Invitation to the Illusion by longestdistance Invitation to the Illusion by longestdistance
Title is from this beautiful song by Haruka Shimotsuki: youtu.be/k9YCMkjMRkU (Gensou e no sasoi)

I needed to get used to putting more effort into my pics so I did it this way: work on it on and off, when I didn't feel like working on it, I stopped. That way, every time I sat down to work on this, I put in the same amount of effort and time. (*Usually when I work on a pic I do it all in one go, and as quick as possible)

From now on I'm gonna try using this method (also a part of my goal to improve general time management)
That way I will put more effort into my pics (I get told I get lazy with my pictures and it's true) but that means I'll probably be submitting less not that I submit a lot to begin with

Hnnghhhhhhhhh thank you so much for the DD :iconbawplz: ;_______;
I love the description, they clearly thought more of this pic than I did ;_;
And the fact that it says "suggested by many" omg you guys :iconlazydieplz:

Invitation to the Illusion by *longestdistance is so soothing it will put your mind at ease. Its soft charming colours invite you to daydream while letting the little things in life remind you of what's truly important to you. A delicate and compelling jewel from this artist's gallery.

When I saw that picture I immediately though this should have a DD, then I scrolled down and saw there was already one ;)
This is absolutely perfect, both the technique and beautiful story ❤
