You Hardly Saw Me by MistyTang You Hardly Saw Me by MistyTang
After what was probably months, I finally did some work on Grey Eyes. I drew this picture (classroom doodles are always the best), and then wrote some more script. Just a little bit, but still. That much closer to finishing a first draft! Then the lovely job of editing will begin. :^} I think part of the problem of my not working so much on GE recently (aside from being busy and drained from commissions and school) is that I'm writing the part of GE where things get kinda depressing? Yeah.

BUt then ~GrimReapette wrote this adorable little fic --> Giving Gifts “Here.”

Luke turned around to see Mikey holding out a badly wrapped, somewhat cylindrical package.  He raised an eyebrow but carefully took the offering.

“What is it?”  Luke asked with a sweet smile.

“It’s a present thing,” Mikey said quickly, folding his arms and not making eye contact.  “I had some money from the smithing, and I didn’t need food and stuff so—” Fuck this is not how you compliment.  “I got it for you.  It’s a present.  Not a thing, a present.”

One of those gorgeous little smiles that Luke was so good at moved across his pale lips.  He
and inspiration struck!!

Anyway, Luke probably ended up looking sad here because he's sad right now in my writings~ It's also come to my attention that I usually draw Luke sad when he's all dolled up (and there is a reason for that), but I promise that he's not sad every time he's made all pretty! I'll have to draw a happy pimped out Luke later~ Anyway, I took the opportunity during history class to play around with something different for Luke’s hair and outfit (the nice thing about my Ynoizmno is that pretty much anything goes for them, so I get to play with many different looks). So much fun!
Not much else to say about this one except that I'm super happy with it (well I could say way more about the little things happening in the picture...but I'll leave it to those of you who are interested in the story to think about). Everything came together just how I wanted it to. :heart:

He looks really stunning! And I love the softness of the light and colors. It adds to the sorrowful atmosphere, holds a certain nostalgic air to it.

The coloring here is quite lovely with all the shades of blues and greens. The bit of yellow is also really nice

Oooo, I love how cold the coloring on this is. Even with bright blues and greens you managed to keep the depressed and sad feel to this picture. I adore it. The sketch was great, and I love this coloring too. You always do such an amazing job. I don't know if I've said it yet, but I love how you've been shading/coloring hair. It has such a vibrant and lifelike look. It's awesome. :heart:

Poor Luke. Damien knows how that feel bro. You two can sit together and not talk about the things that happened.

I made a note in my brain to stay away from warm colors in this one~ I've been abusing warm colors too much recently. Cold and sad, but still with little flecks of light (for reasons). Ooo, thank you! I'm so glad you like how I've been doing hair. I've always loved drawing hair; giving it life like you said is one of my favorite things to do.
Eeee, you're simply too good to me Grimmy! :hug: It really means a lot to me that you like all this stuff of mine so much.

Luke would gladly sit with Damien quietly and not talk about the bad things. :heart:

It came out wonderfully. I can really see where you were careful with your coloring. This came out so wonderfully. Maiybe you could really test yourself by using limited color palettes. Like, a palette of only 5-6 colors and do some art with that. It would be challenging.

You know I love your art. I totally want to write a little scene with Luke and Damien talking now.

I have seen some other artists do awesome things with limited palettes like that. :eyes: I just might give it a shot!

Doitdoitdoitdoit. And then I will draw it. Luke would have his short hair at that point (possibly growing it out again), just FYI.

You know what I always adored and fancied the most in your works? How you mix colours that are practically unmixable. I mean, blue and grey... who would ever think of adding toxic green eyeshades? Everybody knows it would look if not awful, but awkward. But you, m'lady, somehow manage to do this in the beyond fantastic way so it looks so amazing, I just can't take my eyes of it. Really. I sometimes spend hours or days just looking at an artwork I like, and for the last year or so these are mostly your works. :clap:

Oh, thank you so much Shotgun! I don't think my work has ever been complimented like that before. People sometimes say they like my coloring, but they don't go into how I mix colors the way I do. :blushes: I'm so glad to know that you enjoy what I do with my colors so much! That really means a lot to me. And even more that you like coming back look at my pictures! :hug:

Luke, why you so pretty, staaaaaph!!

*ahem* More seriously… I've been wondering for a while but… does the reason for his being all dolled up have anything to do with the "Treasure" thing RC was telling Vitus about in Mutatio? You don't have to explain anything if it's too spoilery; yes/no is fine.

I know I've said it before but I am so very intrigued by Luke and Grey Eyes, and it's good to know you're making progress!

Maaaaaaybe~ Maaaaaaybe not~ I will not say. :ninja:

I'm glad you're intrigued by it! I really just want to finish off the script and jump into it, but geh. It's just being difficult right now. >:^/

Thanks Mangsney!
