Away from everyone else. by longestdistance Away from everyone else. by longestdistance

(Scheduled post)
This is an old oc, sitting alone on a starry hilltop. It's been a long time since I last drew them, but I was feeling nostalgic so I decided to revisit this drawing. I'm on a quest to redo a lot of my old drawings. I had a lot of ideas back then, but didn't have the skill to pull it off.

Here's the original pic from 2010:

You've really improved a lot since then, and knowing that this is based on an old OC gives me heartstring a bit of a twang :')

I love how it looks so comforting even when the colors and composition make it feel like a lonely piece. Your works always makes me feel so many things aa Yato Teary Icon

Thank you so much! I used a trick in Photoshop that involves the noise filter and contrast. Here's a tutorial if you're curious: www.photoshopessentials.com/ph…

This is absolutely gorgeous! I really like your OC btw! They remind me of one of my absolute favourite characters, I hope you don't mind me saying. :'3
I really love the use of blue on the clothes/skin/hair btw, it looks so lovely and gentle. <3

Thank you so much! And no worries, I don't mind at all~ This OC has a pretty common design, so similarities are inevitable ;P

You're very welcome! Ah good, I just know that some people get kinda touchy if you compare their characters to others, but if someone compared one of my characters to a character they really care about then I would be really happy so idk lol. :'3

Oh indeed, I've definitely seen some interesting reactions, myself. And that's a good point you make. If someone says "A reminds me of B" and it gets them excited because they are a big B fan, why not let them have that joy? :D

Dear LD, this picture is absolutely awesome! Sky, light, colors, that almost physical feeling of space, the overall atmosphere... all is amazingly beautiful!!!
Yes, technically you improved very much (especially the boy's figure), but already so many years ago your art was wonderful too! Your talent is fantastic!!
