I was never alone to carry the melody
It was never my own
It was always apart of me
Everything I need


Summer Forgets Me | Deas Vail


-----------------------------------------------------------------

Another snuggly February-valentine type piece while I catch up on the original V-day drawing we were doing. If you follow my tumblr, my allergic reaction finally has cleared up and I am a functioning human again! Turns out the horrible swelling rash was the climax of the battle I ended up winning. Thank goodness. orz

This song inspired this piece quite some time ago, in the fall of last year. The chorus doesn't seem to make sense in relation to the picture as is, but for these two, it's about letting go of the past, and this piece is kind of a healing period after that experience. The song is specifically about Sam, but this scene is for both of them. Since the WIP version was in my now full PT dump, I wanted to post a finished version first. I left it a bit rough to keep the feeling, and it was really therapeutic.

:) Gonna post that PT dump in the coming week sometime.

done in SAI, text in photoshop

Thank you for any comments, faves, and watches! :love:

wonderful picture, I just love this scene because of how calm it is, how you show the wind blowing the flowers and their hair. "A perfect moment when nothing needs to be said or thought. A moment when the two of us just.... are".
I know you already have a song for this picture, but this one just started playing in my shuffle when I saw this picture and just fits so much for me that it has come synonymous with it.

And in the wide field of the golden gaze, with the smiles of all the flowers, you gave me this precious bond of sharing. I bless the fateful day our roads crossed, our journey has led us through precipices and around rocks, up the mountains, with sunshine and also rain, sometimes ink-black clouds pouring the heavy rain down the path. But I accepted the offer and I saw a glorious goal worth achieving, I was changed and still am, as you where and are by my side. I see the light in you, with the weight more then ten thousand ounces of gold, for your treasure lies in the heart and soul I so much love.

These are just spontaneous thoughts into some sort of poem that came to my mind. I thought if one of them would compose one and say it aloud, it would be similar to this one. I hope you don't mind that I took this freedom and that you like it. I apologize for the somewhat edgy tone and flow here, and hope it's not completely off character.
Again, you've done a wonderful execution here, and I love the light and warm colours, they're like a fresh wave of air, gently blowing through the grass.

I always like hearing your thoughtful comments- I'm happy this drawing inspired you to write something so pretty and warm. I think it's quite fitting, and always welcome! I especially love the mention of fresh air gently blowing through the grass. What a peaceful visual... :thanks:

Thank you again :huggle:

I have so many thoughts about this picture that I can't really put into words.
It's just, strikes at your heart.
And the use of the faded colours and chaarcters standing out the simple background just gives it such a ... I dunno. Just, I can't find the word. Not heart breaking, heart felt? Maybe. But, just really brings attention to the fact that they are healing and heling eachother and it's just so bloody beautiful!!! And the faces still there but no showing much of them also gives it a sense of intimacy and oh my gosh it's just so nice okay?
I like this. It's almost... SOOTHING. I found the word!

SOOTHING IS THE PERFECT WORD! :excited: Truly really! I definitely wanted all those things- the healing, the soft tenderness, the slight intimate privacy about it, maybe even a little shy/unsure... and the soothing. Definitely.

Thank you so much gah! :tighthug: :heart:

Haha yes!!! Was struggling for so long how to describe it. It did, you captured all of that, it's incredible. Managing to do that without over complicating the picture, it's beautiful. I admire how much you can capture in your drawings, gahhhh.

The colours work perfectly with the song, Bee- actually though. The sunny, late afternoon light in the grass and flowers.... Works perfectly with the song. :love: Caught me humming the sing while looking at it hahahha :)
Sara really is tiny, isn't she? Good lord, you could just pick her up and put her places. I love the windy, nostalgic, loving feel to it. It's almost like they're looking into the future with a kind of hesitant hopefullness. Like suddenly doors are opening because they're together.
It's a hopefull but nostalgic piece. I love it. Keep up the beautiful work, Bee :)
Btw, I'm glad you won the battle with your rash. <3

Aeeheee, I'm glad you agree! I thought of this piece every time I heard it, which pushed me to finish it.
Sara is an itty beanpole! She gets pushed around and cold easily because of it. And Sam's fairly tall and built, bein' a jock and all- which kind of pushes the difference between them. :giggle: I'm sure Sammy could give Sara piggybacks without any discomfort at all!

"It's almost like they're looking into the future with a kind of hesitant hopefullness. Like suddenly doors are opening because they're together." -That's the most perfect way to put it. Like, utterly. <3

Thank you so much, also! :blushes: I'm really glad the worst (itchiest...:fear: ) part is over. Just gotta knock out this sore throat and I'll be fit as a fiddle again. :thanks: :heart:

I love that difference though- it's kinda like the difference we see between Gale and Stella and Stella and Su Mi- like their heritage and stuff, but it's a little more subtle than that. It's sweet. I dunno really, just prattling hahaha :crazy:
D'awww.... :blush: :hug: :love: thank you :) It's just the feeling I got, hahaha. It's very encouraging, these two though.

Im glad that part is over too- lots of rest and honey/cinnamon, missy! :huggle:
