Whew, finally done!
The amount of time I spent way too last night just on post-processing the sections of scanned gold leaf alone is ABSURD. The angle the scanner light hits it at pretty much does horrifying things to it. So, photos to show how pretty it is in person!
Graphite, watercolor, colored pencil, and 23K gold leaf on Strathmore illustration board. Please fullview! The auto-resize the tumblr dashboard does kinda kills it.
