I started out with a brown watercolor texture which was scanned in, then I took a B/W pencil sketch and put it over the watercolor layer as a multiply layer. Then I flattened the layers and burned and screened in the darks and lights (so I wouldn't totaly paint over the texture). Then I put a color layer over the whole thing and put in the colors, and then touched it up with some opaque painting.

You know, I wasn't going for that, and I didn't know that artists name, but I looked him up and went "oh yeah, that guy" Tongue I have a horrible memory for names.

Pretty! The texture looks just like an edmund dulac... which is what you were trying to do right? I can't even quite figure out how to do that with watercolor.

This is beautiful, the gold turned out really well; it has a very lovely colour and texture.

Art at its best.
