Lilac Princess by AkiAmeko Lilac Princess by AkiAmeko
I love May. :) It's one of my favorite months of the year. (The other is October) Why? Because the lilacs are in bloom. Ever since I can remember, my family has always lived in a house with a lilac tree in the back yard. They're my favorite flowers ever, and they smell so sweet. :rose: Thus, lilacs have a very nastalgic feeling for me, and they always make me think of my family, especially my dad. (The green thumb in the family.)

This is to be my new journal header. I wanted it to be Aki, but with a lot of things that represented more me myself than my OC. I went with lilacs, (for reasons given above) a cat, (because they're my favorite animals and I LUFF them :heart: ) a pen (for da art-ness), glasses (cause I wear them), and my favorite symbolism of wings, heart (choker) and tiara. To me, the wings represent freedom, the heart represents love, and the crown represents loyalty and dedication. I have a lot of jewelery with hearts, wings, and crowns on them. :giggle:

I had lots of fun painting this. The colors are so pertyyyy. :heart: They feel very soft and serene to me. I'm rather content with how this turned out. :heart: (Note: The background isn't much intentionally because this is going to be my journal header. Some of the background will even be eliminated for this purpose.)

Aki (c) Me!

I bought a print of this last year at AnimeIowa, it is still one of my favorite pieces of art.

Oooh!!! You you you!! I was hoping I'd run into you online!!!! <33333

Thank you very much for that too! :heart: I was honestly very surprised to place in that contest, especially since this was a non-fanart entered into a fanart contest. And it was a big boost of confidence to have someone purchase it, and even have me sign it! :heart: I feel loved. :iconblushingplz:

Oh my! This is beautiful! :aww: And me, too! One of my favorite places is in the lilac garden next to our house and I love just sitting there and smelling them. ^_^

The colors are SO GORGEOUS! And her hair! #_# It compliments everything so nicely and it looks so beautiful and flowing. It looks like I could just touch the softness.
