Wait, you mean the heart's supposed to be given figuratively? (to make it easier to get, for those who were confused. XP)

Wanted a new ID. And this seemed fitting enough to follow the last one, haha.

A self-portrait of sorts. This took me a while, but it was so much fun. My favourite part is the nose, though. And the hair was fun. And the water swirls turned out not to be as challenging as I thought, though granted, I wasn't exactly going for full-out realism. Also, mostly-monotone palette <3 Made everything loads easier.

As for the title, found the word while doing research for a story of mine, along with a whole lot of other ridiculously pretty words to have to do with music and tempo and whatnot. And also. Haha. I seem incapable of doing anything romantic-like without turning macabre. I swear, I'm not like that all the time. Honest.

Feels good to get something done after months of art block. Now, hopefully, I'll be able to get the rest of the things on my plate done. Including commissions I owe (man, you guys are awesome for not, like, having me assassinated by now. They're coming! I just...keep redoing them, or having artblock, and yeah 8D;;; Or midterms. I'm so not a fan of midterms. :| )

Photoshop 7.0 from start to finish. I have 4 different versions, at various stage of completion, and I wouldn't have gotten to this one if I hadn't played around in Painter with it, too. Fun stuff <3

I really love this. I especially like how you took something figurative and made the picture literal.

She can die with peace because she gave her heart for the sake of love. How... Poetic. (Great. Now I'm choking on corniness.)

It looks... creepy, for one thing. But it does look neat, aye.
Oh, I started watching you a while back. ^^;
Forgot to mention it.
Anywhoo, name's Josh, my avatar reads "Ancient of Leaves" (nobody ever asks, so I just get that out there), I'm almost too open, and... ummm... I hope this is obvious, but I'm a fan of the Kokiri from Legend of Zelda. Even writing a fan fiction for them. :) They receive too little attention, I tell ya...
Aww, crudsit, there I go being the crazy lunatic (self-proclaimed, and about 30 people agree) I am.
Crazy 'bout Cilia (my internet girlfriend) and the Kokiri (fandom).
Lunatics are reckless and thoughtless, and I just tackle too much at once... Rarely think about what I do and... yep. Okeedokee.

Ah, and I do like all this awesomeness that your tournament is. :D And you're a really great artist.
... Prolly shoulda put this somehwere other than your deviaation, eh? ^^; Oops.

Your artwork is really cool, to be sure! And aye, I comment on every deviation I receieve. >.> I suppose a "get used to it" is in order. :laughing: Okeedokee, have a good day. :)

Thanks! That is certainly a wealth of information, haha.

Sad to say (and also a little ashamed), I haven't played too many of the Zelda games. I made it halfway through Windwaker once, but then I got busy and haven't gone back to it since. it's more a lack of time than of want, though, since they're really cool.

And I'm glad you're enjoying LoT. It's certainly a lot of fun to host, haha.

And I admire that you take the time to comment on everything. I tend to get really busy and totally forget to unless I have a pressing need to ask something. Always trying to change that, though, haha. So, yeah, see you around. :3

:laughing: Aye, well, I'm just a very open person. Like to get off to a good start, y'know? :)

Well, you can get a general idea about what LoZ is from the first half... Second half of WW is when you awaken two Sages (Makar-Wind of the Koroks and Medli-Earth of the Rito), restoring the Master Sword. Then you go off to slay Ganondorf, Tetra/Zelda helps out, and Hyrule is drowned forever. :(

How could I not enjoy it, eh? :D And I can believe it's fun. :w00t:

Aye, I'm sure I will see you 'round. :) And of course, I've got about 30 people I'm watching, so... if I don't check something you just put up, then... I'm still lookin' at stuff from the previous day or something. :laughing: But I'll get to it! :)

It's a little scary to see the gash on the chest... but I can't help but like this piece anyway. There's just something about the serene face and colouring that caught my attention most. It's as though she's letting all her cares and burdens of her heart get washed away as she lulls herself to peaceful, oblivious sleep.

Sad to say I didn't understand that. The only Germanic language I kinda know (besides English) is French. If you try a Slavic one I might be able to kinda get by, though!

Interesting picture. While I'm not a fan of blood in artwork, there is something ... settling, almost romantic about the piece. That was what I felt after the knee jerk repulsion to the blood. Then I read your comments and reconsidered.

Nicely done! Love the simplicity of the expression and serenity ... not an easy emotion to convey, I think. Makes me believe this piece has some of the allure the Mona Lisa contains.

Magnificent. :)

I'm so glad that you picked up on the whole romantic feeling I was going for. Even though it was due to an abstract train of thought on my part, haha.

Thanks for the fav, too! <3

(Also, might I just say, you have a very..interesting avatar XP)

It's actually because the heart was given to someone. Which a throwback to my Valentines '08 picture, [link] . Yes, the answer actually is that cheesy.
