hey folks happy belated valentines day. i present to you the most time consuming drawing ever. i finally decided to try ball joints, and guidelines a try, and came up with this
and after a brilliantly simple way of drawing it without eracing the guidelines, it turned into this
i'm very proud of it. the characters are Seth Edgewood (an old fan character i made in the 3rd grade after finding W.I.T.C.H, he's with...well actually i never named her she's just...a girl that i made to be...my dream girl. anyway the whole story with them is that Seth was condemned to fight 100 wars to determine where he is put in the afterlife. the thing is that every war is like a full story. i had this idea where Seth was this background character that helped out one way or another in an invention or event (it was supposed to be historical science fiction where sometimes it'd be in different dimensions expanding the events) and it always ended with Seth dying one way or another in order to go back to pergatory, and get reincarnated to start the process all over again. keep in mind this whole thing was a story 7 years in the making (the idea started when i was in the 3rd grade). as for the girl, she is actually a constant in every time he is reincarnated (she's there every time as a love interest, a friend, relative, and once as an enemy). anyway yeah that's how the story goes.
as for how this happened, it started out with just an idea of these two people kissing. i decided to make it Seth, and...girl. after that was done i said, "hmm needs more." so i threw in a tree (i was debating between a ballroom). after that i was like "needs more." so i threw in the sun, and experimented with making grass. then i said, "wow this looks great...but needs more.". right then, i didn't know what to add so i threw in a house and a non-purpose noose. and finally i was like "DAMMIT IT NEEDS MOAR!!!!!" but i couldn't figure out what to put in it. i even started asking my artist friends as to what needs to be added i was like, "it's great, it's probably the best thing i've ever done, but i feel like it's missing something!" finally it's the end of the day, and i ask my friend who is waiting for her ride with me, "look at this, it's missing something i can't place my finger on it.". her brother is a skyrim addict and starts shouting out things to put. "Dragon, a dovah, have that guy shout FUS RO DAH!" i'm just like laughing at this, until finally she says one word. "clouds?", and in that moment i make this weird noise similar to a cat for like 30 seconds. i was just so happy that i got the answer, but angry that it was so simple...anyway yeah, that's how i made this picture.
HAPPY BELATED VALENTINES DAY!
