A Girl's Dreams by mou-s A Girl's Dreams by mou-s
When I was a kid, I liked to wrap myself in bedsheets pretending that I was a princess of some sorts, then realizing the harsh reality when I saw myself in a mirror.

"Then realizing the harsh reality when I saw myself in the mirror."

What kind of "harsh reality" existed in your childhood? Poverty? Racism and the bullying this inspires, which, at its worst, can make a person hate what he or she sees in the mirror?

Whatever it was, you have my sympathies. Children do not deserve to be subjected to such conditions.

~it's not easy to draw something were you can see the same thing in 2 different angles and make it look the same thing - the exactly same pose , the exactly same expression and the exactly same concept

what i love the most is the fact u made so well the window shadows on the wall and when we look to the mirror it makes you think - wonderful work !

really amazing ♥ and in the end .. she looks like a real princess after her sleep x3 !!!

lol yeah, it was a pleasure to go to Minicomi and see the different artists' works. If I could do digital art half as good as some of the prints, it would nearly complete my life :XD:
thanks :D

*-* OMG YESH~! Please do, the world will thank you! XD At least all of us artists on this page will~! *looks forward to that tutorial* :D :heart:

Your way of coloring in particular is so gorgeous!! Tips for pic composition/color choices/conveying the right lighting through colors/proper choice and use of textures etc. would be very welcome when you find the time to make the tutorial!! :D
Sorry for the huge list... XD; But I look at your pics and it's so awesome it's hard to know where to even start analyzing it. XD *lol*
Those are some of the main things that pop to mind that I'd love to see some description of how you do it and your tips for people. :D
