Very well done. I love all the colors and the statue in the middle of what looks like a greenhouse. This looks like somewhere in Greece. Did you use colored pencils?

Favorite Quote:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant,
gorgeous, handsome, talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."
Marianne Williamson

There is something rough and casual yet symmetrical and proper. I love the "casual" or imperfect, cartoonish look. This is really good. The quote really explains the picture. Simple yet beautiful.

This looks like it just came out of an oriental storybook. You are an extremely good illustrator. I don't even know how you did  the 3D perspective.

Art is all about mistakes and knowing which ones to keep.

It looks like you used colored pencils for this...this is amazing, but I think art markers of some kind would bolden your work and illustrate your talent better. :)
