You epitomize the old saying that artists are their own worst critics, because this is gorgeous. ;) Her wings really glow, as does her sweet face.

Someday, I will have money. Then, I will jump upon one of your rare sales so fast that it'll probably be frightening! :giggle:

Thank you, Sarah.

Hehe, well, I had been hoping to do many more of these little pieces for sale, so I hope there'll be something you like among them.

I find it quite beautiful, Niroot :D Even if you're not happy (and why is that?) I am ^_^
Love the softness of her figure and the delicacy of the wings :)

Thank you, Javier. I don't know, I think I like it well enough, just that I probably expected to do better. But at least it meant I finished it relatively quickly and didn't feel obliged to ask too much for it. :blushes:

She's lovely! :aww: I love how you've captured such an innocent expression on her face, especially given the tiny scale...

Plus, I'm a huge fan of blue and brown color schemes. :love:

(Additionally, wishing I wasn't so broke at the moment. AUGH!)

I'm very fond of brown and blue too... What a surprise. :giggle:

(I still owe you an ACEO gift. You may remember I mentioned starting one long ago. I grew unhappy with it and it remained unfinished. :roll: I promise to do a better one for you -- I just need to get round to it. :ohmygod: I can show you the bad unfinished one if you like. Eep.

Additionally, I still need to send you your inkstick, blast it! I'm such a twit... :no:)

Ah yes, I remember! :lol: You should also know by now that I'm patient and you shouldn't feel inclined to rush yourself with anything. :hug:

And I'm quite certain I wouldn't find your unfinished piece "bad" in the least... I'd be overjoyed to see it! :aww:

Pssh, you're not a twit. :XD:

With any luck, you might get both the ACEO and inkstick as a poor sort of Christmas present. :giggle:

Here is the offending piece: [link]
In fact, I think what I'll do is to finish this one (can you believe the tail was all that was left all this time, but because I had grown to dislike it, I never even finished that little bit off :roll:) as well as draw another, better one, and you shall have both.

I can't possibly see how you might have felt this piece to be "wrong," I think it's absolutely wonderful! :love: This definitely made my day, thank you so much!!! (I can't get over how he's preening his wing, eheeeee!)

Argh, I'm incoherent with glee! :giggle: :dance:

Aww... :blushes: You are too kind. But if you like it, then I'm very glad indeed. That's the most important thing. :D :hug: However, I would advise not building yourself too much excitement. The anticlimax upon receipt might prove too dreadful. :giggle:

I am amazed at how much crisp detail and color you were able to do on ACEO-sized paper. o.0 I can't stop looking at her wings, or the little details in her hair.
