Dang o.O I had this same idea, and had been working on it for awhile >.> Gah, the people on here are way faster at art than moi.
Really great though. I love how you stylized it.

That...is...amazing. I could never do something as amazing as that, it just feels near-impossible for me to do something with that...awesomeness. Yes. I am incapable of drawing good, honest-to-God simple watercolors on paper like that. At least there are people who CAN do it awesomely. I'm looking at you, BBR.

Well, goodness! :blush: THANK YOU!! :icontardglompplz: I've spent a lot of time recently looking at other artists work going "I could NEVER do that" :wow: So I guess we all do that about someone else's work.. right? :aww: I'm glad you like this though. :iconblushplz:

Trust me, even if you somehow became incapable of drawing the awesome way that you do (which I doubt will happen anytime soon) it's never always about how well someone can draw. It's about what their drawings say, or what they're for. Your work never ceases to amaze me, whether it be in humor, depressing moments, or whatever, and that's because you put the necessary emotion and greatness into it. I'm still trying to develop that. Yours is just getting better and better each time.

:hug: I totally know what you mean actually (and I'm overjoyed that you think my art has some meaning/heart to it. :love:) because I quite often look at artists who do traditional art/landscapes/portraits perfectly (over and over) and sometimes wonder if they don't get tired with the repetition... and whereas I'm never fully satisfied with the artistic merit of what I draw (even if they turn out cute/pretty).. I know that I'd prefer it to make someone smile, or think.. or tear up even, than just keep drawing for the sake of drawing. :iconponderplz:

Hmm, its so interesting to see what I do through your eyes, you know? Thanks for telling me! Makes me think a little more about why I keep it up at all. :love:

Wow! This is so pretty! I am sure she will love it. Very different from your Castoons style, but very unique looking. I love the smooth shading and the soft, dark colors.
