Blooming creativity. by longestdistance Blooming creativity. by longestdistance
This is the first of the 4x4" drawings for my Small Delightful Things project. I've started a collection of small artificial flowers. Not only are they a nice decoration but they make for great reference material. I think these pink peonies are my favorite!

Also, I recently posted in the DA suggestions forum about making a new category for digital floral artwork. Here's the post, so please vote if you are also interested in a new category: support.deviantart.com/hc/en-u…
 It's only a shot in the dark but think of all the awesome floral artwork other artists could post in there as well!
Excluding the category cheaters... shame on you. :iconiseewhatyoudidthere:

This is so soft and pleasing to the eyes. But more so the concept is fantastic. I like how you drew the flowers branching out, it gives the feel that it's growing and spreading (perhaps as the growth of the artist too happens). Truly wonderful!
Honestly, I think a floral category would be indeed amazing. I love drawing florals too, I can totally see myself posting more if there was such a category.

Thank you so much! That is another great way of looking at it. As my skills grow, so will the flowers!
And yes. I need my Floral category. :iconmoarplz:

I love this new project that you're pursuing, they're really so delicate and intricate and lovely!  This is almost like in RPGs when you 'GET' an item, but illustrated so gorgeously :heart:

upvoted for sure!

Aaaaaah so pretty! It'd be so nice to have actual paint brushes like that -////////-

I second that motion for digital floral work too! >.</ (it'd be a lot easier to catch ppl who abuse the category)

Thank you! It makes me wonder if they are magical paint brushes and have some sort of special effect, making them different from an ordinary paintbrush. Might be worth exploring!

And I know right. I'd be like an angry old dude yelling at kids to get off his lawn. Or in this case, stop posting irrelevant stuff in my category! :shakefist:
