ripe and ready

It's been an age since I did a Diva Challenge and I nearly didn't do this one - because I struggle with Pokeroot.  It never looks nice, always a bit too big or two small.  Or messy, or uptight.  But I think I hit on a way to work with it that I like. 

And it all came about by working with it alongside the boxy delight that is Cubine!  Now when I draw Pokeroot I imagine it has to fit into a small square space, in this case a border, but then let it bulge out a bit.  And suddenly I like it!

  8. excellent idea! this gives it a little structure that it normally does not have. That is my main struggle with Pokeroot - it can get pretty wild pretty fast - but this implementation does a great job of giving it bounds while still letting the stems give it movement and freedom. I am so glad you decided to take the challenge this week and share your idea.
