The Graveyard By The House - I’m so happy this is finished :D It’s the first personal image I’ve worked on since the Bird Band that I’ve been really excited to do!
So… yeah this is a weird one for me as I love this song and thing it’s super romantic and it makes me really happy to have someone. And I hadn’t originally intended the girl to look like me. But I’m sure many of you drawers out there find it super easy to draw yourself because obviously you see yourself loads and so in terms of converting that to an image, it’s pretty easy to just do it from memory or a mirror. The only problem was I couldn’t get the guy to look like Andy :I It’s close enough except I couldn’t get facial hair to look right and I also didn’t give either of us glasses as I think it would have been an unnecessary detail.
Either way I’m really pleased with how this turned out and I think I rather outdid myself :3 I hope you agree!
EDIT: After getting some feedback on reddit, I reworked the image a little.
-The main comment I was getting that the text was completely clear. Only one or two people actually offered a suggestion why that may be but either way, it seemed the banners and positioning made it awkward to read.
-Secondly, someone commented on the feet, as my hands were quite detailed, it looked odd to have such plain, simplified feet. I’m actually super glad someone called me out on it because I do that sort of thing a lot instead of dealing with the problem and no one ever called me out. Unfortunately I’ve lost the will to work too much more on this and i know I suck at feet, also if I did them the same way I did the hands they’re look gross. So I took the cowards way out and gave them shoes.
