I've often been told by others to cherish my childhood, enjoy it and have fun while it lasts. I never understood why they told me those things, i had always believed that being older would be more enjoyable, i'd have a sense of independance, earn my own money and live life the way i wanted to. But as i grow older, bit by bit i begin to understand what they were trying to tell me. As a child I was lucky to live a pretty carefree and relaxed life, my troubles had only consisted of getting the toys I wanted. Now as the years are quickly passing by, the things i'm now concerned about ultimately affect the path my life will take. I'm still young but i feel as if i have more and more things to be concerned with now, and i know that this is just the beginning. Fortunately, i'm lucky to still have a few of those carefree moments in my life, where i can relax and laze around. But i've realized, i shouldn't take them for granted, and instead cherish those moments while i still can. Because sooner or later, i'll have little of those left.
I tried to tone down the colors to try and get the atmosphere i wanted, key word is TRY guys lol~! This piece killed me, there were alot of times were i just wanted to give up on it /OTL But i just told myself to finish it to the very end D< This will be my last full bg piece for a while, school's started again and im back to studying ; u;/ But for now i shall spend my last day watching a kdrama, haha so toodles!

thank you for a meaningful picture <3 it's absolutely stunning. ;w; <3
ahh you are an incredibly inspirational artist and person, not only do you draw beautiful artwork with so much detail and life, but you have very sweet and deep meanings behind so many of them. i hope you continue to draw and brighten up a lot of lives with your work, and that you genuinely enjoy it as well ;u;♥
Hey i stumbled across your work on here i'm liking your style! Your art is very busy. There's lots to look at in it which is great cause you can stare at your art and look at all the lil bits an pieces in it or re look at it later to find a lil surprise which you never noticed before. Your pictures have a lot of life to them i could just picture it in reality without too much effort. I love the foreground and distance you have in there with the persepective Very cleverly done. Plus i like the fact that it's a picture set in a mid motion things are moving like you've taken a photograph of something in mid motion. I have to say i'm very impressed and looking forward to what you produce in the future. If you've got a moment check out my friend destinyblue she has a similar style.
This piece happens to be my favourite it
I'm no where near the skills that you have but i can give you constructive criticism on your pictures if you would like? If you ever do just lemme know and i'll give you some. Don't worry i'm very fair and i'll say what i like about the picture as well.
That's ok just saying what i thought and saw. ah that's cool thought you might of but in case you hadn't.
That's ok i comment of Destinys stuff and she really appreciates it and i thought i might offer my services I'm no way a professional art critique but i will tell you what i think honestly and not harshly also give ideas on what you might be able to do.
Well that's good to know if i do say something you don't agree with let me know but please don't get too offended as it's not my intent.
I love the Picture but it was what you wrote which struck something in me. I am going through the same stage in Life and sometimes I feel lonely and more than a little scared. So I search for Beautiful and Inspiring artworks on DeviantART, to remind myself that there is more to life than the problem and stage I am stuck in. And your picture... Well it just settled somewhere deep in my Heart and I am going to look at it whenever I feel small or Down. Thank You for making it!
The same thing happened to me when I was younger, I was also told to make the most of my high school years and my 'childhood' because things change. As a young adult I'm still trying to hold onto my childhood in different ways to make sure I don't lose that carefree nature that a lot of adults tend to forget. I want to live a life where everything is adapted to the lifestyle I want to live, and not having to adapt myself due to inevitable circumstances. The art piece is lovely and I'm glad you didn't give up on it. I really like the overal surreal effect you've manage to create with the colours. Nice work.
Razel, this is so touching. I really wish I still had that place where I could sit calmly and be content with myself and my life. You really captured the essence of peace and happiness in this piece. Truly this is great work
....wow razel.. WOW?!!!! THIS IS SPECTACULAR I JUST--- wow that looks like heaven// ...srsly ..FOREVERSAVEEeeee
the girl's looking so peaceful too as a child and ah yes childhood was so nice wasnt it!! ;w; my problems as a child are pretty much just "what excuse shld i make to skip school today shld i fake a faint" kinda thing and your description describes my thoughts really well! time goes so fast it scares me sometimes;; i've heard ppl saying that if you use your time wisely then you wont feel it goes /that/ fast .....BUT IT /IS/ FAST GDI-- good for you for realizing that in such a young age too!! youre such an adorbs person really! ;v; i hope this thing doesnt put you down or anything! its true life gets busier but hopefully we can find more fun in those busy times! <333 life is so precious ahh *v*
goodluck in your studies bby! wow i tried to make my comment short but-- yeah
waaa thank you so much sera! what what even if i use my time wisely time still goes fast ahaha /OTL i am not adorable lmao m(__)m it is it is, and its sad that people dont view their lives as something special D:
nonda the little story thingy about the pic fits me almost purrfectly >< I never understood why it was so great to be a child & wanted to badly to be a teenager but now I understand what adults were trying to tell me but it's cool I've been told I'm a child at heart XD
