IF: Intricate


I have always loved drawing ornate decorative swirls and leaves. I haven't drawn any of these for the longest time. The last time I remember doing this, I was working on a coat of arms in one of my first art classes in college....years ago. And it wouldn't be my art without some random little bizarre characters. I particularly like the one leaping in the center of the big circle.

@ Linda,

My banner is a combination of colored pencil and watercolor. the lettering was added digitally. I really need to post a side link to my temporary web gallery so people can see more then just my sketches!
