Humph. It's raining. I don't like the rain. Hmm, why not? I always feel sad when it rains... I've always liked the rain. It's refreshing and calming somehow. ... Hey, promise me something? Sure. Come to me when it rains. [smiles] Of course.
. . .
Years have passed and even though I know he's gone, I still find myself hoping for rain.
That was just a little story I was thinking of while working on this piece.
This is a little different from my usual style, but I recently rented 5 Centimeters Per Second and found Makoto Shinkai's work incredibly inspiring. The film was down right beautiful, even though it was a sad story overall. But let's face it, those are the types of stories I like the most.
Hence, this piece is a small homage to that great film. I hope that in a small way, it captured the spirit of Makoto Shinkai's work.
(Pattern on the umbrella was from a notebook I scanned in. Small edit to bump up the contrast and add an anime-esque snazzy lens flare )
I absolutely loved 5 centimetres per second, it was so moving and it's got to be one of the most beautiful and inspritional films I've seen. I think this image gives off some of emotions and it's theme very well since it looks a bit dreamlike and it's a unique kind of image that matches a sweet story you made. Great job and I'm glad some more people have watched that lovely movie =]
I love this! Honestly, it reminds me of myself...except I would not have an umbrella. I love the rain...meant the pose. I always find the rain calming and refreshing, too. Maybe I should move to Seattle. Anyway, love the colors and everything about this. One of your best, in my opinion. Good luck!
This is gorgeous, and yes sad stories are best. Can I confess something...when I read the title I kind of thought Orihime (yes I know I'm a Bleach-tard, you know they say guys think about sex every 6 seconds? Well I think about Bleach XD) just as her hair is orange. It looked like it meant she wants a chance with Ichigo so she's hoping the rain will start again so she has a chance to stop it (I've corrupted your work please feel free to throw things at me) I would say I just like one thing in particular but its all beautiful. The hair, the folds in the dress, the design of the dress, the grass, the clouds, the hands, the sky, the sun. Its lovely all over Ooh novella comment for you
