Happy 11th Birthday DA! :)

This is my entry for this super inventive contest. I loved it the first moment I read about it and I'm excited to have this piece be a part of so many wonderfully creative submissions.

The picture was a real challenge, especially because of the strange assortment of lines, but I have to say this was one of the funnest pictures I've done. :D

EDIT: I realized I had a fatal mistake of perspective on the butterfly that was sitting on her lips and immediately decided to change it. Sorry for the slip-up. >.<

PS. Thank you to everyone who has fav'd and/or commented on this. Your support is awesome. You are the best!

Hi. Please can I draw this
And upload it on here but credit you? Would that be ok?
Lichida Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2011
Sure you can. :)As long as you credit me, I'm fine with it. I'm excited to see how it turns out. Can you send me a link once you're done?

thanks :D i thought i should ask 1st considering it is yours to begin with! ;P ill put your name and say its yours in the description with the link for yours when its done. :) and sure ill send you a link when its done! im sort of turning it into a pop-art style drawing as the shading on the face will become seperate sections and will be multi-coloured. Although the main areas like the eyes, hair and lips will stay the same! I hope i can do it justice as yours is a high standard! :D
