Had a really great time doing this artwork. It challenged my skills of making characters and patterns out of the organic/random shapes (islands). Plus there was a list of elements to be included in the artwork which consumed a lot of time during the planning stages.

Artwork Type: Commissioned
Client Country: Australia
Medium: Ink on Water Color Paper
Size: A3
Working Time: 12hrs

My art teacher has a picture in her classroom that says "NEVER STOP DRAWING" surrounded my several doodles which are eerily similar to yours. Any chance you drew it?

When I saw your doodle art my mouth dropped. I kept looking at all the artwork you made and I was in absolute shock that one person, could do all this. I really admire your work, and I think it's fantastic. This is absolutely astounding, and I really love how you place so much time, and so much effort into these drawings. I don't have anything to say because it's so awesome! I love how you just draw random things, and place them together into a piece of artwork. It's amazing what the human imagination can lead up to. Well done, well done.:squee:

Hey Lei, I have been interested in your works (Along with Kerby Rosane) for a while now and just wanted to say "Hi"

Also I realised I didn't watch you on here (Even though I thought I did) so I added you now Derp 

ALSO also I am sorry about the notifications you are going to get from me favouriting all your work but hey, at least you know I like it, I am favouriting it all aswell because I would like people to find you through my page if anyone visits my page, hightens your chances of more recognition which I believe you deserve
