Dusk + Down - ACEO by sphinxmuse Dusk + Down - ACEO by sphinxmuse
The original, one-of-a-kind Dusk + Down ACEO is currently up for sale! I am also offering prints of this piece through deviantART.

This is my very first ACEO (Art Cards, Editions and Originals) image. I only truly learned about this art movement rather recently, although I had some knowledge of ATC (Artist Trading Cards) which are essentially the same except for the fact that ATCs cannot be sold, only traded. In keeping with the requirements of ACEOs, this drawing is 2.5" x 3.5" meaning that the full size image on your screen is bigger than the actual piece. This drawing actually began in black ballpoint pen while I was contorted in the seat of a plane on my way to Mexico.

The title is inspired by the color palette and by the texture of soft feathers. Perhaps the figure is Freyja with her falcon cloak? He or She was not very forthcoming with his/her identity.

Size: 2.5" x 3.5"
Media: black ballpoint pen, Prismacolor colored pencils, watercolor, acrylics, sumi ink

It looks like an ancient mask, or a wise old indian.
I love the mood it creates!

Oh this is beautiful :heart: It reminds me of a Susan Sedon Boulet (whose work I love) but obviously it has your own gorgeous and distinctive style. Stunning :)

I love Susan Seddon Boulet - she is definitely one of my favorite artists. So thank you very much for the compliment of comparing this to her work!
