Leather Love for the Bees by Charlie Galvin
Prompt: For the love of bees
prompted by: Miss Ava, during Sketch Fest #90 (August 2017)
This artist has posted at least one finished version of this piece!
I was working on some new designs for purses this weekend. I thought some bee love would be perfect. The leather hasn't been dyed/painted yet. But the tooling took about an hour.
Afke says: Yay, more new materials used on SF. :D This looks promising! ~ Reply?
replied to this: Thank you!
mikka says: Ooooh! Please post a picture of the finished version? And what Afke said. :) Do you sketch pieces like this before you do the tooling, or are you working directly on the leather? ~ Reply?
replied to this: Typically I'll sketch on vellum, then trace it on the leather. After that I go in with a knife and beveling tools. I've played with a couple straight to leather sketches. I need more practice to make that effective.
