Meeting place by Hokage3 Meeting place by Hokage3
Meeting Place

Feature Class

It was a weekend, a very fine day. I woke up early to ready myself, for this day may be a long one. It is still clear on my memory, the words he said before we part ways, that he wants to say something to me, which he couldnít express easily. He gave a date, which falls on a weekend, convenient it may seem, for I am not occupied with anything trivial. He gave a time, 9:00 am. It was early a start of the day, for a week full of tiresome activities. He gave a place, the Alley of Juno as it is known, for it is a path nearest to the church, where many couples are happily wedded. I am puzzled by him, giving such details.

ďI want to tell you something, so I want you to meet me there. I hope you wonít mind, itís not very important, but if you do come, it will make me very happy.Ē

I remember his words, and as I promise, being a friend of his, I will come and listen to whatever he will say. Iím glad he trust me that much to tell me something personal. Thus I came early, maybe a little bit too early. I find myself alone, as my eyes wanders about on that special place. The arches of the Alley of Juno are high and beautiful. It is tranquil and serene, so peaceful that it casts away any shadows of wariness. It seems heís late, despite him giving the time. I think boys will be boys. I hope he didnít forget, to see me at our meeting place.

It is so lovely ... I love the perspective and the shading on the arches. The smallness of the girl next to the huge arches makes her look delicate; I think it is a very nice touch. It looks like you spent a lot of time on the background, but all the details really add to the overall picture. I love all the little details like the curtains in the windows and the little arch all the way in the back. Your structuring of the buildings is fantastic! Also, cute story -- I hope he doesn't make her wait too long. Is he afraid to tell her his feelings? That is my guess. :)

Awww, thanks thanks thanks for the sweet comment..\(>3<)/

I did gave effort on the BG, I wanna make a good background, so I tried understanding perspective and lighting, though it's not that well rounded yet..

And yes, the girl do appear delicate, surrounded by structures of stones towering in great heights. It gives that sense of a girl's fragility to physical objects so as to emotional level too.

Yes..the story may imply that guys are more shy than girls when it comes to telling his feelings. Thus a bit hesitant meeting her afterall..(^_^)

Aww poor guys ... I notice many of them at school are always trying to be tough and to hide their feelings. Guys don't realize that many girls like it when guys show their feelings. It is sweet.
Hope it works out for the two in the picture. :meow:

(^_^)guys being showy with their emotions are rare...really rare...

Actually, there's one twist in this story. Remember that I sometimes add the "Time" element in my works..look at the Clock tower at the far background. you will see that the time is just 8:00 am, an hour early than the agreed time. This means that the guy isn't actually late, but that girl is there too early, why?...hmmm

Ah.... AHHH QAQ Such an amazing picture Hokage! The arch ways! The Buildings! The Detail! sdfsd Teach me your ways!! :iconamgplz:

On a serious not I really do love everything in the picture! Really it is amazing~! Especially the perspective! Seriously stunning! I don't know why but Really my favorite thing out of it all is the red and white building... My eyes just wander there when i look at it haha xD

And the girl is very cute, she seems so light and angel like. I really do love her. But for some reason she really does strike me different... Are you experimenting in your style more then I realized haha @v@;;?

Thoough I do have to comment on this. Your leaves on the Bush up front and the tree. The way you are doing it is fine for everything but them two to me... I think for the very front bush you should have drawn the leaves out to give it the right detail. And the Tree, you should have made them smaller giving it that more back away feel... But that is just me haha >7<;;

It really is a great picture.... ; v; <3 I hope I can draw buildings like you one day + v+ <3

(^_^)thanks for liking it, I'm glad...

The girl is too small to see, that only by downloading and zooming can you actually recognize her features..heh..but I used the same technique as to my "Memories of Yore"..it is my style when I'm implying a serious message, while I use my casual style for everything whimsical...

And yes, I shall follow your pieces of advice here..they are well thought, and I admit I did miss some details here and there..heh...next time, it will be even better...Painting the leaves on this picture required me listening to fast rock music to keep my hand on the move and in rhythm...

you can draw something like this..I believe so, even better, just keep your passion and heart to art. If you need my help, even if I'm not that knowledgeable, I'll help with the best I can...

"If she were my friend, I would've felt guilty meeting her late cuz I made a girl wait. =w= Haha if feelings develop, I'd probably confess to her my feelings in that place as well." Haha STOP! >.<

In another note, the background's really wonderfully done worthy enough of putting it as a scene of a romantic school-life visual novel. It kind of reminded me of scene in Ef ~A Tale of Memories~ where Miyako and Hiro were hanging out. Sigh, love...

Nice work btw.

Love how the character blended in the background :la: *tries to learn from you*

Did you use photoshop in doing the background? *curious curious*

Thanks very much...I did use Photoshop for the guidelines of the BG...SAI is sloppy when it comes to those kind of stuffs...and it is a painful task since I'm not a natural painter...

ohh, ok ok 8D I usually use Sai for drawing, and Photoshop for the background. *practices*

Same here, I use sai for everything else, Photoshop is for line guides, sometimes color base, and image resizing....practice, is the father of success...
