it reminds me of yoshitaka amano's style of art (the guy who does a lot of the designs for the Final Fantasy series, for those who dont know).
this isnt to say that youre copying his style or anything, just that its up there on the awesomeness scale
I can see Amano's inlfuence in this one
Really fluid, and the colors work very nice together. I miss the smoke though. I thing that you could have drawn some very interesting ideas with the smoke, with the style you used in this pic
People who smoke are stupid....and yet I can't deny women do look sexy smoking. I think it's because it draws attention to their lips and suggests a williness to do "other" things. Also....smoke by itself looks cool. Have you ever blown out a candle and just watched the smoke trails? Of course you have.
that's really rude. People have a choice to smoke or not. I chose to. yet I graduated high school, have a full time job, pay the bills, pay taxes, etc. So am I stupid? I know the risks. Not knowing the risks is stupid, making a choice is not.
I'm sorry....I could have worded that better. I know lots of smokers and they aren't bad people. But...there is NO good reason for smoking. Period. You shouldn't do it to "fit in". You shouldn't do it to look cool. You shouldn't do it because it relaxes you.
Their is only ONE good thing about smoking....population control.
Choosing to smoke is a STUPID decision. Period. This doesn't mean ALL of the decisions you will make will be stupid in your life time but it's not a good start. It's an IMPORTANT decision, though. So quit smoking because you know it's the right thing to do....for yourself, your family, and your friends.
STOP SMOKING. You don't need cigarettes. Don't be afraid to live healthy. Be happy.
have you ever smoked? no. My mother smokes as well as my boyfriend... just because something has ill effects doesn't mean there's no good reason not to smoke. there are plenty of good reasons. its not a stupid decision if its informed decision.
People who TRULY understand what they are doing to their bodies and to their loved ones CHOOSE not to smoke. It really is that simple. Young ones start at an early age because they are so desperate to fit in and so totally insecure with themselves. They also have this idea that they can quit anytime and have no idea how addictive the habit is. Generally they don't know about the dangers of second hand smoke and that you are also making an unfair choice for your nonsmoking loved ones who are forced to be around you and your habit. What's sad is that I know people who quit and years later they still would really love a cigarette. Some start up again because they just enjoy it too much and are willing to gamble with their life and health because they don't know for sure how much their bodies can take. It's sad because a very small number of people CAN smoke and live fairly healthy lives. George Burns, for example! He was a cigar smoking freak! You should know he's a RARE case! You should never gamble with your life...I mean...if you value it, that is. Maybe you at least value other people's lives?
My grand parents died of cancer due to smoking and I'm almost certain it gave my grandma early memory loss so that she became a bit of a burden on close relatives.
I have smoked and it was fun! It looks cool and it's an excuse for breaks at work....there is also a comraderie between smokers. You can bum a cig off of just about anyone and it's a good icebreaker for conversations and what not. So? Your life is more important. If yours isn't...maybe your boyfriend's is?
Anyway, making an informed decision while ignoring overwhelming evidence that smoking is bad for you and others IS stupid. Maybe you have a different definition of what stupid is? Okay. You have to get over your ego(everyone's worst enemy....mine included) and admit your wrong sometimes. So you might be wrong? So what?
Anywhoo...if you know you can't quit because you are surrounded by people who smoke...well....I CAN understand that. It's still not a GOOD reason to smoke. You might have to set an example for your boyfriend and quit. See what he says...maybe he'll quit with you. Choose to be smart and don't be angry at me for being right. Be angry that your addiction has so much power over you and live healthy. It's your life, though. Don't do it for me. Do it for yourself. Do it for your lungs? Just do it! Yeah!
