When Did This Storm Begin by MylaFox When Did This Storm Begin by MylaFox

This is the first day
Of the rest of our lives
'Cause no one truly lives or dies

~ Shiny Toy Guns - When Did This Storm Begin [link]


Whoa, guys. Guys, whoa... I was feeling down lately, and this image formed in my head. I like the way it turned out. I was trying to capture a certain essence, and I believe I was successful this time around. It's simple, but really makes me feel something.

Hi there, and thank you so much for the kind compliments. For this piece, I remember painting loosely on and off over the course of a couple of days.

They do, because the water is polluted! D: That's why Tak is protected from within a cave entrance. c:

Yeah Invader Zim is pretty cool, but what I really like is your first Daily Deviation, the one with Knuckles. Why are comments on it disabled?

MylaFox Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
Oh, thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed that piece. Ironically, I never was too fond of it myself. Funny how that goes!

I actually disable comments on my older work to keep my inbox fresh, if that makes any sense. It's nothing against the work in question, I just want more up-to-date comments on my more recent art.

That is actually a great idea. I never would have thought of that, but then again I never needed to. When I was here a half year ago (I was on here for a year and a half before I deactivated my account and had to make this new one 4 months later) people didn't typically comment on my old works. Then again I didn't get many comments. Ah well I guess I'm just not at that level yet. I'll get there :)

TAAAAAAAAAAAAK! Much love for for her. She looks so distant and alone. One of those rare times when she isn't in vengeance mode and reflecting on her sad life. Beautiful picture.
