Acceptance by Exarrdian Acceptance by Exarrdian
Yes, acceptance! That moment when you realize your hair grew too long and you have to cut it. :laughing:
Just kidding!

It's one of those moments when you realize the stars will always be out of reach and you can only admire them through your little broken roof.
If any of you remember my character Aries, well she's got bit of a remake! Currently, she is going through rough times but she will be fine.

As for the picture, I really wanted to use texture for this one. I feel like the perspective is all over, I kept spotting errors and after 2 hours of fiddling with the color adjustment I'm just really tired and felt like I'm making it worse. ^^;;
Buuuut, it was good practice. ^^;

Paint tool SAI
Photoshop CS4 for textures and color adjustment

This is brilliant!
I love the stars, and the way you drew the strands of hair on the ground
And her clothes; they look so good! The folds and shading *A* <3

Wow, sis! This really turned out to be quite something! I adore how you added the small speckles of light, and the texture all over the place to make it look more run down! I already mentioned how powerful Aries' expression is and how... real the tears appear! In love with the composition since the beggining and I can still pick out little details (like the texture on the matress, I think it just does the trick!). Such an amazing work sis, and always inspiring to look at your art! 

Thank you for sharing :hug:!

Thank ye, sis! :'D

Oh gosh, Aries ;u;. Everything on this turned out -really- well. I'll list a few of the things that really POP to me. For starters: Her face. You've gotten better and better at face shape, expression, and conveying emotions. Her nose (I know I keep mentioning your noses lately, but seriously they've gotten excellent) is really well done! I get a very good sense of what she's feeling in this picture - the soft crying, the tilt of her brows etc, really conveys her emotions well. Excellent job!

Colouring! I think this picture has some of my favorite colouring on it from your works thus far. Your blending on clothing and hair never ceases to amaze me - and the lighting in this particular piece really adds a special something.  Over all this is a great picture, and I'm very fond of it! ... And I want to give Ariessa a hug ;n;.

Thank yooou! q_q!
I was really happy at the face and honestly, Fabi is my inspiration for better noses xD All my characters seem to be getting nose job *shot* 8D;;;
I was afraid the picture looks too dark or not blue-ish enough while being a night shot... but guess it looks good enough! X'D
She is alright! Or will be alright! Hair cut, new look, new beginning, new aspirations! u_u!

I kept thinking if more blue would have made it better considering it was night scene but it was turning ridiculously dark!

it's a hard balance but i think you did the perfect amount of blue to just give such nice harmony to the pic. and the light blue highlights are so well done. so yeah, great job.
