Something that's been lying around on my computer unfinished for a long time now, probably for a very good reason. D:

There's also a good reason why I don't pain rain. :noes:

Anyway, spent an hour or so 'finishing' it. Yes, I know it sucks, don't PELT me. >_< The 'rain' is a mixture of a custom brush and painted strokes.

The awesome among you will know that's a Sigur Ros title... lacking the damned 'é'! :C

I don't know what you're talking about. I think the rain looks great. If anything, it highlights the character - as it should.

This peace has some stunning work on that rain and the way it's hitting your subject. It really does have a movement to it, in fact I can almost hear the rain and wind. Perhaps it's a subtle touch of the 'widescreen lines' that make this feel so cinematic. Plus, I'm absolutely enchanted by the gaze, mysterious, inquisitive, light, innocent but not as vulnerable...it sends a chill down my neck after a while. Great work!

I have to disagree with you about this pic sucking... It hit me so badly I had to ask a friend to send me the link to this one, so I could fave it when I get home.

I really like the rain and the atmosphere. This one is really beautiful in it's simplicity, and I don't think it needs anything more to it at all. If it had anything more, it'd be stuffed, and not so mysterious anymore. Now it is intriquing, and I'm happy you went through the pain of making the rain. I think you made an awesome job ^^
