AnitaInverarity is an amazing artist I knew from RedBubble.

Every illustration drawn by Anita is full of emotions, and the heroes seem to be alive. I can also spend hours looking at all the details on the background: grass which seems to grow at this very moment; sun which is shining brightly, flowers moving with the wind..

These are really bright pictures, but made in just black and white!
