OC.Gaia: Memories to Treasure by dawnshue OC.Gaia: Memories to Treasure by dawnshue
omg. seriously. PLEASE FULL VIEW. The previous does my hard work no justice. xP <3

Time: a lot... probably like 12+ hours) Dx
Media: Completely done in OpenCanvas3+

Progress Pics: (from oldest to latest)

Wow. I'm quite amazed I got up the... patience to do this. This is probably the only image with more than 2 people and several animals (Palas to be specific). Which is probably why I killed myself, using over 110 layers and 12+ hours. Yeah, no wonder I don't do group pictures. They're terrifying... D; It's too bad OC funked up on me and wouldn't let me save the eventfile. :( <3

But I'm extremely happy I went through with it because I love the results~! <3 I should rename this picture rape of the Addition layer because I used like 10 Addition layers. xD Usually I use only 1-3 or something.

Anyway, this is my entry to the Elderspark Mana Spirits Art Contest held by :iconpaperghost: and :iconpreciousflame:. I love their art and couldn't resist drawing something for them. :D <3 I'm amazed at all the other wonderful entries already submitted, good luck to me. ;) Oh well, it was lots of fun doing this picture and I learned a lot of things--plus I touched up on my animal drawing skills--sorta. xD <3

Well, that's all for now~! And oh right, I'm really sorry I've been pushing things back. I was hoping to finish a kiriban (sorry adaxe~! I am working on it!) and several commissions, but because of this entry I've pushed them back even more. ^^; But I promise to get them done asap~! <3

This is a really cute pic. I like how you laid out the characters in polaroids. The background is nice. I like how the clouds look against the gradient sky.
