For Kiehran
for winning Most Creative in Anniverse's Valentines 2018 contest.

She's an Annie with red squirrel and empire apple blessing.
♥ She loves apple cinnamon rolls and can sprout plants. 
I tried looking up empire apples themselves to draw from rather than the reference to try to add more details. ^^ 

I drafted if 4 times in 4 different poses and finally settled with this one. I need to practice more poses! This was supposed to be a looking down from above view, but that does not translate well with the legs and the shadow, which should have been more vertical. Ah, well~ I still think this ended up looking cute and it's a step in the direction of progress. ^^ Thank you for letting me draw your Annie, dear! She's my first Annie drawn. :heart:

It is very cute. I take Japanese Way of Tea classes and we had a scroll in the tea room last week where you read the calligraphy, and then you read the depiction of a snail as the literal word for snail in Japanese to complete the waka poem. One of my kohais said the snail made her hungry because it reminded her of Swiss roll cakes. And here I am drawing all these swirls myself! More swirl pastries! haha

Sounds very exotic, and I'd love to know more of Japanese culture! I never really saw snails as cute, but not that I'd ever harm those innocent creatures. I lean closer towards butterflies :heart: :butterfly:

I find them adorable because I'm a weirdo. XD 

It's chanoyu. Most cultures call it "Tea Ceremony" but that is technically incorrect because it has nothing to do with religious ceremonies. It's just very methodical, so from a foreigner's perspective, it resembled a ceremony. It is simply "The Way of Tea." I study the Sen sect under the Urasenke Foundation. I'm a second-year student and have so much more to learn, but I cherish every moment of it.

I feel like such a clumsy fool usually but I feel I've been vastly improving the past two weeks. I've received lots of praise on my progress from the senseis lately, especially today where I had little to no mistakes and when I did make mistakes, I was usually able to correct them myself. :D I'm feeling a lot more confident and coordinated. 

In the midst of all the troubles in my life the past two years, from my health, to family deaths, to personal relationships, and to changing environments, it has been my quiet, peaceful place. That is one of the major roles of temai. When you enter the tea room, the outside world and all that troubles you melt away. All that matters is in that moment, and in that encounter.

It sounds very respiteful :aww: I never paused to take my tea occasions that restfully, but maybe I should. I can imagine how soothing they must be~~ Tea

And with all the woes in my life it sounds like one of those Tea Ceremonies is just what I need~~ :heart:
