I'll Stand By You

Posted Jan 23, 2007, 1:17:47 AM

On March 10th, I'm going to spend Spring Break with my long-time BFF, Chella. Part of this time will be spent in San Francisco (our official Best Friends Forever Club trip), which I'm really looking forward to. <33

In anticipation, I drew this. It's supposed to be her and me, presumably in San Fran.

It took me eight hours and looking at it now, I think I hate it. Which is sad. "My" face is probably my least favorite part.  also think I made Chella's beautiful hair look like poop. Still, I put a LOT of effort into it. For this reason, it's lovingly dedicated to its inspiration, Chella.

The title is the title of what I see as "our song": I'll Stand By You by the Pretenders.

Oh, why you look so sad?
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don't be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
cause I've seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You dont know what to do
Nothing you confess
Could make me love you less

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

So if you're mad, get mad
Don't hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey, what you got to hide?
I get angry too
Well I'm a lot like you
When you're standing at the crossroads
And don't know which path to choose
Let me come along
'Cause even if youre wrong

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you

And when...
When the night falls on you, baby
You're feeling all alone
You won't be on your own

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you

I'll stand by you
Take me in, into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

      Thank you!! I hope so too! I'm trying really hard to think of lots of fun things we could do. <3

      Dollie, I just wanted to say thank you very much for all the lovely comments. I intend to reply to all of them, but they say the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. D: Sorry if I don't pull through!

      But definitely THANK YOU!

        Laughing It's okay. I was just leaving comment after comment for no reason. Big Smile I don't expect any replies right away. Especially if you're going on vacation soon. Smile

    Awesome pic! Have fun you two! Don't talk to strangers and make sure to eat right! Big Smile

      Thank you! Big Smile

      A stranger is just a friend I haven't met yet, so I might have a problem with that. Giggle But I'll definitely be eating right (or at least deliciously!).

    I'm tempted to say mushy cute things...^_^; it's so sweet! I think something that may be throwing this off is the hands-the knuckles don't line up properly, and it changes their structures a bit. If you want to bring out the hair more, try adding making the shadows deeper.

      Aiyee! Constructive criticism! Heart

      Today I tried to reallign the knuckles, but I'm not home to scan and reupload. (I'll rereply to this when I have, so you'll know. Frankly, I didn't really notice the "not-lining-up-properly", even as I was editing it, so I don't know if I succeeded in fixing it.) I also changed "my" eyes, so I think they're a little more even now. I also darkened both hairs a BIT, but I don't want to darken Chella's too much because I want it to be distinctive compared to mine. >_>;

      I love mushy cute things, so thank you! xD In fact, thank you for everything about your comment; I really appreciate it! Big Smile

        That's my goal! Glad you appreciated the crit, I'll keep an eye open for the edit. ~_^ <----Wait, those are both closed! O.O!
