Honestly, I don’t know what to say. I’m so tired of looking at this art piece, but maybe it’s because I’ve been working on it for soo long, it looks like crap now....

Sadly, it never turned out the way I had pictured it in my mind; ggrrhh~!! I did try to give up so many times on this one, cuz was hard to color using just colored pencils (which is the only art tool I’m good at unfortunately). My attempt to use water color was just a blunder.....:ohmygod:

At the beginning, it looked very promising, but later on as I began to add layers, I realized it was much harder than I thought; the colors didn’t blend right, also it looked kinda messy :crying: And it was rather frustrating as I couldn’t undo the mistakes, because of the fact that this was done traditionally. :unimpressed:

Now, it looks worse after the scanner practically ruined it~! So many details are lost:sadangel: I’ll have to think twice about doing something similar like this. So, all I can say is....

I have no professional training T__________T
Have pity on me :cling:

I don't have any clue why you are so upset with this piece: it is lovely! A hundred times better than I could ever do. *claps* You shouldn't put yourself down! Lovely. ^_^

I really was amazed that you took so much time to have it come out this way, its good you planned so far ahead. the only thing I can see making it better is having no pen lines in it, the sharp pen contrasts with the free wings. Its still fantastic though!!!

*huge gasp* I couldn't help noticing in the description that you thought it looked like crap or something HOW COULD YOU EVEN THINK THAT??? *knocks some sense into you* Graaaaaah! What I wouldn't give to be able to create a piece of work like this! (clicks on "add to favourites" heheh). ^_^ Keep up the excellent work and NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER (and so forth) say it looks like crap! O_o EVER! ^_^
