and napped for an afternoon.

and walked together until midnight."

First, let me say that I loved this piece. It's ACTUALLY THE CUTEST OH MY GOD EEEE. Ok, that over with, actual critique time. What a great concept! It's a clever twist on the classic "four seasons" theme. The strength of this piece is the repetition of the same elements with variations. I like how each of the main characters has a color that they carry from panel to panel, but the colors could be more obvious in the fall panel. The birds' nest from spring & summer doesn't reappear in fall or winter; it would have been a nice touch if there was a new one being built in the winter. Really, the more there is to discover in a piece like this, the better. On first glance, the dark blue of the winter panel clashes with the warm bright colors of the other panels; this may have been intentional, but i think it would look better a little lighter and purpler. Over all, great work!

Over all this is amazing. The feelings the progression conveys is wonderfully strong, and I'm particularly fond of the way you show that love can be for anyone, like the two boys. The themes you chose to represent match up neatly, which can be hard to do. When I look at the thoughts behind this heart warming peice, I see spring is a time for change, summer is when everything is alive and free, fall's cooling air inspires everyone to find that one person to bundle up with, and winter is when time itself seems to freeze, suspended in the moments you share with the ones you're close to. You also didn't fail to incorperate the parts of the day, morning, afternoon, evening, and night and make them fit in perfectly, too. In every frame there is a sense of joy and comfort, freedom and warmth in one way or another. Almost everything is perfectly balanced and complete, and the idea behind it is just as moving as every skillfully placed element. This is my new favorite! Truely touching work.

I was stunned when I first saw this piece by how awesome and how great it looks. I actually didn't find this by looking on deviantART, but in fact my boyfriend sent it in a text and how the characters crazily look like us. I am tall and light skinned and he is short and darker than me. There was another beautiful part about this picture that was crazy to us. That part was that the fact that he wants a boy and I want to have a little girl and there they are. me with the little girl and him with his boy. all in all I am here to say that this picture is amazing and I cant wait to see what kind of art you will post next. This pic is my wallpaper for my laptop now

Awww, thank you! It makes me happy that you and your boyfriend can connect to the series so well. A lot of people have mentioned to me how much they see themselves and their boyfriends reflected in the characters I drew, so it really means a lot to me that we all share a similar dream :)
