Castalia by tiffc Castalia by tiffc
Okay well!

This is my submission for :icondedasaur:'s contest.
And... I am actually pretty happy with how it turned out.

Anyways. Pastels! Yay! It has been quite a while since I've used them. It's also been a while since I completed an image with a background. Of course it required staying up until two in the morning to actually finish it...

Pastels... you are so brave for using them. :faint: They kill me haha.

I really like this piece. ^^ Your proportions are very nice and I LOVE the colors in the sky. :la: Well done.

Haha, I love the way they look! They are just very difficult to use.

Hi Deda, it's been a while but I was finally able to update this with a better scan. Just thought I would let you know because the previous resolution didn't do it justice. :P
