Sweet Briar Rose [a short comic] by cocoaferret Sweet Briar Rose [a short comic] by cocoaferret
A small comic about small things of beauty- how little things can give you confidence :>

An assignment for class, India ink and gouache u_u I'm not entirely happy with how it came out, I haven't done ink in a while ;; in general it's not up to my usual standards, but I think overall I did okay- it was still well received, too~


:star: edit: Ohhh my gosh thank you so very much for the Daily Deviation! Even though it's a simple story, I'm glad it can make people happy :heart:

So beautiful, and so true!  I'm so glad you chose to illustrate this for your class, and then post it here!!  This is something all too easy to forget, but such a happy thing to remember.

This is a beautiful piece with a wonderfully executed narrative.
A great sense of pacing too.
You can really see how the young lady is feeling through her expressions and the addition, or removal, of the thorns.
(and petals; a touch of genius there :D)
And though you might not have been happy with the ink work, I reckon you've done a fantastic job :)

I just want to add that seeing this piece made my day, so thank you very much for sharing :hug:
Congrats on the DD :heart:

Did you do the title yourself or is it a font?  I'd like to know what it is if it's a font because it's pretty good  :3
