ACEO: Andromeda by Agaave ACEO: Andromeda by Agaave
This little ACEO is for *EspressoOnTheRocks, who won it from a raffle I held earlier this summer.

In this card there is her gorgeous #Cavitto mare Andromeda. I wanted to make something darkish on the background because Andromeda has chosen dishonored path.
Space-like look happened spontaneously – obviously inspiration came from her name. :giggle:

Gorgeous piece! Your colors and how you applied them are amazing! I love how you did the sky, and how it's a reflection of Andromeda's self. And the fact that you put all of this onto a tiny card just adds more to all the greatness. :clap:

These little cards are so much fun to draw and I try to squeeze as much details in them as I can. :D

Well, I think the results of the cards are well worth your effort. ^^ It must be fun and challenging to draw on them, though!

It really is - and also relaxing in between of doing bigger and more time consuming works (even tho I am such slow drawer that I spend also ages with these little cards... :roll:).

Even it's just an ACEO card it looks just beautiful.
I like everything in this picture. The pose ( especially the head) is well choosen. The anatomy is just great,
 as well as shadings and light effects. Nice effect with the purple shadings. :3

And wow, wait! 
Is this pic lineless? ;P

Thanks a lot! :hyperbounce:
I am especially happy to hear that you like the light effects; those are always something I struggle with.

This is almost liness; I cheated by making the lines with grey marker so that they would blend better with other coloring than black lines. :B
Wanted to make more realistic than cartoonish look this time - even though of course there are certain level of cartoonish look also in this picture. ^^

OMG, this is stunning!  I adore Andromeda in your style.  You captured her so beautifully.  And the shading is gorgeous.  I love how you draw manes/tails.  And the shading on the horn is so beautiful.  Definite :+favlove:

Ei tää nyt kovin pahasti oo mennyt ohi kun vasta eilen aamulla postasin tämän tänne dA:han... Eli erinomaisen nopeaa kommentointia! :w00t:

Kiitos paljon! :heart:
Harvinaista, mutta itsekin olen ihan kohtuullisen tyytyväinen.
Ilmeestä tuli vähän turhan epäluuloisen näköinen, mutta jospa se menis tuon kunniattoman polkuvalinnan piikkiin. :D

Musta tuntuu, että tää ei koskaan tullu mun inboksiin ja siks luulin, että tää oli vanhempi työ joka on meny ohi silmien :ohnoes:

Eip midii, tosi hyvä että sullekin jäi onnistunut fiilis! :) Ilme on vähän epäilevä, mutta toisaalta samalla aika avoin. Ainakin mun silmään. xD
