Crying in the Rain - May EMTC by Mirz123 Crying in the Rain - May EMTC by Mirz123
My entry for the May EMTC. Theme is: Rain [link]

Another contest without a chance to win. *sigh*

Anyhow, I have been thinking a lot about this lately--particularly as I've been quite emotional and crying a bit. It always seems better/easier to cry when you're in the rain, because it's harder for others to notice.

New style of doing the tree since I wanted something a bit different for this piece. Grass is my stock. Thanks to *Ravenswd for his help on the rain.

This is such a tender image, I love it. I actually really like the slow-falling rain. It seems appropriate.

I love how you shaded the tree, and the way the raindrops are falling at different speeds is so very nice.

This is beautiful in so many ways, the most important being that something like this has happened to me in the past.

I'm sorry by the way for not having been in the Chat for a while, life has kept me busy on a number of uncomfortable things :(

Instead of crying and wasting my time to figure out a cure, I rather sing in the rain! :sing: :dummy:

I like this piece, though it has a sad theme. Especially the work on the tree is great!
I have a lil' suggestion though: The rain looks alot more like snow, since it's falling so slowly. That rather suggests the rain is somewhat floating, like snow flakes. But if you think about rain, it rather falls fast and hard on the ground... ;)

Thank you. Yes, someone else pointed that out, too. However, this was deliberately. I wanted to make it slow to set the very sad mood. I realize this heavy of a rain would fall harder, but there are rains that are rather slow. So I kinda went in the middle. Perhaps, this is how the rain seems to that little emote crying.

Much appreciate your feedback.

I understand what you mean, but somehow, even with this knowledge, the rain bugs me somewhat... I see you chose different colours for the rain, supposedly to create depth. So maybe it's the rather white rain drops in the foreground that confuse me... Anyway, good work!
You're most welcome, dear.
