ACEO Trade: Qilin of Clubs by ZeitgeistDragon ACEO Trade: Qilin of Clubs by ZeitgeistDragon
This is my part of an ACEO trade with :iconmistress-of-air:
This is her Purple Qilin .I drew it on a 2.5inx3.5in piece of watercolor paper and colored it with 1.0mm ball point pens(not gels) EXCEPT, white gel pen to enhance the highlighted areas. And didn't really want to try to squeeze in a background for fear of ruining it's glory,so i did a boarder.

I tried my best to get the anatomy right and shading. Also the proportions too but, i'm not as sure about that part. I think i may have made the back leg too big and the body might be too long but i was trying to consider the pose it was in too so, i'm not sure.It's also a little crooked too and the scanner didn't do it much justice either.When i did the boarder,I just thought, if this Qilin could only be of one suit in poker cards, It would be of clubs. All and all i'm quite pleased with how it turned out and i hope she likes it.:) Now to finish a long over due trade with someone else.^^;
Here's her drawings of her Purple Qilin

Naah, anatomy is not that strict deal here since all reference art is old (and anatomies are a bit off...and this is maybe not the best moment to say so. |'D)
But yeaaaa it's PURPLE and that's the most important. |3 Colours are stunning and I think you're right with that it works better without background. Besides congrats for getting whole Qilin into one ACEO, it has so much accessories that's not surely easy. x> So, yes I like it.
(By the way, why you think it would be just clubs? Just curious, I myself have not thought about that.)

Since i could only pick one suit to draw on there is what i meant.But I'm not really sure why clubs.Something about this creature just says clubs. And thank you! Honestly, I wanted to try to set the bar high for you as well:blushes:But alas, I'm still not quite at your level.:( But i loved drawing this concept.Your Purple Qilin is awesome.:D Also, When i was thinking about a possible background,i had an idea that prob. would have worked but there just wasn't enough room so, I decided to think of a creative boarder. And so thought,hey,poker card,and some squiggly pattern.:)
