So what if we could fly

I refuse to hear 'step down from there'
when I enjoy my feet dangling in the air
What if we could fly?
What if we could soar so high?
But we can't because we're scared
So silly and unprepared
To just jump into the sky
I don't wish to die--just to be free
But I guess we can't have everything, can we.

quick, simple, but fun :]
For some reason, the entire time I drew this, I couldn't help but think of an artist I've known for a long while, :iconannibal:. I kinda wished we talked a little more often - w-

Okay, I've been meaning to comment on this since you submit'd it, but I kept forgetting because I suck.

I just love the entire perspective on this. The curve of the buildings, the curve of his body, the clouds reflecting off the windows, the loss of saturation and definition as the buildings get taller, the-- everything. You're really getting that fluid, pro look to your pictures. Envy, man, envy.

Oh my god I love you. I saw this on my notices and was like....Mana is such a goddess.

I wished we talked more too! Argh, I need to visit DA more! But yeah, you rock, and I think this is my favorite picture on deviantART and I am going to download it and look at it like some crazy stalker fiend because it is so great.

The perspective, that serene look, the fragments of glass, the atmo, the's all so...mature. You are a great artist! :D :glomp:

Haha, you know in the old westerns, they made their own easy to break windows with corn syrup?

This just reminded me of that - and awesome.

Looks nice, I like the pose and perspective.

I'm surprised they don't have any cuts from jumping out the window. lol
