I have to say, I REALLY like this piece. The concept is nice, especially with your interpretation of a journey, is lovely. The art is beautiful with the warm colors that sort of make you feel warm inside yourself ^w^

I like the style you have here, and you can see the boy's clothes flowing in the wind, and it's lovely how the sun shines on them, and personally, I think it looks pretty realistic.

The overall vision, personally I think, came together nicely. And, as I pointed out, your technique is great.

Keep drawing, and I think I might take a look in your gallery :heart:

I seem to notice small things, and what caught my eye first was the teal sliding down the boy's cheek. This made me tilt my head. What was he crying about on such a beautiful day? Then I noticed how his mouth curves up slightly, which made me realize the fact that he was smiling slightly. And that's when I noticed the girl's missing legs. It seems like what would be something someone would notice right away, but apparently not me. Then I really thought about the piece. My interpretation of this piece is simply this:

To me, this stunning artwork is about a lovely girl who lost her legs. She always was the type for adventure. Her boyfriend had been with her since before the accident that took her legs, but was faithful and stayed with her even after the accident. He noticed she was still hopeful, despite her condition. So he bought this two person bicycle to take her on a ride. He helped her onto the back, but she protested. She wanted to help, even if she couldn't pedal. So he let her steer. The look of sheer excitement and joy causes the boy to tear up, and he smiles at the sun as he hears her laugh.

I know I'm not the best writer, but I really wanted to share this. This piece is very emotional and it makes me think of how rewarding it is to make other people happy.

So thank you so much for your artwork. I hope you never stop! :D

I'm not a good critique. So I'll get straight to the point: I never seen a piece of art that makes me feels this way. You done an awesome job and I don't even know if "awesome" is a good enough word. Your art is lovely, charming and carry on a very strong emotion. People say that pictures worth a thousand words, well this one worth a million and they're probably the most beautiful words that humanity can imagine. Long live to this kind of feelings. :love:
