-the long walk home- by oomizuao -the long walk home- by oomizuao
I realized I've been away from DeviantART for a long while now, and I'm sorry about that. I try to stop by every now and then to read and reply to comments and notes, but life outside the internet has been.... stressful, to say the least. I'm hoping things will get better soon, and that I'll finally get some time to draw again - which I've hardly done the last few weeks...
But I found this "old" thing in one of my art folders on my computer, and since I haven't uploaded it before, I thought I'd do it now, for the sake of uploading something ^^;

Thank you guys so much for still visiting my page, commenting and sending note, and for caring in general :) I really appreciate it. You guys are awesome :)

This is amazing, great job on this.

I know very few artists who can capture atmosphere nearly as well as you've done here.

While i'm not entirely into anthro-art.  Your art speaks to me, in terms of pain and suffering. 
 
I love your ability to transfer emotions onto paper.  I wish I had that skill

I feel a lot for Spike, I know how much I love coming home and relaxing and dropping all my work and flopping on the bed where as Spike doesn't have that. He has a bad day at school then goes home for an even worse time, I love that you can show so much about our story in this one image.

Always happy to see you post pretty much anything-  take the time you need away, catch your breath and relax :)  I hope life isn't so stressful soon.
And also, this is so cool.  I love the atmosphere, it gives me chills the longer I look at it.

It's alright, altho getting fresh air is something that any of us needs besides staying in a room in 4 walls with internet is kinda hard to let go on.. Believe me i been there myself. Anyways... it looks awesome.

PS: U have plenty of time to draw, no worries. But glad your doing ok. Keep up the good work hun.

There is such a depth of emotion in this it sends chills down my arms. I find myself associating with this image a great deal. Being from an abusive home when I was a child. The colors and shadows display wonderfully the apprehension of heading back to a frightening environment.

Really cool ^^ I like how the perspective and the lighting both hide the eyes. Really adds to the overall feeling of loneliness and sadness. Clap

You're very welcome! :)

As for this drawing, I get a real feeling of dread from it. Like Spike knows whats in store for him at home, yet he has nowhere else to go. :(

awsome!
you said that htis was an old picture so a way you could enhance it (if you wanted to) i think it could look cool if you added some of the daemons that Spike draws behind him
or add the worse Sam... up above!
you really captured the look of natural light!!!! i really like the image :)

Things will get better because life is always changing, it can't stay one way forever <3 <3 i hope that is comforting
It will get better

I like it, it has a sad feeling to it, but I can relate. I believe most of us can, I think everyone has done one of them long walks home :)
