Homecoming by vampireangel13 Homecoming by vampireangel13
David is often away thanks to his job. He always gets a warm welcome home.

Alex was so cute when he was little! D:
hard to believe...

I really really like how David's hair came out! I did it a little different than normally, I generally just draw lines when I ink but I did subtracting as well. Poor Alex, he's all one color XD

Alex and David are me. Do not steal do not repost.

aaargh. DA is really behaving bad. It's not letting me submit this at all D:

Now it's submitted but I can't even view it. *sigh*
Sometimes I hate this place.

Aw, this one's sweet too! :-) That special emotional quality you captured in the sketch carried through to the ink. Thank can be tricky sometimes!

What do you mean by subtracted? White/erase as well as black lines to shape the ... pieces ... chunks ... hanks ... whateveryou'dcallthem? (I love how it came out. :-) The hair feels like it has substance to it.)

Sorry about submitting problems :-( Have you checked the dA help or Googled? Older browsers and older operating systems can make things not fun. But if everything's new, maybe someone has a workaround.

Thank you!! :heart:
I agree it's hard. Part of me alwasy wants to cry when it's inking time. The only good thing to come out of it is I can fix all the flaws that are in my sketch, like hands and heads that are too large =_=
I do that a lot.

yep! :) That's generally how I draw, I scribble a lot then erase XD it's different with pen...but somehow it worked here.

Well, I have no idea what the issues are...they're always different (even my internal error screens are different O.o), and I use two different macs with two different operating systems and get issues on each one. I figured my work computer was so bad because of the server at work (which SUCKS) but it's just as bad at home where my nets should be fast. I'm running Lion (ick) and Snowleopard. I just think DA just hates me.

Yes it's great to have a second chance. :-)

Ah, I'll have to mess around with techniques like that. I have some blonde characters coming up who won't be able to hide their hair behind a big splotch of black. ;-)

You're more up to date than me, then. I'm still on Leopard. (They're at the end of the big cats it seems. Will it be Cerval next? Margay?)

Maybe it's some bias against vampire angels. Maybe you need to form a union!

I will form a union!! Me and....me. Damn. That's a crappy union D:

My job updates all my softwares and OS's for me. it's nice! :) though I refused to go to Lion at home because it sucks. When they fix it I'll update. It's actually sitting on my desktop, waiting for use XD I'm guessing Sand Cat will come next. or maybe Lynx. Or they'll be all lame and do Mountain Lion or something even though we had Panther. Or the scariest cat of all...house cat D: D: D:

My cat is pretty scary anyway...and he thinks he's big so it kind of counts...

Blonds are kind of obnoxious! but I'm better at them than the black-haired ones XD I have yet to perfect my "inking" for black haired characters!! Good thing I don't have many!

I....love this. A whole, whole lot. I could peg it on the expressions, or David's hair, or the composition, or the subject matter, but basically I love it all.

Thank you! I'm glad you like it...I tried out about 4 backgrounds before going with this one. That sounds sad when I type it out XD

This kinda reminds me of when I was little. My dad had just been transferred to be the overseer or whatever you call it for Rosemann & Assoc. (the architecture firm he works for)'s STL branch, so he was always away for a while since we still lived in Kansas City at the time. ^^
