But he wasn't there.

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-05-30
The suggester stated on how he loves The Wind by ~MARYMARU, about how memories are special in our lives and to see love in the things that we do in honor of our loved ones. Mary's comics are way too awesome: from the drawing, the colors and much more when you catch and see the stories behind her drawings. You can find more gems in her gallery so be sure to check them out! ( Suggested by Azzedar-san and Featured by jcroxas )

You should have moved him at some point. I bet that upholstery is ruined.

The colouring is marvelous! I feel a very strong sense of nostalgia from this piece and I just .. I can't get over the brush techniques, I'd love to try it out traditionally one day.

one of the most emotional things I have ever seen. And it reminds me of my own grandpa when he passed years ago.

I'm glad I saw your work, I guess I should pay my grandpa's tomb a visit. :)

Such emotions can be conveyed far better with pictures than with words sometimes, can't they? I have to say this is one heartbreaking example of that. Just... Wow. I wish I were better with words. I wish I had more to give you than words! But then, if your breathtaking art needs no words, perhaps neither do my feelings, and perhaps you will somehow be able to grasp them beyond the page and know what they mean, as you have conveyed so much to us with no words at all...

Awe, this was very lovely, and the art was cute. You know someone did a good job conveying a message, when you feel the story, and it has no words. Pure definition of "a picture is worth a thousand words"

Hm. So as a kid he lost a balloon, what at the time seemed important. But now, older, this "kid" understands what's really important, which is his apparent mentor.

As for why he's flying him around in the plane, I would think the old man asked to go for a final flight; his dying wish. And in his beloved sky, he passes on.

My thoughts for the coin. Love the what the comic expresses and the story it tells in such a seemingly short time.

This is what I think as well. Although, I add that the balloon tied around the mentor's wrist is a symbol of loved ones lost.

The comic is so great I can't describe it. it's awesome. I just have to say, the borders are a bit anticlimactic. I'm not sure how to make it better, due to my lack of experience with comic, but if white was replaced with black, it would better perhaps? :?

Why is there a dead guy in his plane? I know it's his mentor or whatever. Still, why is he dead??
I don't think I get the story completly… :/

Still, the art is nice.
