This is ridiculously late, because I promised [ profile] fullmoon_dreams this drawing back in March. I am so sorry, but real life got so tumultuous my art muse packed her things and left. But she's back now, and here's the drawing. ♥

This is an illustration to [ profile] fullmoon_dreams's fic Once In A Blue Moon, chapter 15 (Summer Is Over). I have other illustrations in the works that I've also promised though they might take just a tad bit longer to be finished, since both [ profile] bigbangblackout and [ profile] rsgames have kicked off. But they will be delivered, I promise, and I'm 99.999999% they'll be before OiaBM is finished. ♥

I had a lot of fun with this drawing. It's done in A3 format, and I sketched it first on cheap paper before I traced it (is that the correct term? My dictionary fails me here, I'm afraid.) out on "watercolour paper". Then I cheated using watercolour pencils, faffed around with a few different brushes and —voilà— the drawing's finished. ♥ I'm still on my first stumbling steps with this technique, but I must say that I love it and I think I'll use it more and more in the future. What do you think of it?

Look, looook, it has a background as well! Well, sort of, but still! Colour! ♥
