Lithium by AkiAmeko Lithium by AkiAmeko
:blackrose::blackrose::blackrose:
"Lithium"

Lithium, don't want to lock me up inside.
Lithium, don't want to forget how it feels without...
Lithium, I want to stay in love with my sorrow.
Oh, but God, I want to let it go.

Come to bed, don't make me sleep alone.
Couldn't hide the emptiness, you let it show.
Never wanted it to be so cold.
Just didn't drink enough to say you love me.

I can't hold on to me,
Wonder what's wrong with me.

Lithium, don't want to lock me up inside.
Lithium, don't want to forget how it feels without...
Lithium, I want to stay in love with my sorrow.

Don't want to let it lay me down this time.
Drown my will to fly.
Here in the darkness I know myself.
Can't break free until I let it go.
Let me go.

Darling, I forgive you after all.
Anything is better than to be alone.
And in the end I guess I had to fall.
Always find my place among the ashes.

I can't hold on to me,
Wonder what's wrong with me.

Lithium, don't want to lock me up inside.
Lithium, don't want to forget how it feels without...
Lithium, ...stay in love with you.
I'm gonna let it go.

"Lithium" by Evanescence
Lyrics found here.
Music Video found here.

---

So...been inspired by a lot of Evanescence lately, obviously. This song is one of my favorites, as well as it being my favorite music video of Evanescence's. It is sooooo lovely. :heart:

NOTE: INSPIRED by the song and incorporated some elements of the video, but NOT meant to be an exact copy. HECK YES I TOOK ARTISTIC LIBERTIES.

Been upping my supply of copic markers, yay me! :D I recently bought a ton of blues and wanted to do a very blue picture. Here we go. :XD:

Trying some new techniques here too... I find I don't really like leaving white space for a highlight with dark hair, so I tried gel pen over it... Turned out ok, but I think I may try something different next time.

ANOTOMY ISSUES!! Aki's head looks too big and her legs lok too chubby. DX I think her hand is the right size though!! I made my sister model for me so I could get that arm to look right. >w>;; And her mouth came out weird. DX *COMPLAIN*

FYI on the character herself... Skintone and hair color were changed slightly for this picture. Aki's hair is usually redder and her skin usually healthier/less emo looking. Yay for color bending!

The flowers were fun to color!! Actually just about everything was... And then I ran out of my baby blue and COULDN'T FINISH IT FOR A FEW WEEKS OMG UNTIL I GOT A NEW ONE. DX (Can't find replacement ink around here... And I have to travel out of town for Copics... >w>;; ) BUT IT'S FINALLY DONE, ENJOY!

CRITIQUE ME! HELP ME GROW PLZKTHX!

</rambles>

The whole idea of the picture and the use of colors is awesome. She's a bit disproportioned and her feet look really funny but other than that the attention to detail is as amazing as ever. :p

You're getting better at wings~
