I've got a friend, she's mentally challenged, and SUPER sweet.

She's from Hawaii.

Chleo R.

May I just say though, she's married to someone else... Sorry 😐, he's a great guy too, very effervescent.

I've got a few pics of her on my page thedarklord2000

In a book I'm writing that majorly focuses on an alternate history of recent events, the Hawaiian royal family reestablishes the Monarchy.

Sounds like an interesting book!

It's just a background fact of the story. The kingdom of Hawaii doesn't play much part in the story.

I need to thank you for this! This is such a respectful and beautiful portrayal of our last princess! I love the way you drew her coming out of the ocean! And how her hair is down, because I've only ever seen her portrayed with her hair up. But the hair down makes it feel... Wilder? Anyway, the flowers are also really important to me because it feels like she's wearing them to connect herself with her home! Every detail is amazing! Thank you for treating her with such respect!

Aww, you're very welcome! I'm glad you noticed the detail of the flowers.
