Message in a bottle by KmyeChan Message in a bottle by KmyeChan

xD A week ago, I heard that 80's song called "Message in a bottle" (who was singing that again...? The Police...? Or Sting...?).
Anyway, I thought the title was too cool for not using it for a picture, and this instantly appeared in my mind. It doesn't "relate" to the song, just to the words of a "message in a bottle"...

I guess I could have put more work and more effort in this picture because I really liked the idea; but lately I really have no time for drawing at all, so I just tried to make a little *something* at least and have fun, instead of forcing myself to do something boringly long and complicated to draw... and anyway I will have plenty of new ideas when I finally have time for drawing... xD;;
So yes, it could have used some refinement. But I don't have the time. :3

Apart from that, I pretty much like the result, though I guess that many people will find it too simple.
Yes, my skills at drawing hands and feet could definitely use some work.... but who cares, hands and feets are so overrated nowadays. (xD J/k).
At least I tried!

I hope you will enjoy this! I don't think I'll have much stuff to submit in the next few weeks (but who knows), so...

Also, that song is performed by The Police, of which Sting was the lead singer before they split up.

Just curious, where is the blood from?
KmyeChan Featured By Owner Feb 29, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
It's not blood, actually, it's supposed to be red ink. She's at the bottom of an old ink bottle. :)

I love "message in the bottle" motive and I love The Police & Sting's song.
The picture is great (as always), your conception of the motive is both interesting and beautiful. The dress is amazing (like all your characters' outfits), girl is pretty and colours are also nice :heart: . It's another :+fav:!
