Requiem for the Living by Capukat Requiem for the Living by Capukat
Ah dead tired dead tired XD
I have no idea where the title came from but it just popped out of my half-awake brain.

This was meant to be a little drawing for a 'feel better' type of thing, but as usual, it got more detailed XD Ahh.....I just can't help myself!!
I would've continued with it but I have to sleep because it's midnight... and I actually like the sketchy and painted look of this. I've been developing a more loose style over the 2 years I feel.. I started off rather restricted by the linework and such and after going back and forth, I'm starting to realize I really like just being more free and loose and whimsical in a sense haha!

The irony of course that my previous account, of which I was on for about 2 months, ~Whimsy11 has the word 'Whimsy' in it! Ah xD

Why am I getting off topic..
Regardless, I'm not even sure how this turned out frankly speaking. Too tired to really observe this from an artistic viewpoint (and too sleepy to speak english..zz..)

I do like it enough to submit it to my main gallery though! I started off with a more blue color scheme but I definitely like this earthy sort of twist to it :3
(I've been working on color theory recently :la:)

Alright well I need to sleep before I stay awake due to the constant pangs of hunger I get at this time.

But ah right. This is Shard, for *Dracorum-Order..
I hope you feel better, Mike. 
(And I hope you like this-- I'm also hoping you don't mind I took some artistic license with his collar)
You're a great friend and I'd hate to see you upset. Stay optimistic! 2014 has yet to come and surprise you with whatever it may hold :dummy:

Alright guys, I'm off XD
Enjoy!

DRAW ON!

Thanks so much for drawing Shard. This certainly changed my mood completely the following day. It was a great surprise. Loving the brush strokes gone into Shard and the background. They add depth and texture to the piece. I also like the look of confidence you gave him. I certainly don't mind the bit of artistic licence that went into the collar - it adds more realism.

Very captivating, and yes, the "loose" style does indeed make it much better-looking. I only hope that one day I'll be capable of something similar, but for the time being, very nice work! I hope by now you've gotten plenty of sleep.

I like that the title is sort of an oxymoron, and I also like it because requiem is one of my favorite words.

Nice drawing!
