ACEO/ATC: Freedom

My part of ACEO trade with secret partners from Draci-info on theme Pirates for Katangacz and her character Julie - yeah, you see right, there is no dragon! :D Heh, yes, my family members were quite surprised that I drawed card with real things and animals only (well, Cacadu like this is not real - I changed colors of real white Cacadu with yellow markings into Julie-cacadu). We had to add some bonus to this round. Can't you see how this card is special? Let me tell you. This card is little bit like a puzzle game. Katanga asked us to draw on her card at least a small piece o sea... So I splited my idea for her card into two smaller! This card is moveable collage - rear card is filled up with sea and that pirate sailing ship, the front part of card is fullbody parrot cut out from paper glittering on the daylight. From behind I add paper stripe (invisible even when you remove the rear card and watch just the parrot itself) which holds parrot on the rear card and at the right place.
I think it's another more first-time card again :D I haven't drawed parrot for ages and I'm not sure if I had ever drawn ship and sea before? O.o I enjoyed playing with this card, although it makes me hard times sometimes :D 

used: on front part (the parrot): liners, watercolors, tiny scissors + google reference images of cacadu parrot (I drawed some pose in the middle of those I liked :D) ; on rear part (the ship and sea): graphit pencil, acrylic paint
paper: on front part: white paper with colorfull tiny glitters (same as can be seen here a little: Paper-shine) ; on rear part: smooth cool grey thick card stock

shot in different position on parrot (colors are bit off here ^^;):

Birds are by far, one of the most difficult subjects to tackle artistically for many people.
This artist has achieved that sense of the delicate skeletal structure beneath the soft fluffy covering of the bird form through a perfect combination of shading, color and subtly placed lines . There is not a lot of clutter and waste obstructing the view. By keeping the line application ,as per the body structure, to a minimum the artist has followed the rule of " Less is Best".
In the area of the feathers the opposite is true. Feathers require great detail and attention to a wide variety of line application. This has been successfully employed.
The wonderful positioning of the bird so high above a ship on the blue is just the right finishing touch. Wonderful work!!!

Už jsem zmínila, jak mi občas trvá na něco odpovědět? ^^

Inu. Prve. Díky za kartičku. To losování partnerů na infu se mi dokáže hodně trefit do nálady a vkusu pro určité téma. ;)
Samotná kartička je originální a nádherná, ten papouch tomu dodává úžasnou hloubku a prostor. Tomu nahrává i to, že pozadí nemá lineart, kdežto papouch ano a krásně detailní. Ohromně se mi líbí peří a pařátky papoucha, to, že jsi jim lehkými ohyby dodala třetí rozměr. Opravdu luxusní kousek v mé sbírce. :)

Díky! Hug

Hehe, se mnou je to stejné :D

Tak to jsem moc ráda, vlastně hned dvakrát! ^^ Kartička mě moc bavila, byla příjemná výzva nakreslit si konečně pořádnýho papoucha :) a jsem moc ráda, že losování vychází, nejsi první kdo si to chválí, i když mi opravdu není jasné jak to vlastně dělám :D
Awwwww, děkuji za takovou chválu, od zkušeného autora jako jsi ty to opravdu moc potěší! :aww: :hug:

O božskosti kakaďáka se snad nemusím zmiňovat, ale co mě zaujalo - ta loď! Měla bys být někdy dokopána k nějakým scenériím, trochu víc než pozadí, styl provedení té lodišky je nehorázně boží :meow: :D Docela bych byla zvědavá na takový ostrov s pirátskou lodí, hehe :D
