Boats and Birds_ Full by MechaBerry Boats and Birds_ Full by MechaBerry
Yaaayyyyy for proper scannage. :D :heart:

Inspired by the song "Boats and Birds" by Gregory and the Hawk. :love:

Though you may notice not all of the lyrics flowing in her hair are from the song Boats and Birds. They're also from The Postal Service's "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight", Death Cab for Cutie's "Marching bands of Manhattan" and "I'll Fallow You in to the Dark". That and a couple random words for the fun of it. And copyrights to the image. Because I'm sneaky. :devilish:

You can't really see it, but the little star on the girls cheek is actually green. X3;

How interesting! The lyrics are a little distracting because they aren't uniform enough, but it's still really nice. Great flow, too.

What a wicked cool design! :floating: I used to try drawing things like this (with words merging with the drawing) and it never worked. But I heart this. XD

it was really fun to do... :o The words weren't intentional at first... but after awhile it seemed kind of empty. So I added more and more detail until I couldn't think of anything else to add without killing it. ^^;
