Why won't you fight back by shilin Why won't you fight back by shilin
Updated version of an old scrap, not much difference really, I did this when I tried to maybe find a way to make scraps a bit more finished without consuming too much time, but it came out bland ): maybe I'll redraw it in the future because I liked the sketch a lot!

I think its "blandness" adds to the mood even more, its a faded effect that makes the whole picture feel more ominous.  In my opinion.

I love this piece. It seems very different....
You think it's bland, but I think it's mysterious, like a dramatic scene in a movie, though I can see what you'd mean. I wouldn't recommend you touch any lighted part of the scene, but I suppose, if you feel it needs something more, I'd recommend just painting in a dimly lit suggestion of roof shingles (I see them as being on a roof) in the black area. :shrug:

Agreed with many people below--'bland' is the last word I would use to describe this. I love the perspective. The rain and (lack of) color scheme add an incredible emotional atmosphere.

Bland? What about this is bland? O_O The "dull" coloring adds to the high strung emotion... it's so beautifully sad

You know... I like the colors, the light, the composition... I wouldn't call it bland.  There's a lot of high emotion here.  It looks like a night scene, and that would be more desaturated.

I know it isn't my business to tell you how to do things, but after you said you might redraw it I thought a bit and began to wonder: if you put something that Blackbird lost during the fight, something recognizably hers (like a sword, her scarf, or her winged amulet?) in the extreme foreground it'd emphasize the "not fighting back" aspect.  She'd have lost her tools and was turned away, not caring to even try and get them back.  Just a bit of a random thought.

Even if you never, ever, ever redraw it, I think it'd be a fantastic addition to your next artbook!  It makes me want to read the story just to see what will happen!
