Well, I thought I was going to be able to finish this project before Christmas but that doesn’t look very likely now. Somebody asked me to do a standalone (as opposed to tile-able), digital version of my Holy Face design. Here, below, is the work-in-progress. I’ve adapted the border from my Tree of Life design. The spiral background will be modified so that it fits the new border and joins with it at top and bottom. (You’ll see what I mean when I’m finished.) I’m experimenting with the colours. Believe it or not, the colour scheme below is based on the colour scheme on a halo in the Book of Kells. It looks very carnival to me. I had a lot of trouble adding colour and shading to the face without straying off a very fine line between bad manga and bad realism. It might still need some tweaking. I’ve taken the opportunity to make the central trinity spiral a bit more circular. My pencilled spiral was quite triangular.
