test flight by rtil test flight by rtil
something i've been chipping away at for a while. i feel like i learned a lot this piece and improved some things in my style. 

this piece will be on sale at Sakura-con in a few weeks! :iconchannel-square: and I finally got a table for this year, but we will be in Small Press instead of Artist Alley, so I need more original material to sell.

i know that most people who see this will not be at such a humble convention in this small corner of the world, so I am putting up this 11x17 poster for pre-order for only $10 if you would like one. I print on high quality gloss poster paper and ship worldwide. I will ship them after the convention, which ends April 20th.

Ahh. The serious hi-tech city and the totally juvenile of the girl throwing paper planes... lovely contrast :)

I'm in love with your imagination (and a tad bit jealous of it as well).

I really enjoy the world of your imagination. I have yet to draw any landscapes, but what I have in mind, I am all the more inspired by your works here. ^^

"Test Flight" is a very interesting visual work here. There's a sense of being on top of the world, where the skies are the limits and anything is possible. On top of a tower as mission control, the girl watches as every paper plane of her dreams takes flight. Not much more is there to be said in interpretation, but to simply experience the world as anyone could possibly imagine. Awesome work. :)

Your very welcome. :)

Hopefully, you'll get to one day.  I'm sort of in a similar boat, only it's taking years for me to get any art stuff going. I had allot of challenges and hurtles that I had to overcome, but I'm making it through one step at a time. I'm learning that being an artist is just as much of a journey as the adventures we portray in art works. 

I just have to test flight every conceivable ideas and see what works. The best thing is to enjoy the works of my hands just as the mission control girl is enjoying her handy work.  :)
