I Was Young and Full of Grace by Bitterlimeparakeet I Was Young and Full of Grace by Bitterlimeparakeet
My half of an art trade with tessa7338- [link] (darn I wish I knew how to make links out of people's usernames! xD)
The title was kind of a response to the picture she did for me, and it's also a line from a song... But the full title should be "When I Was Young and Full of Grace," I couldn't fit the "when" in. *frustrated* She also looks young and graceful in the picture, so it fits I guess! lol I'm not sure what possessed me to put a pool of water in the clouds, but eh, it happens. =P Hope you enjoy it! =D

Pretty. The background has a very mystical look to it. I like the colour scheme. Nice job with the pose and the shading.

Oh, for linking people's usernames you either put:
:icon usernamehere: without the spaces to get this:

:iconfelineastatine: or to just get the name, :dev username: without the spaces: =felineastatine.

I love the background on this, and the title, obviously. XD

Oooh, thank you so much! I've been trying to figure that out for ages. =D

Hehe, I thought you might catch the title. xD

Yeah, I found it out once when trawling the Help section. xD

I'd have felt a bit silly if I hadn't got it, seeing as I did make a picture based on it.

Why didn't I ever think of the help section? o.O Silly me. xD

Hehe, yes, you must know the words backwards and forwards by now! =D

Heheh, normally I never use 'help' until I'm really stuck.
I think I was actually trying to find out how to use thumbnails. x.x

xD Yeah, I ended up listening to that song about 25 times over the course of making that...

Same here, I think I used it once to help a friend who was being harrassed, but that was kind of in a different category I guess. =X

Well there's nothing wrong with that, it's a great song! =D Lot's of good symbolism. ;)

Thank you! I've been practicing this shading stlye for a while, but it's really hard to get used to at first! And I really like your style of shading too. =D

thank you. well I like to be a bit different with my style. Originally I used the burn/dodge too but then I tried to mimic the Pokemon style of shading (Ken Sugimori) and sorta come up with my own way of doing things.

Yeah, I used the dodge/burn tool for a little while too, but then when I started applying for pet sites, they wanted this kind of style. So it sort of grew from there. xD

lol! nope, 'fraid not. unless It's a good thing that you're not the only one...then it would be 'fortunately not, for you.' or...something. lol. I kinda' picked it up from a friend's sister, too. :P
