Beautiful piece of a well-crafted character again :D The style is very authentic & her little hobby is quite unique (with regards to her choice of plants) :thumbsup::) Great work.

P.S. U ever do traditional art? Think rice paper (Jap paper) suits your style if u would try (I dunno y I mention this really) :/

Hi. Just so you know: there's an app called Sketch club on IOS. There are two drawings that ripped your artwork, i guess without your permission. I should kindly ask them to get removed, for they are crap! You can find them at sketch club app website. Under  the Ikebana compo. You might find this silly to report perhaps, but it is your work! No one should get credit for your work, especially when those drawings are featured. Lets keep it original ;)

Simple and beautiful.  If you don't mind my asking, do you use Photoshop, and if so, what sort of brush do you use?  I love the soft storybook-ish look.

I love the elegance of this piece. The aquatic flower arranging is a great, original idea-- you've done a good job in the picture making it unusual, but because of the water lillies not outlandish :)

I tried to do it on my computer, but it lagged me too much so I had to stop it. I hope it won't do the same to yours.
