Jewel in the Sand by AkiAmeko Jewel in the Sand by AkiAmeko
All my life
I dig through the sand
to try and find
that one jewel
just for me

Will I find you
Among the
Sand?


:heart:

Yep, tis a metaphorical piece about the search for one's 'soul mate'... I was thinking one day that it was like trying to find a needle in a haystack....yet it's something much more precious. So, more appropriately, a jewel in the sand.

I can't believe how fast I was able to get this done... Just a few hours! Spent most of the day on it, but only one day! It amazes me what I can do with the tablet and Photoshop now. :love: I FEEL ARTEESTIC OMG YAY. :iconimhappyplz:

Sand doesn't look as good as I'd like it to though... But I was too lazy to go and work on it more. XP Do you people get that she's lying down in the sand? Ok. Good. (LOL I'M ASSUMING)

And yes, Aki is my model as she always is, but I didn't include the elfy ears because for all points and purposes here this piece is more about the concept than the character, and elven ears would destract away from the main point. It coud really be anyone there... I just used Aki is all. :B

Hope ya'll like! :heart:

kinda reminds me of a shard of the shikon jewel from Inuyasha.

Hehe, indeed it does! I wasn't really thinking of that though. ^^; But I still think it's an appropriate comparison. :)

I like this very much. She's beautiful. And I like the "Jewel in the sand." This wasn't by any chance inspired by that "soul mate trapped in an emerald" piece I showed you, was it? *laughs*

Nope. I sketched this one out at least a month ago, probably more... So this one's been mulling around in my head and I only just now got around to coloring it. :3
