The Other Side of the Mirror by shayhalen The Other Side of the Mirror by shayhalen
Here, finally is the gift art for :iconhelloheath: It is her character Ling, and is a prize for winning a ~Unicorn-Club contest months ago.

I have been such a delinquent in getting this done, and I'm not satisfied with it. I think I could have done so many things better, so I'm sorry its not great.

As far as the picture goes, I wanted to draw Ling in two different ways, so I did her facing her mirror reflection. I found it hard to do a decent reflection, even if it is drawn differently, and sometimes that difference made it doubly hard because the differences created shape/size relations that were hard to match to the other side. So, I jumped in over my head, but it was a fun challenge.

I made a point to have the reflection show a different perspective as you may notice in the trees as well, but I did not have a truth in mind to the reason the reflection is different. Thereby you may decide for yourself what you think the mirror really shows.

I seriously like the perspective work with the mirror-world and the actual room that she is in. Nice job. definitely worthy of notice at the least, so don't put yourself down with it ;)
