I'm a bit late as I was away from home this week and couldn't scan the piece, but here we are. The palette was rather autumnal with fiery colors and deep greens, so I went with this nice seasonal theme. The character was rather hard to paint as I'm not used to paint faces that small, but it's not bad.
“Even as the leaves are set ablaze
The wind only gets colder.
Fiery colors dance as they fall
While the air fills with the smell of pine.
The feeling of the gentle breeze
And the bright, but slowly fading sun
Mix in a fuzzy moment full of life
Before everything gets whited out.”
