.:Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child:. by faster-by-choice .:Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child:. by faster-by-choice
"Sometimes I feel like a motherless child...
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child.
Sometimes I feel like a motherless child...
A long ways from home...
A long ways from home.

Come, my brother!...
A long ways from home...
A long ways from home.

Sometimes I feel like I'm almost gone...

Come, my sister!...

Vent-ish art. I overdid the rain a bit, and it was my first real attempt at rain, but my goal was to make Mickey look depressed, cold and afraid.

It worked. :stare: My God, what have I done to poor Mickey? :noes:

I'm mighty proud of this picture :heart: The song is an excerpt from a spiritual with many many versions. Listen to one version of it here. It's really quite moving, actually...

Why do I always draw tears falling upwards?

This kinda makes me feel sad for him. And maybe the tears are just defying gravity for just this one picture and decided to fall upwards? XD

This would be accurate actually, considering Mickey is a child, of sorts, with no mother and certainly no father. :'(

So sad and emotional. It came out great!

Also love the rain effect, especially the drops falling from the sky with that angle.
Amazing work!
