Carved and currently tooling on 4-5oz leather.
Alrighty! I got permission from the amazingly talented
to carve their Piece: [link]
(go look at it, it's stunning.)
And, yes, I deviated.
All antiqued now. It went nicely into all of my lines. I had an issue with the background - normally, antique also goes into those areas, but I used a spray seal to protect my washes (hey - it worked) and it gathered in those areas so, alas. Had I been smart, I would have colored those in by hand with an all-in-one or dye.
Yanno, once this is done, I think that I shall redo it and modify the design some more.
I like the antiqued, beat-up look, though. Perfect for a sketchbook cover, nice and rugged! <3
