Thanks for your comments on the WIP. <3 They were very much appreciated. :'D



I dunno where the inspiration came from, but the whole story behind is this picture is that people may have a harder time accepting our dark possessions, and sometimes we ourselves are the only ones who can accept them.

Gah! Vague explanation! "OTL

Those who love only our bright sides misses half of our personality. Dark sides add to our individuality, but sometimes, we need someone to brighten them up.

No one is perfect.

Don't hate me for my multiple imperfections. Everyone has them.

Have a nice day, everyone! :heart:

It's a really cute picture of a girl.
I think that it's a girl that shows her heart to show that she has a good heart but also a dark side.
I really love the combination of the shading and the light, and the bright and "lighting up" paint where she painted the heart with. I really love this kind of art, Jay!
I never seen anything like it, it's pure art of an talented and original artist! You can be very proud of it if you are that kind of artist. I really, really love this. Just can't stop saying it, teehee!
What do you think?
The Artist thought this was FAIR
3 out of 3 deviants thought this was fair.

La tecnica es muy buena y las luces y sombras se ven muy equilibrados con el dibujo.

Los detalles son increibles ya que se nota la diferencia de texturas, como lo que trae en la cabeza [perdona no se el nombre]

El cabello se nota la diferencia de los cabellos, las luces y las sombras son muy buenas...

La tecnica que usaste en los ojos es bastante realista y reflejan la tristeza que existe en el dibujo... entre la tristeza, intriga y preocupación

En general, la tecnica y el mensaje son increiblemente buenos.

Sólo que en mi opinion, si existieran otras cosas en el dibujo podría revelarse algo más sobre el significado de la escena. pero [que quede claro] eso ya son las decisiones del artista.

Wow, this really shows the part of us that, usually we wanna hide.
The true is that who really love you, knows your worse side and still love you.
This doodle really captures that, what we really need, someone that can understand our dark side.
As usually, the color technique, I like the shadows, they add deph to the draw.
Cangratulations, I still think your a really good artist.
