Life of the Wanted by Jotaku Life of the Wanted by Jotaku
This was a full cg commission for Phantomnexus (on fA/tumblr)
And god damn this took way too long jflkdalkfjdl;fd

But I really like how certain parts came out, such as the trees, window, the redheads face, and his hair.
-squints- I do regret my choice of lamp placement though.

Wonderfully suggestive - the differences in their attitudes, and the resulting dynamics between the characters, are hinted at, with a nice subtlety, but their poses, expressions, and most especially their gazes. Superb!

.... is it Christmas for them? Or are the lights are just lighting?

No, just lighting. I really love string lights and think they have a sort of grungy feel to them, I guess.

Such lovely colours, I really like how their skin and hair stand out in the rather gloomy, shadowy scenario. Moreover, your painting style is so, so beautiful. Congratulations on the DD, it's more than deserved! (=

this is sooo good.
although there's a lot of neutral color, the richness of the reds & touch of blue and green really liven up your work.
the lamp is sort of center stage, but the redhead takes your eye right to him, then the wonderfully done window.

no way... I am writing a story with a redhead and a long haired boy as the protagonists... and they actually looks like thes two... even the background looks like one of the placs in my story. i swear the only things different in this are the faces and personality of the charactrs... hopefully the story.

I love the character's expressions and postures, they're very expressive. I think the lamp might have been better somewhere else but it doesn't take away from the piece. And I love how the clothesline is turned in our way, it make it look like we're peeking in on them.
