Edit: apparently this is also my 666th deviation. Of course it had to be Sat, of course it's her haha

Happy SATurday everyone! Sat is going around making new frens

Aggretsuko is a wonderful little show which I have thoroughly enjoyed watching, not only for its brilliant satire and characters, but also for it's amazing art direction.
I feel like everyone can find the show highly relatable in one way or another, the familiar struggles with the everyday life. We all have little Retsuko inside us.

The process of this painting was great fun (outside of figuring out the composition), really enjoyed going at it with the bald colours, and just remembering to relish the process.
Take it as a reminder, my dudes, that completing the idea is more important than making it perfect, as for it will never be perfect. Spare yourself the unnecessary frustration,
art is difficult as is. Remember to have fun, otherwise it's not worth it

Lovely! I love the colors!

May I ask why you always add these small symbols next to your drawings?

Thank you very much! salmon heart bullet 

Why yes! It's a part of the style, these little items I call "charms" and they are usually little things that reflect the picture's mood and/or the character. Or both! They also fill in the empty space for better composition at times haha. Usually, they try to convey a feeling or a message
