Compass of the Heart by KeikoKup Compass of the Heart by KeikoKup
Where is the COMPASS of your heart leading you?

The idea of this is the importance of having the mind and heart filled with good things. Instead of letting evil thoughts invade the mind such as lust or pride, it's best to be filled with happy, positive, and loving thoughts. One verse that just came to mind is,

"Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. (Proverbs 4:23)"

I think there are other verses that can relate to this picture too.

I struggle with this, especially with thoughts of pride and insecurities, but I'll keep loving God and believing in Him to lead me in having a pure heart. :)

Also, this is the first fully digital pic I've done in a long time. No ink, no scanner, nada! >:3 Yay~

God bless, be happy :peace:

You lead, I'll follow, Your hands hold my tomorrow,
Your grip, Your grace, You know the way,
You guide me tenderly,
When you lead, I'll follow,
Just light the way and I'll go,
Cause I know what you got for me is more than I can see,
So lead me on, on, on and on,
Just lead me on, on, on and on,

Wow, good work on those eyes of hers. Really good usage of black for this character as my own eyes could only stare into hers. Plus it contrasts nicely with the colored tone as well. Too well! Then I have to say another good job on her hair as well, since those kinds of curls aren't the easiest thing to draw out.

Also, I think you're one of the few artists that can use tone well enough and get away with it.  Honestly,  I wonder how a print of this would look like?

Thank you so much! u@ I'm really glad you like it ^_^ yeah the dotting/tone is something I really like to use in pretty much all of my colored pieces, I just love the graphic look it creates and adding texture like that in unlikely places is fun and creates a cool effect. And yeah those hair curls xD though hair is one of my favorite things to draw, so I usually go all out haha ^_^ the digital I'm working on now has similar hair curls. Also I'm pretty sure I have a copy of this printed out, if you're interested in buying one off me we could make a deal c: thanks so much again!

Thank you! I used Paint Tool SAI, and I'm not exactly sure how long it took. I worked on it over the course of a month or two when I had time
