-pleeease click this or view it in a new window/tab to see it full size. it would be a shame if you missed any of the details I put in-
THIS IS THE ACTUAL FULL-SIZE VERSION!

This is a picture I've been working on on-and-off for almost a year, for one of my best friends and favorite ppl in the world, KarolinaNoumenon, who has always been like a big sister to me ever since our friendship started years and years ago. I dedicate a lot of love to her and can depend on her even though she's not always around (and that's okay!)

In case you dont recognize everyone, it's my main characters that Kero loves, Goma, Neme andmaybesomeoneelseisthere, and Kero's (female) characters, Flu, Ink, and Raphael. and the star, Kero right in the center braiding Goma's hair.
I had lots of fun drawing all of these lovelies interacting with eachother and thinking of how they'd act together!

Uhh what else! I plastered the walls and floor with Raku-Kero paraphernalia (this was started almost a year ago, it seemed like a good idea!)
I did most of the work on this in the last month or so, and even moreso in the last week, due to inspiration hitting me from Kero herself!
This was very intricate and I wanted a huge room shot with a nice perspective, so I had to start out with a sketch. I scanned that in and used it as a base for the linework, coloring it was also a big job, and selecting colors to go with everything. The lighting was also a difficult, but fun learning experience. I did my best and dedicated a lot of time to ambient lighting, backlighting, taking light sources into account, taking reflective light into account, everything!

EH-HEM *glass clink*

Kero-chan has been a massive influence in my life and my art, and she's been there to pick me up in some of my lowest points in life. She's always been amazing and loving. She's got a sense of humor and can make me laugh or smile whenever I need a pick-me-up, and the same goes for me to her as well. She's helped me through huge life problems, been a shoulder to cry on, and always seems to know what to say. (really! it's like, really interesting how she just always knows what to say!) She probably knows me better than anyone.
Her art is beautiful, too. She has a grasp of elegant imagery and poses and her influences are clear, while she also has her own distinct style.
I love her a ton and she knows.

but it's always nice to get presents and stuff too!

rant, gush, blah, lookit my art I made for her ^

I saw this from a couple of days back but now i have the time to actually comment at least.:)

I really enjoy this picture and the awesome perspective and coloring, but I feel that's a already a given so there isn't much elaborating needed. though what I'd really like to  point out is the sense of fun that was put into it. it's almost like a dream in a bit of way if that makes sense? the lighting of the room just set the the atmosphere perfectly! everyone interacting with one another and having fun. even Misu and you behind the bed trying not to get caught in this "Girls only Sleepover". that's what I mean by dream. because to me it looks and feels like something I'd dream about with really close friends of mine also. it reminded me of the good old days when I was younger and my cousins would come over and we'd have sleep overs. so I guess Nostalgia kinda plays a part here for me. but just everything in this picture is well done. just the thought that they're probably planning to stay up all night whether it's watching anime or playing video games, the idea of that  sounds so exciting and I really do miss that feeling. I kinda crave it honestly. it's hard for to do that now a days since most of my friends are really busy we are all really busy.. so i haven't really had any sleepovers. but i don't want to get too much into that. it's a great picture!:)

Oh my goodness, that lighting! I mean, sweet mercy...

This is very fun to look at. So may references... It feels kinda funny to know I actually recognize more artwork in the walls than I recognize the manga on the floor, bahaha.
