Subway Noise by paintpixel Subway Noise by paintpixel
So, this was inspired by my trips to NYAF :3 She just got off the subway and someone is trying to talk to her, but she has to take out her ear plugs so she can hear ^^;
...I worked so long on the background, and then I have to go and blur to make it look like it's moving :B

edit: I changed the skirt and hair a little bit to make it look like it's in motion more.

She's pretty! You did a great job! I wish we had the rl version to compare it to, but I'm sure it would look exactly like her! Keep it up!

I like the way you play with the light and the shadow. It's something I watch carefully. I can't draw but I really appreciate good work and urs is really really good, really XD

Well, keep the good work.

Oh, and, I absolutely LOVE her eye color. That gorgeous piercing blue... I have contacts that make my eyes almost that color. It always freaks people out when I wear them though. :) I wouldn't change a thing with them. They're the prettiest eyes I've seen on an anime style girl in a long time! :)

You did an amazing job. For taking so long on the background, I think that it really paid off. It looks real and you did such a great job! :)
I really like the idea too. That just happened to me the other day, someone started talking to me and I had to rip out my ear buds. :) hehe. Great job as always! Love your work!!!

This is cool. Makes me think of all the times I had to do something similar at subways and bus stops.

awww, why don't you show off the train at least in some way, either with a version of it without the blur or maybe a link to the background (no girl) without it being blurred.

I always enjoy your backgrounds and if you spent a lot of time on it I would certainly like to see it.

Either way, this is still a nice image. C:

Hmmm, I can't decide which version I like more. However, the background if very nice. I can certainly see why you would be a bit disappointed that you had to blur it.
Thanks a lot for putting it up so I could see it :)

*blink* Is it just me or has your coloring style changed a bit?

Just experimenting; I usually try a few new things with my original stuff :B
The coloring style is basically how I normally work, except I used Painter Tool SAI instead of just Photoshop (with a few added textures). It actually kind of reminds me of my first attempts at coloring when I use Corel Painter 6; I think SAI is very similar ^^;

Ah okay! Well, I should have said this initially but the picture is absolutely beautiful. It's awesome to see great artists do fanwork but I like their original works too even though they don't get faved/commented on as much.
