Is it just me, or does she look like Velma Dinkley, from the Scooby-Doo franchise?

I love it, I enjoy the enlarged butterflies in the foreground and the pretty blossoms in the background. I also like that you gave this a sharp look with the outline around the subject. That gives it that cartoon flair but your shading (as always) is astounding and makes the cartoon more real. You're an inspiration to me on a regular basis. Keep up the great work!

One reason I like the character in this rendering is she makes me think of the animal people that populate Newford. If you haven't read any of Charles DeLint's books, I highly recommend them.

I love the use of color against the cherry blossom background.

I love the thickness of the lines and the colors are really nice. Because of the orange of the shirt and the butterflies and the background it kind of reminds me of fall vs. winter even though flowers and butterflies are more like spring xD. Dunno why...T_T but it's super pretty.

Nice. She looks like Daphne from the Scooby Doo Series.

But with a picture name after a plant, the plant itself doesn't seem to be getting all that attention. It's in the background by itself, while your character and the monarchs are getting the attention. In fact, it seem that the monarchs are the attention of the illustration. This should have been named after the butterflies. Well that's is my opinion on your illustration. If the cherry blossoms were suppose to be the main subject for this picture they should be getting more of the attention.

It's still a good picture though.

You're thinking of Velma, Daphne is the sassy chick :)

And actually the character's name is Sakura so hence the title.

Oh! I got her name mix up. Well it's been a while since I have seen Scooby Doo when I sent you my comment(I saw a Scooby Doo movie earlier today because there was nothing else to watch).

Anyway, I understand why you called the picture Sakura.
