About time I made original illustrations of my characters. Lantern plants (the real kind) are the funnest kind of plants and I decided to run with the idea!

Most of the time I'm already sold when the drawing has warm colors and a sense of coziness, but this is really good!

Definitely shoulda bought this when I had the opportunity at otakon. Any chance this lovely print will be available on your storenvy site~? The more I look at it, the more I need Cruz on my wall ;A;

I'm glad you decided to run with the blue background, looks really good. c:
I just love this whole piece in general, the outfit, the body shape but most of all the lantern plants!

oh man. I just love Cruz so much. He seems like such a big softy, a gentle giant. Perhaps the only kind of person that could put up with Enna's antics faithfully. Just what I've taken from it, anyhow. :>

It's got a story all his own, in that way. I really adore him. Wonderful illustration for him~ It compliments his calm nature

Think I'm starting to fall for your work and I really like this one. Especially liked getting to see the other-colour versions of it (may have been on Tumblr rather than DA, come to think of it...)
I love how restful he/the atmosphere is, and the twinkly-sort-of lights

One of my biggest regrets is not being able to go to anime boston and buy this as a print! I love the colors you ended up going with, and all the little paisley detailing.

I've been fallowing this on your Tumblr through it's unfinished stages, I like how it turned out, and I'm glad to see that you were able to balance the color. (Gah, so much red before! :P) I'm also diggin' the bioluminescent flowers. Very Avatar.

Love the lighting. His expression is also very well done- he looks so contented. I'm also having a bit of a private giggle at the "lantern plants."

I just wanted to let you know that I really really love this picture of Cruz, and I'm really glad you went with the reddish hue to the picture. I stalkfollow your blog.

I would buy a print, but I don't go to any of the cons you attend. *weeps*
