Awwww. If that were true, there wouldn't be such a high suicide rate among artists.

No, it's a curse sometimes. There's this constant pressure to make sure that every piece you do is your best ever - or at least no worse than your last one.

Having to constantly outdo yourself is really really hard to live with. -_-

Thank you!
I'm really proud of this one, too. It was so hard to come up with that expression. I think it took me about two hours just to get the sketch of his eyes right.

Oh, that's just lovely. I love the colors and the smoke. It seems to jump out of the page at you.

^_^ Thank you!

You know, I was working on that and working on that, and it wasn't until I put the dark brown (should I call it "fruitcake brown"?) behind the lamp that it really started to pop!

YAY! Thank you!

I'm really chuffed that it turned out so nice! And yeah, the colors - I think I want to use this color combination more often. :D

I, too, love all the rich colors. The luminous skin tones are gorgeous, as well.

Thanks! There's actually metallic gold in the arm bands, the trim on his vest, and the lamp. I really wish that would scan better. -_-

Thanks! Yeah, it took me forever to get the expression right. I think I was sketching it out for about two hours to get it right.

Sometimes human expressions are a lot more complex than we think at first.

I'm always in awe of artists, because I can write these things, but drawing them seems incredibly complex.

Some day, when I have a bit more money, I'll commission something from you.

*hugs wistful Harry* You've captured so much in his face and his posture that I just love! Thanks again, sweetie, for this! I can't wait to have him gracing my hot little hands home!

I'm so chuffed you like it! Seriously, this image wouldn't let me go once I started it, and then I was worried 'cause I got some of the details wrong.

But his expression is right. And I think the age and the body language.

^_^ The more the marrier, eh?

Funny how sometimes my Harry looks kind of like a Rufus with glasses. :P

If you could track my eyes when I look at this drawing, first I go to his tousled hair, and then directly to the little trail disappearing into his waistband (hehe) and then up to his beseeching expression. Then I just let my eyes travel around the edges of the page to take in all those lovely washes of color. Beautiful job on this, Rana. You already know I'm not that crazy about Harry, but this? Guh.

he's just lovely, swimming up at me like that.
I love the chest medallion, his hand gesture, and wistful sweet expression.
Beautiful!

This is lovely (as of course is the fic that inspired it!).
The lovely, melting background is especially nice!
