I have been reformed
Taken a new shape - growing an extra
coat for winter.
To be interesting just so you learn
Over new caring openly
A moment of warmth - quickish
The smell of power is easy.

Um, this took 5 hours. Pencil and coloured pencil.

I very rarely comment moderators' choices, even the prettiest of them, but this really deserves the time I took to comment!
It's absolutely beautiful and I adore the whole atmosphere of your drawing!
I mean it.
It's more than great 2

Ever heard the saying 'don't write poetry unless you're a poet'? unbelievably bad.

This is really cool. I think it has a very nice illustrative quality and tells an interesting story. I like how you use your colour sparingly. It makes your work unique. Not that the style isn't already, because HELLO it really is.

That's a really neat idea. Very well done.

Not sure what to say here, except I'm glad I'm not a snail person nibbling on broccoli.
