more medallions

The smaller ones are 4" in diameter, the larger ones are 5.5" at the widest point. (the dog is one of the larger ones)

man, these are just so neat. are you using some kind of wood-stain?

michelle said...

Yes, I do the drawing in ink and then color it with various shades of stain.

Excellent, more work! I'm really diggin' the one that looks a bit like a griffin, I also like the hat and face of the calligrapher though.

There's a certain amount of spacial tension in some of them that I'm drawn to, especially the griffin and the greek strangler, more so than the others which appear more carefully framed.

*wanders off to be mildly productive*

Thanks Chris, I can see what you mean about the framing, I'll keep that in mind.

And "The Greek Strangler" is probably the most awesome thing I've heard today. Hahaha
Sounds like a wrestler, or a villain from a detective radio show in the 30's.
