(Artist Alley F09) Aug 31st- Sept 2nd, 2018.


Created March 9th, 2017. Photographed March 14th, 2017. 
Here the flowers have aged into hues of sepia, figuratively dusted with just the hint of color that remains from their vibrant days. The flowers having shrunk, you can see the bright yellow sunlight warming the page. I wanted to express the feeling of vintage.  

See the before version here.  
The artwork is not the final result. It's the message found between the two.

Character: Babylon "Baby" © NasikaSakura (me)  
Dimensions: 8.5 x 11 in (21.59 x 27.94 cm apx)

Oh, that is such a cool heart!
Awe, glad you think so. :D Thank you for sharing your opinion. I wonder which one individuals prefer. I have the ages version pinned to my bedroom wall beside my computer. I do enjoy it. :meow: Even if it's not as mechanically refined as my other work.

Ooo sounds interesting! I like this version of the picture a bit more because I can see "Baby" more clearly :) The only thing that kinda looks odd (for me at least) is Baby's neck. But I'm still learning that art is flexible and many things can be exaggerated, especially in anime and cartoons :)
That's why I like your art - you're very expressive in what you draw! :D :aww: rainbow heart 2

Thanks! Yeah, the neck must look strange with all her hair pushed back. Her hair is very poofy and droopy, so her long thin neck and legs counterbalance it visually. With the hair put of the way, it's just blatant. XD I can totally see that. She's also stretching her neck with her chin up here, so it is exaggerated.

Yeah lol! But it's fun to exaggerate things sometimes~ :heart: :+fav:

It suites a purpose. :D
Exaggeration is what makes illustration so fun.
