The fourth (+ fifth) and final picture of >Epistula non erubescit<. Originally it was drawn with alcohol-based markers on A2 and later remade completely, as a digital artwork. (The fifth was not made traditionally, but imediatly translated as a digital artwork)
Packed with details and a total of 378 layers it has to be the most time consuming piece of art I've ever drawn. On the first look, many find it to be rather simple, but when inspected closer the details just come flocking in. I won't list them here, as it would be a boring read. What I will list instead are the details changing between the fourth (dusk) and the fifth (dawn) picture.
Most prominent is the third eye of Andromache, being either open or closed. When open, the environment is much darker and more cozy with wild light elements, such as the halo's of the hops or the rainbow, coming through the windows. When closed, her eyes are slightly open, as if she was just waking up, and the light elements from before vanish, to make room for a woozy cloud of young sunlight, again, coming through the windows and fairy lights shimmering across the scenery.
Regarding the windows, the clouds outside can be seen moving as well.
The light coming into the room also slightly changes perspective and tone.
The blanket thrown across the windowsill is hit by the wind and fluttering towards the center of the room.
The Akebias are first depicted as fully bloomed, but when switching between sights are actually still only buds.
And last but not least her hip-halo is turning between pictures.
All this is supposed to show her change of sight and believes, achieved throughout the pictures from before. The picture itself thus is the name-giver of the picture row itself. I chose this name, as I wanted to translate love and naive behavior into rational thoughts and acts.
