Princess Amethyst by GamingGirl73 Princess Amethyst by GamingGirl73
A late birthday gift for :iconamethyst-cat:

Well this has to be one of the hardest pictures I've done yet @_@ Amethyst herself was simple enough, but the background...urgh. :faint:
Katie requested some time ago that I drew her OC Princess Amethyst but with a new, updated design. I'm happy with how she came out :aww: She helped out with the tiara but the rest I made up myself. (though inspired by her past pictures of her)
The BG was a photo taken by Katie as well and altered to fit into the picture...personally it could be better but after 2 hours of messing about with it (and having the restart the computer from it using so much memory) it'll have to do. >w<
Anyways, enjoy the picture!

Holy geezus! :faint: So much details; especially in her dress. I love it! :D
The background is very well done as well; very nice idea of the photo BG, it even looks as if you actually coloured it. :w00t:
Just too amazing, great work! :clap:

Yaaaaay! :dance::typerhappy::excited::love:

She looks beautiful, thank you soo much for this Sophs!! ^__^

For anyone who's curious, the BG is a picture I took when on a walk up towards Aber Falls which is beyond a small Welsh village called Abergwyngregyn in North Wales. It's a popular Tourist spot and a gorgeous walk, and I've gotta confess I have based Amethyst's Kingdom largely on our (mine and Sophie's) mountainous, countrysidey home, so this pic was perfect for the job. Pain in the arse for poor Soph to alter to fit the picture though, particularly when I was breathing over her shoulder whispering "do this, do that, do the other!!"

So sorry and thank you for your patience Sophs. ^^;

I adore the exquisite detail on her dress, and I love the opaque purple pattern on the end of her shawl. :typerhappy: And of course you know I'm ecstatic with the tiara, considering I helped a small amount with the design (A.K.A was picky as hell :paranoid::blush: ) The castle in the background adds a nice touch, even though you had me chanting "shrink it! Shrink it more!" over and over...wow I really was a pain in the arse wasn't I!? :stupidme:

Again, thank you very very much, I love it to pieces, and I've got the version you sent me as my desktop BG. :w00t::+fav:

Haha! Keyboard madness! :XD:
Awww yay!! You are most welcome! :glomp:

:O Was it Aber Falls?! Wow, I suppose every time I've been up there it's cloudy and miserable :laughing: Hehe, that may be but it's the best place to base it off! Our area has to be one of most spectacular around :nod:
Yeee I was so delighted when you said you loved Amethyst's look! :excited: This is by far one of my better pictures in my gallery of a character :D
Haha! Awww, you weren't that bad :hug: I'm glad you did point out what you didn't like, my views of what works or not can get a bit poor after a while ^^;

Again you are most welcome! :aww: And yayz!! :la:
...I still say the one I sent you is better >w>

This turned out really well, all that effort paid off :D. I would like to know how putting too much detail into one picture manages to confuse old computers though (I had a similar problem).

It was because this one had so many layers on it :O_o: I think it had 40-50 layers running all at the same time. Plus the actual size of this picture was way bigger (this one's been shrunk 75%)
