Frontispiece Detail

This initially started out as a design for the “good book rescue” post. I did a thumbnail, a slightly more detailed sketch, the first book cover, and liked it so much, I decided to continue to improve it for the “paper back to hardcover” project.

I cut a piece from a Chipotle bag. I like the brown color of the paper and it’s thickness lends itself to collage work on covers when I’m layering. The initial drawing was in pencil with slightly send out Indian ink and silver paint for the decorative parts. Prisma color pencils that is the paint colors that gave it a nice Jewel-like pop.
