Hi! I absolutely love your work and I find it extremely inspiring! Emote: Entranced And this piece is no exception! But I have a question that I hope you wouldn't mind answering for me. How exactly did you manage to create such a fantastic glowing effect? If you don't mind divulging your artist secrets I would be eternally in your debt. Please

Few artists on DA have such mastery of light in their art. Sure, I love Mushishi, so I'm biased, but I LOVE this picture. :D

I seen this before in thumbnail but never clicked on it to read the description. The last few weeks I have been putting Mushi-shi on tv to relax to while writing or drawing. So when I saw the thumbnail again, I thought, "Hey, that looks familiar! They look like Mushi!"

I love this anime, it's so nice and peaceful to have on in the background, or to watch after a tiring day at work =) . I really like how you did this art piece <3
