Oh my!I just love the headgear!I like how it manages to look not too heavy (as in with precious stones and glittering things :D ) despite being a little big.It looks very delicate and elaborate.Gorgeous concept and design. :nod:
The whole picture looks very nice,great choice of colours.

Absolutely beautiful :-)

This is coloured exquisitely. I really like how you did the background colour.

I like most of the sketch lines, but I think they make things a little grubby looking where her boobs start and maybe on the ear a bit.

I'm good, thank you! Have exams coming up very soon, kinda nervous about that. But I'll be studying English and Film at Reading Uni from October on, if all goes well! How are you, and the rest of the LoME gang? I miss y'all.

Reading? As in Reading in England? Thats great! Not too far from here either, lol!
Im finishing uni in June, so im panicing about having to find work and make a living.
Everyone is ok, though theres only the 3 of us now, everyone is a bit busy so its a little quiet.

Yeah, as in Reading, England!=) Good luck on finding a job! Have you thought about moving to the states, seeing as the movie business is bigger there? 'Cause you still wanna do stuff within animation, right?

The three of you being you, Mel and Lethe, or who?

Araniel Featured By Owner Apr 8, 2007
It hasnt even crossed my mind to go to the states yet, I like Britain too much, besides, one of the main reasons there is more work in the states is because they churn out a lot if shit for proffit rather than making good animation. Im all for animation in the UK, Im hoping it will get back on its feet and to where it was a few years ago.
Yup, thats us!

It really sounds like you have a goal there, and that's what's most important. Once you've got that part down, you'll manage the rest. Takes some hard work and perseverance, but you'll do it ;)
