Wow, cool, I think I'm going to color this one (it's about time, I keep saying I'm going to. . . but just watch, I won't get this one done either, XD)
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart;
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night,
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light.

Be Thou my Wisdom, and Thou my true Word;
I ever with Thee and Thou with me, Lord;
Thou my great Father, I Thy true son;
Thou in me dwelling, and I with Thee one.

Be Thou my battle Shield, Sword for the fight;
Be Thou my Dignity, Thou my Delight;
Thou my soul’s Shelter, Thou my high Tower:
Raise Thou me heavenward, O Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor man’s empty praise,
Thou mine Inheritance, now and always:
Thou and Thou only, first in my heart,
High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou art.

High King of Heaven, my victory won,
May I reach Heaven’s joys, O bright Heaven’s Sun!
Heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my Vision, O Ruler of all.

Wait, everyone's busy? That's impossible! How can there be so many busy people in the world? Okay, okay, I'm just goofing around! Hope you all can find the time...I know I have trouble too. I have an idea for this one...question is, can I pull it off in time... hmmm.

Oooh, the rose is a nice touch! Very nicely colored, LArt! The background is very Valentine's Day-ish too. Did you make that yourself?

It’s a pattern that I did for my mom on mothers day. I used a picture of lace for reference then tried to make mine look half as good. :sweat:

Happy Valentine's Day everyone. I had some spare time and decided to push myself little on this one...so don't run away people! Bakura_fan, I wanna see yours too, rose and all!

Well there's no rose in my version, and this relationship is on seriously rocky ground, unless you take a metaphorical view of things.

0.0 .......holy cow...... This is pretty much the first time I've ever had anyone color my work, and these are AMAZING! I'm just totally blown away by the hugely differing interpretations and how well done they are.

ILoveArt, the delicate feel you've put into it, and softness of the coloring. It really has a Valentine's feeling--makes me wish I had someone special to send it to. XD

Esoteric, wow. I never thought about it like that, but I have always loved fire/ice juxtapositions; it's way cool to see it here. The different possible interpretations of it make it particularly interesting.

Great job, guys! :thumb:

this is as far as I'm gonna get with the time I have left til I leave. the background is based off of a sunset picture I took of our view of the san Juan Islands. Hope you like...

http://img227.imageshack.us/my.php?image=february33uz.png

I accidentally saved it as a jpeg once...and it wasn't a good thing...I had to go back and redo some of the smudged areas. the only one I didn't redo was the rose. I also tried attaching the image...but I couldn't get it to work. anyway, all work done in paint.:shake: I can't believe I'm doing this...

That is awesome for paint, bakura.

I love the guy, he reminds me of Sesshomaru.
And the sky is very cool, I love the mixture of colors

I think you have definitely put yourself in the running.

Oh, the tree was a good idea! I hadn't thought of that, but it puts his unusual stance in a good context. Very nice concepts here, bakura_fan, I'm impressed. I especially like the two-tone hair!
