Complete Abandon by NicolasRaine Complete Abandon by NicolasRaine
The picture I drew for the Train Your Brain Contest. My main focus this time was to make sure it didn't end up too dark and I think I succeeded. It was weird not drawing Kagome and Sesshomaru again, but *shrug* fan art wasn't allowed. Super happy with the way this one turned out, though, so I can't ask for more.

I also wanted to draw another theme from my 100 challenge, so I decided to do #38: Abandonment. The idea behind this picture is that she has relinquished complete control and is instead leaving herself to fate.

100 Theme ChallengeDate Started: Thursday, April 28th, 2012
So, yesterday I came home and saw that my good friend, ~wistful-moon was coloring on her tablet. Upon closer inspection I realized she was making a picture for the first theme in the 100 theme challenge, Introduction. I watched her complete it and it really put me in the mood to draw so I was excited to hear that she was going to do another before going to sleep. So I grabbed my sketchbook and joined her. So, once again I am working on the 100 theme challenge and I will be creating all new deviations to submit for it. And, for the love of god, I WILL get through it this time. Once again I will be putting up links to any deviations I know of for people doing the challenge so if you want to participate, just let me know and I will add your submissions to my list. The rules are: You may post ANY type of creative piece for any theme in this challenge. It does not matter what (traditional, digital, sculpture, literature, etc),

Artist Notes:
Media: Sketch Paper and Derwent Medium Graphic Pencils
Time: Roughly 5 Hours

Thank you very much.
I've been abandoned (father) and I think you've captured it very well.

Thank you very much! That's the first comment I've received on the concept behind one of my pictures in quite awhile and I'm glad that you like it.
