Graceful Wallpaper by glitcher Graceful Wallpaper by glitcher
Kee-rikey! This took longer than expected. You can thank my crashable laptop for that. Here we have a 1024x768 wallpaper of our favourite flyingfish sitting on Saint Mark's column in the Piazzetta dei Leoncini. (She pushed the lion statue off, killing dozens of babies.) Since threatened to tank-flatten me over the name conflict, I decided to rename her as Grace, formerly Gail. And no, it's not for the title pun.

I had to summon all my magic when colouring this and I'm quite chuffed with the way the bell tower turned out. (The first person to identify it gets a kiss.) I think I could have devoted more time to the clouds, though. I was tired and just wanted to get it over with. I also made a few changes to Grace besides the name. The wavy fin on her back is gone, since I had the foresight to realise it would be awkward to draw from certain angles. Her ear fins have also been replaced with jack plugs as earrings. But more importantly, I decided to redraw her face with a more traditional American style. It's something I've been meaning to try and I think it suits anthros better. I need to get a helluva lot more practice with it, mind. But right now, my eyes are bloodshot and I think my pulse has stopped.....

at first glance it remind of a cover from an aria magna graphic novel (adv and tokyo pop). Seeing it in more detail I see ot so uch due to the character being an android or cyborg. I like his' (her's?) dragon fly like wings.

Awesome wallpaper. I like Grace's facial expression. She has a really cute, dreamy expression.

The bell tower does look familar. I just can't remember where I've seen it before.

At least the babies died for something great. :) Bellisimo, reminds me of the plaza of the same(?) theme in GT4.
