Dreaming Pleasant Things by RohanElf Dreaming Pleasant Things by RohanElf
"Edward stood, motionless as a statue, just a few feet from the mouth of the alley. His eyes were closed, the rings under them deep purple, his arms relaxed at his sides, his palms turned forward. His expression was very peaceful, like he was dreaming pleasant things. The marble skin of his chest was bare–there was a small pile of white fabric at his feet. The light reflecting from the pavement of the square gleamed dimly from his skin."

- New Moon: Ch 20; Volterra ~ Stephanie Meyer

Yeeeah, this was just a big mistake from the start and then turned into a 'clean up operation' spending most of the time trying to fix all the mistakes. Oh well, I dislike drawing buildings immensely, especially stone buildings. Too many straight lines for my liking... not to mention my dislike for drawing six packs... I think they're ugly.

Also, I think his arms being 'relaxed at this sides' and his ' palms being turned forward' contradicted each other entirely because the minute you put his palms forward his arms cease being relaxed, but whatever :P The pose is too stiff and I was too lazy to do it all over again...

...the lighting was fun though.

Meh meh.

Eh. Six packs are kinda icky. Besides, I don't really see Edward working out that much in life. Emmett, on the other hand... HE would have a six pack. But not Edward. He's too much of a loverboy type. Although the buildings turned out pretty sick.

They're just so... over the top. Okay, so maybe I prefer the non-buff, intellectual type. Excessive muxcles have just never been my thing. neither re blonde beach gods. California kinda scares me, come to think of it...

My parents are retarded. They seriously freaked out on me because I went to the mall without finishing cleaning my room. Now I can't have James (my Macbook/baby) until I absolutely clean the slightest bit of gunk away. Yeah. Don't know why that popped into my head, except that I want to write, and that's the only up-to-date version of my story that there is...

Waaaaaaah! I've scrolled through the comments and just that made me want to read this book (books?). :lol: And most of my drawings are clean up operations (or at least become at some point). I still think it looks great.

I know how you said that you really hate drawing buildings but i think the buildings are fantastic!! And the colours you used are wonderful! They attain the mood of the chapter!
Love it! Well done!

Nicely done with the stone/cobbles. I love the building. And that archway... *dies of architectural overload*

So what is this guy? Some sort of hot corpse?

I think I'll try the scene again from a different angle later. I think I was most concerned with lighting here rather than anything else. Good practise, but not the best outcome. Oh well.

why is he doing that? what is he waiting for?... I'm not familiar with the Twilight-series (but I'm going to read the books. don't worry) but as far as I know Ed is a vampire and sun is deadly for vampires. The way you paint it it looks like he's committing suicide, waiting for the sun to touch him...
