Cherish the moment by Raayzel Cherish the moment by Raayzel
I've often been told by others to cherish my childhood, enjoy it and have fun while it lasts. I never understood why they told me those things, i had always believed that being older would be more enjoyable, i'd have a sense of independance, earn my own money and live life the way i wanted to. But as i grow older, bit by bit i begin to understand what they were trying to tell me. As a child I was lucky to live a pretty carefree and relaxed life, my troubles had only consisted of getting the toys I wanted. Now as the years are quickly passing by, the things i'm now concerned about ultimately affect the path my life will take. I'm still young but i feel as if i have more and more things to be concerned with now, and i know that this is just the beginning. Fortunately, i'm lucky to still have a few of those carefree moments in my life, where i can relax and laze around. But i've realized, i shouldn't take them for granted, and instead cherish those moments while i still can. Because sooner or later, i'll have little of those left.


I tried to tone down the colors to try and get the atmosphere i wanted, key word is TRY guys lol~! This piece killed me, there were alot of times were i just wanted to give up on it /OTL But i just told myself to finish it to the very end D< This will be my last full bg piece for a while, school's started again and im back to studying ; u;/ But for now i shall spend my last day watching a kdrama, haha so toodles!

u-uoijlkdmh every time i look at this, omygoodness ;;;n;; this is just so lovely. i really can feel.. the atmosphere ;o; i think you did an absolutely lovely job with this *-*;; the amount of detail is astounding as usual AHHHH but somehow this picture is just so calming, too? i love the square water splashes (...sorta specific LOL but i do like them!!) and the subtle colour change in the forest. ;v;
<3
a-awhh...
yeah ;n; enjoy what you can for now because this moment is the youngest you will ever be. as cheesily as that sounds LOL i feel like so many people forget that constantly, always trying to do more "grown up" things, pushing away their childhood, or just not... cherishing the moment AHAHA ;w; <3 ahh reading your description gave me a chill because that's exactly how i feel.. no longer really counting as a child AHAHA so much already changed this year and i know it'll continue to change a lot. but i'll try my best to enjoy what i can ;u; ♥♥

thank you for a meaningful picture <3
it's absolutely stunning.

Hey i stumbled across your work on here i'm liking your style!
Your art is very busy. There's lots to look at in it which is great cause you can stare at your art and look at all the lil bits an pieces in it or re look at it later to find a lil surprise which you never noticed before. Your pictures have a lot of life to them i could just picture it in reality without too much effort. I love the foreground and distance you have in there with the persepective Very cleverly done. Plus i like the fact that it's a picture set in a mid motion things are moving like you've taken a photograph of something in mid motion. I have to say i'm very impressed and looking forward to what you produce in the future. If you've got a moment check out my friend destinyblue she has a similar style.

This piece happens to be my favourite it

I'm no where near the skills that you have but i can give you constructive criticism on your pictures if you would like? If you ever do just lemme know and i'll give you some. Don't worry i'm very fair and i'll say what i like about the picture as well.
