DROPLET: cover and archives by RenieDraws DROPLET: cover and archives by RenieDraws
Here is the cover page for my comic "Droplet"
It's the first comic of any considerable length I've finished so far. It is a silent comic, the storyline is a pretty simple, I leaned towards visuals and a good amount can be left to the reader's own interpretation.

I started drawing it almost three years ago and I've been scratching out bits and peices of it between high school and college. A few months ago I finally had the chance to wrap it up and unify the whole project.

Gorgeous work, the details are amazing the light and shadow. The main character so beautiful angelic really. I adore the work with the water the movement, and the way it forms little globes like when viewed by high speed camera images. I'm going to make sure to favorite the whole comic I'm sure I'll want to view it again. I'll show my friends too. Take care.

I want to cry, but the tears won't come. I . . . just can't type. Your art work is gorgeous, the story line is tear-breaking, and the emotion . . . is unconvaliable.

Thank you for bringing such a wonderful thing into the world! ;_;

Beautiful and sad.

[link] I was listening to this as I started reading. It somehow seemed to fit it? In a way... not so much the lyrics entirely..just... I dunno. It made the comic even more emotional to read D

read the whole thing and ....Is this in some kind of magazine? or in a miny comic book? coz it really should be!!!! this is amazing!!!! no words needed, just images filled with "emotion", "feeling". the colour scenes at the end really do somethin! (for one they are super well done). it makes me feel like for the last 2 parts he is finally happy, (the smile hinted that a lot).
fantastic, beautiful art!!!
mind if i add you to my watch list?
yes?
well too bad XD

Nice, would love to see it compiled into a full size, color mini-comic book. Would be kinda nice to see an animated version :D (there was a animatrix episode with a similar ending :P).

wow that was really amazing. i can definitely tell how much time you put into it. the art is gorgeous. i dont know how you can go from something so soft and warm as the birds into the grunginess and dirtyness of the streets. every person in the background even had their own unique looks. i could tell you really worked a long time at this. and the story came out really well even without the use of words. its not necissarilly a new idea, but it had its own unique twists to it that i really like. it was very beautiful

I came really close to crying.
;_; That was such a moving story. If I hadn't of been at work I probably would have bawled like a babe. I suppose I must be really mushy inside.

The art throughout the entire thing was positively breathtaking.

3 years in the making... that's quite a scope of time. But that much time and effort pouring your heart into the story. I'm not in the least bit surprised it came out so incredible.

This series is so incredibly moving and the artwork is some of the best I've seen to date. Stunning, absolutely stunning..... It left me speechless so I bounced onto msn to show some of my non-DA friends.
If I ever see this become published, I promise I will buy it (assuming it's not mind-numbingly expensive). Amazing artwork, I can't get over it.
You've just proved to all of the artists out there that you don't need to read or write to communicate a powerful message.
This is beautiful and so very sad. I will remember this story for years to come.
