1,2,3, Time to Fall in the Dark by Shizuko-Akatsuki 1,2,3, Time to Fall in the Dark by Shizuko-Akatsuki


I had so much fun drawing this. 90% of the work was based on a game of lights and shadows. The sun falls, the city is shone by the last rays of light, but darkness is lurking on the top of the sky ; the girl is between glow and blackness, but it seems she's falling into the dark side.  I'm used to play with light - you may have noticed it if you've seen my other illustrations :) - but playing with shadows is something I do really rarely, so yeah, that was quite new to me.

About the drawing itself, it's hard to tell what exactly inspired me. I guess the first time that picture came into my mind was when I was listening to "Fall in the Dark" from ShibayanRecords (by the way, the title of this drawing is a part of the song's lyrics !), but this came also from my own heart and emotions. Of course, I always put a part of myself in my drawings :) I wanted to depict that feeling you get when you fall in love with someone. You know, feeling like you're falling in a deep hole and rising to the really highness of the sky. This is how I feel everytime I think about my beloved one >///<

This is what I wanted to represent, but it's okay if you interpet this illustration in a different way. Art is subjective so any interpetation is good ! :)

Enough talking, hope you'll like it !!

Thank you so much, I was kind of worried about that since this is the first time I paint so much shadows !
