A thank you painting! On one of my trips a super nice author friend of mine let me stay with her and her family. They treated me like their son and even cooked for me!!! Their daughter liked my fluffy unicorn painting so this is her and unicorn!#apaintingeveryday

I was asked if I could talk about creating mood in a painting. I'm definitely not pro at this but I will do my best :) 1. Determine the mood, in this case love and passion. 2. Your drawing should reflect the mood. So I drew the characters with a lot of soft curves. Calming lines. 3. I backlight the characters so their silhouette stands out. Most contrast is focused on their faces. 4. I paint the scene in pastel colors. Using a lot of red/purple, a passionate color. I repeat the curves of the characters in my bg brush work. Let me know if you found this helpful!:) #apaintingeveryday

I like your style so much. And I like that fact that you are not like the most of other artists, they are very sexual and their drawings are full of nude violence and stuff like that.
But you are different. You have your own cool style in polite way. And you draw a lot of kids which rare of people do that. In the end BRAVO! Keep going please. And i'll watch you ;P
