Okay, so... This is my entry for :icontincek-marincek:'s "Paint my OC" contest. [link] (It, of course, doesn't stand a chance against some awesomely professional entries submitted for the contest but I have more personal reasons for wishing to participate in this contest than winning).

I have so much more to say about it so do excuse me as I proceed to ramble now. xD

First of all. OMG, this took me so many hours! *dies* No, seriously, I think this beat the previous record time of mine of working on a single drawing (back then those were roughly 40 hours, I believe). Yes, I am am THAT slow, indeed. Not even joking. And it is done. I feel empty. And so very pleased since I pretty much pushed myself to new limits with this work. ^^

Now. Previously I mentioned that I had a personal reason for taking part in the contest. Let me tell you why. It was about... 4 years ago when I colored my first lineart (first attempts in GIMP, oooooh, the nostalgic memories~). It was a simple lineart I found on dA. When I was done, I was quite proud with the outcome, printed it out and brought to school to show to others too. Someone asked me if I drew the lines also and back then I lied that I did. Oddly enough, it gave me a slight push art-wise. I realized that I wanted to be able to create a lineart like that one day as well.
At this very moment I am not too far from that anymore and it makes me extremely happy. And I decided to redo this and push my limits once more to see what I could achieve if I tried enough. This time without lying, however.
And finally the lineart is turned into a vision that I had in my mind. And I can't help but wonder if after another 4 years I'll be able to create a lineart and fully finish a drawing in this level without forcing myself as much. ...We'll see in 4 years, I guess? XD

Also, why did I pick this lineart? I couldn't resist. This girl was so angelic and beautiful that I just wanted to try and attempt to breathe a life into her. I hope it worked out well. ^^

Okay. I am done rambling. If you actually read this - you are my hero in patience, indeed. xD

COMMENTS = LOVE

First of all, lines were drawn by a much more talented artist than me. XD My part of the work is coloring and the bg. I am happy to know that you like the final outcome, though. (^-^)

Awww, thank you! :blush:
It's all about challenging yourself to see your limits and ending up happily surprised. : ) You should try that out too. It's a great boost for a confidence and I think it's what every artist needs. ^^
