You're Strange and Beautiful by Louisalings You're Strange and Beautiful by Louisalings
For sale as a poster (all sizes). Send me a note if you’re interested.

-

I've been watching your world from afar.
I've been trying to be where you are,
and I've been secretly falling apart.
Unseen…

To me, you're strange and you're beautiful,
you'd be so perfect with me but you just can't see,
you turn every head but you don't see me.

Sometimes, the last thing you want comes in first,
sometimes, the first thing you want never comes,
and I know, the waiting is all you can do.

Sometimes…

Yeah...

Hizaki, of the Japanese bands Hizaki Grace Project and Versailles :heart:

This is a commission done for darkestdispair / Jakob ([link]) :hug:

I made his hair darker here than on the original photo, because I found it suited the drawing better; same goes for the background which is a little lighter than in the reference photo. Still, it has a lot more shades and tones on the original drawing, my scanner just kicked this to death :no:


OBS: This is NOT edited in some photo-software program. This is a pure scan of the original drawing -it's only worsened by my stupid scanner- and it’s completely touch-free. I really hate when people automatically assume I've used Photoshop (or a similar program) to edit the details and contrast of my drawings. Just a little notion before anyone asks.
