Reflection by Mirrei Reflection by Mirrei
I might change the title if I think of something better :/
This took so long, about 8 hours altogether.
There are virtually no lines with a few exceptions, almost everything is made up of minuscule hand drawn dots..
But I'm pretty proud! The skirt was the biggest mistake. I started off by making it the ocean but I was so tired, it was about 3 at night, and I decided to put a couple butterflies on it. I then decided I hated it and quickly inked the entire thing black. After realizing I just ruined the entire picture I freaked out and decided I would just...make more galaxy. In all, I think it came out alright despite being a mistake but I still wish I had just gone with drawing the skirt as the ocean instead of being impatient and fricking it all up.
I ended up being able to watch an entire anime series through the progress of working on this! Shin Sekai Yori really inspired me while working on this piece. It's an awesome anime!
I hope you enjoy <3

Done with a plethora of pens and ink and dipping pens. 

EDIT: for some reason lines are showing up on here but the scan doesn't have them.

Wow! Incredible work of pointilism! Amazing! It looks like it took you much more than 8 hours! Perhaps 30 or 40! Very good. This is so much harder than people think.

I know ;-; its so difficult, but I finish things fast when I watch anime while doing it, and I finished an excellent series while when I finished this piece!
I can't believe you commented on my work. I'm so glad you like my work, I consider you one of the most talented artists I know.  I'm almost tearing up haha

I really look up to you, so I am insanely honoured that you'd take the time to comment on my work. I remember the first time I saw your picture on deviantArt I was blown away and considered you one of "those" artists, the insanely talented ones that deserve the front page best of the month. 
You play LoL? Wow, I am so wanting to start that game but I'm a bit intimidated, and I don't want it to kill my server. Actually, I'm wanting to cosplay Ahri, I love her skins as well as some of the other ladies!
I really do want to play though.
