Memories by Valentina-Remenar Memories by Valentina-Remenar
And here’s something a little bit different. Concept art of my character Ash when he was a kid. I had this on my mind for several months and it’s supposed to look like a slightly damaged old photograph of him. And I guess he didn’t smile much XD That building in the background is an orphanage where he used to live. Some drawings of him you can check below. :la:

I really love the photo effect, looks just like an old picture (like the ones my parents have in their photo albums! :XD:). The clothing style/fashion -- and heck even his hair! -- puts him perfectly in an older time period, you really nailed that, I feel transported back in time :D
Do we know how old he is in this picture? :la: (Or is that classified info? :D)

Give him a hug, he needs a hug. XD Llama Emoji-60 (Snug or Hug) [V3] hug APH Prussia tackle hug

You know how much I adore this drawing, But I shall reiterate this awesomness.
Even seeing how this was done I'm still blown away by the end result, because
this was such a cool concept you achieved. The noise, the film grain, the wear
and tear from an old photo, it well and truly feels like an old photo. So for a study
you very well achieved what you set out to do.

I adore this character of yours, he has so much to him even if writing is not your
forte. You write stories in your art, and do it incredibly well. There is much told
even in his expression. I honestly could write a snippet based on this picture alone
that's how well I think you achieved your work.

You keep up this gloriousness, and I shall continue to admire it with each new
piece. You did amazing here dear friend, and I look forward to more. :D Let me hug you! Hug

He does need hugs XD AWW... and thank you sooooo much :iconbrohugplz: :iconletmehugyouplz: it was definitely fun to pain it even though it was completely different than my other works :iconlawooplz:

LOL I just pictured on how he'd feel that day when they'd drag him outside into the garden so that they'd be able to take a pic. He probably wasn't in the mood and photographer thought that it'd be a good idea to place the shooting in the garden, with orphanage placed in the background :XD:

Ash needs all the hugs XD And Leia and he'd be a happy boyo.
But yesh you did a fantastic job on this experiment.

Lol we blame Lloyd as being the bad camera man XD he did it,
he did it just to spite Ash. Another challenge. XD He wanted a pic
for Ashy Slashy. XD
