Drew out this quick belated bday gift for the one and only @maya525! Like finally seriously this should've been done daysss ago if it weren't for these hands of mine fgjdkgf but it's fine I think I can now go back to regular ~~not very organized~~ drawing schedule! I actually have a rule for myself ~~that I think I've actually broken a few times RIP~~ is that I don't draw gifts(specifically bday gifts) for peeps unless I've known them for at least a year because a lot of my friendships kinda die out after the first few months~~...even years but who could see that far in the future of a relationship so yeah, settling for a year~~(or they die out because of the thing that helped started the friendship is over and we don't have anything else going for the friendship to keep it alive if you know what I mean) *tear* But hey, even though we've only known each other for a few months Maya and I have been chatting a good amount of times(even though it'd sometimes take up to hours for me to reply *sweats* I thank all my friends and anyone else who's chatted with me for tolerating that) and sharing funny stuff with each other so I really hope we can keep this friendship going ~~Let's just go right with it to the art before I go full on a word vomit on how I'm paranoid of the friendships I make dying out and stuff~~ So yeah, I drew Maya's OC Rose~ She's a lovely flower(pun intended) and I like how the end of her curls look like roses! And I like her hat(I thought she was a witch at first because of it though sdhjkfdgf like... some kind of plant witch but mainly with roses) Anyway, full art can be found on [instagram](https://www.instagram.com/p/Bo8-MygjS_o/?taken-by=athilahthepun) and progress shots can be found here! Just scroll on down to see 'em <center>![Progress shots.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmbKxYrR6VAM2WkZEASr23vYfDrUwAbrRNwMMw6d6d7VDo/Progress%20shots.png) ![Thorny Rose sketch.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmVLCnPeo2EvJX5QfU5GZEoEUZX13f3EuLCRfkTEfVCeuG/Thorny%20Rose%20sketch.png) Okay, so this sketch originally showed Rose holding a...well, rose but then I changed it to her kinda uhhh ...I don't know what's the word to perfectly describe what she's doing.. Hold?...no, I don't think that's the word I'm looking for... prep??? ...She's doing a thing with her hair okay you see it in the lineart progress shot and looking smug about it dsfjkfsg(don't you hate it when you know a certain action but don't know the proper term to describe it) I felt like this pose fit her personality a bit more than just holding a random rose ![Thorny Rose lineart.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmYg1o1PfsrQi9GZmhJ2hZi1a9FqtsZ6nQ2wvCqm9PM2QS/Thorny%20Rose%20lineart.png) Looking at this art again it just screams... "B*tch, I'm fabulous"///NOOOO ![Thorny Rose base colours.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmSb5rryk6ucwhbhjANY7hbVnzNVZEmz1vJzbvL57x123M/Thorny%20Rose%20base%20colours.png) ![Thorny Rose f.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmevjNKGChn1QbtGHKBcQzY2xfZPLYDEy3NzuULYMFiTry/Thorny%20Rose%20f.png) Thought blue bg looked better compared to the green one that you saw in the base colour progress shot and so glad I went with it. Also my sai had a rose texture thing and I'd be crazy to not use it for this character whose frickkin name is Rose </center> And that's it! I've met pretty nice peeps over here at Steemit who are supportive and am very grateful whenever they interact with my post~ I consider a couple of them as friends and hope they also feel the same with me. Okay, right it's midnight now I should go sleep sdkkjf goodnight and thanks for checking out my post!
