I will start with a small story, to explain why this art trade is particularly important to me.

Back in 2009/2010, when I was still in my mid teens, I've got my first tablet. At that point, I've already been on dA for 2-3 years, but been focusing on photography. (And had a dream of becoming a photographer... Careful with your dreams. They might come true, so make sure to word them properly. Or you will end up like me. Working as a photographer in a night club.)

My first shizzles were Bleach related, but, at that time, I've also finished another great series - Hyakko. And was so inspired, I've decided to do loads of fan art!! And that's how I've met nanako87 , nowadays also known as SaturninaTheWitch
To my young teeny self, she was somewhat of a goddess ;A;
Already then, her traditional was absolutely breathtaking, and I couldn't believe such skilled person bothered talking to someone as lame as me. Not only that - we actually became quite close friends!

At that time, I've opened requests for the first time, and, god, I nearly had a heart attack when Nana's requested me. Not gonna lie, I've messed up big time, given how much of a lame beginner I was. Like ugh. Blur everything, how the hell do folds work, and all that. I'm still not confident with folds tbh. It's bane of my life, I swear

But, as my life got busier with all the moving and transferring schools and a lot of personal crap that's been going on with me in that period, I've abandoned dA and all my friends on here.

Some managed to find me elsewhere and else how, but generally, I've cut most of my ties off.
Then, 6 months ago, I've started this account, deciding to give myself a fresh new start.

I didn't think I will ever run into someone I've known, except people that stayed in touch with me, but then, when dropping by to thank someone for a fave, I've seen a style I'm certain I was familiar with. So, I've questioned the person with things I've remembered about Nana, since it was a different account. And, blimey, it was her!!

It took some time for her to remember who I was, but when I've mentioned that lame request, not only she's remembered me, but actually found the damn image and made me look at it sjdhgkdjfh xD You're savage as ever

So, I guess we are meant to be friends, given the fact the fate brought us together again, although under different nicknames. I mean... What is the chance of running into the same person twice in such giant community as dA? I still can't believe it happened. xD

But yeah. When we met, I was proper fangirling over Nana and her stuff. Today, 6-7 years after, we are... Having an art trade. And it makes me so proud yet so nervous, as I truly wanted this piece to be a success, especially considering how lame that request was.

Nana asked me to give her OC, Moeru, a nice new dress and idek what I did here. .w.
I just hope you like it bab, because this particular art trade meant SO MUCH TO ME. I mean...
GUYS. I'VE JUST HAD AN ART TRADE WITH MY IDOL OF MANY YEARS.
