This deviation is full of something that I've always been searching for, in the maelstrom of the 1001 artworks on DA : feelings.
The colors, the composition, the light, everything conveys a deep nostalgia, a little melancholia that we ressent sometimes towards something that we have to leave, something that we didn't really cared for the first time we discovered it but now that we realize that we won't see it anymore, his value suddenly emerge.
Congrats for making such a beautiful piece in such a little time, you are definitively a great artist and I wish you to raise the summet, you already have some great wings to do so.
I know what it feels like to leave something so great, I love school a whole lot cause school showed me what I can do and I didn't even know I could do them Like I'm good/decent at many different arts but when i got into high school, I found my one true love, Theater Arts, It felt like i was in my own Wonderland. Having to leave was so hard I cried 3 I wish i was in school still.. I had to stay home and take care of my family, was going to school this fall, but my mom said that I can't go to school till spring, the only sad part is i cant be apart of theater ;_; anyways Your tech. was awesome I love the many colors you used, I gave you 4 for Originality cause every one knows what it feels like to say good by to school and at the same time this is a first I have seen a that puts that kind of feeling into it. You did a wonderful job w/ this Keep up the good work!!!!~
Okay..how do you do it?! I mean the backgrounds looks great! Do you normally use references with a camrea? I know I could never just draw perfect backgrounds like this(Then again..I never tried..I should)
I'm interpreting this as.... SCHOOL'S OUT!! what's not to celebrate? Yeah I know, you leave a lot behind but the road doesn't end there. who knows, you might meet Dorothy if you follow the yellow brick road. Again the emotion in this is like.... WEA-AH! (I just made a new word...) and the colours much convey the boy's expression. Brilliant work
I like the light and the colors, the guys expression is quite nice also... kind of solemn and tired.
I feel there's something odd with the position of the door's handle, like it's a little too far or too... soon? depending on the size of the door, the way it opens and how much space is the guy opening up with it... well... it's suggesting something and giving something else... to my eyes at least.
Well if you had good memories of high school it would be normal for it to be a bit melancholic. Which is the mood I get from that picture. To be honest I pretty much glad to leave high school myself haha XD
I think you did a good job with the lighting. And I like the way you used blur on the hand so we focus more on the desk/person.
