This Close by RenaHikari This Close by RenaHikari
I was listening to the new Flyleaf CD the other night, and this is what came out of it. XD
My right hand is just about dead now as you could probably guess after looking at all those raindrops.... But It was worth it, I think...
Anyways, enjoy.

Inspired by the song "This Close" by Flyleaf

Lyrics:

Had a dream that we were dead, but we pretended that we still lived.
With no regrets we never bled and we took everything life could give
And came up broken empty handed in the end
In the hearts of the blind, something you'll never find is a vision of light
With the voice of the dead, I'm screaming

I don't know who I am anymore
Not once in life have I been real but I never felt this close before
I've been looking in your window I've been dressing in your clothes
I've been walking dead, watching you, long enough to know I can't go on.

Had a dream that fire fell from an opening in the sky
Someone warned me of this hell, and I spit in his naive eye
And left him crying for my soul he said would die.
In the hearts of the blind something you'll never find is a vision of light
With the voice of the dead I'm screaming

I don't know who I am anymore.
Not once in life have I been real, but I've never felt this close before
I've been looking in your window, been dressing in your clothes,
I've been watching you long enough to know I can't go on.

The level of attention to detail is a huge leap up from what I'm used to seeing in your work, so great job on that! The coloring is really impressive. The palette is definitely appropriate and though you probably could have done something more with the lighting, it's not bad at all. In terms of composition, it seems a little heavy toward the left side, but it's not too terribly off balance. The gradient sort of shading of the window pane does a lot to draw the eye to the character's face, though I might've gone with an even greater contrast between the tones of the pane and those of her face. The overall shading of the subject's body could also probably use a little more contrast, especially in the darker range, but at the same time I feel like her back might blend in a bit too much with the right side of the composition (I don't know if that was intentional or not). I'm kinda a sucker for contrast, though, so a lot of this is really just my personal preference. >_<

Anywhooo, overall it's a really nice piece! Inspires me to do something more detailed than I usually do. Great job. :3
