Love Flies by Valendra Love Flies by Valendra
[EDIT: updated artwork with better adjustment on contrast levels.]

Happy Valentine's!!! ^^
Hope you had/having a nice valentine's day. I was inspired by a song for this one, lol, I was supposed to study finals at that time :XD: That's why I colored it only now. I kind of like how it turned out though. I edited a bit with photoshop with the blurry-shiney look. It's all watercolors aside from that though ^^

Lineart is actually a couple of months old, I didn't want it to be much visible so I used 0.3mm lead for it. I don't like this paper, it absorbs water and paint so fast that you can't even use water to take unwanted paint. Pick your paper for watercolor carefully kids, a paper which bends and ripples when soaked with water isn't suitable for watercolors, but maybe for mediums you use less water and more paint =__=

Random girl, with random hearts flying away from her grasp. We can't keep all hearts and loves big and small in our hold. Some slip away and some we let go. Enjoy ^^

Actually I never heard of it before. I was listening to Izi's(a korean band) song Far Away while working on this piece. Thanks for telling me ^^
