So...I found this online photo editing program that had me wasting plenty of hours messing around with my backgroundless images, and find this too perfect not to post. My desire to do the original background I had in mind vanished once I came up with these 2 renderings of this picture, and I find I seem to favor this the most. It fits so perfectly and compliments the colors so well and has that grungy feel that appeals to me. So I am replacing the W.I.P. with this as a final draft
Maybe I will add a background to the original later....maybe I won't.

I cant even count the number of nights I wished tomorrow wouldn't come
Without love or dreams beaten by the rain
Crying crying crying crying
To live just how I am now without changing
what is it I need
If you cant even believe in yourself what are you supposed to believe in
The answers too close I cant see it
Black tears flow
inside of me and there's nothing else just sadness
I cant even put it in words
my whole body is releasing pain
and I cant face it all on my own

I have fallen in love...and have been heartbroken...by that anime.
Its no secret I have been in a bit of an art crisis that is not wood burning related. I have been trying for quite some time to just...draw....and its been so hard. The curse of doing two different mediums that are so time consuming!!! I might have to take a break from the burnings for a while which means I will hopefully be able to focus more on drawing.
This was for fun. Pure fun. But....This is the 2nd time I have drawn my J-rocker in a more serious light....and I gotta say....I am falling in love with her too
Really the only reason I did this pic was because I just wanted to draw and color hair, that is my favorite part of drawing a character, is their hair and it just ended up adding on to itself as it went. I added the lotus tattoo in there at the last minute because her arm was just so bare and it just fit so perfectly.....I plan to get that tattoo myself but on my wrist!!! SOOOO EXCITED!
Anyways, its still just a W.I.P. because I am....wait for it.....wait for it.....going to add a background!!!! OMG!
Well...it won't be anything spectacular and detailed. I want to keep it simple because I don't want any kind of distractions from her. So I decided maybe rays of light with different shades of purple, to kinda give the feel of concert lights. But I was so excited about this that I just wanted to share <3
