Carpe Diem by WeirdHyena Carpe Diem by WeirdHyena
"'Carpe' translates literally as 'pluck', with particular reference to the picking of fruit, so a more accurate rendition is 'enjoy the day, pluck the day when it is ripe'. The extended version of the phrase 'carpe diem, quam minimum credula postero' translates as 'Pluck the day, trusting as little as possible in the future'."

- The Phrase Finder, [link]

This started out as a redo for a commissioner, but it was turned down. So, I edited the dragoness into my bf's character, Kiila :D This was a nice practice for backgrounds, although I kinda dislike the lineart. I wish I lined it with a dark green instead of black, herm...

Anywho, enjoy :)

Kiila(c) - ~Kurtassclear
Artwork by me, although the background was heavily influenced by this photograph ~ [link]

Hehe thank you! I'm *forcing* myself to do backgrounds so I can freakn' learn how to do them. I'm learning most of my techniques from a close friend of mine *Rattlesnakedefender who uses messy brush strokes to do her backgrounds. But ugh, they are still fookin hard D:

Pbbt, you've got so much skill that backgrounds don't need to be added *laughs* Btw, when's the wedding again? I should know this but it has eluded me D:

Ooooooh, niiiice! Some people can just slap some messy brushstrokes on and it's a beautiful freakin' work of art, I swear.... SO MUCH TALENNNTTT

The wedding? Hahah... oops, I forgot! There's another person who I apparently owe a wedding to, so... as long as the two don't interfere (or so long as you don't mind polygamy? Or would it be polyandry? Hahaha...), I'm open. XD
