Daily Deviation

Given 2014-09-07
ryuloulou comments on themes of isolation and rejection in addition to the very nature of these things having close association to their reverses. Often, loneliness is a vehicle for even the most socially displaced individuals to forge a passage wherein finding value in their secluded, secret selves. It's through introspection that we discover our truly unique oddities that are certainly super.

The suggester says, "I'm still waiting for my superhero" only let us never look outside ourselves for happiness; Antibully2wip5 communicates this sentiment well, with a character who may indeed be gazing at herself - her inner superhero. ( Suggested by psoty and Featured by puddlefishie )

Great picture! I like the coloring and the lines are so crisp! It feels like an autumn day.

I just wish there was a companion piece with all the folks playing together.

You know after people stop being mean.

i love the colors and the only reason i clicked on it because it was at the bottom of my screen so it was quite small and it was as if the one standing green hair seemed shorted so i thought it was a guy so it made me think of a bbrae photo but then it wasn't but i still love it and could you imagine if it was bb and raven there instead so sweet of bb to make raven feel not left out aww.

Being alone is so hard and you think the whole world is against you. Sometimes you need someone support and that person is a hero. Nicely done and well said.

Why is that they never put any description in the most amazing and meaningful art?

The answer is simple, really. That's because I am short on time ^^
 To answer your questions : Marvel was launching an anti bullying event and hired me to do this one. The theme of the girl conforted by Gamora was suggested by the editor.
What I wanted to show was more finding confort through connexion and understanding than confrontation with the bullies. As I have been a very introverted child, I always found very hard to connect with people my age and that was what lead to this picture If I had had a bit more time, I might have add a few sci fi books on the floor :)
The fact that you cannot see the face of the girl was a way to have the readers project themselves and their own experience and emotions in her.
As that cover arrived the same week as 3 other covers, I had a very limited amount of time to do it. I took 2 days.. The red of the tree helps to fill the place nicely. It is not a very complicated shape and the color is mostly flat. Red is always a very effective way to make a picture powerfull. I used the same red in small touches here and there on the picture and used a general shading more blue / green to sharpen the contrast.
To help the picture being dynamic and easy to read I put most of the important parts on a tilted line.
I guess that's it .
Hope this helps.

I think many of us introverts can see ourselves in this girl. As someone who has always been a "loner", isolated from the group, I have often turned to works of fiction and fantasy for company and solace. You illustrated this idea so perfectly. amazing work!!

There's a lot of beauty, despite the leaves laying dead around. They remain colorful, and the skies beyond appear light with much grace and hope. The shading is amazing, especially how its matched against the lighting. The title also sparks the interests of all, an amazing deviation.
