Hey Guys, Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New years !

I was planning to finish this off in December but Stuff came up >.< I wanted to paint something sad, yet happy at the same time.

I often see homeless folks on my way to work, and it pains to see them some times, especially when it’s so cold out.  Sometimes I would give them my lunch because I don’t have change and it’s better knowing they will not be hungry for a while. Sometimes I see homeless folks with their pets too >.< I paint this because I’d like to think that the homeless can be just as happy as the people who has a home, or at least for some ;w; Lets not forget them during the hard times…

-used: Photoshop CS 6

That boy in the back, his sad.

I'm not homeless, the gutter and alley is my house. I'm just a victim of mental illness and cannot even get the urge to move my lazy bum to collect my welfare check. Because instead of food stamps I'd rather spend the money on the essentials. Such as drinking booze and smoking crack and cocaine.

Fuck the homeless people and elderly.

I really really like this picture~ She looks so energetic and hopeful, yet she looks sad at the same time! I was wondering about the other one in the background though. Is it a girl or a boy?

So rich and detailed, you feel sadness yet also are shocked at how a cute girl could be there..
Superb work!!  *gives her all her money to the cute girl*

We give people our crackers when we're on road trips... ;~; we never have spare change, but we usually try to dig something up. I once saw a guy on the major deegan, he was holding a cat in a baby sling, and carrying around an old coffee cup for change. I felt bad for him, and bad for his cat... This is beautiful, I love the dragon and the hope in the girls face...

I remember this one time we walked pass a homeless old man in the metro and for the very first time of my life I had a little bit of money in my bag, it wasn't much really, something like 1-5 $ max. But seeing him broke my heart I started to open my small bag and my mother saw me. She grabbed my collar, took my bag and literally dragged me behind her for the rest of the small. I was speechless to see how insensitive she could be in front of someone who need help and support. I understand now that she would have give him anything if we hadn't been (and still are) in such a difficult and unstable economic situation but it still kinda broke my illusions about adults in general. This piece is  very pretty and meaningful. :) I think its like the fifth picture in a row that I comment of you xD

This is a beautiful picture and it's sad yet somehow hopeful... I just have one question, I've been trying to get one of my characters to sit in basically the same position that the girl is sitting in yet I've had no luck with it looking right and I can't find the right reference! Is it possible for you to upload a simple pose reference for the way she is sitting?
Wakana-xchan Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2014
Suddenly I feel the urge to adopt them, is the effect it had to occur? because it worked! Love 

Forgive my bad english please
It's amazing how you can create such an atmosphere. I feel sorry for the girl, she looks so hopeful and sad at the same time. 
You can be proud having such great skills.

I try to help too, I always do the Toy/Food Drive when it's around.
Me: Why don't you both come with me? I have plenty of room. Your pet can come too.

FairyofThunder22 Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2014
But I really meant it. I'd let them come and stay with me.

You're one of those artists that can make art that pulls on my heart strings like a marionette. I am simply helpless in the face of your art. This was the first piece that I had seen attributed to you, and instantly I wanted to know more. I can firmly say, I am now one of your fans. You inspire me to do things. Thank you for this feeling, and thank you for this work.
