The rain brought you so close to me
I wish it would never stop

I had a pretty solid image of what this picture would end up looking like in all aspects, because I had a really specific scene in mind and I knew exactly what I wanted to use to frame the scene and how I want to have fun with the lighting. I had a lot of fun drawing this into a happy picture even after using so much gloomy colours ;_;

My goodness! It looks almost realistic! The play on slighting and shading, with the water and the plants, is just beauuutifuuuul~ I do think that the bloom-lighting effect in the center could be toned down a bit, but other than that, breathtaking art, man!La la la la Clap

This is indeed so beautiful! Lighting - motion - the sharp plants - are the highlights of this piece.

The way you play with shadows and light, it's amazing. It gives your drawings so much depht and makes them feel so much more real. I'm feeling a bit jealous (or more like a lot XD). I guess, I just have to practice more.

This is gorgeous in so many ways: the light, the contrasts, the easygoing posture of the characters. The theme is pretty original imo too Thumbs Up
