I Move Forward, You Stand Still by Merollet I Move Forward, You Stand Still by Merollet
I haven't drawn anything decent for myself in a very long time, so I drew this when I finished commissions. I've wanted to use these colours (light yellowish blue and pastel pink) for so long! <3

Being a n00b at drawing backgrounds, I had no idea what to do with all the white space, but then I remembered that I had a really nice tutorial saved on my laptop on how to draw walls. (It's from Pixiv, you can check it out too: [link] )
Mine turned out nowhere near as good as in the tut, but I also tried to keep it less realistic, to match the character.

It's Aori~! I've been trying to finalize her colour scheme lately. I'm not sure if the difference is showing xD But I'm sure she isn't happy with it (she hates pink, unlike me... which is unfortunate for her ˇ u ˇ).

This is really beautiful! :D
DD-t is kaptál rá? :D Megérdemelten. Újra csodálom ahogy alkotni tudsz, komolyan mondom, varázslatosak a műveid. :) A színvilág harmonikus és jól eltalált, a koncepció egyszerű, de mutatós. A póz se rossz, de ha szabad megjegyeznem, a jobb keze (nekünk bal) a másikhoz képest kicsit rövidebbnek tűnik. Lehet csak a perspektíva teszi, vagy én ítéltem meg rosszul. De még ha így is van, a kép értékéből semmit sem von le, attól még ugyanúgy imádom. ^v^ <3
Wow! First of all congratulations on your DD! You deserved it!
I really love your OC's design! >v< Actually I love all of your designs they all look so pretty and make me want to make awesome/cute Oc's like you! I love how the simplicity of the sky and flowers look so effective! But that's maybe because it just fits with your style! The wall is actually very well done! I really like it! And the girl looks very pretty! I love how you draw girls! >u< Her hair looks so flowy and soft and I love how they move along with the petals *A*
Keep up with the great work!
Ohh, thank you so much for such a dear comment! :heart: It really makes me happy to see you like it ;////; I'm sure you can make amazing OCs too c':
such pretty colors *-* ♥☆♥
