Deaf by CoronaFox Deaf by CoronaFox
and i'm going to desperately search for the ref i used for this in my history until i find it because i never remember to keep it and when i do i will put it here and credit like a proper human being

Edit: whoops, here it is. [link]

ANYWAY moar shizune.

i need to stop but now that i did this i really wanna do one with lilly.

MS paint is so fucking difficult to work with though oh my GOD. I just can't get anything right.

this took HOURS TO DO. and if i had just stopped and started in sai that would have worked so much better but that means ms paint would have won >:C

but it won anyway because after i did the foreground i just said screw it and did the background in sai |D
BUT THAT WAS JUST SCRIBBLING GREEN EVERYWHERE SO

I didn't know that good things could be done in MS Paint!

I really love the composition of the image and the fact that it was done in MS Paint.  Your skill is impressive!  I find it fitting the theme of the reference image and how it is applied to Shizune; the disconnected headphones, her deafness and how the rush of sound is beyond her perception.  

That being said, it is my understanding of the deaf experience and deaf culture that sound is perceived visually and physically; e.g. dance, light shows synchronized to music and vibrations.  One of my deaf friends described to me that he enjoyed watching Micheal Jackson music videos because of the way the dance moves expressed the melody and its mood.  Along with feeling the vibrations of the speakers, he could get a sense of the music.

Speaking of music and deaf culture, I happened upon these fine folks, deaf rock band, 'Beethoven's Nightmare' (www.beethovensnightmare.com/).  Music video of their song 'Turn It Up Louder': youtu.be/2WkfI9GH_AI
