Childish by DustyLeaves Childish by DustyLeaves
This was drawn more or less to remind myself why I draw :)
It was very rather quickly drawn, but it felt nice to take some time away from commissions and school and just relax with this <3

It's me in the picture ;) (with my new haircut, WOHO!!:la:)



EDIT: YES I know that the red handprint is mirrored, but I noticed it when it was too late... :iconnotimpressedplz:

I love this! It is filled with wonder and joy. Personally I would have called it Child-like rather than Childish. BTW, I love your Guardians of Childhood (Rise of the Guardians) group of artwork. Thank you for all of your beautiful art. Love

That is completely fine, I'm just glad that you credited me, so everything is okay c:

And seriously, smack that son of a b**** teacher. She can't tell you what art is, and what art is not, cause' then art wouldn't exist at all. So screw her, and keep on drawing, cause' you got a bloody talent that she can't see! ____

All right so a while ago, I favorited this piece of yours, and I swear in the description there was a link to a song that a young-ish girl sang and in the music video she was in this empty white child's-playhouse thing and she was throwing different colored paint everywhere while singing. Maybe I'm going crazy and you never posted it, but for the life of me I can't think of her name or the title of the song. All that to say...halp? ;u;

elephants and lions are indeed the best inspiration to draw.

deep philosophy aside, very well done. you have a playful aesthetic that brings the piece together nicely. I would have liked to have seen a bit more connection between the handprints and the drawing at the top - though it may have been your preference to keep them as subtle as they are.

I can see what you mean, I also tried to make them somehow connected but had a hard time doing it, but I'll have to look it up next time I try something like this :)
and thank you very much <3
