Far Beyond Our Reach by Skailla Far Beyond Our Reach by Skailla
Oh when the world,
when the world just seems,
a little bit too cruel
Gonna leave it better
Make one better


Lyrics from Coldplay's song "Don Quixote": [link] (Please, listen to it, it's absolutely worth it)

--

Steban and Martin have more relation with don Quixote and Sancho then you would ever imagine! xD

I've got to admit that don Quixote has always been one of my favorite books, ever since I was little :giggle: and while looking for some material, I came across Coldplay's song :heart: my emotions were SO strong that I just had to make a drawing! why does Coldplay have so many unreleased songs??? *cries*

I had promised myself that I wouldn't draw anymore Stebans and Martins, and would focus on the other characters now, but I just couldn't resist it! I just love drawing them! (and Delilah as well! :eager:). Just too much fun! :'D

Anyways, I tried something new here. Yes, perspective. My old, old enemy.
I know this looks pretty much pathetic if you stop to look at it, but I had to try and do this someday, you know? and besides, I had this drawing in my mind for so long now! But I was too afraid to try and draw it :/
Died while drawing the background, by the way :faint:

Enough blabbing!
I truly hope you guys like this!:la: It took me 3 days to finish! xp
Thank you very much for every comment and fave, I truly appreciate it!:thanks:
and I hope you have an awesome weekend!:dance:

I don't know why you're so unsatisfied with this nice piece... Maybe you have difficulties with perspective but I just cannot find any errors in the composing.

Those two remind me of Charlie and Itchy from the All Dogs Go to Heaven movie. :) In this particular drawing, that is. Not your style, the pose does.

Lol, Oh Don Quixote.....Such crappy,crappy memories of translating that one paragraph XD
It truly is a great story, though I'd possibly would've enjoyed it more if it was in English class rather than spanish. No hablo espanol :B (add mystical accent mark over 'n')

I really like the shading in this one. Is very different from all the others I've seen recently and I have to say that it is looking good. It adds depth to the characters and is certanly more interesting to look at.

Actually unaware of who Don Quixote is, but that doesn't surprise me, there's still a lot I don't know about.

Can't recall songs by Coldplay at the top of my head, look them up later, since I'm kinda sure I have at least one song on my playlist.

Didn't know that Marting wore glasses.

Great job here, and keep it up. Just remember not to run yourself ragged :).

Adorei XD! Acho que não conheço a história de Don Quixote :(
Mas a imagem está linda. Martin sempre resmungão XD, ele se tornou meu favorito. Você levou 3 dias para terminar!!! WOW!!!
Sabe o que eu acho! Você deveria fazer o que quizer aqui no seu DA, é seu mesmo :P

Eu sinto muita vontade de ver um dos seus primeiros "rabiscos"! desenhos beeem antigos!
Tenha um bom Final de semana também!

Puxa Vik, muito obrigada por isso!:thanks:
Eu fico realmente muito feliz!! Muito obrigada mesmo! (e obrigada pelo apoio!)
Ah, don Quixote era um homem que, de tanto ler histórias sobre cavaleiros e princesas, ficou louco e passou a acreditar que ele também era um cavaleiro xD Ele saiu pelo mundo caçando aventuras ao lado de seu companheiro Sancho Panza, que era o único que o apoiava nas suas loucuras :) ele uma vez lutou contra um moinho de vento pensando que era um gigante (e ainda por cima perdeu! xD)
A história é muito bonita (e bem triste ao mesmo tempo) mas vale a pena ler! É um dos maiores clássicos da literatura! Eu realmente adoro!

Ah... vish ahaha xD o pior é que eu criei uma conta a um tempo para colocar uns desenhos meus, de quando eu tinha uns 5 anos, até uns 11 (foi para o meu FAQ, porque alguém me perguntou como eu desenhava quando eu era pequena) se voce quiser mesmo ver, essa é a conta: :iconskgarbage:
mas esses estao bem ruins, os melhores eu dava para os meus amigos e para a minha mae, e no final, acabei perdendo quase tudo :(

mas de qualquer maneira, estou muito feliz com o interesse!! xD
muito obrigada, novamente!!! :hug:

I absolutely LOVE how you did this, the characters are very naturally shaded, and I don't see much outline at all, which makes them very 3D :dance:
the background looks so natural as well, and I love the tilted angle of this. The anatomy and proportions put me in mind of ADGTH.... :)
Hehe, Steban and martin make me laugh so hard :giggle: well technically, that's a giggle, but still...

Why is it that whenever I look at your arts description, you always criticize yourself on doing a bad job?

"I know this looks pretty much pathetic if you stop to look at it"

Come on! This piece (like all your other pieces) look incredibly awsome (atleast through our perspective), anyway, I'm going to stop now. And I never thought I would see Martin with glasses on. Makes him look noticeably for some reason. Anyway, keep up the great job!
