Ignorance by aiki-ame Ignorance by aiki-ame
"Innocence is white, white is empty, empty without knowledge is ignorance, ignorance is...dangerous."

Just something i wrote back a couple years ago.

Experimenting new style...i was kinda trying to practice realism again, but turned out drawing this...OTL This is more of a color/shade study than anatomy. aha I wanted to keep it free, so the energy of the brush stroke is preserved.

Something about that canvas size is a little awkward...lol

yay~ I updated my icon using this pic, hope everyone still recognise me. lol

I see that you don't get much critiques on your drawings as you request so I'll try to help (though your art is always flawless. /sobsmyartsuckscomparedtoyours)

Okay, to begin, I have to say this is very beautiful. I love that it's line less and it gives a abstract feeling. I love how you made a few feathers showing in the abstract part of this artwork and the flowers coming out of it makes it feel like, idk how to explain this but a secret garden. /shot

It's like she's holding a secret; the way she looks so innocent but then has black vines coming out of her back gives a great story. The pose you made her in goes well with everything! I love everything about this but (not to be mean but in my opinion) I'm unsure of which way her eye is directed. I'm not saying it's bad or anything, it's just that it makes her look sort of blind. omg sorry I'm horrible at this :iconsoemotionalplz:

I think it's just me though. I'm sorry for my weird thing with the eyes or something idk. .____. Sorry though but everything is really beautiful and it gives a mysterious feeling.
What do you think?

The contrast between the front of her and the back is slight but noteworthy i like how the gray in front is lighter exploiting her innocence and ignorance. Perhaps a little bit darker than the gray used for the back to go with the black? It's very striking the contrast of the white dress with the blackness of the foils of her ignorance but i love the touch of black on her sleeves. Her eyes though blind i think add a touch of how being ignorant makes her head blind. Very well done thank you very much for your art.

This is amazing and really gives off the same feeling as what you wrote about it. You conveyed it very well. I would say all the things I like about this piece, but suffice to say it would end up being everything. Somehow, it feels very perfect.

I love this picture!!! to me, it feels like this girl is leaving her innocense behind....walking away from it... Something has shattered and broken the fairytale children believe in, and she has a cold, dead stare in her eyes. she has lost the innocense of childhood, a moving into a new phase of life... She is now dangerous and beautiful and powerful....nobody will mess with her or hurt her again! She's fearless!! Amazing picture, I also love the balance of it and the combination of colors...which in themselves tell a story!!! Great job!!! :D
