Nothing is Real by velvetnlace Nothing is Real by velvetnlace
Hey, nothing is real, it's all what you believe,
Something you dream inside your head;
You know how I feel because it's just you and me,
Something I need to call my own, to feel and call my own...


Goo Goo Dolls song titles make good art titles, too.

Steffano is his player's.
Stasia and art are mine.

MY FEELINGS CAN ONLY BE EXPRESSED THROUGH SQUEALS AND KEYBOARD MASHING

I want to say that this left me speechless. I couldn't express the thoughts going through my head. To say my jaw hit the floor, isn't enough. Everything about this piece is absolutely amazing.

The detail, the style, the background, the patience. . .

Mindy, everything about this is perfect and flawless. It is so beautiful.
That's the only word I can think of that fits this. . .

Astonishingly Beautiful.

I love how the heart mark is right in the middle of everything, too. THIS WAS NOT INTENTIONAL.

Thank you so much, Shawn :heart: And you totally will. You get better with every piece you do.

First and foremost... your title pleases me greatly for obvious reasons. ;) You have some good taste in music.

I loved watching you paint this, and the end result is absolutely gorgeous, Min. Your technique, the lighting, the character interaction and the background are all flawless and they compliment each other so well. I'm also completely in love with the way you paint hands... that little hand on his face just yanks my heartstrings like a kitten in a teacup.

Beautiful. Just beautiful.

Hey, it's your fault I'm getting back into these guys! This song is still on repeat, too. I'm hopeless.

:heart: Thank you, Elle, both for the kind words and especially for keeping me company on my stream through most of this thing! A lot of the things you just mentioned are my trouble areas (hands and interaction in particular), so I'm thrilled to hear I pulled it off.

I am happy to take the blame for this. I'm the best influence ever.

Anytime at all! If they're your trouble areas, you'd never know it. Trying it the way you do it gives me a whole new level of appreciation for it - holy hell, it is hard. :facepalm:
