Way Back Home by Raayzel Way Back Home by Raayzel
[link] ~ tried to base the mood on this song.

Basically um, i wanted to draw something whimsical. I guess this is about a girl guiding a baby whale back home?

The perspective killed me, so hard D: And i'm sorry if it's messy! I still need to learn how to properly polish my artworks >A</

And thank you all who came to the livestream! <3

EDIT: I'm sorry to watermark it, but recently ive chosen to do so to prevent stealing and other things. I may choose to remove it later on, but right now its staying ><

Fullsize for a bigger and clearer view ^^
Yaay! I'm on a 2wk break now, hopefully I can finish the things on my to do list lol.

Your art is gorgeous~ Its this captivating melody of hue, this vibrance of color, smooth like a fresh summer snowcone~ I absolutely adore it~ I wish I could utilize color as efficiently and as beautifully as you can~ Looking at this I swear there are colors my eyes have yet to behold, like some sort of alternate space exists on the screen itself. Please, never stop drawing such grace~ Talent like yours must never be shut away~ Let your creativity flow as evenly as your perfect lines do~

So full of beautiful fantasy, this picture makes you dream and come up with a story to go with it. Wonderful! Reminds me a bit of the masterworks from Studio Ghibli :) But in your very own, colorful, vibrant and very detailed style!!!

I have to tell you a very shocking truth: this picture is copied from my story book, so please, immediate take it downor transfer it to my homepage, or else I'll sue you oral make you my court painter so that you will help with my belaboring art projects from time to time, always, maybe, because you are quite imaginative, maybe as imaginative as some of my court painters already in charge of my painting tasks
Raayzel Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2012
First off, to hear such false accusations are incredibly insulting and sadden me. Not once have I ever seen your works and even if I had, I wouldn't stoop that low as to copy someone else's hard work. I clearly remember you commenting on this piece already since July 22, 2012 over here [link] and not once did you mention that this piece had been "copied from your storybook". Hypothetically speaking, even if you had drawn this artwork, you would have recognized it immediately and commented with something similar to your statement, but yet you waited nearly a month to do so. This allows me to actually question the validity of your absurd accusation.

I've also looked through your gallery; none of your artwork seems to resemble mine. As well as that, the style of my artwork is completely different to yours, so how could i have possibly copied such a piece when my art style is so different from yours? In addition, this piece uses the same style from the rest of my other artworks.

All of what I have stated above should be enough to prove my innocence.

If not, I have further evidence that prove me innocent of such a thing, such as the larger wips of my artwork and the psd files. As well as that, i have livestreamed during the time i had been working on this piece, and i have individuals who can back me up. But yet, where is your evidence to support your accusation?

Lastly, your last statement simply ruins your whole accusation. From what i'm reading it seems like you’re clearly trying to scare me into working for you and becoming your "court painter". I am innocent and trust me; i will never become such a thing for you.

By the way, in case you hadn’t been unaware, falsely accusing an individual for something they didn't commit is considered a crime. It’s called false accusation. Even if you do not heed this response and choose to attempt to "sue me through oral" I have enough proof to prove you wrong and you may be charged instead for your invalid claim.

Now please stop with such nonsense, as I really do not want to get involved in things like this.

I love your picture, it's so colourful~ *O*
Also it's really detailled, I like that. The girl is also well drawn and I like the perspective.
The idea with the water is also great!

Alberthein1 Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2012
Nicely done ^^
A fine and imaginative (mostly very decorative and splendidly detailed) piece of practice.
It's quite fitting to the music too, and I feel obliged to thank you, see...
Not only did you provide us with a great piece of art, but also a great song to go with.
I love it.
(certainly, you forgot a small thing here or there, but where the focus lies, its alright.)
