:iconlove: SPECIALLY DEDICATED TO :iconlove:

:heart: :iconderzorvadur: :heart:

This is my birthday Present for =Derzorvadur who is my beloved boyfriend of 4 years, almost 5 years??? Oh hell I don't remember, all I know is that I love you baby :flirty:

A Matryoshka Doll or a Russian nested doll is a set of dolls of decreasing sizes placed one inside the other. "Matryoshka" ( Матрёшка ) is a derivative of the Russian female first name "Matryona", which is traditionally associated with a fat, robust Russian woman. :giggle:

I decided to do this to show Levi's amazing simplicity still complex personality, is difficult for him to be the true self that he is sometimes, therefor I see him like the very little Matryoshka doll that is really deep inside all the rest of covers that hide his true self, he's reserved and shy when he doesn't know you well, but once he gets to know you then all becomes so simple and handable, just as the tiny little doll inside the big Matryoshka. I hope you all like it, specially you my darling :)

:#1: BTW this is actually a protrait of LEVI in my style I did it looking at one of his picture. Hope you see the similitude.

WOW!! This artwork is rather engaging!! The diagonals within the composition help animate the drama and I do feel somewhat uneasy or intimidated. I really do like the borders you give to your artwork too (in general) to establish closure.

thanks for your comment :D

by saying borders you mean the black lines? that is ink to
underline the final drawing, I might get rid of those lines
in a future. I thought they didn't look that nice :hmm:

thanks so much once again :handshake:
