MGC - Fireflies by Neomae MGC - Fireflies by Neomae
My entry for this month's MGC.

I chose the topic of February 2007: Canon Romance.
The scene was inspired by the song "Fireflies" by Owl City.

This piece took pretty much time and I found the light effects and the background really difficult. I'm thankfull for every hint! =)

Brooklyn, Katana (c) Greg W.

EDIT: OMG, I can't believe it! This picture won Most Artistic in the last MGC!! I'm so happy!! :boogie:

Lovely work as always Neomae. You do make the best drawings of Brooklyn and you do a great job on Katana as well. They do make a cute couple. But I am still don't know what their relationship was like before they became mates. They couldn't stand each other at first is that it and than gradually began to fall in love with each other?

Honestly, nobody knows, Greg hasn't gotten to that part of the story unfortunately. That hate in the beginning and love later was Brooklyn and Sata, his mate in the TGS saga.

Thanks Pinkgargess, I remember Sata, I didn't like her at first when I read the TGS saga, I don't know why I just didn't. But after I saw Katana in her cannon design I started to like Sata a bit. Weird huh? I actually found something on AskGreg where he once described their relationship as Sam & Diane-esque (cheers of course) So that would have really been interesting to see if it did go in that direction at first. I must admit I was surprised when I first saw her too, but always figured that Greg would have pulled something to have her getting some unusal features.

These fireflies illuminate the scene perfectly! I love the expression on their faces.

This is beautiful :D better than wot i can do xx
myuutsuCMCE Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2009
Impresive art!
Your style really makes it look as a beautiful piece. Anatomy drawn quite good, as shadows and pose are stunning.
As a detail if you allow me; Brooklyn's face looks really well done and his eye/glance possess a very lifelike and interesting look.
The whole picture has a very natural touch that I love.
:+fav:ed again because your works are always of quality.

PS: Their feet/toes has something little weird but no matter

That's so beautiful. :aww:
I'm so in love with this couple.
They're my new favorite canon couple. =3
MisterWho Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2009
Awww, mit dem jetzigen Ende von MGC hat es mich eher an "Die letzten Glühwürmchen" erinnert.

Schön wie die Glühwürmchen beide in Licht tauchen. (Brooklyns Flügel scheint beim Lichtfleck ein paar zu missen ?)

11 Jahre MGC und Station8 seit 1996...wie die Zeit vergeht. :(
DTaina Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2009
Looks very nice, but their wing "arms" are almost as tall as they are. That's my only criticism.

Good luck with this month's MGC!

DAMN! That is sweet! Good luck Neo, glad your back for this last MGC.
supinternets Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2009
This is wonderful! I really love your take on the gargoyles too, you really have your own style for them.
coda-leia Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2009  Professional Digital Artist
wow ! this is just... awesome !
Love the fireflies, very romantic feeling :) Go Brooklyn go !
Avathae-Mangaka Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
damn I wish I was good at art, you are a master
Epantiras Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Awesome :D I can see you've developed a personal style of drawing gargoyles too.
I think the background works well, especially in "small view" because I can see the whole pic and how the whole composition works. I'd expect to see the usual "spotted" light/shadows you see when people are under trees but it could distract the viewer's attention from the light of fireflies, so I don't know.
My only complaint is that I wished I had enough time to draw something as awesome as this for MGC, but that's not your fault ;-)

Aww that's so romantic!
