I can't believe I haven't commented on this one yet. I fell in love with this picture the first time I saw it. The motif/ pose is lovely and the way you drew it and the colours you used are just WOW! It has inspired me a lot, really, it got me drawing so many times and inspired me with colours and the feeling it has. I've drawn a few pictures inspired from this. I really, really love it. Just everything about it. Including the square cropping :lol: Do you possibly have a link to the ref pic, scan or anything? It would be cool to see it.
However, just please know that this piece is one of the, if not THE, most favourite pic I have here on dA :) I've had it as a background for my cellphone for periods, and it's been following me, like, stuck in my mind :lol: It's so very lovely and inspiring!
Just wanted to tell you about my great appreciation of your work, and thanks :love: Ok I'll stop writing now lol :iconfailcatplz:

sorry for the late reply, I'm afraid of long comments I think xDD
you had it as a background on your cellphone? this picture? omg, I feel so honoured♥
yap, I just scanned it for you, I bought the pamphlet ages ago xD here:

Same here, sometimes it takes me months to reply to a single (long) comment... haha just a little embarrassing ^^;
Yeah, it's no big deal, I really love it so it came kinda naturally ^^
Thanks very much for scanning!! Means a lot. That's totally beautiful :heart: Haha but I still prefer your interpretation of it for some reason :D You bought the pamphlet on a concert?
And you're more than welcome, I should be the one thanking you for all the inspiration :huggle:

yeah, it's pretty strange, because the comments are not that long but.. I don't know xD
You're welcome, if you want I could scan the other members too :heart:
No, no, I was too young (about 7 years old :D). I received it from a friend :)

So you've been a Diru fan since you were seven?? :w wow

Ooh that would be lovely if you scanned the other ones too.. I'd be really grateful if you have the time for it :)
I really love those pictures, or the pics in general taken in that era. Kyo's so beautiful :love: Also the other members ^^

Take care :hug:

ah no! I meant I WOULD be 7 if I WOULD buy this pamphlet in 1999. I bought it 3 or 4 years ago :3

I will send yu a note with the scans when I'll be able to scan it :)
Kyo in this era looks like a baby boy playing and acting like a show man :3

Words seriously cannot describe the awesome.

What can I say? The colours, shading and gradients of this whole image are flawless.

The detail is outstanding.

It's so...REAL! I am almost convinced this is a photograph, it's wonderful! Keep it up!

thank you so much! I'm wondering you convinced this piece is a photo :D
