compass and rose by Kir Talmage

compass and rose
by Kir Talmage

Prompt: The compass rose blooms with unexplored directions
prompted by: mikka, during Sketch Fest #38 (June, 2013)

This took me just about the hour, actually. Is it finished? I feel like there ought to be a stem but if it extends past the box, it wouldn't work... *puzzled*. It's also not what I *thought* of when I started sketching but I'm not sure how to do what I'm thinking (with maps and layers...a collage maybe...) Pencil on 65lb. Canson sketch paper. Made the upload grayscale to compensate for funny lighting in my office late at night...


mikka says: Oh, very nifty! I like all the little details around the compass edge. Thank you. :) ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: Thank you ! I've still got a lot to learn about lighting, but th engraving was fun to play with.

Mayumi Ogihara says: Very nice pencil work! ~ Reply?

     Kir Talmage replied to this: Thank you!
