Memories by MementoViola Memories by MementoViola
There's a shadow in the door-frame
With a hunger for the highway
The poison from the bee sting
The mirrors on the ceiling
The thunder and the lightning
The hibernating heart sings out

There's a quiet conversation
A discarded invitation
A statue on the fountain
A molehill on the mountain
A river through the kitchen
We're swimming in basement now
And I met the ghost in the mirror 
Gave me quite a fright but I came nearer 
Told me all his secrets in a whisper 
And I had my palm read by the psychic weather reporter 
Said he was a wicked fortune-teller 
Gazing at the glowing teleprompter
Another room, another day, another season
Another feeling
Another reason to call me a liar  

~ from Sea Oleena - Untitled

I'm so into Sea Oleena music right now! It's so inspiring and meaningful. I think I'm gonna use the song for my tumblr too haha. :D But I'm not happy with the title of this
picture - it seems so simple so I'm gonna rename it later. Excuse the bad lighting when scanned to the computer. I have to touch it up a little when scanned to the computer. I was so freaking scared of ruining the picture.
For some reason, the face of the girl looks much better in real life (the picture). So this is why I'm thinking it's my scanner's fault.

Oh I also forgot to sign my name! I will just do it later too lazy right now lol because I will have to rescan and everything :(

What a lovely and colourful piece! It is very calming and peaceful and it shows you have your own type of art style. My only criticism with this piece would be her hand at the forefront but it's easily ignored when you're taking in the whole piece into consideration. :)

Ah thank you so much! Yeah I really suck at drawing hands so I tried to make it fit with the pictures T_T I will need more practice with hand drawings lol 
Even so, thank you for liking it though! :D

Oh no I appreciate your critique. It helps me improve and gives me a lens on how others feel or think about my picture! So thank you for that!

Yeah I feel that way too, I think I messed up on the shoulder. I want to fix it but I already colored it...Oh well, I will try to watch my anatomy more when I draw new things in the future. I'm not good at anatomy, so I need to study that more. It is my worst subject lol :(
I think I am still being influenced by the anime/cartoon style. I really want to draw more realistic artwork. I tried semi-realism as the first thing I go into before I tackle realistic full on, so that's why it makes the face looks funky x_x
I'm glad you like it in the end though T_T I haven't drawn anything for a long time so I need to practice more to hone my skill, but instead I didn't and went for the hard part right away. So that's why. So yeah. Thanks though! :D
