Mysterieux by KristenPlescow Mysterieux by KristenPlescow
I had no idea what to title it. Enjoy my fail French.
I would have had an accent on the e, but apparently dA is racist against letters that are different. e_e
:iconlaplz:



Ending my hiatus by posting commission I finished for Setheus awhile back. <3 He was super-patient and I think this turned out really nice because of it.

Birds of paradise are extremely difficult flowers to draw... but attempting to draw hydrangea is making me miss these, for sure. Lol~ :ohnoes: Darn flowers and their.... petals.




I have some projects I'm working on, including one large commission... so that's something to look forward to I think. :'D

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-08-14
Mysterieux by *CentraDragon

The suggester says: "I personally love the design of the bird creature. The shades of green are so mezmerizing, they make you be a part of the wild depicted in the composition. The attention *CentraDragon has for detail is astonishing, I love this piece so much. I find it perfect." ( Suggested by MaddalinaMocanu and Featured by Nyiana-sama )

Birds of Paradise are among my favorite types of flowers... I would have added hydrangea or dragonsnaps, but I didn't feel they were quite as tropical as the Paradise ones. XD

Out of curiosity, where do you live? The only place I've seen Birds of Paradise growing was in California... and that was only in private yards with lots of watering. :B

Since they're perennials (as well as tropical) they probably wouldn't do well with places with a frost, which is why hydrangea works so well in Virginia (where I live now). They just die back each year and regrow in the spring. :la:
