afraid? by saniika afraid? by saniika
EDIT2: Since noone as it seems watches the video I give here atleast link for lyrics...PLEASE READ THEM. [link] With out that it doesn´t have a point to comment this picture.
The idea is linked to them so I am not just trying to push you to read some random lyrics. Thank you.

A year before I didn´t had interenet, so I couldn´t get to things I like. Now I am catching up and work with material I wanted for so long.

(I didn´t discover this song just now)

I knew I have to do something with it. This song is really good. Not just the "beat" but the idea to.
First at the start I played withthe composition, but it ended up as a big portrait of Mister Bowie and the thought got completely lost.
I am not entirely sure if I am lucky with the result... :blank:

I post here 2 links->

(original videoclip)

(sung in the concert)

Personaly I think the concert version is better, it is more powerfull and !clean" and "plain" in it´s glory.
That´s why I decided to draw this picture in the concert outfit.
I adjusted the microphone with special ribbons...

I would like to kindly ask you to think about what I said, listen to the song, BEFORE you comment on this and try to lynch me.

I will not acept flame here. Thank you.

EDIT: download is much better showing the details. (for interested ones)

I kind of wish you would've drawn Trent (Reznor of NIN with whom Bowie made that song) with him as well...

Hab mir beide Versionen angesehen, und ich finde auch, dass die live-Version besser ist, die rockt!!
Dein Bild ist echt cool und voller Kraft, finde ich...

well thank you very much for the compliment, but I guess you misunderstood - the picture is portraiting the song "I am afriad of americans" not "afarid"

Or I misunderstood and you just kindly wanted to show me something interesting...(I gave a look on it ;) )

I did, but still. Lyrics like that are no reason to flame a picture... Or anything, in my opinion, but I suppose some people could get offended.

I understand your opinion, but unfortunately not everyone is sharing the same and I rather avoid problems, that´s why the "warning"...

And I am going from the fact that most people who watch me are from USA and in the age of teenagers - I know years doen´t poove inteligence, but~)...that might answer the question

Yuuu the song rocks :XD: the picture is amazing as always, Sanii-sama :aww: and just while watching the concert I realized exactly why I find this man so darn hot... he reminds me a lot of HYDE - if the Japanese singer was a bit more British, that is :XD: but what I meant is - he is a perfect proof that bishounen exist in Europe, too :XD:

To you rinfo, Jareth is an inspiration (was) to all J-Rock visual Key singers :D hehe..you could see the resembelance ;) (I think their job in cipyinr is bad,, but whatever.)

Yes, I know, he reminds on alot of people, since he inspires them (since he is really old, as you knwo already XD)
:hug:

I didn´t want to make a tribute or something (I mena on the singer) but more hint on the lyrics of the song :-S

Pheuthe Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2008
Oh yeah, he HAS to be an inspiration for them XD Really, the hair, the grin... lol XD
Yup, I know he is old, to be honest, until I saw the movie I always only knew him as "that weird guy who married that black model" ^^; *ashamed*
And I kinda got the message about the song with the American bows on the microphone :D

Teehee... I am a fangirl of all sex-on-two-legs men that come to cross my Internet path, so... yeah, I am :) Though mostly of his earlier years... just now I read on Wiki that he stated in seventies that he was bisexual... makes him even more lovable for me, teehee :) well, if you want to see the picture from the broken link, just google his name, I got the pictures off of the first search page... :)
