For Kichara by Umitsu For Kichara by Umitsu
done on commission for For .

Haha. I noticed, when I was doing this piece, that I don't do many intersting angles. Mostly just profiles. So I sat down for a long time trying to come up with a more dynamic layout. But no matter how hard I tried, every sketch involved not seeing something else that was going, so it would then require ANOTHER picture to show what else was happening. And um... drawing a comic is waaaay to much work to do it in this quality. Now, I COULD have drawn a picture with complex angles, if I'd drawn them fighting, but I didn't feel that was very much Smoker x Ace, and more Smoker vs Ace. I could have also done something pretty interesting, If I'd just drawn them sitting together in some sort of weird pose, as per any give manga cover/pinup. But... I dunno. Something Inside me just feels that there should always be something more to a stand alone picture.

There is no manga to this, and really, there isn't much of a story either. But I feel there is enough there to figure out a story, enough there so that you, a viewer, are naturally inclined to add in the events that led up to this moment, or the events that happen after it. If you've ever looked at any of my works, and felt you knew what was going on, based only on that ONE picture... I think that means, that somehow I succeeded. That's got to be the real measure of my art.

But I'm just babling a bunch of pretentious art crap now.
So Kichara! I hope you enjoy the picture XD

I love the way you brightened the picture with sunlight. Usually, people draw these two in dark backrounds (probably because of Ace's power). It's a cool effect to see them in the light.

Love love the lighting. I think it was a good choice of pose too. Not explicit, but obviously suggestive of something a little more than friends/enemies. ^__^ Nicely done.
