A pic of Veloce filled with a whole pack of in-your-face symbolism with a deceitful title as topping. Originally I was gonna draw a pic of her sleeping comfortably in a NORMAL room on a NORMAL sofa with NORMAL surroundings, perhaps amist my overused bookshelves, with a night-blue shade and window silhouette falling on her. Something serene.

...Then something happened and this pyromaniacal picture came into being.

It looked so much cooler when I was drawing it ): then I scaled it down and now it looks mediocre. Nonetheless I shall proceed as planned and exclaim to the world: I was so happy about drawing this picture, it felt like the best picture I've ever drawn because I changed the procedure I used to draw the picture. I enjoyed the whole process. I hope you like it as much as I do.

I think it actually looks pretty cool. It makes your mind wonder what kind of situation she's in...

(also surprised this was a girl)

Something about this picture makes it feel so different, maybe the atmosphere, but probably the composition - I haven't seen too many pictures on DA that obscure the central character like this (in the dark, with objects in the foreground). It's almost like the setting is more important than the character. Very nice.

:wow: This is amazing. Did you complete this in PSPro? I have a question and I hope that you not mind answering it. How did you create this? Did you first draw the picture and then add colour or what? How do you get the candles like they are alive? I have nothing in PSPro that will accomplish something like this. I am hopeless at it.

Sorry to bother you with all these questions.

I'm still in shock at just the colours and lighting.
And then I start looking at the composition.
And all the teensy details.
And I'm completely in love with this piece.
