Nostalgia by Maquenda Nostalgia by Maquenda
Finished at last! Of course I kinda rushed it again at the end though...I can't help myself..:/ But like my ''Hummingfox'' piece, I learned a lot from this again. <:

The deeper meaning behind this piece can be found here: maquenda.deviantart.com/art/No…


I was also wondering if anyone would be interested in a print of this? I've never sold prints before..
