-First Day of my Life- by HennaLucas -First Day of my Life- by HennaLucas
Can I please get some commentary on this? I worked incredibly hard on it.

---

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don't know where I am
I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I'd let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize how I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you'd just woke up
And you said "this is the first day of my life
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you
But now I don't care I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy"

So if you want to be with me
With these things there's no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me.

First Day of my Life - Bright Eyes

God, I love that song. And this art. I don't even know the story of these two yet and I have fallen in love with them. Is there a story?

I really, really love this. I like the color scheme too. It's comforting and goes along with the song. I'm interested in the backstory though. However, you chose a wonderful lyric to go with it.

Commentary other than "I love them"? Hmm....This does mean on the story, right? I do wonder about Holly, because we don't really know a lot about her so far. Like family-friend-school-childhood info. But then again, I hardly know any of the story yet. As for the artwork, it's very sweet. Question: Did they really have those portable oxygen tanks? Either way, it's kind of cool. But I wouldn't really want one, if you know what I mean....

Thank you! And I try to show, not tell- her bg info will make itself known eventually, but I try not to bombard the readers with too much backstory all at one. And I know that portable "scuba" tanks were invented in 1876, though I'm going to ask my great aunt, who was a nurse in the 50s and 60s, whether the were used in hospital settings.

And yeah, backstory all at once is never a good thing; I need to work on that ^^'

Your style is so beautiful and unique, but do you ever think of drawing with more crisp lines? I feel like the details of their faces get muddled in the blurriness of the lines. It's a great piece!

I mostly looked at old 1950-60s winter photos as well as online vintage/consignment stores

And TMITD is in a bit of a rut right now- I'm kind of stuck :(

this is a really sweet piece of yours. the dark and natural colours and the looks at each other are so cute. what makes it sweeter is she looks a little odd and quirky but he's got the gas bottle, sickness :(
I really enjoy this one and can't stop staring at it
as aways good job

What a coincidence, this is the song (one of them at least) for my book that I'm working on XD (great minds think alike!)

I think this was very well exicuted, and the placement of everything is perfect.
