I'd rather stay awake by Thiefoworld I'd rather stay awake by Thiefoworld
    You would not believe your eyes
    If ten million fireflies
    Lit up the world as I fell asleep
    Cause they'd fill the open air
    And leave tear drops everywhere
    You'd think me rude but I would just stand and
    Stare

    I'd like to make myself believe
    That planet Earth turns, slowly
    It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
    Cause everything is never as it seems


Funny thing inspiration is. I had the idea for this drawing today in the morning and something like 14 hours later I finished it XD Long time ago I don't start and finish a drawing the very same day. Long time ago I don't feel so inspired either.

I found inspiration for this one while listening to Fireflies by Owl City. I must say I'm not a big fan of electropop... but that may change 'cause Owl City's album Ocean Eyes is delicious! I've been listening to it the freakin' whole day. No kiddin'.

Yes I was trying a couple of new things, firstly I'm trying to develope a non so chibi style, not that I'll change it, but I want to learn how to make.. normal people XD I'm not there yet tho I know. Secondly, I'm learning how to use SAI, this was inked there, then colored in Photoshop 'cause I still have no patience to do it in SAI hah!

This is some sort of selfportrait and I'm planning to use it as the cover of an artbook I'm trying to get together. Hopefully for the Concomics. And oh yes! That's cat Luis! long time I don't draw him :heart: Thiefo's imaginary pet.

If you are wondering which song is Thiefo listening to with his big headphones, is Hello Seattle :music:

Bien dicen que cuando uno esta inspirado nadie lo para.

En mi caso hay veces que dejo de hacer lo que tengo que hacer (como tarea o estudiar coff coff) por que me entra la inspiracion..... o.0
Joo o dibujar en clases jajaja

Te quedo arto muy freshe!, osea, chingon.

Seguire insistiendo en que me gusta el estilo y colores que manejas, para mi punto de vista es muy dificil tener un estilo taaaan personal como el tuyo..
Hay unos que se save de quien son, pero no quita que esten dentro de un estilo o tipo de animacion determinado, en tu caso no pasa eso xD
O almenos no he visto nada parecido...

un dia de estos sacate un dibujo echo con colores pastel 0.o No es que me encanten, deecho casi no me gustan xD pero seria divertido ver como los manejas, creo k estoy acostumbrada a verte usar colores "fuertes" por decirle de algun modo....


Soy tu fantssssssssss!

Even your non-chibi stuff is cute. XD I like it a lot. The only thing that throws me off is how the rope kinda cuts off on the left side. It was kinda distracting at first, and then I got tired of being distracted. XD

Still awesome, though! c:
