What are you up to? by longestdistance What are you up to? by longestdistance
A feeble attempt at Gargantia fanart :iconlazycryplz: It's supposed to be Ledo and Amy but I really just wanted to draw the ship structure with the clouds in the background. And I got really lazy with everything xD;;

I finally have some free time so I decided to draw this. I rushed through it because I want to get started on other stuff :0

I think after Titans, this is probably my favorite Spring 2013 anime. I love original animes because nobody knows what is going to happen next episode, and you can speculate. It's so much more fun than "next episode will cover chapter 34" or whatever. Everything is a surprise! Also, this anime has a really, really good soundtrack.
I just don't like the pacing, it's just random SOL hijinks and then suddenly the last few episodes are PLOT. The final episode is airing in a couple days and I really hope nobody dies ;_; I hope Ledo lives happily ever after and exercises his reproduction rights with Amy :iconheplz:

Man I wanna draw more fanart

Hey, I really, really like this pic. I finished the series recently and I loved it sooooo much! Can't wait for the second part of the OVA to come out.

That said, I was wondering if I could use the pic as a cover on ff.net? I have a Gargantia fic in mind (well, it's almost done, just waiting on a few more tiny edits and a name) and I find this to be really fitting with what I have in mind.

I tend to really like doing backgrounds, so as long as you enjoy what you're doing, I think there should be minimal problems :3 (at least that's what I would like to think haha)

It's kind of slow in the middle, that's my only complaint about it. The middle episodes are just random SOL hijinks and then suddenly PLOT

I just finished the anime today, and I have to agree, Suisei no Gargantia has one of the best if not the very best sound tracks out there (my fav soundtracks aside from Angel Beats sound track, now that sound track makes me cry...)

So many flutes TT^TT

I love this, the colors of the sky especially. I ship Ledo x Amy too, at first I didn't really, but its just too adorable to resist! I'll miss Chamber. Now all I have to do is wait for SNG OVA...

longestdistance Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Yeah! I listen to the soundtrack every day now. And the flute tracks are really calming and nice to listen to ;u; (My favorite is the track that plays at the end of the first episode)

Thank you so much! ;u;

Thank you so much! Those are my favorite kinds of sunsets too. I love when I get out of class in the evening and can just admire the sky all around me. Especially if it's just after a storm. So pretty!
