self-love by shortfury self-love by shortfury
She's totally making out with herself HAAAA! Okay, there's more to it, but still. Bad doppelganger!

This page took me a while and there are zero background elements besides smoke fluff. I think that's actually what slowed me down. I like anchoring a character in a solid background because it makes everything look good.

=P

WHOA DAILY D! Thank you deviant art gods, and thanks for all the awesome responses!

Daily Deviation

Given 2010-10-26
The suggester says, "What a well-illustrated comic page! It has such a careful composition and a limited palette. It really gives the viewer a sense of how dangerous and seductive this 'self-love' really is."

Would that be counted as gay? I'm not sure.

This panel still blows me away... just completely on its own, no further context needed. The expressions and body language are masterful.

Definitely loving the meaning here. I love how it's a comic page style, and I think the solid background adds more dimension and gives you them to focus on more. Love it! <3

Really nice. It kinda miffs me that it's part of the LGBT club, though. I mean, that kinda takes the meaning of the entire piece and turns it into "LOL girls are kissing!". :/

Still, very nicely done, particularly the background.

Color palette is excellent.
Wonderful drawing.
And you're right the big lack of background elements puts more focus on the character herself, and it makes for a better sequence, like this.

This is beautiful, the smoke makes a wonderful atmosphere. This really makes me wonder what is going on. I wish I knew why she and herself are having issues, and what happened to her there at the end. Your style is beautiful, I love your lines, and how you arranged the panels.
