Just Us by swanprincessfan Just Us by swanprincessfan
I always thought that there might have been something going on between Odette and Derek during their teen years in the Swan Princess, even though it was never confirmed. This is just a scene that popped into my head. Derek and Odette have found a secluded spot to be with one another, finding it harder and harder to avoid the prying eyes of their parents.

I may have to write an accompanying fanfic for it...

Anyway, I think I am getting better at this whole digital painting thing. Though I'm not to the standard I want to be, it's an improvement nonetheless ;) I should probably make a habit of practicing more often :shrug:

I may come back and update this, but I've had enough of it for now. If I can be bothered, I'll make changes later down the track.

Haha, I began it, but I still haven't gone any further. I still have the whole thing planned out in my head though. Maybe I'll get pen to paper soon :)

haha... not many people seem to like Derek (for fairly obvious reasons :XD: "What else is there?") but I definitely can't imagine Odette with anyone else... Thanks for taking a look! :dance:

Ahhhh I love it! :D It's so sweet. And it was very obvious they had feelings for each other at that age, although I had never considered them having a secret affair. Brilliant idea. ;)

I am loving your works, definitely improving. :)

Yeah, the more I stare at the image, the more I realise that I am going to have to write an accompanying story :D

Glad to see that someone else thinks I am progressing too :) Have you got any other SP works pending?

haha I don't read fanfic stuff. (No particular reason.) But I think this is definitely a story I would read! :D

I'm still working on the drawing I started for the Parents contest. haha I got so slow because of work but hopefully now I will get to work on it more. I was actually planning on working on it here in a few minutes. :) I'm so excited about it. Although I'm afraid the characters look odd. I said I'd just blame it on the fact that they're "cartoons." :giggle: I'm sure I'll get it looking decent enough though. lol

Furthermore, she doesn't wear the locket he gave her until this age. If she had gone so long without it, why start now? ;)

I know right? To me, that was always a kind of sign about where the relationship was heading.

Best of luck with your belated parents entry. I never bothered to enter since I donated prizes, and I just didn't know what I'd draw anyway. The only thing I really wanted to do was William and baby Odette, and that's about all. I'm sure your piece will be lovely when it's finished :dance: Can't wait to see it :)

I think Odette kinda started liking him earlier. She kept following him around; you just don't do that if you hate the person. If they ran away, you'd run the other way. haha And everyone knows that guys being mean = they like you. And it's proven at the end, Derek says "...I always have." Don't know why they ever fought so hard to hide it, for so long. Silly people. :giggle:

Thank you! I've gotten almost half of it colored now. It's not going quite as well as I'd hoped, but it's not too bad.

I really need to sit down and watch the movie and observe for swans. I found two more, flipping through pictures, that in all these years I'd never noticed. It's amazing how you can watch something over and over or read something over and over and it still be new to you. :giggle:

Yeah, the swan motif is everywhere in the film, I've been adding to the list over the years too :D I don't know about you, but I always get a real kick out of finding another one. :heart:

Definitely. The ones I just finally realized were the one in the library, and the one where the servants are watching the ball and Odette is pecking at the window. Hadn't noticed those ones before, shame on me. lol
