With living things my goal is always to make them appear vivid enough in their own character that they have breath of their own. That they appear like they could move, grow, be eaten; just that they have an air that make them to be more than cold plain realism. I also love it when my work inspires people to get closer and notice more of the beauty in these things in their everyday life.
