for some reason I love the jarring yellow fighting with those red lines, and then there's blue... it is a pleasing tension of primary color, love it!

hah thanks, it makes me happy to know that people like this obnoxious use of colour. I always get a bit nervous when it comes to colouring and so feedback like this is much appreciated :D

no such thing! I like it when colours hit you in the eyes and knock you down.

I only watched you in the first place so I wouldn't spend all my time favouriting your stuff. This isn't working out at all! :(
I would like to be sat on by a cow now.

You know how attracted I am to yellow. I swear, I fly to it like a bug to the light. I would totally want a huge goat like that to lay across. Imagine how comforting it would be, just to know that it's THERE.
Though, I do gotta ask you something. What inspires your color choice?

IT'S A COW.
I thought that the title may have been a bit of a clue...

I choose my colous depending on what colour cardboard i am painting on. The yesslow of this in real life is more of a dark mustard. I did not intend on burning the retinas as much as this picture has ended up doing.

I'm pretty rubbish with colour so i just stick with what i know, but i'm getting better i think, gradually.

LOL yeah I know, I was just messin with you.
OR MAYBE I JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO READ OKAY!?

Burning out your retinas is all the rage these days I hope you know. Everyone is doing it. Well...all the cool people anyway :ninja:

The colours are amazing, as always. And despite my dislike for cows in general (they all look slat-sided and unhealthy when I see them in real life, for some reason), I'd like a cow to crush my legs too. It looks cosy. XDD

AH! i love cows! their soft eyes and droopy ears :love:
and it does look cosy doesn't it- i forgot all about how much it would actually hurt while drawing this...

I don't think the cows in our town get enough to eat, they look scary!

And while I'm at it, I'm going to add that I love how her skin is all bluish-greenish-yellow. <3

hah i don't know-
i was pretty scared while i was scribbling this 'cause i was in a total bogan town (i know that it's bogan because every time i have caught the train on that line there are always ticket inspections) and i had been sent home early from volunteering after severe storm warnings and there was a large black cloud leering at me trhough the window pane. AND I didn't have an umberella.
