I could have loaded this one with heaps and heaps of micro-details. That was the original plan. But the more I painted, the more I realized how well the simplicity worked for this piece -- hazy like memories of a dream. The ONLY problem with that decision is that changing my plans halfway through affected the composition in a bad way. I've managed to fix it 90%. The 10% bothers me, but I'm going to move on. I'm re-learning how to let myself off the hook as a creator.

I still want to do a "heaps of details" picture... Saving that for another chance. 

The character (a boy BTW!) is from my comic Heart of Keol heartofkeol.com also on Tapastic tapastic.com/series/keol

PS. I have a tumblr now! keii4ii.tumblr.com

Ahhhh, I'm so glad to see art from you again! I'll have to watch you on tumblr, too, just to be sure I don't miss anything from overe there. 

This looks pretty gorgeous, keiiii. The colors, the perspective, and the movement all came together nicely! Even though this doesn't have all the details you originally planned, it definitely turned out well!

Thank you! BTW, I half-recognized your dA name ("Isn't this a person with really good art?") and I was right! Followed you back on tumblr :heart:

I love the colors, especially on the carpet/scarf. The tassels stand out especially. Beautiful!

Thank you! The fabric thing is actually a sleeve extension XD They're usually plain, like the one on the left hand, or have very simple decorations like thick stripes, but I thought tassels would be great to show off the motion.

Oh! I see that now, I thought it was like...they were holding a scarf or something, but yeah...what you said makes a lot more sense. xD
