Theme #14: Smile by SageStrike2 Theme #14: Smile by SageStrike2
Des- She almost never smiles...

I wanted to try something different. Ive never tried this style before and was a little apprehensive, but I found a lot of great references when it came to the color and effects, and I found a short video on youtube that gave me a lot of useful tips.

100 Theme Challenge #14
Smile

Edit: Omg, I just realized, she's wearing Chris's hoodie :3

This one is really interesting. It's different, and I like the way she smiles. Interesting view you did this in, but it looks good to me! I also love the effects.

I like how you used your character who smiles the least for this one. Just don't let the other know that it's Chris's hoodie she has on :D

what an outstanding golden work of art!! the shading that shines reflect from the sun and the way her eye gleams with a colorful sparkle thats what i like seeing from manga artists such as yourself! and the way you used that ghost technique !! to draw the wavy hair and her highlight tones gleaming with that white glow its smooths my mind knowing that how enjoyable something this totally rad is posted here online and ive to admit its good once awhile in some of your drawings such as yours iam looking at to add in a smile cause smiling is the most important thing to keeping a high positive mood every single day no matter how bad our lives is or when it someone being mean to you just forget and smile thats what keeps us motivated in life to keep doing what we do the most eat,sleep,laugh,draw,hang out with people you spent for the rest of your life such as the theaters,hit the gym, etc. anything that keeps an active mind to make you the happiest person alive the type that says "oh the hell with difficult people i got more then life to deal with whether then the ones that hurt you and just live your life like if it was your last time and laugh" and most important of all just smile. And thats what this girl in the picture should do is smile since her body language with the shining gleams of light on her body is trying to tell us and thats to be happy no one can run your life your in to control dont tell others what you cant or can do cause your in charge of your life and thats what this picture is trying to sent a message about and thats to smile! so right on you nailed the most epic drawing ever! never give up your dreams! your in control of your destiny your career your life your art skills!

Oh, wow, thank you! And I agree, life is too short to spend it sad or angry or upset. I normally try to keep an upbeat attitude towards things, and I try to express that in my art. I love drawing funny art mostly, but for works such as this I do enjoy adding a bit of serenity. I felt really happy when I finished this
