Wooohoooo I'm back!
It's been a loooooooooooong time since I've drawn anything, and now I'm starting anew.
So, pastel pencils on A4 blue-tinted paper. First I've found a reference (not of very good quality unfortunately) and I thought that I should do it in pastel, which is my first serious try in this media. And I'm pleased with the result, though maybe it would be better if background was more detailed, but due to the reference quality I couldn't figure them out. And still...it's a BACKGROUND, a solid background, my first)) And it's my first time drawing rain. A lot of firsts for one work, so you should tell me honestly - did it work out?

great poses! Also, this lines from Eponine's On My Own (Les Miserables) started playing in my head as soon as I saw the title: "In the rain the pavement shines like silver." That's exactly what I see in the image!

Wow, great job! The wet floor looks really impressive, you've captured the texture of the road and the spashing of the rain perfectly. The lack of big puddles makes it look really authentic. I love the use of the yellow on the figures as well.

This is one of my favourite pieces that I've seen in a while :D
