This started on pale grey textured paper with coloured pencils and metalic pencils. The design is partly traditional celtic and part invented. The ornamentation has been taken from several traditional sources. Once I was happy with the piece, I scanned it into PS where I used the dodge and burn tools to give it more shape: posterized it to give it more contrast: saturated it to give it more punch and layered in the background.
I think it is one of my best works recently and hope you like it too!
