Aim for the Heart by StarMasayume Aim for the Heart by StarMasayume
Far, far in the sky live the Cupids,
They are not the cherubs you know,
But an agency of mischevious angels
Who create chaos down below.
Though pure in heart, they just can't resist,
To meddle in a mortal's life.
They're stubborn and willful, and if you dissagree,
Know that's when their arrow will strike!


:heart: HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!:heart:

:floating: I actually made it in time. Started painting this yesterday and have been working on it almost non-stop for at least 7-8 hrs. I had a this small sketch in my sketchbook when I was trying to come up with ideas for our greeting card for class, and when I didn't choose it, I figured I would do a digital art out of it for valentines day... but I felt inspired to make it into a painting, thus enlarged it and worked more on the background/composition (it was really lacking before with just the figures XD).

:love: I love my two little Cupids. Aren't they precious?

Saw you on subeta; thought I'd come and look at your DA...
This is very cute~ The colors are wonderful, and I think the girl's hair is well done.

I also love traditional art... uwu~

Ah a mixture. Mostly been doing too much fanart or chibis recently, but also been without a computer all summer and now have a job and class is starting again. ^^ I'm also more lazy when it comes to real painting like this. I'm not good at experimented with hair styles =/ At work I mostly wear my hair in braids due to the heat, it being simple, and I hate just putting my hair back.

not having your computer working is awful x__x
and you're not getting much free time with job/classes, but I hope you're able to submit some of your fanarts/chibis once in a while n__nU
oh, I love playing with my hair! >w< (though I won't dye it >_<!)
and yeah, I also detest simply tying it, so even if I'm late for school, I get to style it in the school bathroom.. xD
awn, I'm sure you look cute in braids <D

Don't worry, I'll make time to work on art! Need to make up for my lack of for summer. Been getting some nice sketches in my sketchbook done that I look forward to CGing once I get the program I use to work on Vista. Blah. Updated a few of the sketches in my scraps. ^^

Braids and half pigtails is about the best I can manage on my own (though I did try a different technique of braids that looks more elegant and nice). ^^ It's funny since my best friend was more the tom boy but is good at doing stuff with hair so I like to let her do the harder stuff on occasion. I wish I could do other styles though on my own.

omg, you got vista??? O__o;;
oh, I've never tried updating old sketches !O:
awwwn, I used to have two long braids with pretty short hair xD;
french braids? o.o
hahaha, how ironic! but you never know when you're gonna see someone alike in a dress, right? XD
oh, but there are some nice styles that are very simple, it depends of your hair n__n~
