You're making a book about your paintings? Super excited!! :D I love her hair style in this, it's so woodsy.

Yup it's my second book. This one will be all about drawing costumes (and there's a whole bunch of painting backgrounds because I get carried away with details)

I love the trees, the texture of the trunks and the colors of the leaves. Her skirt is gorgeous as well.

Will you be at anime detour?

Thanks :) I tried a whole bunch of methods for painting the tree texture because I wanted to demonstrate it in the book.

Yup, I'll be at detour

Now, I don't remember if you take commissions when you are at Detour.

It would probably be easier if you let me know what you want before and I could make sure I bring the right supplies.

Very nice! She reminds me of Cecile Corbel especially when she sang "Black Bird". "I'm a young maiden, my story is so sad" You should listen to it sometime. It's beautiful!

None? :( On the other hand you can grow all kinds of trees we can't have up north like Japanese Maple and Almonds.

If there are any, they would be up in the mountains where it is cooler. We do have a lot of pecans and peaches around here, though.
