The Crown, Sommarnatt

My sight is still not 100% but good enough for some coloring if I don’t get carried away and spend hours on it, the resulting head ache is not worth it.

Anyway, next up, the Crown from Sommarnatt:

Done with Faber-Castell Polychromos, background black Prismacolor Premier and white dots with my trusty Signo Uniball white gel pen.

Someone asked me recently about black backgrounds. I tend to do mine with pencils because I just like the slightly uneven look of it. If you want a solid mass of black, a marker would do better, takes less elbow grease as well.
I feared the cut gems on this one bad. I’ve never done cut gems. Not 100% happy with them but much better then I feared they’d be.
Next, the long awaited girl in Sommarnatt, I can’t even begin to tell you how long I’ve wanted to do that one 🙂 Yay!

  1. Oh Iris! That is just GORGEOUS! LOVE the jewels! Still waiting for my pen to arrive. It is taking forever! Ordered it from Simon Says Stamp! in the USA. Did you use the same pen to do the little star highlights as you use to make your dots?
