I've just painted my very first couple of KaKAO's - Kartenkunst, Auflagen und Originale - or better ATC's - Artist Trading Cards - I prefer the German name though.:D
They've been around for ages and I always quite enjoyed looking at them but never really knew what they're all about.^-^ I knew that they would be traditional painted images on small sized cards, but I never though they might be THAT small! D:< I mean 2,5 x 3,5 inches is ridiculously tiny!!! It definitely takes much patience and attention to create a nice one and it took me way longer than I would have imagined.... ._."
Anyway, I love the fact that they're created to get exchanged against cards by other artists and I definately want to get a huge collection of them!*-* So I'd better get started now to produce some I can trade at the Connichi in September. I'm really looking forward to it.<3
