Filigree by Mary Layton

by Mary Layton

Prompt: Filigree wings
prompted by: Lorna (Comtessa), during Sketch Fest #48 (March, 2014)

Graphite on plain paper. I placed it on a background image I already had in Painter, so the image would 'pop' a bit - it was too faint, otherwise! I think I may use this as a concept sketch and do a finished version at some point - I would have liked to have made the wings even more elaborate.


Lorna (Comtessa) says: This is beautiful. I love the details of her wings and skirt! ~ Reply?

     Mary Layton replied to this: Thank you :)

Mayumi Ogihara says: Beautiful! Background image did make your sketch pop. Did you create this background? Love the muted colours ♡ ~ Reply?

     Mary Layton replied to this: Thanks, Mayumi! I created the background in Painter - I'd meant for it to be a suggestion of a forest for another painting, but kept the background saved as a separate file to use again if needed! :)
