This was one of the unused ideas I had for a contest, reused as a cell-shading experiment! I'm so happy with how much my speed has increased, little pieces like this only take ~3 days now if I work hard c:
One of the succulents(plants) in the foreground is a plectranthus. I got one the other day and it's one of the best things ever, if you rub the petals it smells like lime !!

Posted on my tumblr here!

So cool to see a depiction of a woman immersed in the verdant world of her own art and mind. Thanks for posting. Sensational and evocative piece.

I can absolutely see this working as part of an illustrated storybook, how beautiful! The ambient is so immersive, and the whole image brings out a cheerful imaginary nostalgia. The succulents are precious details, I never knew there was something like the plectranthus! Keep up the lovely work!

Prettyyyy.  I love the succulents everywhere, pretty sure I have one of these at home actually.  Overall it looks like a very peaceful calming scene.

It's fantastic! Love everything in this illustration!! <3 :) Do you use some texture upon the drawing or it's all becauce of the brushes? 
Reluin's avatar
Thanks! I think for this image there was a texture for the wallpaper behind the character, and a paper/noise texture over the whole image, but that's it! Otherwise this was just the normal round brush.

Thank you :) :) it's a very inspiring drawing! I guess it's all in the atmosphere and the details, but the technique is also very beautiful...
