~Sweetest Devil~ by MisaCheshire ~Sweetest Devil~ by MisaCheshire
Just a random sketch during a movie :shrug: The movie turned out to be better than I expected, though XD But, yeah, the sketch is done in pen (which is all I had on me XD) on a page in one of my notebooks >.>

So, yeah, you can see the page from my journal and the rest is my scanner. I thought it looked . . . neat? XD My hand-writing certainly isn't neat, though >.>

Annatar the Deceiver (hope I spelled that right >.>) belongs to whoever currently owns the Silmarillion.
Lucifer/the Devil, however, is public property C:


The Writing on the Side:

The sweetest devil one could meet
Annatar the Deceiver
Lucifer masquerading as an angel of light
Honey words to make cavities swoon
A lion, roaring for young prey to devour
The dragon lusting after golden beauty
A diverse vocabulary lacking words
Learned well from eager teachers
Naive pupils wait in line
Eager devourer of hearts
Eager to obtain what one lacks
The hollow soul with a lovely vessel
Now yours
Now his
Now hers
Now mine
Never no one's
Stray tabby
Faithless love
Psyche weeps
Trust pride
Trust swagger
Paper faces
Drowned water
He dies.

Ah Sorry for slow commenting ;w; I am so lazy lately DX
(need to force myself to do stuff I think ;p)
I'm really curious to know what movie this is based on your description (sounds gory) and I assume you scanned in greyscale and this is a blue pen XD
Found some stuffon Critique the other day that my fav teacher taught me :w00t: maybe if I use it I will stop being a lazy @ss so here goes >.>...
What is really strong about this piece is the composition :nod: The way you have the words run down one side following the shape of the body creates a nice flow from top to bottom as well as helping to balence the piece out. :) Your handwriting doesn't match your sketchy linework here as it is more neat and curvey, and the message of your words doesn't match the writing either. In this case I think it works much much better than to purposely use messy writing to match the words. The reason why is simply because it doesn't go :nod: It's more unexpected this way. As a viewer would be drawn into the work and then get a bit of a surprise when they read the nice pretty writing ;p which I love.
Onto the figure now, the anatomy is slightly off. Not sure if this is done on purpose, but it's his chin/head that seems too short...I think you would have to make the chin more stright on the side and then curve it to a point :) Other than that I think the messy line-work works well in drawing the viewer in as well as matching the message of teh words. After viewers read the words they will have more sense to the linework :D I think not showing his face was a smart decision :nod: makes it more mysterious :D Also I love that this is a rougher work on lined paper as that matches the meaning of the words as well. One last critique for you. It's personal opinion, but you should crop this to just the page as the blank space the scanner left is a bit distracting from the piece :p
Hope that this makes up for my late reply (and helps me become non-lazy >.>...) It's the longest critique I gave all summer and I think this is in your scraps ;w;....sad sad sad....XD but oh well :p

O.O Such an indepth critique . . . *Was not expecting this*

The movie wasn't really gory, to tell the truth. XD It was Lockout.

You know, that's just my normal cursive hand-writing (which is my most messy because I write fastest in it . . which is why all my writing rough drafts are in cursive :P). I really didn't put much thought into it, but I'm glad it looks good. :meow: I just decided to write something beside him after drawing the guy because . . . I though it would look neat. :p

Yeah, his chin was giving me trouble. But, I was using pen, so I didn't want to risk sketching it too much >.> XD
I honestly decided to show his face because I was just too lazy to draw it lol XD
Alright then, I'll crop it :nod:

I loved this critique. I felt happy to see it in my inbox for some reason. ;w; Thank you~ :huggle: It was very in-depth and helpful~. I didn't even know what to say, but I feel bad that my reply comment is so short. >.>
This isn't in scraps, though, by the way XD
DarkDevilZaria Jul 27, 2012  Student Digital Artist
XD I wasn't expecting it either lol XD

Hmm...never heard of that one >.>...but how did you write something like this without a gory movie O.o...

XD I see well it works well even if it's just a last second decision ;p

Ah yeah ^^;...I find this problem with Pens too :pat: it's fine :3
Pffft well even this works too XD

I'm glad I was able to give at least one decent critique this summer lol XD You're welcome :D Don't feel bad ;p I need the practice for school anyway XD
MisaCheshire Jul 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
lol XD

. . . .My pen touched paper and words came out? :shrug: That's generally what happens XD Wait, why do you think I needed a gory movie to write this? :? (In truth, I was partly thinking about Drake, but it isn't really about him >.>)

Thank you~ XD :hug:

^ ^;
lol XD

You give such good advice and resources, though :hug: lol XD
DarkDevilZaria Jul 27, 2012  Student Digital Artist
lol Pffft Drake makes you poetry like this >.>...actually now that I read it again that somehow makes sense ^^;...

You're welcome :p

>///< You think so? I'm glad to hear that then :huggle:
MisaCheshire Jul 27, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Why did you think it was gory, though? :? I really am curious XD

I know so~ :meow: :hug:

Mainy the following terms, "Lucifer; roaring for young prey to devour; Eager devourer of hearts" :shrug: I didn't think it was a metaphor ^^;...I thought it was more...erm...based on whatever movie you watched and literal lol XD
MisaCheshire Jul 29, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
LOL Nice XD The Lucifer and Lion part were based on Scripture.
"And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light." 2 Corinthians 11:14
"Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:" 1 Peter 5:8
And devourer of hearts was just a metaphor for heart-breaker XD
