The Only Hope For Me Is You by WheresYour-HeART The Only Hope For Me Is You by WheresYour-HeART
Sorry for taking so long to submit the finish on this. It became quite difficult to complete as it was very personal to me especially over the past week. I usually leave the interpretations of my drawings open for you, but would like to interpret this one. Interpretation: This drawing is about friendship. The individual wearing the jeans with the holes on the left represents our old friends. Like our favorite pair of jeans we refuse to throw away no matter how many holes they get in them. These jeans fit comfortably in our lives much like our old friends. The one on the right with the new or modern styled belt represents our new friends. Sometimes in life things become difficult and our friends are there to be our hope. They give us hope when the pain is much too difficult to bear. To be our strength when our strength has failed us. So this drawing gets dedicated to friends. :heart:

The title is an MCR song on the Danger Days album.

I am sorry...I forgot to mention that I did use a reference photo for this drawing. I am unsure who took the photo. It was an image that I found online: [link]
Special thank you to the lovely photographer who took this photo. :heart:

I used Derwent soft graphite pencils and Strathmore paper for this piece.

This is really beautiful.  I love the interlaced fingers and the interpretation of the drawing is lovely.  It's an excellent, and extremely well-timed reminder for me as well.  I've been having lots of issues with my friends over the last year or so, but instead of being there for them I pushed them away a lot.  I really appreciate you putting an interpretation to this drawing, because I really needed to be told that friends are there for each other, new and old, good and bad.  Well I'm getting together with them for Valentines, so I guess it's a good place to start!^^
I really love the shading on this drawing.  Like the softer more blended shading on th older pants, and the crisper shading on the new pants, I love those sorts of small differences.  The fingers are amazing as well!  How'd you get to be that good at drawing hands!?  I love the little differences of the hands as well, like the way one is smaller and slighter, while the other one looks to be more like a guys hand, all big and strong.^^  Overall I really like the texture as well....it feels very soft and close, gentle.
Love the way you used the MCR song as well!  I never thought of it as a song about friendship before, but it works very well!  That's the awesome thing about MCR, their lyrics are very woven and textured and there isn't just 1 correct way to interpret them.:D 
Congrats on the Daily Deviation too!  That's so cool!

Wow, thank you so much for all the very kind words about this drawing. This one is very personal for me. I can understand. Well I hope you and your friends have a nice day and happy Valentine's day together! 
Thank you for noticing the intricate details of this drawing. I wasn't sure at first how to texture the jeans so I just kinda messed around on a scratch piece of paper until I got the effect I wanted and went with that.xD Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. 
That is a great song and MCR definitely has lots of them to inspire drawings and any other art as well. I agree, the interpretations can vary. I am very happy that you like this drawing and thanks so much for the comment!! :heart:

You're very welcome.  Sorry if I went on and on, but I like giving detailed explanations on why I really like a particular drawing.  Friendship is very personal, it comes across very well in your drawing.  Valentine's was terrific, thanks so much for saying that you hope we'd have a nice day.:hug:
I adore the detail you put in.  So you're welcome.  The jeans are very cool.  Ahh, sometimes the greatest ideas come to you with a piece of scratch paper.  It's handy to have.^^
I think that this song is like, probably my favorite on Danger Days (REALLY tough choice), Bulletproof Heart in close 2nd.XD  There's so much room for different stories in all of their songs.  And looking at someone elses idea of what the song means can get you to look at it a different way and get those creative juices flowing! 
So, love the drawing, and you're very welcome for the comment, it was my pleasure.

I don't know if you have Facebook or not.. but there is someone on there that is ripping off artists work and claiming it as their own. He's already tried ripping your work off and we have caught him [link]

Great work! I also saw this on FB. You can see it at facebook(dot) com/WzArdArtGallery13. He's already been called out by me and a few others but you might wanna consider telling him to take it down. He doesn't deserve the credit for this great piece.
