always a pleasant change...
provocativethreat Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2004
I love the use of space.And the bold lines used for his body. Yet the elegent little butterflies at his fist. I hope that wasnt too in-dept. Since you discourage that.
sisterjanet Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2004
(unless the lines mean light instead of strings, but strings make more sense because of the first two. hmmm...)
sisterjanet Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2004
The strings! I didn't notice them at first, but then I looked at the first two, and the strings are ...bah! what's the word? detached? The picture made me already indescribably happy before I noticed the strings, but it's even better now. It's so lovely. Congratulations.
lupsealexandru Featured By Owner Sep 10, 2004
very simple and in the same time very complex...
I like the clean feeling that this work gives me...Something clean and peacefull....And full of meaning...I really like it...
nous-sommes-vous Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2004
i just had a thought about this one.


yes; that was my thought.

your... liking... for them; the little icon that you wanted made for you with a butterfly (mine's still in my gallery...), your butterfly/boxes icon you put on your pictures, having that butterfly on some of your 'webcam' shots... i don't know what it is with you and butterflies but that just clicked that maybe there really is a connection happening.

and i don't know if i ever commented on this drawing of yours. but i like it, i really quite do. there's just something about the way you draw, and especially what you draw, and it's amazing and beautiful.

Mizydoscape Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2004
Beautiful details here, and you've chosen the perfect color and postitioning. The barely vidable text adds to it as well to complete a balanced and well thought out piece. Well done :clap:

absolutely perfect. i love the use of the negative space.... :D :D
RedXII Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2004   Traditional Artist
The wings really do tone down the lines which really bring out that sense of controlled power...

Excellent piece, excellent series. Wonderful art to come home to!

Thankyou for being who you are!

No, I'm not drunk... just tired.

LilinaFaerie Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2004
well-i understand why this was a fav... of the series its definitely my favourite... i suppose its the simplicity that draws me to it... the composition is sparce but absolutely wonderfully thought-out... sometimes, (dare i say usually), bare blank space is boring--but i think in this case it *makes* the piece. --of course it help that theres the subtle green creamy hues and not simple stark white... its very soothing, and the fact that it carries through to the figure is exquisite. the figure is so well formed, the detailed shading and heavy contours that draw the eye toward it as well as their juxtaposition with the light pencil work of the wings really makes the form dynamic. :faint: i dont know what else to say, other than, per usualy ive missed the hype... im faving afterthefact ;) :+fav: excellent work!
black-requiem Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I absolutely ove this one. The green is awesome (it's my fav color). The wings are just amazing.
