Take Me By The Hand by Raphaella Take Me By The Hand by Raphaella
Drawn from scratch on the comp, took a while getting her legs right. I actually drew most of it to the song Numb by Linkin Park (Thanks to Fuzzy for sending me that one, too), but halfway thru I thought of the lyrics from Avril Lavigne's I'm With You... goes better, neh?

"Take me by the hand, take me somewhere new."

The hand can be Gambit or someone. Full View works best

If you don't mind me I'm going to take this liberty and imagine that hand is mine.

A great picture deserves a great song, once again:

Here I Am Baby (Come And Take Me By The Hand)-Al Green

I can't believe that it's real, the way that you make me feel.
A burning deep down inside, a love that I cannot hide.
Our love is you and me baby,that makes the world go round.
And if you've been doin' lovin' with me, layin' all my troubles down,

Here I am, baby,come and take me.
Here I am, baby, come and take me,take me by the hand.
Show me, here I am, baby.

It always ends up this way,me begging you every day.
A love that I cannot have,you broke my heart into half.
Our love is you and me baby,that makes the world go round.
And if you've been doin' lovin' with me, layin' all my troubles down.

Here I am, baby,come and take me,
Here I am, baby,come and take me,take me by the hand.
Show me,here I am, baby.

When I'm down I can always call you,for a helpin' hand.
I know you'll do the best you can.
But it don't take much from me,just my cup of joe.
Oh there's love inside me,I believe there's one to be explodin',
It's tough for me, oh baby, I can do worry, tell me all your troubles.
You won't ever have to worry now.
Just one more thing, ask everybody,everybody you see,you'll find yourself lost and alone on a darkened street.

Here I am, baby, come and take me.
Here I am, baby, come and take me,
take me by the hand.
Show me, here I am, baby...

Nice pic. I especially love the detail on the gloves. I personally think women look very attractive in long gloves, they seem very elegant and classy, but I think that's just me. Again, nice pic.

.......... her skin looks like it's made of silver... amazing. So much emotions flows through this picture. And to think that it was I who gave the song to ya makes me feel really good:D The rain-effects are breathtaking. I could spend a year on this given my pathetic skills. Her pose, her expression, the hand helping her up... it's so beautiful. But speaking of songe, I have alot of others in store for ya next time ya show up. I think it's the right band and type of music for you;)

"Numb" could be when she's running and "I'm With You" could be when she's lying on the floor. Both good songs, though. I haven't got "I'm With You". Good rain effects too, dudette. You've still gotta try downloading "In The End" by Linkin' Park. If you can't get it, tell moi, Rebecca's got the album. ^^

I hate to say it (almost) but this picture envokes sad emotion in me.

It reminds me of what happened to a peer of mine. Only not as graphicially.

But this peice really stuck me, even as a small thumbnail.
