Old Books (with making) by JaneMere: is no doubt a fantastic piece! The soft colors and perspective are absolutely incredible, and the details and flow of the girl's hair are excellently done. The 16th-century inspired character design is interesting, too.

This is really beautiful. I can feel the warmth of that light, and the paper also.
