Oh well, never again-- or maybe? I liked doing this, however the graphic is not my style.

Stylized on video by *Mikeinel callen 'Draw with me' you should watch it, it's on his account and youtube.

The image I am getting here is that the boy and girl met online (perhaps on Deviantart).  Their relationship bloomed, to the point they fell in love. He tried to meet her face.  Unfortunately, he was caught by a psycho and though he managed to escape, call the cops, and have this guy arrested for hostage taking, he lost his drawing arm.  The main flaw in this theory is that he would be able to see her face to face, he just could not draw anymore.

Another possible interpretation is that the girl is a fictional character and the boy is from our world trying desperately to reach her because he idealizes her.  Her actions and reactions are totally in his mind.  When he injures his hand trying to break through the TV (it is not on, so he does not get electrocuted), he realizes he has to live in the real world and fiction cannot satiate his intimate desires (and by intimate, I do not just mean sexual, but emotional as well).  The final part comes when he gets a new TV two weeks later and the "I can't Anymore" means that he has accepted the fact that he will never truly be with her and is moving on.  The only possible flaw I could find with this interpretation is that given the image that comes into our heads when the words fanboy and fangirl are spoken says that the sexes should be reversed.

What do you think?  Do you think either of my interpretations are correct?  Is this the message you got from seeing this short?

Actually when it comes to the original video this art was inspired with, I son't want to see a message in it, it's beautiful as it is: two people who care for each other but can't be together, still they try.

But when it comes to story behind this art I made, it's related to your second interpretation, but...

...In reverse, the boy is a fictional character and the girl is from our world, and nobody idealizez anyone because the fictional boy actually found himself in the real world where they met, and then-- ... well, just read this short trailer and you'll get the idea: aqua999.deviantart.com/art/X-M…

Okay, maybe that second theory would not work.  When I posted that comment, I had stopped Draw with Me after about two and a half minutes because I thought the rest would be credits.  You have to understand that Draw with Me came at the end of a long list of internet videos recommended by Mr. Enter in two Admirable Animations of his. www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MEkTm… In most, if not all of the other videos, there were credits at the end.  After watching the part where the girl (named Lilian, I checked) gave the boy (name Zephyr, again, I checked) her arm, my theory was officially jossed.  Apparently, there are also links to all sorts of follow ups on the TV Tropes page for Draw with Me including one that explains why they couldn't just use a ladder.  By the way, here is the TV Tropes page in question. tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php…

I think you're kinda being rude about the comments.
Sorry but this is fanart to the video, so of coarse there's going to be comments about the video.
Also, you shouldn't request anything from the viewers of your art.
You should be happy about even getting "just" a fave.

Comments about video - ok. Most of comments being only about video - NOT ok.
This is my opinion and I have right to express it in description.

so basically if they put: "I love the video!! It's so sweet" it's not okay?
Because you just want praise on your art??

Never mind, I just got completely confused in the origins of this.
I thought this was based off of a popular webcomic, but, it turns out, it wasn't.

Good job. Amazlingly cute video as well. I loved it. Nice tribute. ^.^ The feel in the background and art style is perfect. Though perhaps you should redo it with the animal characteristics, make the positions loook more natural, maybe make the girl shorter that the boy and give a little more clarity as to where the direction the light is coming from. It's an amazing tribute to an amazing video. Good job.

I didn't want to redo it with the animal characteristics because those characteristics are not the ones from the video. They do not have animal characteristics, and they will never have.
About direction the light is coming from - it's a weird, empty world where they are, so, we can say nobody knows the source of light.

I guess I wasn't watching the first released video then. The version I saw featured the girl with cat ears and the boy with bunny ears. Since I'm sort of a nerd, I prefer them with the animal ears.

If you ask me, where the light is coming from in each picture varies depending on where the people in it are. In the beginning, the boy is pretty big and is sort of in the middle-right side of the picture, so the main light source(there were still smaller light sources around other places but this one was the biggest or shone the most) was in the bottom right corner in order to highlight the boy in it. In your version, there are two focuses and in order to highlight them both, the main light source would be in the middle. It's been a while since I've seen the video though, and it wasn't even the original. I'm probably wrong. That's just how I understood it.

I'm a noob at this really, and I don't really know much about digital art yet... so my advice to you probably wasn't very good. However, I would still love to see a picture you did of them with the animal ears, looking like their moving more fluidly, and the light based on what I've told you above.

Also, I admire the way you shade and your art style. If you would, I'd like you to check out some of my art and give me some of your advice.
