Rapunzel ACEO by Katerina-Art Rapunzel ACEO by Katerina-Art
The timeless fairy tale story of Rapunzel the beautiful princess with the long hair being kept prisoner in a tower by an evil queen.

Limited edition prints from my website
[link]



Completed with watercolors and acrylic on Arches Hot press 2'5 x 3'5

This is my 7th ACEO in my fairytale series, a few weeks ago i had a aceo poll on my website which fairytale to illustrate next? and Rapunzel won the vote :)

I found illustrating Rapunzel a bit challenging , with ACEOS you have limited working space to begin with and trying to include some of the story with the tower , Rapunzel and her long hair was a bit hard i did a few tower drawings before i decided on this one .wanted to make the tower/window and background a bit creepy or scary looking after all i don't think Rapunzel was captive in a very nice place.

Hope you like her :)
thank you for looking :hug: :heart:

really nice work, specially being so small.
The candles in the background are very well done.

Oh yeah,...what does ACEO stand for?
Reply
:iconkaterina-art:
Katerina-Art Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2009  Professional Traditional Artist
the infamous aceos stand for :)

ACEO stands for "Art Cards, Editions and Originals". These cards have one main rule - they are 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches - the size of a trading card, offered by self-representing artists on ebay. They are affordable, collectible and you can trade them, or keep them in an album. Cards are also sold either as originals or editions. Make sure you know which you are buying!
