After School by cactusrain After School by cactusrain
To me, art is more than being able to draw perfect anatomy or knowing the difference between complementary and secondary colors. You've created art when it tells a story, evokes emotions, and ignites something memorable within the viewer. And I hope I have succeeded that with this piece.

This is partially a request that ~Observer-of-life made. He asked for an epic sky. LOOK AT HOW AMAZING THE CLOUDS ARE AND HOW INFERIOR THEY MAKE MY FIRST ATTEMPT SEEM.

Photoshop CS3, Bamboo Tablet, as always.
7 hours.

I've been drawing a lot of couples in love lately. Hmm... Perhaps I need different subjects LOL

Your drawing seems to be moving in my head. I feel like the leaves are really carried by the wind, I feel like the grasses are really swaying, and I can hear the couple's laughter.

and lastly... I love your description. kudos to you! :icontearplz:
