Golden Echelon by EmanuelMardsjo Golden Echelon by EmanuelMardsjo
It was neither her wits nor intellect that brought her to the Golden Echelon, but her complexion and beauty. They tell her she's powerful and influential to hide the fact that she's considered part of the prize bundle that comes with the throne.

My main objective was to draw a golden diva, but as it turned out, her alone in the drawing got a little boring to look at. So I gave her a pet with a golden cap :D Speaking of the gold, it was total improvisation! I wanted a polished and realistic look to it, which was a real challange for me! :o Metal is mean. But in the end I can only say I'm well over satisfied with it.

The best part of the process was drawing the Leopard and creating the spot pattern :D I should paint animals more often :o Anyway, hope you like it as much as I do! Cheers wayyo

You know, out of all your recent pieces, it's the least commented on that I like the most. It's very beautiful in it's simplicity.

This looks really good, I like the story part in the description (is it from a book/movie/game? Because it sounds interesting). Also, I think you did a great job with the metal-texture, it looks very realistic :)
