Alleyways by Cherrie-Keane Alleyways by Cherrie-Keane
After all the angst last night, I needed something cute :faint:

just a quickie, make within a 90 minutes. just me fucking around in PS.
the background is shoddy, I know. I KNOW THIS. :crying:

I drew this mostly as practice drawing from reference. I spent a while trying to replicate an ad in the my moms beauty magazine. it was a perfume add, and richie was originally a female.
MIRACULOUSLY. I MANAGED TO TRANSLATE HER POSE INTO SOMETHING MASCULINE. magic! :iconimaginationplz:

virgils head annoys me though :iconwthplz:

You said that "Home" was you're favorite, but I'm thinking that this may be mine. While it is quite a bit more rough than Home and could have done with a little more refining, I really like the unique setting and pose you chose for this. It just seems like something they would have done had the show continued on to their late teens. A sort of slice-of-life thing.

The setting and pose are really interesting as they give the scene an ironically cliché sense of Aladdin-dropps-off-the-Princess, especially considering Richie-the-Princess actually looks more masculine to me here. And outside the irony, I really love how you have Virgil basically holding up the borders of the painting. It makes it look like the small aria they were in was the beginning and the end of their universe at that point in time and Virgil keeping it from collapsing in on them just long enough for just one last kiss. 'Course, there isn't any of the desperation that would normally be found in the scenario I just mentioned, but I still think that they really weren't aware of the world around them here.

That Virgil is on his disk while still in his civvies is a great testament to the fact that they only have eyes for each other. I love how you have combined their super and civilian lives together here. That in a world like the one they live in, you cannot truly separate the hero from the man no matter the clothes they wear (especially after a certain point in their careers), is something that I really like to explore and I like to see it explored.

I absolutely love this.

Now I remember where I recognize you from! You're the one who drew the really cute picture of Virgil and Richie that I faved ages ago, aren't you? I'm so glad people are still doing fanart of these two! This one is also lovely. The pose is fantastic, and I really like the little details like how Virgil's dreads are pulled back into a ponytail and Richie's right shirtsleeve is falling around his elbow because of the angle he's holding his arm at.

I like that you do a lot of VR, because they're one of my favorites. And you were already pretty great in the one I faved before, but, yes, I'd say you've gotten even better since then!
