Champagne Gold Chrome


I’ve never made a book with so much gold as this one. It’s a sight to behold.

The Red King

The all gold decoration is done over a frame that is true to proportions of old Balkan Manuscripts. However rather than a traditional tooling design, the idea for this book was for it to emanate a feeling of royalty. For this reason a shield is left blank in the center in order to be filled with the initials of it’s new owner.

 A true temple for your writings.

So this commission from @marschire was a bit different, because this was a commission to paint MY character. Marsh had requested a while back that I paint my revenant (Keres Enide) sometime, right after I’d recorded the thief process video. I didn’t record this unfortunately, but I’d restarted this picture a couple times lol. Treating my own character like a client’s was really challenging for me. But I’m glad she commissioned me to do so, I’d been wanting to paint Keres for a while. Although Marsh knows that I’ll paint one of her million alts if one is ever decided on ;) (Really though as a fellow altoholic I have the same issue of not knowing who I’d even want to be painted for a commission–even though I’ve really been wanting to get one done lol)

[mod note]

This has to be the largest and most complex display of Orientalist jewel- and enamelwork I’ve ever personally seen.
