Happiness by fireaangel Happiness by fireaangel
EDIT:// Depending on your screen's brightness level, you may see some errors in this picture. On very bright screens, you can see patches of black on the top of the earth and spots of random blue on the bottom out in random space, like it's detached from the earth. I did this on my desktop PC, which has a darker screen than my Mac laptop, so it looks much better on the PC since the bright screen on the Mac distorts the colors a bit. If you are seeing the errors I mentioned, pretend they aren't there. ^^;


"Happiness" by *fireaangel
Happiness is not a useless emotion.
Why would we have it if it had no use?
I wish more people could feel that happiness, from the bottom of their hearts
So that there would be less sorrow in the world.
If everyone was happy, no one would have a reason to hurt
And no one would feel the need for revenge.
If everyone was happy, then everyone would realize that
Happiness comes from within, and
No one can make YOU happy except YOU.
So what is happiness, and how can you find it?
Happiness is pure contentment. When you are happy, little things don’t bother you.
Even if life is tough, you find things that bring you joy.
And other people tend to feel happier around you.
Happiness is found when you realize that you are not in control of everything
And not everyone is going to love you for who you are
And life is not always going to be just the way you want it to be,
And you don’t care, because you also
Realize that you need to actually LIVE life instead of wondering about tomorrow.
You CAN be happy.
Smile, just once.
You could make someone’s day.


My entry for the Wacom Dreams Contest! It's my first real "digital painting" ever; therefore, I will open up critique. *cringe*


I actually just found that poem on my computer after I finished the picture. XD The poem is like, a year old now. xP
Can you guess my biggest dream?
It's worldwide happiness.

'Tis a large file. o_o

Tools: SAI, Photoshop
Time: ??? (done over a span of five days xAx)

Critique by princess-tarot Dec 8, 2009, 2:18:42 PM
My face did this when I saw this piece ----->> :wow: And it's going to be incredibly difficult to give it some critique, because I honestly cannot find anything that needs improving!
Seeing as this is your first digital painting, can I just say that you did an outstanding job!
The colours are so vibrant, yet there's a softness about them, it's a nice contrast and it leaves an eye-catching, yet soothing sense about this.
What I adore most about this piece is the concept and how you expressed it into your art. I can't think of the right words, but I'm trying to say that what you did was perfect :heart:
Personally, I think this piece is wonderful the way it is, and nothing should be done to improve it, however this is a 'Critique' soo...
The black on her eyes appears quite harsh compared to the rest of the soft colouring, so there's a bit of a clash, I'm not sure whether this is a good thing or not >u<;;
Oh I also think there should maybe be some looser tresses of hair, because to me it looks a little too perfect, but I don't know, maybe that's the effect you wanted to create ^w^
I'd also say that there's something about the right shoulder that doesn't work for me :/ Maybe it's too far from the neck?
The last thing I'd touch on is the bottom of the Earth (which BTW is awesome :'D) I just think it could have been blended into space a little better, that's all ^w^

Hope you found this helpful and good luck in the competition! :aww:
