Comment with the first 3 pieces:

Inktober 07 Blood Grove by LualaDy Katia by LualaDy Son of the Desert by LualaDy

I still love the desert drawing, only now I'd actually use perspective lines to draw the town in the distance.
The red forest has always been a sort of experimental / exercise / therapeutic / challenge piece. And though I'm glad it turned out good, it doesn't really make me artgasm.
I still love the concept and the mood of Katia (the girl), but those hands make me cringe ^^"

Now, share yours with me, and add your thoughts about it!
Yesterday night, paired with my already too long insomnia period, the trains tooted every 5 or 10min! but when I mean night, I meant way past midnight!!!
Now y'know, I love it, because the train company is on strike...

Result? I feel HORRIBLE.
I'm up since 7 and can't get the courage to do anything. And yes I was planning on getting my job done, so I can finally sleep at night! Because I am way too sensitive to everything you could possibly imagine.
I was so happy yesterday!
A  bed  of bright yellow  dandellions  were sitting  there,  in front  of my window,  casually brightening my day.
And today the ennemy came!  That dirty little  man that would do anything for money.
and  making  tons of  noise...

and there I  thought I'd  have a great day...
Omg, I just noticed it's been already 1year I'm uploading texture packs, wooooo!
Capture by LualaDyI'm getting better at digitalising them too ^^
If you have ideas and suggestions I'm taking!!! (UszatyArbuz already gave me some cool ones =P)
