"...because the sky is blue, it makes me cry..."
That's from a Beatles song I think...
a referenced was used for the guy (I can't find a link for it though). Kudos to whoever knows who he is. Critique is welcome. Thanks for looking...
oh yeah, does anyone know what's happened to my Mudkip? It's totally gone from the spot I put him in...

Damn. I want to be able to kick out pretty pictures like that. Absolutely lovely; I like the blue sky on the black and white dude. Rather, the black and white dude on the blue sky. Either way, the shading is exquisite and it's all quite lovely.

Oh damn it..he looks out of place...so out of place...pooey. This picture fails...try again!!

I like the way you did his clothes. :)

Your mudkip seems to have been moved to the theme room if you scrool down a little.

well, I rather like the composition. I think too many people (myself included) don't vary the placement of their subject, and instead simply put it right in the center. Not that that's always a bad thing, it's just nice to see some variation. That aside, I really dig how you rendered the figure. Some of the subtle details sort of make me think of mitsu's oekakis... though you do it in your own way. The contrast of the jacket and hair to the rest of the image is especially effective. one little nitpicky thing since you did ask for critiques....I would maybe try to play up the highlights on the face, and play down the brightness of the clouds. I think they sort of take attention away from the figure. =)

Ahh. I love the contrast between the grey person and the lavender of the sky. Great composition as well.
And that the song you mentioned is absolutely wonderful.

I think it's quite beautiful, I love how it fades to black and white. And the composition in general is quite nice. :D

[And it's hyde, correct?]

Thanks everyone for the nice comments...about the hightlights in the face...haha I don't know where else I would put them... and he IS Hyde!! yay hurray for diezombiedie.

gorgeous!! i actually really like that he seems a little out of place... like he's looking at his dreams, or something. it's wonderful how he's monochrome against the sky, and the shading on his face is so delicate and beautiful.
