FF project: Cloud II by Tacoly FF project: Cloud II by Tacoly
Edit!
~Aiyai was nice enough to get rid of the dark mark for me, so I updated it ^^

The story about Tacoly and the Eraser
One night, Tacoly decided she would finish her Cloud picture. She decided not to rush it and was happy with how it was turning out. Using her fingers to add shading to the arm, she suddenly noticed a darker part inthe middle of the shoulder. Not very worried, she picked up her eraser to fix that. However, when she used the eraser, a dark mark appeared. She examined the eraser carefully to find out what it was, but didn't get an answer. So, she turned it and tried to erase the mark. It didn't work. Starting to panick, she used her nails to remove it. That didn't work well either. Suddenly determined to remove it, she used a scissor to scrape it away, the top layer of paper following in the progress. When she was done, she noticed that she had failed - the mark was gone but so was the paper, and so the mark would always stay.
A bit sad over ruining the picture, she gave up and rushed it until she was finished.

Yup, the true story xD Gawd, that spot-mark thingy really annoyed me.
This could've been one of my better pics, however, the clothes totally ruin it D:

Tools used:
H-9B pencils
Evil eraser
Fingers

Time:
5 hours

Edit: Thank you so much for all the attention on this piece <3 100 favs! :w00t:

haha, that's ok. most people do that, like, "OMG his hair is wrong and I messed up this and that..." and I'm just thinking, "Um, not until you mention it" XP

ah, it's alright though. not a huge problem; just something I noticed ^_^

Your welcome, and I'll try. Is it alright if I use your art for reference?
Your welcome. I can understand though, I pry would've been quite frusterated too if that had happened to me. I usually get really angry even at pencil smudges LOL XD
