This drawing had a large amount of gold leafing to be done so I thought I would make a time-lapse video demonstrating how it is done. With a short cameo from a little someone near the end.

Step 0: The drawing (not pictured)
Step 1: Painting on the Glue
Step 2: Applying the gold Leaf
Step 3: Brushing away excess gold
Step 4: Clean-up

Another piece that took a very long time to complete. I always tell myself I'm going to work smaller, and then in the planning stage the drawing gets bigger and bigger and the final product takes me weeks to finish. The result in this one is great though, I don't think it would have been as good if it were half the size.

Still slowly progressing. Now I have all the non-fun stuff like background to work through. If only I could just fill the canvas with faces, that painting would keep my interest from start to finish.

Progress is slow when you redraw the background in 4 different ways. I still have many more hours of work to put into this piece.

The basic block-ins of both portraits are done. I still have many more hours left on this one.
