Run! by Toradh Run! by Toradh
7 down, 4 more to go.

That’s the last illustration for now. I guess most of them don’t work without the story anyway.

Watercolour with bits of salt. The scene ought to be pitch black but I wanted to meddle with greyish watercolour blobs, so I did. I even used black watercolour which I haven’t done for years. But in this case, I think it’s perfectly fine to have dull grey in the background. Exceptions make the rules.

I made it available as a pdf ([link], and also as a print ([link], but there's no German translation, so I don't know how interesting it is to non-German speakers ;).

Sorry for that. But there are too few people interested in it to make a translation worthwhile, especially because an English version would be much worse than the German one – I'm not a native English speaker, after all.
But I'll try to keep most of my stuff bilingual.

Schöne Bildkomposition. Sehr schöne Farbgebung. Hat ein bisschen was von Orpheus und Eurydike.
Nettes kleines Detail: Ich liebe die züchtige Haltung ihres rechten Unterarmes ;-)
... und das Salz scheint auch seinen Job getan zu haben ;-)

Mit Orpheus und Eurydike bist du sehr nah dran ;).

Ich bin sehr gut darin, rein zufällig vorteilhafte Posen zu zeichnen, damit ich mir die nudity warnings bei devART sparen kann :D.

It does remind me of the adam and eve running in assassins creed. Mainly because it's a male and female running in the nude.

It has nothing to do with Adam and Eve and nothing with Assassin’s Creed, but I see your point ;).

Right now, I think so, too. I hate days when I leave home in the dark and return in the dark. University sucks sometimes.

I think it was a great decision. I like how the colours suggest darkness. And -especially- the light and dark on his torso.

Which was quite fun to do, so I think it’s fine if I don’t adhere to what I wrote myself :D (there shouldn’t be the slightest bit of light here). Artistic liberties.

Artistic liberties for the win. And I watch all these attentively, since I haven't forgotten you (though it seems like I have, I know!).

Don't worry, I take it from your comments that you haven’t ;).
It's quite a nice feeling to have some people who faithfully comment on most or even all of your deviations.
The workshops were awesome anyway, but this way, they even have longlasting benefit.
