Ophelie and Akko, a tragic couple of lovers in Astralia.

:iconipras: asked me to draw her OCs in an antique tragedy style. Ophelie is like these old roman mourners, crying on the dead body of her tender Akko. Did she kill him ? Only the gods know...

I 'm happy of the result ! Very inspirating ! ^^

Faut lui expliquer à cette dame que c'est pas comme ça qu'on entretien son bishi, et qu'il va beaucoup moins bien fonctionner maintenant... :/

Néanmoins c'est magnifique madame ! Très belle émotion....

Ouiii !
Ben ce qu'il faut surtout, ce serait que je PENSE (hoho je connais ce verbe, tu rends compte? 8D ) à t'envoyer une note avec ref et tout.
Après, je sais qui tu veux, il me faudrait juste deux ou trois vagues infos que j'te fasse pas un truc ooc (Velvet à la plage en bikini rose !)
Ce weekend j'ai du monde à la maison, mais si mon cerveau est gentil, je devrais penser à t'envoyer des infos d'ici quelques jours.
Après c'est comme on a dit : quand on a le temps ! XD

...



J'ai une EXCELLENTE explication... >_>
En fait hier, mon chien s'est fait enlever par des extraterrestres, et je suis partie à dos de poney ailé le récupérer au fin fond de la galaxie. C'était pas une mince affaire, j'y ai perdu une jambe, mais hop, tranquille, chuis là : demain j'envoie !

Et sinon pour de vrai, hier j'étais blindée de fièvre et aujourd'hui c'est ma surprise mensuelle qui m'a foutue un full kick dans le bide. Super début de semaine.
Si j'ai pas droit à la règle du "jamais 2 sans 3" j'ose espérer que demain, je serai apte à envoyer un mp correct, avec explications de caractère et références.

...

Moi j'y crois en tout cas U___U

This bring to mind the "Pieta", but naturally it is something completely different. I really like how you drew the mans anatomy and how you managed to use simple tools/way to acchieve volume/depth of space and setting of the scene. It compliments the drawing style, convinces the eye and works. Beautiful details!

If I might add - the pattern on the red clothing flattens the picture - somewhat the shadow and the homogene texture laid flat out makes the piece on the picture look like its not fitting there or like its glued from somewhere else. It makes his body appear as if it is flying in air.

Not completly, because the "Pieta" was one of my references. For the impression of "wavering", I have the same. But I tried some tricks on it to correct the problem and it didn't work at all. Finaly I left this as it is ... =0= I confess !

(ps - if it is in any way bothersome or unpleasant to hear critique - I know you have it set on simple commenting and not on critique desired - please tell me so and Ill concentrate on the good aspects only)

That makes sense - it shows you referenced well, but yet managed to be your "own" way. I am sure youll be even better, since I see it with each new deviation. <3

euh.... no ! Not at all ! Your point of view is just ! You're wright^^ I was just explaining that I did'nt find a good solution to the "wavering" problem : it's not really the shadow or the texture. I confessed only my lack of skills to fix it ^^

Don't worry : Your criticism is based and relevant and I can answer in an argued way without being necessarily irritated! XD
