"Y... you can see me? No ones been able to see me... Can you hear me? No? At least... see my message..."

New pic. Yay!
This took way longer than it should have done to make. o.o

And lookie, still no background. But anything more detailed than this seemed to ruin the feeling of emptiness I wanted, so excuse me this time please.

Also, it was really hard to make the shading on this somewhat interesting when it was using an ambient light source from the viewers point, meaning all the interesting shadows were behind her. D:

Hope you all like it.

- Peace

Somewhere, outside the panic room...

You sit there, looking on, as she prays for salvation on the other side of the wall, awaiting her fate, as she wasn't quick enough to get in the panic room as well. You heartless bastard.

The way that the emotion is conveyed with the simplest of drawings is incredible, with the "help me" scrawled into the condensation and then scratched onto the other side, reducing the nails to bloody sores, which really does show the desperation more than the tears. Does there really need to be that much in the way of tears? The river effect doesn't do much in my opinion.

I wouldn't have thought that the tears would come from both sides of the eyes, as the tear ducts are either side of the bridge of the nose. Crying would also make the eyes bloodshot and red, so why not put some of that in there.

This was my first try at tears honestly. I didn't know it only came from one spot, so you guys have been helpful on that.
And yeah, river of tears doesn't seem to work for serious pics. xD

Thanks for the review.

Good atmosphere

The girl in this picture really does look hopeless, so you covered that emotion quite well. I think she would just look as hopeless without the tears too, so you could even use less tears here.
I don't like the tears too well anyway as I think the lacrimal glands are only near the nose. So this means tears could only come out on that one spot but here in the picture it looks like the tears come out on two spots (left and right of the eyes), which doesn't look too good, in my opinion.

However, what does look good is the messages she wrote. Just like ChampionAnwar I thought the breathed on the glass in front of her to write that one message with her fingers.
The other message she wrote before she noticed that there was someone who could see her. It seems she tried to scratch that other message into the wall behind here and she got bloody fingers by doing so. This amplifies the hopeless situation this girl is in.

Overall the picture is really great. You managed to create a very dense atmosphere with just two messages and one facial expression, so you've done a great job there.

Admittedly, this was my first time drawing tears. Now its later on, the stream of tears doesn't look right to me either. Though I didn't know tears only came from one part of the eyes. (I'm no anatomy expert. xD)

Thanks for the review.

But she looks fine!

-Why would someone want to be saved from a haven like that. You can walk around naked all the time and relax all day. Maybe a chair or some shrubbery to spruce the place up a bit but that's it.

-Actually in all seriousness you were able to convey the atmosphere of desperation quite well. The lack of anything in the room and her obvious lack of any items at all shows that she is treated like an animal with no worth at all. No contact at all just to be observed in her tiny cage. The scrathed help me shows how desperate she is to get out her message. If she is willing to bleed and damage her hand just to get it out there. That combined with the breathed on message.

-I'm going to have to pick out the hand. It's very pointy and oddly shaped. That combined with the lack of hand definition and no marks of any sort make it seem very unrealistic. The hair does look kind of greasy and matted with a tuft missing showing that she has been isolated for a while and must of had a struggle before she was in there. Possible concusion/amnesia since she doesn't know exactly where she is or how she got there.

-It just seems like it was rushed since there are some flaws with the picture. Still it's a lot better than some of the other stuff submitted to the art portal.

Mismatched responds:

Glad I got the mood right. Little back story, no one put her there. She's just always been there.

The hand though... I still suck at hands. They are really hard.

And ironically, it wasn't rushed. I actually spent longer than I should have trying to get it right. ^^;

Thanks for the review.

Not your best.

It was good, but to me this didn't really raise the bar like you have done with your previous art entries.

The "shine" on the hair you did, for me didn't seem very realistic to me. It was one colour fading into a sort of white (I dunno, in a nutshell it kinda looked a bit forced colour-wise)

The tears seemed a bit uhm. . forced too, I normally see traces of tears when someone in real life cries. Like it's one tear after the other (bleh I can't explain for toffee). Also, it's like you brought out the tears in like a 3D thing above the face, didn't really seem to fit to me.

Hand is a bit weird, but I'm not really gonna say much on that because on close inspection I couldn't pick anything out xD.

NO MORE NEGATIVESSSSSSS! >_>

Love the way you wrote "help me" like your character breathed on the window and wrote on the glass (thats what came to my mind, an empty glass box). Also love the little "breath marks" (I'm gonna call it that) in front of the mouth, kept it true to life in my opinion.

Please tell me that red stuff on her finger-nails and where the other "help me" is. . isn't blood >_>. You know I hate the stuff hehehehe (not that it's a bad thing).

When I first looked at it, I was like O:. It's good, it just needs to be improved a bit, bleh I go on too much. I like it, don't get me wrong. . it's just compared to your last 2 that might I say were "epic" in my opinion. This just sorta fades into the background. . Dun hate meh ): Me still thinks you is awesome.

Mismatched responds:

Your not the only one to point out the hair, and I guess it was kinda forced. ^^;
I dunno. I'm still in practice technically.

Oh. Now thats actually a good idea on the tears. I'll remember that next time. :D

And hands are tricky.

Glad you like the rest of it though.
Thanks for the review.
