@tonyrumiko saved my academic career by sending me a clip from im1 for me to analyse so here is a sparkly gold tony as thanks,,,,it is the first thing i have drawn in many days pls forgive the wonkiness
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.
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)
Gustav Klimt’s painting The Kiss. One of my favourite pieces of art. Hiding my eyegasm was difficult. #gustavklimt #gustavklimtthekiss #thekiss #art #painting #museum #belvederepalace #gold #austria #vienna #trip #adventure (at Belvedere Palace,Vienna,Austria)
