ACEO Trade with Mrs. Dragarta 
    Gosh it was an absolute honor trading with you, Mrs. Dragarta! Indy and Kraken are absolutely adorable! Its been so long since I've had the opportunity to draw house cats, let alone ones as fluffy as maine coons. I forgot how much fun it was to render all of that fur and tabby patternsThank you ever so much for being my partner for this month and I truly hope you like it!

     I'm afraid I don't know how you store and display your cards and so I wanted to let you know that Indy's body and ears stick up beyond the ACEO dimensions. If you'd like I'd be more than happy to fold them over before sending it off to you.
Onwards and Upwards

Whoops, it was supposed to be the mouth. I suppose I still need a bit more practice with cats huh? :iconnervous-laughplz:

:D This piece was done in Copic markers. They're a great investment so long as you take care of them and remember to buy refills.

Oh my, what a cute couple! It's always great to see them both together in ACEO :hug: . The only litlle thing I am missing here are their whiskers, but that is not so important really :) Thank you so much for such beatiful card, I hope I won't dissapoint you with my part :D

And about storing - I think ears are just fine for my album, but I think that Indy's body has to be fold, sorry about that!

It's really no trouble, Mrs. Dragarta! I'm just so glad to hear that you like it! ^u^ Agreed, I was so disappointed that I couldn't include them. I've yet to find a way on layered pieces to cut a line thin enough to add details like thin fur and whiskers. In the past, I've tried going over top with acrylic paint and colored pencil after a piece was assembled but they never turned out the way I wanted (I just don't have a steady enough hand). I was thinking about trying white wire next but I was worried about shipping a card internationally with such a tough 3D element. :worries: The paper might accidentally wrinkle or warp around it in transport. 

Oh golly please don't fret! Your works are always astounding! I'm sure whatever you come up with will be absolutely lovely! :D

It's no trouble! Folding the body over actually makes it so that I can ship the card in a sleeve. ^u^ It makes for a much safer trip.

Sure thing! :) I was just thinking about drawing them simply on the top layer. I know it would be too difficult to cut such tiny pieces :D

Oh and I am sorry that I am a bit late with my part but I should submit it yet before new round will be published :)

I love this, it's so cute and the colors are reaaally nice! :heart: The parts sticking out from the frame make it very visually interesting, too, I like that. Also the photo presents the card awesomely.
Edit: the only thing that bugs me a little is where the white parts are visible beyond the black lineart, I think it would look cleaner if they were cut off (or if they were colored). But otherwise this is a really pretty card!

Oh goodness, thank you so much, Mrs. Elektroyu! >u< <3 It really means a lot to me. I just adore your realistic aceo work.

Oh gosh, I completely missed that! Thank you so much for letting me know! It's been so long since I've done one of these layered pieces that I forgot to go back and check for white borders before assembling it. If I can safely remove the tape from the back I'll be sure to go back and clean it up before I send it off!
