Yay for original titles!

Uh... I don't usually do this sort of style; it's a lot more shoujo than what I normally draw. I just sketched it at uni then decided quite randomly that I wanted to try colouring it.

^_^; Well, I guess it's good practise to experiment with other styles and stuff, so I'm glad I at least attempted it. I didn't really spend as much time on the background as I should, but it's my sister's birthday party in a few hours and I need to go get stuff ready, and I wanted to get this done today.

I really need to get better at drawing ships... A friend asked me to do a comission a while back involving one, and I still haven't started because the idea of drawing the background's still kinda daunting. I feel a bit more confident about it now, though. (I'll get it done soon Doug, honest! *runs off to get ready*)

This is absolutely awesome. It's simple, apposite and does not try to hide something. On top of that it's extremelz adorable and I would say more things like that, but in the end I'd just repeat another person. ;)

Ooh, I absolutely adore this. her hair and hand and face most of all. The only thing that bugs me is at the right underarm of her shirt, I see a little blue peeking through.
Anyways, I think the simple background is very suiting. You don't want to distract the eye too much. (Did I mention I love the sky and the birds in the sky? The clouds are amazing.)

This is lovely, her hair is just beautiful. You really have a handle on this medium.
