When The Sun Sleeps


So, I was inspired by Kiriko Nananan's drawing, high contrast, minimally detailed drawings. Her characters are almost all contour line drawings, very little detail lines are to be found within the unvarying outlines. Solid areas of black and the occasional grey ziptone is used to add contrast and tonal impact, usually in the form of hair or clothes. The characters’ faces often appear strange when viewed from the front because of the way she draws noses as just a shadow at the bottom. Her drawings are completely simple yet cannot erase its beauty.

As for my drawing I tried to apply minimally coloured (black, grey or even white), but pink was so tempting for accent so I used it eventually. It was actually based on the original photo that Cindy had. It was so beautiful. So, I had an urge to draw it and she really liked it :D
"I thought you'd come back at least i prayed (so i prayed)
the romance has been dead (the romance is dead, the romance is dead)
for years (you come back)
but i've been too afraid to dig the grave (so i prayed)
relief support never came

memories carry me through the day

of when we were kids
and angels came to watch us play

close my eyes, just for tonight

the sun still sleeps, and when she wakes
close my eyes, just for tonight
the sun still sleeps, and when she wakes

a movie that plays in my mind

remembering you helps me survive
every day a re-run of the next
i promised to stay by your side
that all would change, i can't complain
another victim of the game
*****
maybe love will FIND us again
for there is always tomorrow
sincerely till the end
close my eyes just for tonight
the sun still sleeps and when she wakes,
close my eyes just for tonight
the sun still sleeps and when she wakes

*****
you'll be a memory (be a memory)"
