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

    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:
