This is honestly one of my favourite deviations that I've seen, and I've been surfing Deviantart for cool images for about three months now aha. Anyways, I love the feeling that the picture give you when you look at it, and it's really well thought out, in my opinion
You always make the beauty of a degree of visible lines c: is it some kind of special brush you use? I can't really put my finger on it, but it doesn't look like PS ordinary hard round one, there's a smooth feeling
For some reason I love this piece. The styleized look and sort of breathablility is posesses if phenomenal. Apparently I keep making spelling errors - try to ignore those... It's got beautiful dimension and simplicity. I need to practice my brush techniques.
