Did you eat your vegetables? by solfieri Did you eat your vegetables? by solfieri
These are Ceres and her son Thomas (and their nameless cat, occasionally called Striped). Ceres is far from a spoiling or overprotective mother, but that doesn't stop the little boy from using his cuteness to manipulate people into giving him stuff. Thomas has mastered the act of pretending to be four years old instead of seven. It works with Alice, but his parents are used to it.

This watercolour is a couple of months old by now; a very simple pic made on a whim, without worrying about composition or details or anything. I like it a lot. <:3 I came up with a different painting technique while working on this one, a bit drier and more precise, but at the same time less "clean" than my usual type of shading.

As always, thank you for all the faves, comments and watches! It's always a compliment seeing those messages coming up in my inbox. :love:

This is such a wonderful use of watercolors. I love how you blended the colors - especially on Ceres' skirt *A* I also love the effect on Thomas' pants and shirt.

AND THOSE FEET! //stares some more

Então Alice cai nos encantos no thomas, o resto do elenco ? XD O guri tem bonus extra de Cuteness :heart: Muito fofo !!!

Ceninhas de perosnagens interagindo, cenas da vida cotidiana deles, awww ficou tão lindo ;A; mostra mais com os chars de Penumbra pra a gente :heart:
As manchas na roupa da Ceres principalemente na parte branca e as estampas pequenas de frutinhas, ficaram muito legais ! E a pele tá um Luuushoo tb :la:

Sua aquarela mais seca ficou linda demais, mas adoro seus dois estilos ! São ambos fantasticos !!!

Often, when we draw without any thought and expectation, works turn incredibily good! This painting style is so interesting! Ant the scene is simply adorable :love: I love Ceres espression, and Thomas is tooooo cute! *_* The cherry on Ceres' dress close to Thomas' head seemed to me a little heart coming from him! :XD: So sweet :love:
And then....you're simply too good in drawing FEEEEEET!!!!! :iconexcitedplz:

Ahaha, I saw what you mean about the cherry looking like a little heart... totally incidental, but I like it! <:3 I loved painting in this style, it's fun and relaxing and doesn't give me those typical watercolour headaches like "omg I gotta throw more water or else this is gonna dry and make plumes and stuff"! :XD:

Thank yooou! :glomp:
