Amethyst and Emerald by Cataclysm-X Amethyst and Emerald by Cataclysm-X
Okay so here it is. My very, veryveryveryveryveryvery first fantasy drawing made of pastels, which was 100% made from imagination and drawn on a larger scale than A4. What was I thinking? :noes:

So please be gentle people. :invisible:

As you may have read in my journal I haven't been feeling so well lately. I've been working on this to feel better, and it really helped so when I look at this I'm getting happy, yay. :)

Plus a lot of people liked my drawing of Maria (see Sketch dump). Something that started as just another regular sketch turned out to be a something others liked too so I thought I would give it a go with colours.

I wouldn't have posted this if it wasn't for the encouraging words of ~Finnguala, *EatToast, =M-a-e-e, ~Crimefish, allietheapple, =iloveargento, ~Zorala, *PockyStik, lulus_moogle and DaniLovesPandas through Twitter!!! Thank you guys!

Stuff I used
- Coloured paper 34 x 26 cm
- Derwent pastel pencils
- blending stick
- pencil sharpener
- eraser to erase pencil lines

Time spent: 8 hours or so!
