This is quite the cute maiden I drew. The patterns in her skirt took a great time to make. I think she came out pretty well. During that time, the Rococo was the popular style. All the paintings were done with sweet coloring and happiness. Everyone in Europe was caught by the happy vibe. All the happiness was short lived. France was making its way towards the Revolution. Britain was in the middle of losing its American Colonies. As for Spain, they were stuck with the Spanish Inquisition. Nothing else needs to be said. Spain was one of the few...

As for me, I like pink. Pink is one of my favorite colors. I wish there were nicer pink dresses. Transparency is also a bit hard to manage.
