Let The Rain Fall Down... by Maruki Let The Rain Fall Down... by Maruki
"Let the rain fall down...
Wash over me..
Clear my mind...
Nourish my soul...
Remind me of home...
Let the rain fall down..."


Yeah, FYI: I know "Let the rain fall down" is part of an actual song, but like I could remember that song, let alone the rest of the lyrics. So, I made up some of my own, and if you want to use your imagination, imagine Tim McGraw singing those lyrics along to a similiar beat of "When the Stars Go Blue," yet not.

ANYwhos, I sketched this and finished it on Thursday (03/29/07) night, and when I showed it to two of my friends the next day, they proclaimed it sad/depressing.

But I don't see it as that.

To me, it's rather liberating of my feelings, which aren't sad, just stressed. It had been raining not too long ago, and I had the urge to stand in the rain and do just as "I" am in this deviation, but I didn't because I'm a self-concious coward.
I've always loved the rain. Makes me wonder why I've never drawn rain before. So, this was a fun experiment with rain drawn via pencil on paper. All I did to alter this pic was darken it so it'd be easier to see.

Enjoy, and hope you're finding ways to liberate those build-ups of stress that tend to get in the way...

Chow for now,
Maru

*saves the image*

I think my favorite parts are the hair, and the umbrella. But the pose too is just so wonderful! X3

I love your art, you seem to draw more from life than from anime, like a lot of artists on dA. You're like a real artist. I'm jealous. :3 :+favlove: This drawing is especially nice.

Well, art teachers are ALWAYS touchy about that. If a picture looks the slightest bit cartoony or anime inspired, they have a fit. XD

Yeah, they insist "originality." But their definition of that is "realism" XP

Please tell me those aren't the lyrics to that Hillary Duff song.

*Laughs* Believe me, only the first line, MAYBE the second line are inspired by that, but the rest is mine. READ THE DESCRIPTION and you might understand how I actually hear those lyrics in my head XP
