This artwork is so great it haunted my dreams! Are those characters of a book? Is it possible to read this book somewhere?

No, these are personal roleplay characters belonging to the client who commissioned me to paint them for her.  I'm afraid I know very little about the characters themselves beyond her description.  I'm happy that you like the artwork, though!  :)

I love that you still keep some of the pencil lines and details. My mistake is that I always tried to hide them since my strokes have more shadow and contrast.

This piece was so fantastic that I did a woodburning of it here: [link]
The piece is going into my permanent collection and will never be colored or sold. I've been doing pyrography for about one year now, and try to push myself to learn new things with each effort. I learned so much with this one: fur, fabric, hair. It was so much fun and I hope you like it!

I love the way you have used lots of shadows on the clothes, but only used few ones and soft ones on their skin. It makes the picture glow and look warm and very intimate.

How can I love this picture!! It's just so beautiful. It makes me feel so happy and then I have to draw too... So beautiful!! I revere you so much. I'm just little kid. Very young little person, who needs a paragon. I think I can't draw very well, but your pictures make me feel like just keep drawing. You are my paragon in drawing.:) Thank you... :)
