On that day, I looked up at the sky by Shizuko-Akatsuki On that day, I looked up at the sky by Shizuko-Akatsuki

How many times did I looked up at the sky, stared at the birds, envious, wishing to be able to spread my own wings, me too, and fly away, freely, to reach for my hopes and dreams ?

Hey everyone !
In my last journal entry, I wrote that I was working on a sequential artwork - well here is the first part !
This idea was inspired by a feeling which often comes to me when I'm coping with difficult times. During this moments, when I look at the sky, and see all these birds flying across clouds, with their wings wchich can take them wherever they want, I can't help feeling envious. It seems so easy, too easy for them to move on from cheerless places to brighter horizons. I wish I could fly away, and escape from gloom and pain so easily, me too.

At this time I didn't know how to turn it into a illustration yet. Of course some ideas came in my mind, but I didn't like them much. And one day, I don't really know how, this picture came into mind. When I sketched it out, I immediately knew THIS was the right one. And I was right to follow my intuition, I'm really proud of how it turned out !

I wasn't really sure of how I should call it. The first name I chose was "Dreams of Freedom", but then I realized that the song which was playing while I was drawing was from an album called "On that day, I looked up at the sky" by Shinrabansho. I guess this was fitting perfectly. (Oh and btw, the album's cover was drawn by :iconkirero1:, I really love that artist haha, go check them out~)

I'm glad I could express myself through this piece of art, it means a lot to me. Hope you'll enjoy it as well~
Have you ever felt like the girl in the picture ? ;)

C'est trop bien owo Je comprends exactement ce sentiment, une fois on se baladait avec mes parents et on était au sommet d'une montagne, j'avais teeeellement envie de pouvoir sauter dans le vide et m'envoler *-* (oui en m'envolant hein, pas envie de crever non plus xD /pan/)
Bref t'as très bien réussi l'effet je trouve, et le fait que ce soit "décalé" comme si la fille était vraiment sur le point de sauter pour s'envoler, on quitte l'équilibre de la terre ferme, bref j'aime :la:

Ouiii c'est totalement ça ;w; Des fois il me suffit même de regarder le ciel pour m'imaginer en train de voler dedans, la sensation que ça doit faire de planer librement au-dessus de tout et tout et tout *-* Sauf qu'en vrai je suis déjà morte de trouille rien qu'à l'idée de faire du saut en parachute donc bon Q_Q
Ouais, j'ai voulu pencher un peu le cadre pour donner une impression de déséquilibre, pour que le spectateur aie vraiment l'impression de s'envoler~

Merci beaucoup en tout cas, je suis contente que cette image te plaise ♥
