so knock me down, fill me up~

Any particular reason why the kokeshi is half buried here? (also the 'distressed' face instead of the usual smiling one made me wonder more about the placement)

Looks great all the same!!

Or, rather, my mom had a particular meaning in mind when composing that photograph, but my version has a different meaning to me.  When I make this kind of art though, I am more interested in how other people perceive it/what meaning the viewer projects onto it- sort of Rorschach test-like - than having my spin on it come through (though I express some of my impressions through the titles).

:aww:

Well I'm glad you're open to hearing what others think in this case.

I guess I do so much theorycrafting about say your expansive set of characters, but that's a whole other matter.XD;

I guess I never mind hearing what people think, but with my story-oriented art there are- for me- potentially 'right' and 'wrong' answers.  This is more open-ended.

It was a little hard to decide what part of the song to use as the title.  I kept thinking of it while working on this one though.

That's up to you to decide.......!

Thank you!
