Saving Face by lenindcruz Saving Face by lenindcruz
Everyone wants to save their face. What happens if the wind blows it away?

I wish I had a drawing tablet, I could have done a better job of the flying open hood in the centre 'person.'

Thanks to *Tasastock for [link]
100% Inkscape 0.47 vectors.

The leafs look too much like a standard Illustrator shape to me but the main figures are fantastic. I find myself relating good artworks to CD covers and I will do it here again: this would make an awesome album cover if you remove the leafs and go for a different background.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. The fact is that the leaves were also traced from pics of real leaves but I didn't do a good enough job I guess.

The limitations of tracing from other people's photos is the reason why I stopped creating such vectors and 'trying' to work on my drawing skills. Let's see when it finally happens!

Nah they're not technically bad. Good or bad, I think I would've associated them with an Illustrator shape regardless.

This is awesome. Looks so eerie and cold yet with such warm colours in the leaves and what a good setting. I really like this.

This concept is amazing! I love it! The robes are well-designed, the leaves are cool, the floating masks... awesome. And the poses, with their hands clutching at their faces... that's great!

I don't think this is ideologically sensitive enough to need a mature content filter. You should go ahead and take it off so everyone can see! :nod:

But that is done (mature rating) for all of my works. I don't think my low views are ONLY because of that? I am not popular, so that could be another reason? And my art still has some way to go :P

Thankyou for seeing so much in the art. I suppose a lot of credit goes to the stock work, but yes, I won't ignore the share of my creativity in the end :P (such selfpraise!!!)

Well, you know what they say. "If you want a friend, you have to be a friend." I don't only watch you because I like your art - I also watch you because you leave such helpful comments in my gallery! :)

Haha, yes, I think you made very creative use of the stock. It will be interesting to see what you do when you get a tablet!

Oh, I would LOVE to show you what I will do with a tablet :D But that won't happen until I start earning doing art. I am just building up my portfolio, let's see where this goes.

Yes, you are probably my first or second DA friend. Won't forget ya! :D
