Simeon by ParaisaDesign Simeon by ParaisaDesign
Another character in the book - as described by Daniel.

"Simeon has all the optimism and innocence of the transition between childhood and youth. His self confidence is unbounded, his enthusiasm unmuted, and his love for life unrequited. Here he journeys to Vashti with his beloved Teacher."

Wonderful! This character exudes the description exactly as you wrote above. The term "joie de vivre" comes to mind, and makes me ache for that time in my life when I set forth in the world and all was all at once new, exciting, terrifying and beautiful. I love it!

Thanks Ryan - glad his character brings that into your mind. I totally hear you about aching for that innocent joyful exploration of life that we felt as children (and even as adults sometimes). Maybe the shift will bring that back to all of us. :heart:

Yes, he looks like the kind of person I wouldn't mind going on a journey with. I can feel his positivity!

Awesome character Delia, I think you definitely captured the optimism and innocence in that transition period, perfectly. I love your depth of field here, it blends so nicely with his clothing and all. Beautiful work!

Very well done Delia! He looks to be an interesting and fun character. Headed for lots of adventure I'm thinking! Love his smile, it's so hard to create good expressions and you have done a wonderful job with this little fellow! I also like the nice DOF effect you achieved here. The background is so pretty with the bright orange flowers! Very nice work indeed hon! :icondancekittyplz:

Good illustration.
I think, it is necessary to move the boy on the right party of a picture.
