I was pleasantly surprised with how well this piece came out, given that symmetry isn’t typically my strongest suit. One thing that’s not readily apparent in the picture is the reflectivity of the Gelly Roll Stardust ink, which flickers like glitter as the viewer moves from one perspective to another. The subject matter was inspired by the aptly named Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, which happened to be on TV recently. (Note that this isn’t the carpenter’s cup. Heh.)
This is one of my older pieces, but it’s still one of my favorites. I’m very pleased with how the color balance came out, and the dark blue curves from the Glaze pen really set off the shapes made with Metallic and Stardust beautifully. It was a lot of work, but well worth the effort.
I really enjoyed working on this piece, and I’m satisfied with how it came out. I incorporated some tesselations around a square theme, and also referenced the terrible slaughter of Cecil the lion, shown here strolling across the grasslands of Zimbabwe. I added a few more details and nuances than usual, while trying not to make it look too dense, and I think I succeeded.
