.:LiEs:. by Jerseydevil123 .:LiEs:. by Jerseydevil123
I had originally found the plan for this drawing in particular while searching back at my old drawings done in the Realism style, and admitting how horribly done my fur was drawn. It lacked the slightest bit of realistic presence, and the only portion which held the "Realism" name of the drawing was how the character and its' anatomy was done, which needed work as well.
Upon my thoughts of this, I made a few quick searches of others works in Realism, leading me to hours of experiments with GIMP. I primarily used the Burn/Dodge tool for shading and lighting, and the smudge to put the work together. After much hard-work, what did I come out with? I decent drawing that still could use much improvement, specifically in the fur. Is it much better than my last Realism drawing? You can bet on it. ^.^
The song I used for this is "I Don't Care," Apocalyptica featuring the amazing Adam Gontier as lead singer. ^.^ I felt the drawing owned a somber yet graceful mood, which "I Don't Care" shares. Sky was the first character to come to mind; It's not a major vent to worry about. ^.^
I am vey happy with the results of this drawing, and I hope you enjoy viewing as well. ^.^

I try to make it through my life,
In my way, there's you.
I try to make it through these lies,
That's all, I do.

Just don't deny it,
Don't try to fight this.
And deal with it.
And that's just part of it.

If you were dead or still alive,
I don't care, I don't care!
Just go and leave this all behind!
'Cause I swear! (I swear!)
I don't care!


I try to make you see my side,
I always try to stay in line.
But your eyes see right through!
That's all they do!

I'm getting buried in this place,
I've got no room your in my face.
Don't say anything just go away!

If you were dead or still alive,
I don't care, I don't care!
Just go and leave this all behind!
'Cause I swear! (I swear!)
I don't care!

I'm changing everything!
'Cause You won't be there for me!
I'm changing everything!
'Cause You won't be there for me!

If you were dead or still alive,
I don't care, I don't care!
Just go and leave this all behind!
'Cause I swear! (I swear!)
I don't care!
If you were dead or still alive,
I don't care! (I don't care!), I don't care! (I don't care!)
Just go and leave this all behind!
I don't care! (I swear!) I don't care,
At all.

You know what's weird, I was thinking of doing a drawing of I Don't Care as well. Odd.

Anyways, I love this drawing, it's really detailed and realistic. Also, how do you use the burn/dodge tool? I usually just use a different shade of color for lighting.

Burn/Dodge is much neater to use on GIMP rather than a new shade entirely. Burn will darken the color, and Dodge will lighten your color. Depending on the brush strokes you choose, the shade of the Lighting/Shading will be different.(Ex. Midtones, Highlights, Shadows.)
If we've got time, I'll show you later. ^.^

Anyhow, thanks for the compliments! :hug:
