That was my home city. I grew up in New Orleans and now my house, my belongings, everything is gone maybe even some of my friends. I can't go back home.

Simple. But it casts so much emotion, for me...
An instant Fav+ for me. But I still can't believe how long it's been...

faving cause it's so emotional:crying:
Coronadofwb Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2005
Wow. I live in Florida and Katrina was expected to come straight for where I lived first. That was one of the most terrifying weekends of my life. We were hit hard here by Ivan, but that was nothing compared to what this storm did. But the only reason it was really devestating is because a levee broke. And what was worse is that people started blaming each other for the consequence of the storm. It's heartbreaking.

I saw this one in the forums too a lil while back. Oh, so sad... It makes me just wanna cry. Well, wonderful job. Very, very good.

Awweee, very cute and artistic! Me likes! :D
Roko-Epsilon Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2005
Simple and to the point, yet very deep and emotional. The black and white just adds to the mood, too.
=( I feel so sorry for all those people just couldn't get out in time, you know? Poor things.

Wow, I saw this and was on the verge of crying... honestly. I'm a big fan of Danny Phantom so... Just wow.

I think this deserves a :+fav:.

I saw this a week ago but never got the chance to fav I finally can.

I'm sure you heard this several times already by now...but...the emotion is so beautifully portraited, the burrying his face in hand while at the same time facing away, sitting alone on the single standing lamp with water flowing calmly below, the simplicity of black and, I'm not too good with expressing all of the feeling I'm getting from this picture... ~__~;;

One thing for sure, you've done a wonderful job. Sad picture, yes, but it's amazing how well this picture can effect one's emotion...and I pay my condolence to all those vicitims out there.

It wasn't me, It was a sad picture that Danny Phantom is really sad.... Daaaw.... Why me? Why him? :(
JjcL237 Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2005
this is wonderful. somehow i keep picturing the cartoon character danny phantom sitting on that streetlamp!
REDiosa Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2005
This is really an amazing piece. I really can't put into words the feelings it provokes........just amazing.
I was born in NO and have family that don't know if they will have homes to go back to. But I am truely thankful that they are all ok. And thank you for giving hope, through your art. We must see the beauty of life, even in the most ugly times.
masterofchibiness101 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2005
I for one am not a Danny Phantom fan, but this picture really hit me, the colors show the emotion of the picture and makes people think what they can do to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina, I was hit by the same hurricane but as a catagory 1 but that alone felt like a 5, but after seeing it New Orleans I thank G-d till my heart content that I lived, but then I pray for the victims, and to tell the truth I'm usually the type of person who despises negative like art, but this one is diffrent, but in a good way, I love this art, keep up your style, its amazing.
SweetTails247 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2005  Hobbyist Writer
I am, in fact, one of the people who lives where the hurricane passed, lived, and still has a home. Also, i LOVE Danny Phantom! And it has caring for those who passed away in the hurricane and DP all in one picture! *faves it million times*
mistAwaytoAdream Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2005
Awesome work :hug: The world really needs people who care, thank you so much.

Very powerful. I have this as my wallpaper now as a reminder. The Civic Center here is now a refugee center with about 400 people last I heard. [link] is my take on it. Powerful picture to me, even if one isn't a Danny Phantom fan.
whitegryphon Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2005
I can create an actual wallpaper of that... Need to submit my GZ wallpaper too... I'll work on that now.
iceiwynd Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2005
The emotion on this is stunning. I love the simplicity.

I didn't get this at first...I saw Danny Phantom and I was wondering what he had to do with the hurricane, and then I thought more about it and I totally got it. :)
setsuai Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2005
Is that Danny Phantom?
whitegryphon Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2005
I can't say but I'm willing to wager a guess that it is. Hmm.
Ulta Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh my goodness...this pic is so sad...its got that gloomy feel to it, and the lack of color emphasises it...

I have to add this to my fav...not just because it's a good pic, but also to remind me of my sympathy for those poor people in New Orleans. :(
Axion-Pup Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2005
That's just chock full of emotion... I love the way Danny's turned away.

I just heard a rather disturbing story on 60 Minutes, about an old woman who was rescued after a week of being trapped up to her chest in water, then left on the side of the highway while her husband died of a seizure. God help the victims of the hurricane, I'm doing my best by praying every night.
SpearFox Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2005
That's deep. The picture is very emotional.
ceethrough Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2005
First the world trade center, then the tusimani, and now THIS.....
*sigh* iIt's times like this is when I think about how the end of the world is coming......and soon the forces of nature will consume us human beings competelty into nothing............

Anyway, I really like the pic. MUST FAV!!! BYE!!
