Newgrounds Background Image Theme

Don't let go of your spirit


I think this is become one of my favorite pieces even though it didn't take me that long to do lol

(FYI the original isn't that dark. My camera is just stupid and it made everything all gray)

Done with ink c:

This picture really looks like it's from a child's perspective/fantasy; holding a balloon and standing near a tree for "safety", a city in the background with darkness, smoke, and general incomprehensible-ness looming over it, and balloons escaping it instead of explosions or whatever. The girl is well drawn and the general environment is settled, but not as well drawn as her, the smoke and leaves being an exception. One more art piece and you can be scouted ;)


I like the feeling it envokes (Dark color and stuff.) I like the rain thing in the city its pretty awesome (I do not get the symbol of the Balloon but it still is cool.) Yeah the tree rocks.

the balloons flying in the distance from the city and the balloon the little girl is holding represents their spirit. Hence the title :P


This is very cool!
Makes me feel somewhat depressed tho.
U did a good job.

NekoOnigiri responds:

hmm funny cause I drew it when I was in a pretty uplifting mood heh...

Thanks though C:

Emo nonsense

You did a good job drawing the tree on the right though

NekoOnigiri responds:

Don't see how its "Emo nonsense" as I don't see the little girl cutting her wrist haha. Though I guess it is pretty depressing since last I checked, burning cities didn't make people happy in the pants
