There's nowhere else to comment this so it's sort of unrelated, but am I correct to assume you really really like the ocean and mushrooms? >_<

I'm noticing a very calm theme here :) maybe that's why I get relaxed whenever I look at your "scribbles" haha--
literally whenever I get stressy about schoolwork I'm just like "k I need to stalk koyamori then I'll be better" XD

Little does mankind know that as a mount a tardigrade is nearly invincible.
Imagine storming someone's castle on this adorable lil' tank. 8D

Yeah, it takes more time to paint when you use masking and it is a bit messy too... I was just thinking because the background looks so clean and the colours are layered nicely. :D
