I'd like to make myself believe
That planet earth turns slowly
It's hard to say that I'd rather stay awake when I'm asleep
'Cause everything is never as it seems

--

Based on Owl City's Fireflies :) I can't help but imagine something like this when I listen to it ;u; fhggfhgfhgf <3

As always, more practice with backgrounds anndd trying different types of shading! 8D apparently I like switching between super-bold shading and paint-y shading, hmm. It's fun.

I'm not very fond of the tree, though...but ah well D|

Younger Sir&Claire (hence the lack of monocle) from the not-really-a-series-but-still Asterisk! :heart: and that's totally Frederick's greenhouse. Of EPIC dimensions.

comments & critiques are loved~ x)

THIS IS SO ADORABLE!

I love your Sir and Claire pictures. They're so... I don't know, they have that air to them that's just makes your heart feel warm. c:>

I'm cheap and gonna make this my critique.

The only thing I guess is to have the light of the fireflies affect the characters a bit more. You know, like, have little light spots on them?

IDK. XDD

But I LOVE this picture!! 8D

ffff do they? ;u; hee, I'm happy to see that I can actually communicate what I wanted to x) :heart:

And yeah, I added the fireflies at the end and thought I'd do something more with that, but couldn't think of anything that looked convincing enough... XD;

It does, it really does!

I love them! They make it seem kinda... I dunno, magical? With the glowing and whatnot.

It still looks awesome, though! VERY nice work!
