Comm: Taki in Train by airibbon Comm: Taki in Train by airibbon
Thank you for commissioning me! (`・ω・´)/

The commissioner wanted two unsettled souls in a train. The theme is to make the atmosphere sad and blue. Au~!!
Can you spot 3 of my previous illustrations in those ads hanging? Hafu!

See that sign just above the girl's head on the left? It says "Ridding with despair is prohibited. Keep hopes up" ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ A joke between me and the commissioner to counter the theme of the illustration. Though that is a real sign you can find in commuters in Japan. In fact all of the signs and ads in this illustration are from real ads, *else than me illustration of course!

The ad behind that guy is a non-smoking ad. You can see it here www.voont.com/20-wonderfully-p…

Made with SAI. A brief WIP of this illustration can be seen here airibbon.blogspot.com/2013/09/…

Now... I'm gonna do my next comm. Wish me luck! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ

Really like how you choose 1 point perspective, The way you positioned the props. helps in grounding the background, feels 3d

This is amazing! I personally don't feel the sadness, it feels more like a serious atmosphere for sure. The blue part, with depression I can kind of feel it. However, if I didn't ready your description I wouldn't have guessed sad and blue. I would have gone with serious and kind of at a climax moment in a story? I hope that makes sense!

Again, this is WOW! Please don't hate me because this is just stuff I notice as a student working to be a greater artist! However, if you like more than just a "this is great" comment, the girl on the left is a bit off. The way she sit, I don't know if this was on purpose, but it's unnatural. She feels too stiff, almost in a awkward stiff way that makes me not believe it's a natural sitting position. Maybe if her back was more hunched over instead of in that in between hunch position?

Again, that's just me! Sorry if you think I'm one those "you don't know what your talking about because your art is worst than mine" thing. Face it, your art is way more better than my boring still life art. Haha!

Anywyas, love your work and keep up the great job!

That girl is actually modeled by me. And physically I can't slouch because I'm wearing a body braces and a shoulder supporter. And here in Japan not many people slouch when they're sitting in the train, I don't know why. But if they're asleep is a different story XD

And yeah that's suppose to be like that XD Making her hunch over makes it too sad. The idea of it is not to make it sad, but you got it correct, it's suppose to make it serious and tense. Because the two characters in the illustration is in a tense relationship. In a way, it is also "sad" because they can't even sit together. It's like that awkward never ending moment where you have nothing to do but just be all nervous with a stranger in an empty train OTL

:iconhontoplz: Thank you!

Oh I see! That explains a lot thank you. However, I'm sure without your body brace, and you took a reference then it would still look different. 

Anyways, still a great picture! XD

This is very nice, I remember riding the train like this, a long time ago. I don't know if they had the 'despair' signs though, but at least riding above the city did not make it feel  desolate
It is so nice I can look at this for a long time, admiring the details that I can remember from those trains.

This is it 1.bp.blogspot.com/-QWugQLlUpms… This sign has been around for quite a while. I think they want to add joke in train because rides are boring.

I am impressed. While you're obviously not striving for Photorealism—you manage to project a Very Strong sense of Three Dimensional Space.

That isn't your Art's only virtue and this isn't the only picture that you display this ability in...

But it is the quality that I most envy.

Very good work!
