Artist Comment

Hello, there's been a looong time since I've posted something here that as of my own authority...
But anyways, here we have it.
I made this one a while ago already, but I didn't hava a good title to it, so I didn't post. But recently, a good reason to post it has appeared, along with a nice title. The thing is, my dog died. She was a 13 year old akita inu, and was in very poor health conditions. To be frank, we had her euthanized, for her own sake. She was just too bad to keep on living, so it was better to do so, independent of how sad it would be.
The title is also a homage for her. In a poetic translation, it means "The Full Bloom of May", the month both my dog and I were born, the month she died, and her name, Satsuki (the fifth month).

May you rest in peace, Susu! <3

    sorry for the loss of your dog and a nice homage indeed. I also like the picture, nicely drawn. very nice details to everything, the kimono, eyes, hair, I think, over all, nicely drawn. what stands out the most for me are the flowers.

    Oh, so sorry for your dog Tom. Hope she rest in peace. =/
    And I just loved it, not only the drawing, but the meaning of it. To be sincere, I don't know that Satsuki means the fifth month, and it's one of the names that I like more (NANA's fault, haha). This is the month that I born too, and I'm happy to see a work from you that feature it in any way. ^^
    Good job Tom, keep it up! ~
