when the gloves come off. by deadbear when the gloves come off. by deadbear
"so far and few these precious days,
when we can leave behind us,

compulsive dissolution,
or broken bones and violence,

on these we waste our other days,
but days like this are timeless,

free of all pretentious things,
which now seem to define us.



i love you little bear.
-mayday"

Your sense of light placement is what makes this piece so breathtaking I think- it looks like early morning light coming in a window to her left, which makes the whole thing so much more innocent. Well done.

I love your style... it reminds me of the Gorillaz with how it looks like you took a picture of a room and drew your characters on the picture with a really nice program. :D

I am surprised how much emotion you can put into her charakter eventhough she looks like she doesn´t let anyone come too close - she keeps her distance, always, and she´s just such an amazing character!! I´m glad that I´m no boy, she would change my tide of women and I would never find a girl like her so - lucky me =)

gosh, you do a great job.

I don't really know what to think of this. It melds realism and 2D into a seamless reality, so its very offbeat. But its still really cool. Good work!

This image is so strange. its obviously very stylised, and I do love the illustration. But the fact that you used such a whited out background (with a small amount of high detial) then blured it all beyond recognition makes it look like she's a cartoon character in a real world.. and thats what I love.
Thats why you get the fav+
