The auction has ended! Will be posting more details on it soon. Thanks you guys!

:star::star::star:

Finally it's done! I had to put this off for quite some time because of work but I decided to try and finish it before the weekend.

I'm really happy with the result! Pardon any errors in the image...since the piece was pretty large I had to scan it in 13 parts.

This is probably the most intricate piece I've done. The linework on the tattoos alone took me a couple of days to lay out and draw. Coloring was another thing haha. But I'm pleased with the outcome of it all.

Stunning. I love the slight asymmetry of the horns, also the soft blending of deep reds and cool blues. It's really beautiful.

I'm still trying to decide if I should be infused with enthusiasm in trying to improve my own artwork after seeing this gorgeous piece or if i should be a little crestfallen over the apparent distance to the moon between our skills. I think I will go for both. Simply love this.
*kind of cursing her lack of money*

The winning bidder is going to be so lucky. I'm a little jelous.

Scanning this was quite a feat haha!

I'm going to get my friends' and brother's help to set up the auction on eBay. They have a lot more experience than I do in this area. Hopefully within the next week it'll be up! :D

Most of your artworks really have horns, right? Women with horns... Hmm... Just like the "Osier"... I saw that from "Heights" book thingy... I think it was yours because it was at your name... Hehehe! :D

Hehe... :)
Is it somewhat like your signature style for your artworks? I was just curious... :D
Anyways, the "Heights" book was really a must-read! Too bad only one artwork of yours was printed there... :(
