The great experience of reading by Awkward-Hermit The great experience of reading by Awkward-Hermit
I made this sketch in May of 2015 and just now finished it(Nov. 2015) after ignoring it for so long.

A dear friend of mine sort of inspired this. I had her in mind, sort of, when I started sketching. My friend's a a bookworm with curly red(sometimes pinkish) hair, but otherwise the physical characteristics are a bit different. The bookshelf is actually inspired by my own.

Oh my goodness, this is really a very detailed, beautiful and cozy drawing, Britney Spears Oh Yeah I love the atmosphere of her room, bed very near of the bookshelf of old dark wood, it must smell like pine trees or pluvial forests, I adored it <3 Britney Spears Cute Her hair is so  stylish and u did a very good job with her body proportions, uhh I loved her bracelet! *-* The nuances of the smoke coming out from the fantasy stories are so soft and gently done! I can't even talk about the shades of purple and blue u achieved in her nightdress and pillow! Oh I simply loved those purples and blues shades, so nicely mixed, it's so beautiful, ah, and yeaaah definitely couldn't miss the little parrot plush! So cute! It's so like u to have one like that in ur room! Haha, well, but ultimately, I love the deep black frame u gave the drawing, with beautiful waves and the amaaaaaaazing oriental dragon that match with it so well, it definitely express the amazing experiences of imagination and readings from books and original fics, It's so nicely done, darling, congratulations!

I did base a lot of the books and the shelf on things I have in my own room, haha, and as for the parrot it is inspired by a Dodo bird stuffed animal one of my friends has. 
I'm glad you like the colors so much! I reused a lot of them in certain areas, so I'm happy you think it turned out well! And the proportions on the girl are better than how I used to draw, but they are still not as flawless as your drawings!!! :love: 
The Black frame was actually two different shades of black, and kind of messy looking, so I cheated a bit and edited it on the computer. :iconnervous-laughplz: 
Thanks again for the comment, my friend!!! Chili Anime Emoji (Snuggy hug) [V2]

Hahaha, don't be fooled honey, my proportions look good only cuz I do use lots of references, I guess if I didn't use any, my drawings would look like shhh*, by the way, giving a digital complement is marrvelous, you definitely should, I do too, It's kinda troublesome to fix something in the paper and risking screw up everythiiing, it's so risky, it's better to fix it in the pc, so u may not loose ur original one in case things come way oooout of hand. Very smart, dear, keep it up. ^^

Haha, well your art is beautiful either way! And besides, I use plenty of references also!  
But you're right, using the pc to fix up things helps a lot and is less risky! 
So thanks again, dearie! :D
