ageha - the fragile by 4geha ageha - the fragile by 4geha
Hello DevArt. Finally registered after years of lurking around ^^.

0.5 mechanical pencil on 65x50cm paper. Various inspirations but no ref used. Started back in 2004, and worked on it little by little. It's the only thing I drew in almost 3 years, and it's also my first serious try at a background, so any comment/critic welcome!

-"ageha" is "swallowtail butterfly" in japanese
- the white lily in her hair is a symbol of purity
- the volubilis in her hand is a symbol of lost hope
- make your own story :)

Edit: wow totally unexpected, thanks a lot for the DD. I will try to post more from now on :D

apart from your wonderful work, you have an explication. i think this is an important point to understand the artist's intention. I dare to argue that 90% of all the artists here on deviantart have none. but you :) and thats great.

Wow, this is breathtakingly beautiful. I can't imagine ever having the patience (or the talent) to create something this intricate. The perspective on the ground seems a little off, but who cares! :D

For loveless loving
You fly about this broken world
How unfortunate that it has to
Rain,
You lost your precious wings
And realize
That you can't fly
As you please
Smeared with rain, you disappear in the deep night
I'm sure I'll be able to fly off
When the May rain ends
As long as I'm with you...
MUCC - Ageha

It's been a long time since I last heard Mucc so I didn't know about this song, but it does fit the picture quite well :)

How did you get it to not smudge? Such a long time for a pencil drawing!

It's beautiful!! :heart:
the only thing I would critique is the water ripples, they need to be more circular!
But I loooove it!!

It's all just a matter of time and concentration. It actually took so much time that the texture of the paper changed before finishing it xD And you're right about the water, it's one of the parts where I didn't manage to hide my inexperience under details or shading :D

Skilled people are skilled:D damn I can't describe how much I envy you xD
I can even see where is the light coming from! O.o
I've always been wondering where does poeple get this insane amount of skill :D
I really like those sharp metal-like things swinging around. And the detail on the tree is insane!
The expression on the girl's face is filled with emotions!
This picture really trapped me looking at the monitor for 15 minutes xD
You are insane! In a pretty good way.
*Expects more works ;)*
