Lost Freedom by ramy Lost Freedom by ramy
So I've had this image vaguely in mind for a while now, but when it finally became clear enough I decided to go ahead and draw it. Once I started drawing it though, the image changed. I decided to draw her trapped, captured, unable to do what she wants. A lot like artists nowadays. There is so much complaining on all sides about what people draw that a lot of artists are pressured into changing their styles or the content of their drawings just to please others (or to avoid criticism).

Anyway, I tried a lot of new techniques with this picture, and it came out a bit strange, but I like the direction it took, and I want to try to work on and refine the techniques I used here. I was going to wait til after I finished posting my otakon pictures, but I decided to go ahead and put this up now that I finished it. I hope you like how it turned out :)

First:Very nice picture! Second: Don't EVER let anyone choose your style for you. It is your picture not theirs. Unless of course you're making a picture for them, because then that's a different story. But still great picture! I love it!

Dear ramy, this deviation was stolen by :iconcheya1996: check out her page, you will see this there so basically, she just broke your copyright. That's all. (cheya1996) (above)

His gf did it not him, all of the pictures you see in his gallery are by his gf they are also on her photobucket, the only ones he did were his realism ones:

It's very tragically beautiful...it's just, wow. I really like her face, weak like she's given up, but then you see her eyes, they're so sharp and calculating.

Spectacular. Your the kind of artist people wait and watch to see what else you will come up with, and then go beyond all expectations with each unveiled piece of work.

I LOVE HIS ONE! Its so beautifully and well done! I like the dark feel to it and its really unique i woulden't see it anywhere else. Textures are gorgeous and the flame bit effect makes it look really nice! The furst thing i look at would ahve to be ehr eyes they stand out overall sicne there completly diffrent from all the colors. Quite creativy and very nice!
