This is fast becoming an annual tradition. At least, I hope it is - I just have to keep it up. But anyway, I digress. This is my second annual Valentines' Day picture. The other one will be on this gallery as soon as I figure out the Merge thing.

Guess what? I loathe Valentines'. I think it's a blatant display of commercialism, solely designed to make those in relationships fork out money and go through unnecessary stress trying to find a suitable gift and card, which inevitably is unsuitable and causes a whole heap of problems and arguments. Maybe even breakups. And the single people? Well, it just makes them depressed about being single. So, in short, Valentines' Day causes depression and arguments.

My scanner ruined this picture. Again. Had to do a lot of damage control on Photoshop, but originally it was done with watercolour pencils (although in order to make the colour more solid, I didn't use water for most of it), as most of my drawings are. Anyway, I think you get the gist. Gothic Angel - kind of an anti-Cupid. Which is apt, as last year I did a twisted, commercialised Cupid. But, anyway, it's kind of sweet. Angel, holding a heart. Ahhh.

What do you mean, real, bloody hearts aren't sweet? *sulks*

very nice. very sexy.

picture's good too. *eg*. But seriously, very good stuff. I keep saying it every time I comment on these (which is all too rare, I know, I suck); but you do have talent.

Yes, 'tis awesome. It was a little hard to tell she was holding a heart, but that may have been the scanner. I see what you meant about it being very dark... but it is very nice as well.

I'm glad this was the result of me curing your drawing block! *g*

Yay for anti-valentines day! I only liked that holiday because I used to get candy all the time. Since I'm single, Valentine's day is just another day to me...I could care less. Great job on the picture; the bloody heart is a nice touch X)

Love the anti cupid. Any Idea where one might get an anti cupid layout for a myspace page? Any help would be great.
