It's very easy to love Peropero Sparkles, and needless to say I love them! Although I love them though, at this point in my art I wasn't drawing much in the way of mascot proportions, so I decided to combine them with my interest in lolita fashion.
I streamed myself working on this piece on picarto, and I only had one person show up. I'm often very scared of putting myself out there, in the chance of being rejected. So off the heels of the picarto expierence, I felt a little fearless in the "Well, I already failed here. Can't really fail more!" way, which gave me the guts to tag Yurie Sekiya, the artist behind Peropero Sparkles, in the piece on Instagram (the platform I follow her work on).
To my shock, she saw it and added it to her Instagram story.
