Lantern by Zennore Lantern by Zennore
Character: Valerie

It is rare that I am successful in drawing backgrounds. While Valerie took me a few minutes to finish, the background took me hours of work. This is one of the morning scenes of Disorder: Doors. There's suppose to be a hint of snow in the scene, but I guess I'll just have to do better next time.

And the lantern looks really pretty too. I dreamed that I had to wear a paper lantern if I wanted to save myself from suffocation. >>;

ANYWAY, the background looks lovely, Zenny! ^^ And Valerie looks really pretty. The whole image looks like it can be used for a desktop background :o

It is my desktop background. XD In fact, it was because I thought to myself that I needed a new desktop background, that inspired me to draw it. And wow, a paper lantern to save yourself? O_o How interesting.

Your background looks really awesome, I'm really bad at backgrounds.
I really like how you did this really beautiful.

This would make a beautiful wallpaper, and it has this *winter* vibe to it, I guess because Door's world is so cold. I really like how delicate it is, how the black and the stamp-like details around Valérie sort of flows with the background. It's really gorgeous.

Now for something constructive, I think if I was to modify something in the whole picture, I'd put more details ont he lantern. It's a little bit too flat to be on the first plan. Like a bit more details about the content reflection or the whole fabric over it. And it'd make a nice contrast with the whole background who is just... so pretty yet vrey sketched (I love your backgrounds, I never tell you enough of this!)

So yeah, fav fav fav!!!

Yeah, I was going to add more details and stuff...But it was getting late and all. I started to get tired, so whatever I do, it was not working, and it made the drawing looked kind of out of focus. But yeah, I can understand what you are saying. I'll try to update that when I have the time, or the next time I draw stuff. :)
