my part of trade with *Arsillyd - she wanted some blue aceo so this is only blue (and a bit of gold) ACEO :D

used: watercolors for background, two blue inks for lineart, color pencils for dragon
paper: light silver metallic paper with tiny-glitters effect

ACEO (ATC) are traditionally made card 2.5" X 3.5" (6,4 X 8,9 cm)

This piece is certainly a beautiful work of art. The coloring is absolutely graceful as well as the back ground. The figure is beautifully done. The head is a nice shape, rounded at the jawline and squared at the muzzle. Now, the human hands really set this apart from most pieces, it gives a certain uniqueness that is not found often. The feathers are masterfully done as well as the fur. The shading is beautiful, nicely done. The ears are very interesting: normally feathered dragon ears start around the ear but this expands from the ear it itself. Not a common thing. Well done!
What do you think?

(this has been in my "to critique pile" for a while now, thought id start to catch up.
First off i would have never thought the back ground was water color! the color is such a deep blue and well...skylike. Good job on keeping the background out off the dragon as well.
The dragon its self is very well shaded and the feathers are proportioned beautifully. The gold ascent below the ear directs the viewers eye to the head and then the feathers keep you going.
The only thing you could improve on in this piece is the neck between the head and the wing joint. The fringe on the lower neck blowing back erases some of the neck, making it look angular. I don't really know how you could fix this either? perhaps draw it coming down like how it is on the under belly.
Overall its an amazing ATC, I'm still in love with back ground. Fantastic job!
