Inspired by this Song (How Soon Is Now? By Love Spit Love)

But honestly a lot of songs inspired this drawing.

This is my very last minute entry for the "Draw to the Music" challenge hosted by Zuzu Uchiha. I meant to draw something for this challenge a lot earlier but a lot has been going on in my life and I haven't been able to draw or make anything for awhile. This is my first drawing in 3 months. So I apologize for the quality first off, I know this isn't the best I can do but its last minute and I worked with what I had.

The character featured in this drawing is Serena from Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-V. I've always liked the Charmed TV show's theme song "How Soon Is Now?" By Love Spit Love (original by the Smiths).

What inspired me about this song was the music and the lyrics. I'm at a point in life where this song really fits me and I think it fits Serena too just for the fact everyone is suspicious of her because she's from the Fusion dimenion (long story may explain later) in Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-V. She just wants respect and to be treated fairly.

The lyrics "I am human and I need to be loved" really apply to her and me for that matter. I've been going through a lot of turmoil lately and like Serena I too feel alone in the world. I know logically I'm not but sometimes you can't help but feel that way.

The music also helped me get this drawing started. This song just means a lot to me, I grew up watching Charmed and this song was its theme. I always liked listening to it, was amazed to hear its full version. This is one of those songs that have meaning to me. I'm sorry if this explanation is a bit all over the place, I did my best.

This drawing was done in traditional style with a regular pencil and ink pen. I tried to add shading and give Serena some definition. I attempted to draw like a night time city silhouette with a moon because Serena's deck is moon based. Anyway I enjoyed drawing this. I hope everybody enjoys the drawing too.

Quality isn't the best due to the fact I took this with my phone's camera and I wasn't able to connect my phone to a computer to enhance it. Hopefully it still looks ok. I did my best. I may color this sometime when I get the chance. Also will upload a watermarked version later. My username is in the drawing.
