I ran out of potatoes ._.

Better make new ones!

Figured this one could be labeled as Fantasy, so finally the vexel art is in the vexel category. I am way too concerned about this = =. Textures used are from cgtextures.com.

Hi I was wondering if I could please post this artwork on my tumblr blog chat-over-coffee.tumblr.com/ as a creative writing prompt? I would credit you and post a link to your deviantart.

It's wonderful how it feels like there's so much behind that picture...
I'm also wondering... I'm not sure if she is just bored. She might just be thinking about something - or someone - else... being a little bit sad.

This is so beautiful! There are so many exquisite details, but my favorite has to be how her hair oh-so-subtly turns into feathers. Makes me think of a swan maiden!
