This is the final illustration derived from the 3(+1) ink drawings. Hopefully, the images/scans do it justice, since capturing gold leaf on photo/video has been proven impossible, especially when your best recording device is a GoPro. Instead of grinding Ash and failing more necks, I decided to be productive and invest 84 hrs elsewhere... Several nights of sleep were lost over it, especially as I was edging towards the end of it since watercolor and gold are as mistake-friendly as forgetting to put on your Crons and every next line's failure meant losing dozens of hours of work.

Love the first rendition!! 

Do you mean the drawing for this one? Or the first drawing that I do?

I'll be honest, some 'flow' is lost from the brush pen to clean lines .. but thats just something for me to build upon more :)

That was exactly my drive, from pigment choice to composition, to limited perspective etc...some Renaissance meets Mucha. Even the occult-o-religious nature of it is on purpose, this one celebrating scientific equations for force, gravity, acceleration, attraction & repulsion.

It turned out really cool! It's something you'd be proud to hang on the wall in a prominent place!

I love how the Pandemonium frame emphasises the magic/fantasy dimension of it!

How did you go about creating the golden geometry? Did you use some kind of a ‘stamp’?

Yup, this cant measure to the painting that is held within that frame though :)

No stamps, though it would've been nice to have the equipment to do that. I pre-designed the frames in Illustrator (visible on the other 4 pieces) and then picked one to go with and re-did it by hand with a ruler and a compass (pencil>eraser>gold>repeat x~100), and improved some things here and there.

I didn't record that part of the process since it was stressful enough to do it over a completed painting, let alone mess with the recording equipment... Especially since I already had 4 hrs of footage to sift through for the drawings (which is sped up 10~ish times)...
