An ink 'seahorse' done in a "da Vinci notebook" annotated style, on burned poster paper. An underwater flight of whimsy.
The real deal ,very authentic looking document and the subject is equally convincing, great job Gwynn....
I'm really digging this piece, Gwynn! Great technique and idea, truly superb!
I highly recommend (carefully!) burning works -- cathartic perhaps? Getting the sucker back for putting cramps in the hand?
Coming from you, that makes me want to fire up the stove and burn all my works! ;D
Thanks mate! Really appreciate it.
Tre' cool! I love the burnt edges....nice work....
My favorite of your images. Really beautifully aged perfection.
as I've mentioned to you on another site quite recently, I really love your work. The details of this creature's body's textures are fabulous. I also love the cheekbones. This is really great. Unique.
I'm guessing something to do with heresy. It's always heresy.
Variety is the spice of life!
Love that old world codex feel. I want to know the story behind it being burned at the edges!
the detail on that sea horse is superb.I admire your skill in cross hatching.
this is just great! the whole attitude of it is so... complete... if you know what i mean:)concept taken to the ultimate level. very very cool.
This has the feeling of an ancient naturalist documenting his or her fantastic discovery as carefully as possible. And it's just lovely, too! You work in a remarkable variety of artistic styles. I'm impressed!
Thank you Vera! I always preferred scorching to tea-soaking. Must be the pyromaniac in me.
You're my kind of people, Anna!
That's a veyr original and interesting way of presenting. A lovely peice of art! What struck me as funny, is that I immediately found myself remeniscing on how me and my friend used to draw treasure maps, and burn the edges,wrinkle, water stain them, making them look worn and anchient. Ahh, brought some good memories.
I just lone this work! The aged tone looks very realistic to me.
very interesting looks like a page from an ancient encyclopedia on mythology or something..... great work.
