i'm pleased i was able to pull this off. i have to admit i doubted myself a little at the beginning, but i was able to follow through!

this work is 100% traditional. there are so many details included in here, i hope you can take your time viewing ... please enjoy. ♥ i might do some more tweaking, but i'm fairly sure this is final.

this is the first time i've used colored pencils without using ink to lineart everything. it was a real challenge, but it didn't turn out too badly.

i also did a lot of color experimentation. it took a lot of courage for me! but like my other contest entry for #Knite-Fliers, this contest has pushed me a lot to explore the true meaning of art ^^ i'm truly grateful to two people for that-- `yuumei's art and =Lilla-chan's contests have changed the way i see "art."

i challenged myself a lot with perspective and lighting. comments and critique would be amazing. thanks for viewing. ♥

Haha, I really love the concept of this drawing!!! I like the colours and all the details. It is nice how you made the background look really "childish" and let the child stand out and look more realistic. :)

I like the composition and the fact you included colour into the shadows. I also like the perspective used. A small critique would be that the little girls arms are a touch too long considering the proportions of the rest of her body, but it's not very noticeable. And of course the image itself is very cute :) I could see it being a page in a children's book.

thanks so much for your comment, it means a lot to me! i've always admired your work.
i see that a little more clearly now, thanks for pointing it out (: could i ask your advice on the overall proportions (esp the chair) and perspective?

And thank you for your comment. It's nice to hear that I have a least one person who admires my work :)

I'm not much of an expert on proportions or perspective - I still have a lot to learn myself - but I can give a little advise. The proportions of everything in the scene seem alright to me, nothing looks out of place because it is too big/ or small. If you have trouble getting the proper proportions for people, it's always good too look at a lot of references from real life and from pictures. It's also important to know some basic anatomy too. But I've been trying to draw little kids lately for a couple of projects and I'm actually finding really hard to get their proportions right, so looking at reference really helped me.

The overall perspective is very good, but the chair is a little bit off. It's hard to describe but it's like the floor is slightly warped in that area and the chair is dipping down into it? Usually if your looking at something you've drawn and it doesn't feel right, it means something needs to be fixed. But I don't think you need the fix the chair because I feel like it works that way it is. Perspective is really hard and I know I'm horrible at it, which is why I read about it and look up a lot of tutorials: [link] or [link]

Hope this helped.

you're very welcome ^__^

it's definitely helped a lot! i have to admit that i probably noticed those two things you mentioned while i was drawing but didn't bother to fix it too much- and by the time the mistakes got more obvious, i was too far into the drawing to fix it ^^;
thank you so much!

xD Sorry for the late. Hadn't had internet. It's also pretty daunting to come back to dA to see 970+ watch updates.

XD Anyway. It looks very awesome already, but I can imagine how cool that might be!!
