A friend and I were discussing how we feel after an art show, specifically if we sold artwork at the art show. My friend said he feels like it's time to relax and savor the moment. A victory lap of sorts. As artists we all know the challenge of creating art and the struggle of selling it. So after the success of selling non commissioned work he likes to relax. Me, I'm different. If I have a successful show and sell artwork I just feel challenged. I just look forward to the next art show, to the next piece of art.
AKB48: Miyawaki Sakura - Cherry Blossom by Sumo0172
AKB48: Miyawaki Sakura - Cherry Blossom
Sakura Miyawaki was promoted to HKY48's Team H on March 4, 2012. On January 11, 2014 during HKT48 Team Shuffle she was Transferred to Team KIV. On February 24, 2014 at AKB48 Group Daisokaku Matsuri she was given she a Concurrent Position in AKB48's Team A.

The Sakura or cherry blossom represents the arrival of spring and the renewal of life. Sakura as a young and talented member of AKB48 represents that potential for rejuvenation as well. The purity of a spring and the vitality of youth.

I am self taught artist but I did study graphic communications at the University of Southern Mississippi. My preferred medium is illustration with pencil being my preferred media, namely the Pentel CLiCK 0.5 PD275 JAPAN 9G Mechanical Pencil. I also paint and sculpt when the muse takes me. I am here on deviantART to share my work but also to be inspired by my fellow artists.

Your fanarts of 48Groups are so stunning! :D

For me they're all full of dignity for all the ladies you did draw. All of them reflect dignity and respect for them as performers and human beings. That's why I liked them all. I can feel it on the polishing of the body shapes, or the gaze of all of them.

*applauses*

See you soon! :3

Thank you very much. I really love and respect AKB48, all the 48 Groups and all the members. One of my goals is to help spread their popularity here in America as well as knowledge about them. I hope more people here can see how amazing they are

Thank you. One of the most important things to me is to know I inspire others

I decided to follow because your comments were so level headed and helpful I became curious about you and your art if you had any(I didn't know till I looked at your page). When I visited your page I found your poems very nice. Though I tend not to favorite literature here on dA please know that I like many of your works. I like the way you often change the format of the composition. Very compelling and even if just the challenge of reading them. But your content is very good too. Like Can of Beans, I wondered where you were going but then the realization it's an exhibition of the deadliness of greed. Very well done.

I follow those who intrigue me and you are your work certainly do that. Very much inspiring

My gratitude for those kind words is exponential, like you, I wish to inspire others with my work and I really can't help but feel accomplished when someone, who isn't all that into literature, finds something that appeals to them. I hope to continue bring out inspiring work that you will love.
