Make a Wish by akirakirai Make a Wish by akirakirai
Long time no see, DeviantART! Many things have happened for the better and for the worse over the long time I haven't been here.
I am very happy and I hope you can tell by this painting! I used my hands as a reference. The hair was the most difficult part of the pic for once lololol

Thank you so much for sticking with me through all this time! :hug: I'm so sorry for not having been able to reply to many people and seeming like I disappeared - I haven't forgotten I have just been going through a lot of stuff! Thank you for understanding :heart:

I will be at FANIME CON in San Jose tomorrow at table 112, if you are going there I hope to see you!

art (c) me - programs = OpenCanvas + Photoshop CS6

I have a feeling that me and you went through a lot similar. I feel genuinely happy for you. I wish you all the best onwards, through all the thorny valleys towards the light.

Nice to see you back! I was a little sad when you did not arrive at Sakura-Con, but I understand things happen.

Also, I really like the use of the colours in this composition! They are very vibrant and they definitely pop out. Well done!

This is amazing!

I've always looked up to you. I didn't know who you were until my mother introduced me to you by your drawings.


For this drawing, I really like the colors. 
But personally, it's the hands. 
Maybe it's because I'm not all that good at it yet. 

And the eyes. I really like that color. 

Keep up the good work, ate! :happybounce:
