Edit: apparently many people don't get the quote from the book. It's not about happy families being bad (who even thinks that?) it's about how hard it is to be a happy family because everyone in the family must be good to be a happy family, but unhappy families are easy because it only takes one bad family member to become unhappy (like an alcoholic dad or a narcissistic mom, etc). This is actually a general concept applied to many aspects of life and society.

Been doing a lot of Photoshop practices lately but it's always nice to paint in SAI again. I really enjoy switching between styles
The quote on the shirt says "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." It's from the book Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy.HD Image files and process videos of this my painting on www.patreon.com/Yuumei
It doesn't seem like she's in a happy family right now...
"They all pretend" is what I get from this.
The hands covering her mouth so she doesn't speak out, or the choice of color for her hair, that could allude to stress induced graying.
Like if the girl is forcing herself to think shes happy in an otherwise dysfunctional family, that "acts" towards everyone with smiles. And that its her that not normal, or ungrateful.
the happy family that all members share the same interest in everything thats why they are compatible, thats why they are at ease ergo happy
then there is the happy family where the minority are so different from the majority of the family members but they have to keep their difference hidden so the family can live together in harmony ergo happy
Also pretty cool work like always! I love your artwork :3 I like how you put meaning into every piece you draw *-*
Also know that feel with changing drawing programs... My first program was SAI too... Now I am using Manga studio 5 and yeah it is nice... But sometimes I just go back to SAI and enjoy it even when there aren't that nice brushes and stuff
I'm sorry if this has been asked so much, are you still using SAI v1 or have you switched to SAI v2?
Without it they are nothing more than pesky landlords who you lease a room from, and later on this weirdo school era friend that calls after a bazylion years.
It might be chance, who your family is, but they aren’t random. I’ve lived with random people, and it’s not even a little bit the same.
