learning to fly by hakubaikou learning to fly by hakubaikou
This was made using a 4x6 Wacom tablet my sister ~HelloCaity gave me for Christmas. She spoils me so. Thank you so much, Cait!

Will probably make a print of this, but uploading stuff at my parents' house takes a ridiculously long time. Not even going to try uploading the full sized file until I get back to my place.

I hope everyone's been having a lovely holiday season so far. Hope you all have a great New Year!

The usual, start to finish on Photoshop.

This reminds me of one of my stories sooooo much! It's like you drew my dreams! I know you're no longer with us, but you still inspire me! R.I.P.

Dragons and flying pirate/airships. Awesome.
I hope someday I can get my drawings to finish so beautifully. I'm still working on it.

once again, the dragons fly... on wings that catch the well chilled air... above the clouds and near the ships that sail the sky in search of stars...and sometimes rain...

Thought it was a giant dragon flying in the distance.
Then on opening the full view, I realised it was a puchiwawa darling cutie!

Her feelings?
Somewhere between a mother's heart stopping in fear of something happening to her baby mixed with pride in her child's independence, and a human's loss at being rooted to the ground, without wings..

Great work, gives me some strange feelings of freedom the way the clouds are, and what with the flying title and with everything being above ground. :)

I also like how you can use the pen as a mouse.
When I first used it I was like "Woah! Motion sensor! :O"
