Afternoon relaxation by Ninjacatmuffin Afternoon relaxation by Ninjacatmuffin
Read some of Mia's journal entries here: [link] here: [link] and here: [link] (Just don't have her catch you reading them!)

I wanted to try drawing my Original Characters more (along with poses, orz), so I decided to practice it yesterday after my homework. The result was this thing you're staring at right now.

I'm fairly satisfied with it (I feel that the yellow glow in the picture (to represent sunlight coming through the window) adds to it), but if you have any critiques on the pose, coloring, etc., then please go for it. I could always use tips!

As for the idea behind this picture, I just wanted an excuse to draw Mia's journal. She sometimes has conversations with it; it's pretty cute if I say so myself. .v.

ps. Those pillows are not just random designs! Those happen to be pictures of white and yellow irises on them.

Thank you! Mia's hair is a pain to draw, so I'm glad it came out OK. ;v;

Thank you; I'm satisfied with it too!

Mia is quite satisfied. I mean...she gets to rest. Resting is always nice plus she has a nice bed. :U.

I want her pillow too. I believe they're custom made (since it's hard to find Iris pillows in the market). >v>

I'm glad you get that feeling from looking at this picture; that's what I was aiming for actually (I missed drawing relaxing things. ;v; ).

Mia is quite pretty. <3 I'm glad you like her curly hair (it took the most time to ink and color. Darn you hair!) and facial expression I'm proud of it.

I bet her bed is comfy too. I wish I could rest on it. ;v; Anyway, thank you!

Thank you! <3 I was aiming for a more...relaxed feel here, since Mia herself is relaxed. Who can't relax on a bed?

I'm glad you like the colors. I was testing my markers to see if I could make things more pastel-ish with them. They usually give me EXTRA BOLD colors, so a change of pace was needed.

I'm not sure she's going to give it to you, but you can try.

Thank you! I'm glad you think she's pretty I think so too. >v> Wasn't the original intent, but she just came out that way.

I told you it was cute how she converses with her journal! ;v; I swear, she is quite something. Actually, I made the journals originally to get to know her more, so adding it on here was an afterthought, but oh well.
