I'm one day late but I declare November 22nd (yesterday) the JacKairy day! :dummy:
3/3 gifty for my sweetheart in celebration to our 6 lovey years together. u//v//u
As I had stated a couple times before, Jack and Kairy are characters based on us,
but they don't physically match us, only in personality and symbolically. Basically,
what I tried to project here is along the lines of when I feel down or troubled he's
always there for me...And a lot more but I'll just leave it at that. '////////' This could
be unrelevant to the plot I'll give to Jesterday (heck, I have about 7 plots to choose from)

Hope you all like it~
Comments are highly appreciated.

Their expressions and the meaning behind it make it a sweet and heartwarming artwork! ( Suggested by Bunnchu and Featured by rydi1689 )
:iconprophetstorm:
I'm not even sure where to start. Perhaps with the remark that you obviously spent a lot of time on this--the attention to detail and the tender loving care poured all over it are quite apparent.
Next, I'd like to light on the subject matter. Coming at it with no knowledge of the source, a multitude of stories are possible. The Jester's calm smile and the Princess' shocked, frightened and sorrowful expression provide a delightful contrast. The breaking checkerboard flooring is a nice touch--it speaks of what was once order degenerating into chaos. The same thing happens on the musical staff as the individual notes abandon their posts. The background is nicely blended, and adapts to the character it's behind.
The emotion in the piece is immediately gripping, the color contrast and usage is rich and entrancing. The piece is thought-provoking and stirring in almost every way.
I'm not familiar with your work, so these two characters and their story (if they have one, which I'm sure they do in some measure) are foreign to me. My only issue is that I don't quite understand it, but that doesn't stop me from enjoying it. Despite this, I still give you a 10 out of 10. Bravo. It is truly a masterpiece.
What do you think?

Just curious, but do you draw this out on paper or anything first? Or do you draw parts of it on paper/whatever, and parts of it on Photoshop, or how do you do it? I can see that there's a lot of detail, such as the curtain in the background. I really hope you don't mind me asking you; I'm curious partly because I'm going to be getting Photoshop CS6 soon, partly and I really, really love this picture, probably one of my favorites on this site.

There are a lot of DDs that I've gone to look at once, thought "that's really good" and left without a word, usually never to return, but this one is different. Days after I first saw it and I'm still looking back at it.
I love the emotion and colors and I keep trying to think up a story behind it every time I come back. The composition is beautiful and I love the concept. I find the transition from a brilliant sunset to a curtain to a space-like atmosphere in the background. The details are executed very nicely and the textures are great. But I believe that his leg should be bent more, and her hand doesn't quite look right against her dress; as if it was just stuck there. But that's just me.
Overall, great work!

Good for you~ Congrats on the DD. I don't usually say that, but I found your work a long time ago and when I saw it on the DD row I recognized it and felt happy for you :3 Also for some stupid reason I thought DD's were only recent artworks lol so I was just like "Wait... what?"

Joyfool Featured By Owner May 11, 2013
LOL aww thank you so much!
I believe that happens most of the time to anyone who gets a DD, though now that I've taken count and all, I believe this piece didn't get a feature sooner because I had already gotten one in October, and the sooner I could get another DD feature was 6 months later, which I believe to be till April. C: I didn't ever think this could get a feature, I'm super happy~ Q////v////Q

Your work is really amazing and adorable and the colorsss ahhhhhh~ xD and your characters make me smile~ And this picture in particular, the lighting is just fantastic!

I'm glad this DD helped me rediscover your work, since I haven't seen it since I made this new account and stuff. I'm going to go fave everything now xD
