Reality is a lovely place..
..But I wouldn't want to live there
This is for the Starbucks Frappuccino Contest! Everything here makes me happy..
Fantasy, beautiful women, long hair, brightly colored cloth, siamese cats, cetaceans, glowing things, music, pastries, fresh fruit, cherry cheesecake, drinking water, green flowers, huge leather-bound books, ruffles and lace, terra cotta, indoor plants, outdoor plants, palm trees, crystal water, oceans, beaches, desert oases, animals in general, real wood furniture, the moon and stars, clever kittens, mashrabiya windows, wisdom, sunlight filtering into dark rooms..
So many things! The owl and the fireflies are also a special shout-out to all of the music I listened to while painting, so much happiness :3 I hope you all like it! It was so good to paint again.
EDIT: I touched up a few things that bugged me and such, the most major being the window. I wanted the lattice to be more visible, and to darken the room a bit. Hopefully it still looks good to everyone~
: I'd love to thank you all individually, but now I have the smallest glimpse of the fan appreciation that those truly great artists out there on dA get. Thank you so much for all of your good wishes and congratulations.
