's evanescence contest.Drink up sweet decadence.
I can't say no to you,
And I've completely lost myself, and I don't mind.
I can't say no to you.
Shouldn't let you conquer me completely.
Now I can't let go of this dream.
Can't believe that I feel...
I started a different entry to this contest but it technically didn't adhere to the rules so instead I just made a new one, which is craploads better than the other one
So I was in the library the other day trying to do math, but stupidly I decided to bring my pencils, so spent 4 hours or so working on this instead. I got it about halfway done, and then worked on it for another few hours later on.
The theme was to portray an evanescence song with animals. I figured, epic sunlight, frolicking unicorns, etc. would work nicely for "good enough". I love the line "drink up sweet decadence" and drew them in water, splashing, to sort of symbolize that. Also in the video after Amy gets rained on it gets all sunny and nice, so yah.
I don't much like the trees, and the lighting is messed up throughout the drawing, but I didn't use a ref for anything and high contrasty lighting is hard to make up
done in polychromos and prismacolors, took about 6 hours, on 11x14 paper
