Kinda my take on it, since I didn't have a ref.
I think I got it wrong.

People? Since when did I turn plural?

My words must paint pictures. Or you have mutated. I am going with the latter.
Oh, and he is probably going to fail the jump and break something.

ACL tear. Just trust me, inside joke. Not really funny either...Ummmm...ya. None of you would get it. So I don't know why I made it.
No one read all this, do they...

Of course I did. You want comments?

Well, it kinda does smoosh it a little bit, but what I meant was arts by the mods and mods of Christmas past...

Also, thanks, I don't know how I could have missed the tray.... XD

I do have a bit of a multiple personality/schizoid mentality, but neither of those voices were the ones drawing.

Sounds painful. But eh, he's resilient. It's Kai, after all*.

Don't I always? But eh, up to you, if there is nothing to comment on, then there is not reason to comment.

I always liked the mod of Christmas present better. Oh well.

Also, thanks, I don't know how I could have missed the tray.... XD

Said tray is also very good for jamming the door in case of zombies.

*I am starting to feel it would be a good idea to make a small introduction to some of the characters that keep popping up? Like Kai, who only people from 2008 will remember readily. Same with Lyra, who shouldn't have become a character anyway.

Well what is the black line on the right side of the picture? It looks like your hand slipped while using a type of brush.

And the leaves on the trees on the left side of Kai seem to bright. I think they take away a little from focusing on Kai.

I should probably have put some kind of texture on the block, so it didn't just look like a black line, but actually an block of concrete or a building, which he (stupidly) jumped from. But I was getting tired and I hate backgrounds.

And the leaves on the trees on the left side of Kai seem to bright. I think they take away a little from focusing on Kai.

He wouldn't like attention being put on something else than him, so noted. Some leaves do have rather bright leaves, especially early in the spring, before the sun has started burning through properly.
The same colour was used for some of the leaves on the other side as well, so I guess it's just because it's contrasting against the building and the darker branches of one of the other trees.

And tinylol, but I kinda thought you meant if I wanted comments on the rant. No one usually seems particularly interested in my brainspawn, so I assumed there was nothing to actually comment on and that no one would bother reading it anyway.
As for comments on the image, well, as written, I am still rather high on completing it. It was a nice image. I am hella proud of it, and now I am starting to feel that familiar "you could have done better" feel. Oh well. Doing better with beating Pan up for the ASC this week.

Cen's dream girl. Literally so, as he has never met her, but does dream about her from time to time.
The AU Strop and I have been toying with does take it further than that, but otherwise.
Pretty brunette girl with blue eyes.

nice drawings, howd u change the name?

Thanks. Magic.

And something else, just because: I really, really do enjoy watching American series with Danish or Scandinavian characters or people in them. Not just because it's fun to see a small country like this being mentioned, but also because Americans pronounce Danish names in a hilarious way.

Nice job on the foreshortening, Cenere. Pretty difficult pulling off that type of perspective.

Besides that, I guess my only other comment would be to make the lighting more dramatic (stronger highlights and darker shadows) since it's a bit difficult to tell where the primary light is coming from.

No we don't. You guys just have hilarious names.

Nup. Sorry, but it is most definitely the pronunciation.
Which is understandable, of course, but no less amusing and slightly hilarious.

Thanks. It took forever to get right, and I keep seeing evidence that it might not have been as successful as I hoped.

I would, but some of the exercise was to get the light to fit the setting. Spring doesn't have a very stark light, not to mention it is rather cool as well, and that was what I was trying to capture, rather than making the shadow and highlight look as dramatic as possible.
I will, however, be doing cellshading in the next entry, so the light there should be a bit easier to make out.

O wait, I remember a mentioning of lyra a long time ago in your previous art thread. (a loooong time ago, before it was locked.)

You guys have people named "Uffe" (ooh-fuh). That's the noise a fat guy makes when he's lifting something heavy.

And you think you're the only ones who find your pronunciation hilarious.

Yes, I am aware. The reason I posted it was due to Bones having a dead woman in called Inger, which is pronounced with a soft g, rather than IN-GER! like in the show. Other example was Stefan Rasmussen, who was in Mayday. Sounded funny as well.

And you think you're the only ones who find your pronunciation hilarious.

I don't find my pronunciation hilarious. I find English, and in this case especially American, pronunciation of Danish or Scandinavian words and names hilarious. Because it is. To me.

She has been drawn a bit, I think Strop might have her somewhere close to the newest end of his thread as well.
