Optimism by xHideFromTheSunx Optimism by xHideFromTheSunx
Inspiration came from good feelings, with a little help from Grace by Apocalyptica. (Listen here: [link])
This is watercolours and coloured pencils on A4. I am aware there are a tonne of mistakes, the medium is a pain in the arse for small areas of detail. Still love it though!:heart:


The tiny bird is dedicated to a beautiful young Goldfinch from my garden who died because I didn't replace my bird window stickers fast enough:sniff: I'm sorry sweet Pikkukulta, fly forever in peace:heart:



:iconflowerdanceplz:Like my page on:iconfbplz:acebook and I'll give you cyberhugs!: [link]: :iconflowerdanceplz:



I can't stop you from posting this somewhere else, but have some respect - don't alter this in any way or claim that it's yours. Or I will find you. And I will be ANGRY.:dummy:

I need a dragon for a book i am writing, and this is a very good representation of what I need! Now apart from the stealing my soul thing, I was wondering if i could have permission to use this as my book cover? :sprint: :sprint: :sprint: :sprint:

Ummm... As flattering as that is (believe me, I'm glad you like it that much!:la:) I'm not a hobbyist, I'm trying to make a living from my art. So as much as I'd love to let you borrow a pic, I can't^^; I hope you understand, sorry:(
