She Was Smiling... by melzilla She Was Smiling... by melzilla
BACKGROUNDS ARE SO HARD!!!!!

SO this is the final outcome of a sketch I did… wow last summer! I have a love/hate relationship with this image it’s not even close to what I saw in my head when I set out to make this! However it’s my first background so I am proud that I finished it. AND it’s Sesshoumaru!!!! lol I don’t even like Sesshoumaru that much I think he’s an interesting character but…. He doesn’t have puppy ears! :shrug:

Anyway I learned soooo much in the creation of this image and I think that’s what it’s all about you know? Trying to make each image a little better then the last one you did. Seeing your mistakes and trying to grow from it.

Enough chatter! This image is obviously my very late dedication to:

Inuyasha
Kaze – “Wind”
Chapter 374, [link]

Yet another chapter that would for me most likely be as of yet unread if it wasn’t for ear-tweak. [link]

This image is totally dedicated to two very close friends of mine whom in my opinion is the best photographer on DA, and . These are two of my biggest cheerleaders in encouraging me to pursue my art and I am eternally grateful to them. Their constant support and wonderful critiques have helped me really improve my art and their friendship is invaluable to me! They even listened to me while I griped and complained about the insane amount of details on Sesshoumaru’s clothing and armor. Their suggestion to my complaints? If I didn’t want to draw Sesshoumaru detailed outfit maybe I should just remove the offending clothing…………… they offered to do it for me………. With their teeth! I luff you guys! XDDDDDD

Because he is "such a mancakes" and you really can't see the detail in this piccy here is a closer shot of the Smexxshoumaru! [link]

FFFFFFF Sesshoumaru :'D That chapter was just so wow. I loved it, personally.

The picture's gorgeous as well, especially the background and the feather, FFFF how ogrgeous the feather is! <33 The flowers are just so... wow, amazing. And Sessh's expression... *-* Amazing job!

His outfit sounds like it's very hard to draw, tho >.<

Despite your "love/hate" relationship with this piece, it turned out beautifully. His expression is somewhat between sad and contiplative...So Sesshoumaru. I love
the colors, too.

This picture is amazing, I :love: it! I wonder why he looks so shocked though, maybe he overheard your comments? You know, the part with the clothing =D. I do not find it offending however, and if Fluffy-dono wanted to remove it, he could do so himself, ne? =P

Argh! How did I miss this??! Hehe, I've been so sporadic on DA for the past few weeks I haven't seen a lot of Yasha art!!

Heee! What can I say, when you first showed me the WIP, I thought it was gorgeous, and seeing it finished is just... just... *squeaks and huggles* It's awesome. :D And you should be proud of it! ^___^

LOL thank you!!!! Your so sweet! And your computer was recently discombobulated LOL!!! So it's not completely surpriseing if your a little behind on stuff. Hell I can't ever keep up with everything between LJ and DA and the Quad and the one or two other online things I try to keep track of it's impossible!

And well as far as backgrounds go I need to get alot better yet but I am learning. :)

MEL! *glomps* SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!! I think you did a beautiful job on this piece. The background is amazing, and the detail on the flowers in the forefront *sigh* I wanna touch them! I love your use of color, it's so vivid! I also wanted to let you know that I love the way you draw your characters, although it's teh Fluffy, there is a disticnt "mel" air about the way he is drawn and I love it! Thanks for sharing this great piece! Oh and the McMancakes comment and little piccy are hilarious! Thanks for sharing that too!
