Created Friday, August 3, 2001, according to the file metadata. I think this was done by Saturnine, but I legitimately cannot remember without digging out my old mIRC logs.
This came out of irc.draconic.net, I think in the Dragon^2 room moderated by Eclipsace, an anything-goes discussion-and-light-RP channel.
Definitely my first gift art. Probably not the first image of my 'sona, but it's awful close.
I remember being completely blown away that this guy just drops in out of nowhere, chats with everyone for a day or so, and the next day he's CTCPing people this picture he did based on what happened in chat the day before. I was humbled, I was flattered, I was over the moon, and I wonder what happened to Eclipsace, Saturnine and Uruloke.
