Sorry it's so late! I can't believe I actually drew something after a year. But I really like this character design. Hope your birthday was a good one. :)

And it's Cedar now, yes? I hope I got her name right!

What a surprise! I know I commented on FB already, but just I'd like to add real quick, you have a very well distribution of colour balance. This is truly beautiful. Her face and the flowers are so delicate. :)
And yes, it's Cedar now, you're correct. Thank you once again, Asante! I'll have to pay you back for this someday with a better Soraya. :hug:

Thank you so much for the kind words! I'm honestly filled with joy that you love it so much! :heart:

And no need to do anything for me, yaar, you've done enough. I love all the art you did of her already :)

I can't believe you've at last updated after so long. (I totally get it, though). This is beyond words. This is honestly, I believe, one of your best paintings to date - a mix of a classic style with that of a modern one. I really want to say more. Gotta sit on this one for a bit, haha. :heart:

I'm working on your Beast of the Southern Wild drawing right now if you still desire it. :)
IKR? I've been dead for so long! I just really hated my art.
Been trying to do more realism now.

Just returned from the realm of suggesting this for a DD. Don't know if it'll be accepted or not, but I tried.

Aww don't worry about it, I never care for those. They never accept my recs. But appreciate it all the same. :)

It's still nice to recognise a piece that may otherwise get overlooked. That's what I mainly use them for. ;)

Here's my comment I attached to it as a head's up; not the best, bu whatevs: This is a provocatively emotive portrait that straddles the fine lines of the classic and modern periods of the art world, remaining simple in its composition yet succeeds in evoking plenty more through its character design and organic use of warm tones, all perhaps with the exception of her lips, the deep blue popping out among everything else.

I see so much good art on this site that doesn't get any attention, so I do try to feature them. Sometimes the staff overlooks it though not because it's not any good but because they're looking for something specific. Besides, I'm sure they're up to their neck in suggestions so they can't possibly pick everything. Sometimes you can resubmit a suggestion though.

Thanks so much for the comment nonetheless, I think you're exaggerating, lol. But much appreciated. :D

I know. It's a disgrace. Everyone has different tastes, sure, but Jeezuz.

You're welcome. Nah, that's how I really feel. Belongs in a museum. :hug:

Of course! I'd love anything from you!

Every artist experiences this at some point. A part of me is really craving to fall back on the classic styles I used to dabble with when I was younger.

Trust me, you're nailing it. ;)

I love classical art myself. Glad you think mine compares. :XD:
