Nice. Your illustrations are beautiful. You really know how to use colored pencils and pastels well. This piece is nice but I was really impressed with the "sour" piece.

Always a fan of your fantastic colour work. Great layers, the foreground characters offer a great contrast to the middle and background, very effective :)

I'm not sure what inspired me but I think there's definitely a 70's feel to it..

So mysterious and sweet at the same time. You are not only expert at color pencil, but you really know what subjects are best brought out with that media. Yooooouuu! You are so good.

This illustration is somehow beautiful in an almost spooky way. I somehow feel sad for the girl
