Moon In Your Eyes by ValyceNegative Moon In Your Eyes by ValyceNegative
"Is it the wine messing with my vision, or are your eyes really as shiny as the moonlight tonight?"
Well this took way less than expected, luckily! My working days have now been split in three parts (which are: commission work, Lost work and personal work) and I was sure my personal drawings would've once again ended up being delayed forever, but instead I've completed this in exactly one week which is a mighty fine achievement! Let's hope I can keep this pace going until this summer at least, when Lost Issue 1 should be completed and printed. Also, this got unintentionally tied with Midnight Driver (… ) as both are set in late evening, the latter has a city in the background and this one has hills showing in the far distance. xD I've always really liked these kinds of "what's happening in different parts of town at the same time" sorta series, I might try to link more of them in the future, maybe not specifically to these two.

So! Under the suggestions of fellow artists I've chatted with during Cartoomics, I've been using this scene to experiment a new style of softshading, which is really just the same as what I used before, but adds precise and distinct shadows where two objects are very close to eachother. It's obviously up to the audience to tell me if it looks any better or worse than my previous methods, but personally, I think the difference shows! The picture itself looks much clearer and the shadows are surely sharper than, say, Midnight Driver or even Hitchin A Ride (… ) but still appearing undoubtly soft, because detailed scenes rendered with cellshading just aren't my style. Most of all, it's not hard to get it done, and if it took me 300 years yesterdey to finish character rending, is just because Candy wears so much stuff. x.x But I still love her <3
There's also a quick "reflex" effect added for last, which I love how it came out, especially for the vase at the far right x3 Now what I really need to learn is a good method for skyscrapers and lit up windows xP

Main inspiration for this scene has been Highway Superstar's song "Take My Time" (… ), whose background drawing is absolutely gorgeous <3 Who wouldn't want to spend an evening on that balcony? x3

in simplest of words can never  transpire
on the delicate wire that hangs my heart
over the edge of my reality I see what you see
in the sea, of starlight's bliss and concrete symphony

but no words of such simplicity come out as I can not
will not describe you in slanders that belittle the meaning
of you and I, so let nocturnal beauty dance as we contemplate

Yes, Yes contemplate what futures that may lay themselves
before us as words of lacking fall from my lips and you
find some other to treat you like a thesaurus of gracious splendor
and infinite play  

haven't written poetry in a while I think i'm loosing my touch
but this pic is brilliant valy great work
