Trade: Thanatos by Agaave Trade: Thanatos by Agaave
This is my half of an art trade with talented *ReQuay! In this picture there is her gorgeous %Cavitto stallion Thanatos. Must love his colors!

Thanatos’ adventures have taken him to Greek so I wanted to make a background to go with his storyline. What could be more Greek than olive trees so I drew few of those gnarly trees with black olives hanging on the branches. I even googled few references for those trees but as usual I ended up exaggerating the knotty trunks... and everything else. So yes, those round, black thingies hanging there are supposed to be olives and not plums even though they look a bit too big for olives... but I guess in fantasy world even olives can be more magnificent than in real life! :dummy:

This picture was super fun to draw even tho it took ages to finish this – sorry for long wait Rebecca!
I took some shots while drawing so who knows if I finally manage to pull off a making of collage of the progess. But no promises – you know I am slow with these things. ;P


:bulletyellow::bulletorange::bulletgreen::bulletorange::bulletyellow: Character © *ReQuay

Tools: Watercolors and colored pencils. Black and grey markers for lines and white gel pen on eyes.



Go and see *ReQuay’s most amazing drawing for me! And while you’re there don’t forget to check rest of her gallery too. :heart:

The suggester said: The details of this picture are just breathtaking. Also the colors are chosen very well and give you a warm feeling as if it's a hot summer day. And the fact that this picture is drawn with traditional medias makes it even more impressive! Trade: Thanatos by `Agaave ( Suggested by Windspirit-Aquaeris and Featured by Astralseed )
