Alone in the Universe Tonight by cfraser Alone in the Universe Tonight by cfraser
ack really sorry about resubmitting this guys! first the thumbnail wasn't working and then it just stopped showing up lol :P wtf? ... and apparently the thumbnail still isn't working :P plz full view ;)

EDIT: I changed the eyebrows :/

I haven't submitted anything in over a month... just haven't felt like drawing anything at all....

This is just something different I decided to try today. Started otu as a quick ink sketch last night and I decided to try coloring it today Just whipped up fast, I know the rain is amazingly retarded looking but I don't feel like arsing around with it anymore. It was mroe just a test pic because I've never drawn anything dark like this before or anything with rain either

She's nobody in particular, just a random girl.

Anyway, comment and crit extremely welcome!

Amazing, the expression is prefect and the rain looks realistic. All the colors fit the mood really well too...
NearTheSky Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2007
I really like this! The pose is perfect and the expression on her face is amazing.
Now for the spammier part of this comment:
How I found this was by typing in 'dark brown hair', and when I was browsing through the deviations, do you know what song I was singing? Alone In The Universe. XD

She's so beautiful and sad ... Rain is awesome. Really love it. Really great job ! :)
Rico007 Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2006
I'll simply state how beautiful you have made her, and especially the rain. I'm a lover of the rain...
MurderousCookie Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2005
It appeals to emotion and the hearts of many. You did a brillant job with the impact it would have on it's gazers. Not to mention the drawing skill isn't shabby! ^_~ I love it. Instant Fave.

I really identify with this piece, and I know many who do. There is a real emotional tone here. The low contrast helps convey a somber and faded mood. The choice for a gray background along with the gray shirt help unify the piece as well as push the feeling of dark and lonesome. The rain is a more logical symbol of sadness and her facial expression looks about to cry. The darkened areas above below and behind her help keep her figure on the edge of the light and pull the rest of the image area into the veiwers eye.

I would say though that both her hands in her pockets give me a conflicting mood. I was almost expecting to see at least one arm hanging loose.

Otherwise this is an excelent piece. I anticipate more great deviations from you! :aww:

MegShrk Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2005
Sorry, I am not one for short comments ^^;

Oh and I don't think that her features are too far up like a previous post has stated. Her face, to me, looks like it should. If anything she almost has a pouting look. I also don't think the eyes are a problem being bolder than the rest of her feature. I actually believe it helps bring the eye to her eyes to see her expression. Again I am very amazed with this peace.

Keep Creating

iANAR Featured By Owner Apr 22, 2004
I'm very impress of how to did this, you did the composition, the colors very well, and looking at it makes me feel like I want to :hug: and give her a shoulder to lean on. The rain effect helps more on building up the emotion. This piece is going to be a must fav for me. :aww:

Bravepower Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2004
I love the rain effect. :) And the atmosphere. Great!
pokeralice189 Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2004
This looks very good, the anatomy is well drawn and the coloring is done very well for you to have gotten frustrated with the rain and such (Rain's gotta be the pits to try and color, the evil stuff). The only thing I can see that could possibly be wrong is your face looks a little off somehow. My best guess would be that your features are a little too high up and the eye is a little bit bolder than the rest of the face.

I really like this one, though, and I think you did a much better job than I could've ever done on the rain. :clap:
KeeLe Featured By Owner Mar 28, 2004
cool... the rainy days and her sad expression goes well together XD
Lakaia Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2004
I love how the rain and darkness add to the gloomy look to this. And the eyes are beautiful. I like how the face is slightly brighter than the rest of the picture.

Oh, I love your avatar. Terra is my favorite character.

:wow: That is wicked, she looks so sad, you've caught the expression briliiantly, also, the pose and angle I think are very original, and also add to the subtlety of this piece, the rain adds great effect too, awesome work ladybird :)

Love da rain effect!! yeah.. she looks so lonely in this pic... XD
jimbob2000 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2004

I appreciate your self-scrutiny. There's nothing I'd say that you haven't covered already. The rain is alright, but yeah, could use improving. I can do no better. :)

I think your work is fantastic, and I wish I got to know you more before I moved over here.
