The Sad Princess by nati The Sad Princess by nati
I love making up my own characters and I really enjoyed drawing this new girl :) I should probably draw her more often!
This is a soft pastels, golden ink and colored pencils piece on a special Canson paper. I love it, the paper has a special, rich texture and it was like drawing on a canvas! Nice effect, finally!

I love all of the rich colors here! It's too bad you can't see how metallic the gold ink is in this picture though.

Thank you! You're right, unfortunately when I scanned the illustration, many details were lost. It's very hard to scan metallic inks in the proper way :(

No problem but...can you get a good tattoo by using an illustration like this one? Line-art is not so clear....

she is beautiful and I did look at your originals but I didn't realize that you lived in Italy and the ones I really like I cant really afford right now but you never know I might be able to get one in the future because I really do like your style and I know the work you put into something like this but just a question how much do you think it would cost to ship one to Florida? Also two thumbs up on this one, great work!:) (Smile)

Thank you! Happy you liked this one!
Well, the pieces at the galleries are quite expensive - a gallery's commission is usually 40/50% of the piece - plus, you should consider the final price includes also both shipment and frames. As a matter of fact, you can only send framed pieces to a gallery.
I'm going to update soon my Etsy shop with new originals. Shipment oversea is usually 12/20 USD via International Registered Mail.
I also think to start taking commissions again through dA, maybe in a couple of weeks :)
