Just Be Friends by moyan Just Be Friends by moyan
the third girl of the haiga series, done for the love of light and shadows.

and so, of course, you'll have a haiku to go with it:

hidamari ya odoru sudare to koi no uta
in the full sunlight-
dancing curtains and love song.

reference photo is taken by ~gk-reiko.
model is the pretty ~elpheal, posing for the vocaloid MV "just be friends'.

thanks to the effort of the team. the MV is quite awesome. :)

For the comment/critique contest, december 2012:

First sorry if I can't express everthing right what I want to say but english isn't my native language.
But now let's start :D You did a great job drawing her hands simply drawing hands is difficult but in such a pose holding the guitar even more but you made it so that it looks real. That you've drawn the left hand a little bit blurry because it moves is great. I've something to say about the arm, it looks like the arm on the right is a little bit off, the left line should go off slightly more in the right ---> direction. Also the the line of the left wrist should go off a little bit smoother. The guitar is very, very good. First the light effect and the shadow of the arm are at the exactly right place also the form of the guitar looks perfect and real.
Now something to her face ;) Her smile looks amazing. It doesn't look like it was drawn it looks... real! The hair looks great because you also drew some individual hairs and didn't only drew it in lanes (is this the right word?). Another point you could improve is the left upper arm I see why you drew it darker, it's because of the shadow but I think you should've connected the different shades better because they look slightly to seperated.

As you see I don't really have to say much negative things about this drawing :) You did a great job and it looks real and it gives me... a happy feeling :> I just realized I was smiling the whole time looking at your drawing and writing the critique :). You're great artist and I had fun writing this critique. I hope you will continue drawing for a long time and also continue putting a smile on my face.
Thank you for your drawings and the happiness you gave me :)

This is “for the comment/critique contest, december 2012”

To make it even, I watch the tutorial of this picture. From that, I know how much effort you taken to finished this art. The window look really amazing. You really did a great job there even thought it look simple but it really look like a real window. Your colouring really need a dark or black colour if you want to make it realism or 3D. But if that is your stail, then just keep it up. If you still thinking of upgrading it, then you need to add a strong, basic and solid colour to it. To make it look heavy and have a volume in it. Then you are lack on lighting. Or can I say too much lighting that loose the solitry of the subject especially the hair. It look flat on the right side. The guitar body look real but the headstock lack of dark colour make it look just like that. It’s not given an impression of a feary guitar that being played of.

Next, the finger. You really did an amazing job there. The skinny finger played a guitar show some strong emotion plus her expression, you really captured people in a first sight. Well done! XD
