Your arms right around me by Crystal-Dream Your arms right around me by Crystal-Dream
ah, screw it. SCREW IT! I actually wanted to keep this away from DevArt for as long as possible to make it an even bigger surprise when I finally would decide to post it, but I am actually so proud of this one that I cannot really hold it back. Forgive me for that. T__T

This is based on another song.

"Lonely Girl" is making me think of Aki who was left by Kiryu when he went away into te desert. Or, at least, this is what helps me to imagine what might have happened for my fanfiction "Desert Rose", in which Aki goes out to "Crashtown" with Yusei to save Kiryu, being confronted with her past which connects her with both men. And all three in the end realize that they somehow need each other to balance out their weaknesses...

what makes me so proud of this piece of artwork is that I finally managed to change my style a little bit and make it closer to the original. I have been dreaming of a little style change for so long and have realized that I need to work on poses a bit more, as well as on perspective, because these are my weaknesses.
so, this was my first step into a new style of drawing.
I hope someone likes. and I am sorry for the YuGiOh overflow. *bows down*

Lineart done with pencil, colour with PaintTool SAI. :heart:
As colours I actually used the original colour palette from the episodes. which means that I have saved all colours of Kiryu and Aki into SAI to always use them again. still, it is weird how much darker the colours actually seem to me compared with the series.. what the heck??

Very nice! I really like his face and the coloring really conjures the hazy sunlight of a hot day.

very nice love scene ^ ^
beam enhanced with the use of SAI, for the shadows you can use color but is pulling down some ability and uses a brush, if you want to blur a bit to give it another effect uses the tool "blur" and really looks good :)

well, you are right, I could have used another layer with overlay to make it all more glowing. I used blur for the shadowing, but maybe a little bit too much which might result in them having not too much shading where is could have looked better.

Thanks for the comment and for liking this picture.

thanks so much Sango! ^^ I knew you would love this. I love it too. almost cannot believe that this was drawn by my own hands, but I have the sketch in my folder on the table. :XD:
I am trying to do everything to learn how to get the styles right so I get close to the original. I am even trying something very special... dunno if I can actually show it to you here yet. ^^;
...argh, I show it to you: [link]
so, what do you say? am I making progress or am I making progress?? ;)

I am also happy of how it turned out. still, the admins of the YuGiOH Fanclub are a bit picky and do not want my art to be submitted to their club... *shrug*

Lol... why you didn't want to post it here?

Anyway, go cares about that, the point is that it's really great! I agree with you, this is one of your best drawings! You get yourself closer to orignal, but still you should try to find your own still, just keep looking for it!

I didn't want to post it here too fast because... well, I might not be able to make something as beautiful as that again, and when I post that, my watchers might want to post me similiar beautiful artwork to that one, which means a rising in my standard that I have to achieve.
and now worries, I guess I will keep my style of drawing, yet I will refine it through trying to reach something else or get close to another style. I have to just practise, and this pic certainly was a good practise.

Oh yeah, I get it... if you make a good drawing and you think that archieve that again would take some time... then the watcher would be expecting something that great or better, and if you dissapoint them... they leave, anyway, you know what? If someone does something like that, it's for the best, that means that person isn't a "real" watcher"

Well, I'm kinda saying this too often, but it's so true that you should listen it too... don't worry about your style or how do you think it is, everybody makes mistakes, and from that we learn, you just can get better and better, it will just take some time, just keep moving forward =D!

I have been putting it off because I am not sure if I will be able to produce something as good as this or better in the near future. with the comic page I showed you I am also proud, but since it belongs to a comic not yet finished, I am forced to put off submitting that one...
.........waaaah, I have even more inspiration for things like that! But no time at all, as I have important things on my mind too.

This pairing is so cute... or else it wouldn't be my OTP. :XD: Though seriously I do not know which is cuter, DivAki or KiAki. I have these crazy ideas of just throwing both pairings into one. :XD: somehow...

though, Divine wouldn't be too fond of Kiryu, would he? XD He would rip him to shreds if he even dared to come near his Aki.

thanks so much.
These two are Kiryu (the light blue haired one) and Aki (the girl) and.. well, they will live together with Yubel and Juudai in an upcoming comic I plan to make.

they are from the anime Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's. Actually, they never got to know each other in the series itself, but they are so similiar to each other that I like to pair them up even if they never had any sort of interaction.
