'Good-Bye.' by Dopaprime 'Good-Bye.' by Dopaprime
Because the evening sunray
and the dust on the desks
are our silent witnesses.

Even though we are apart
You’ll always be in my heart.



:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:
This will be included in my school's Annual Book.

Photoshop CS3
Wacom Bamboo Fun
6 hours

I tried to make this look as similar as possible with my actual classroom and uniform.
...
Yea, goodbye, high school.

I wonder whether I should be happy or sad lol.

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.:heart: Having to leave was so hard I cried Keep up the good work!!!!~ :heart:

Love the lighting and the overall feeling :) Gives such a nostalgic feeling. LOL :D Be happy, I guess. After all, high school is supposed to be the best time of your life right?

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

beautiful piece.

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.

As always, I've fallen in love with your style :dummy:

The details, the lighting and highlights, the expression and posture.. it's all so laid back and casual and yet there's this feeling of melancholy :heart:

And this sort of resonates with me too... since I'm almost done with high school as well. It's a bitter sweet moment, and I think you portrayed that really well here :)

Graduating is always bittersweet. It feels good to move on but you know you will miss something, even if just a little.

I think you captured that emotion here.

this is kinda sad thou, but I guess when one door closes another one opens so I'd say be sad for a little while but be happy for the new things to come. Oh, and congrats on graduation :hug:

Love the lightning on this one btw ^^

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.
