Lady Amalthea ACEO by Katerina-Art Lady Amalthea ACEO by Katerina-Art
Lady Amalthea - Commission
ACEO size 2.5 x 3.5
Pencil/white charcoal

Recent aceo commission i finished of
Lady Amalthea from the fantasy animated movie
"The Last Unicorn"
[link]

Unicorn / Lady Amalthea, learns she is the "last unicorn" who, in her search for the other unicorns,
is transformed into a woman and learns about regret and love.

First time i did aceo in this style of art, years ago i enjoyed drawing Disney's Ariel ( the little mermaid ) but haven't done anything in anime/manga style and it was fun to draw, such sweet animated character, i always found the ending of the last unicorn bittersweet.
My client liked the look i gave my aceo mermaid sketch card "Cordelia" and did something similar with flowy dreamy,sad look, hope you enjoy it :heart:

Yay! I love her, one of my favorite cartoon characters ever. That movie is frightening, but one of the best. Beautiful rendition of her!

It's nice to step out of your comfort zone once in a while. I've been doing lots of sketching including some silly cartoon characters, and it's fun. :laughing:

OMG OMG OMG!!! I recognized her right away!! The Last Unicorn is my FAVE animated movie!! You did such an amazing job capturing the confused "unicorn-stuck-in-a-woman's-body" expression!! :) Do Schmendrick (sp?) next!! XD

so glad she is recognizable, i dont do much art in this style and loved doing something different :)
Schmendrick was the magician should make such interesting character to illustrate :)

I can't wait to see your magician!! :glomp: Was it refreshing working outside of your natural style a bit? I still feel like I am trying to iron out a style...seems like everything I do is a little different in style (but I can recognize a certain character of line that I know as my own).

I feel like an art "baby" sometimes!! XD I am only just starting to totter around and I have a looong way to go to maturity!

you're doing wonderful :clap:
it was definitely a nice change doing something different
and it was fun illustrating it,anime/manga style of art is something
i wanted to try for a while, like you i like different
style of arts, with my work i go back and forth from fantasy stuff to portrait
work, i think an artist can illustrate a lot of different themes in their style :)

thank you for the encouragement! :) I am learning to be happy with the fact that I am simply doing something; putting pressure on myself to be cohesive, or perfect, or commercially successful is something I am moving away from (slowly but surely) because I end up just stalling. I have a couple sketches that may or may not become worthy of finishing, and I have a couple ideas in my head that want out...I will just keep on keepin' on! :)

Thanks again...you rawk!! :glomp:
