I couldn't help but notice ~CitizenXCreation's comment about the drugs "you're on". My friend always tells me my art looks like I'm on acid, so if I'm on acid what are YOU on?? XD jk Seriously, I cant even just browse your gallery, I always have to take like half an hour on each of your pieces! If you ever, for some psychotic reason left DA, I think I would be heartbroken. true story. lol
No, not edited. There are some tricks on making it so bright. Since I use fluorescent gel pens, they absorb light. The more light I have, the stronger the color, so I go outside in the early morning and take a picture.Natural light seems to work the best. Also, I use a dark blue to shadow the purple for more contrast. I go to Staples, that office supply store, and get their gel pens.
