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!
