:iconarcem-alva: For Bells and Blossoms prompt -- the types of bluebells and all ...!

I wanted to draw a picture surrounding Lorna, and this composition came to my mind when I read the words... for our sweet princess, tried a fairytale look hence the flatter elements and silhouetted characters.
cue unnecessary rambling but my general references were disney concept art for the verticals and colours (sleeping beauty, frozen); utena (I haven't watched it yet still though T T but those gorgeous composition shots...!), and silhouette/shadow animation-- eg. popularly adventures of prince achmed. Lovely stuff. 

ICly Stitches had one heck of a night during the evening ball and garden party, all thanks to that terrible asocial tongue of his.

This was also the first time I've rped in quite a while, so just thank you so much to the people who played (and are currently) with me; writing's never been a forte so I get pretty self conscious with most others... but it's been super fun !! (I've probably said this before whoops)
Also wanted to draw out the folks I played/hc'ed with – I got a bit over ambitious, but as always, thanks guys!

Lorna and bachelors - Lost-In-Canada & ye other lovely mods

Thank you, when I was working on it they kept fluctuating between too saturated and too dark, so nice to hear. :) 
And Happy New Years to you while I'm at this, hehe.

I really miss the opportunity to be able to write comments on your pictures - I'm happy to see I've got the chance here ~
This is a real masterpiece... I am able to look at it for quite a while and still I find new details, that my eyes haven't catched before. Thank you for that experience!
I especially enjoy the idea that you are only able to see Lorna in full colour and the rest of them stays in silhouette. This gives an interesting focus :nod:
And this colour scheme is amazing!

Ahhh I'm so sorry about that TuT! Since I genuinely do love reading your comments but never make the time to reply properly... until it's so belated, lol. But thank you, I am glad to hear that there's more to draw your eye-- I admit while working on this it felt very simple to me in retrospect so this was good to know. :) 

Thank you too for noting the colours! The more green-blue is certainly not what I'm used to using, but I grew quite fond of this picture's palette so I think I'll try some more with that range, hopefully.
Your words are very sweet, I'll keep working at it! :D

screams back excitedly -- though I feel it's a little plain to have those attributed but yessss thank you kishishisshi :iconloveloveplz: 
And LMFAO I COULDN'T HELP IT, logan had some pretty amazing actions in the game. 

But yes answers to this comment -- I think we did discuss a little bit of eoghan & marcus, like just possible meeting times? But I imagine things grew busy for both of us... it's really not an issue at all, I don't ever mind. :b Am definitely always open for chitchats whenever, hehe.

Keeps this comment in my inbox 5ever because you write the cutest comments LOL-- 
But ehehe thank you as always...! Both yours and canada's talk about utena was what had me looking more of the screenshots up to try and incorporate, so the two of you were definitely an influencing part on that aspect.
Just do it indeed :iconshialabeoufplz:  

LOL THOUGH your dress was beautiful, I just looked at it and the image reference you had on the pic as well to scribble out the other stuff! But I am glad that you don't mind it hehe. Fave part is drawing everyone else in the first place :love: Just.. looks away from those comics LMFAO and qwops back to the doc to reply, bless phea
