Worked on the Tarot card Knight of Swords earlier this week.
Today I'll either do a second round of color on the drapery, or work on the candelabra.
Spent yesterday going over my list of symbols, book titles, dates, and a
phrase from a song I'm planning to include. I made a rough pencil
sketch of the composition and tried different combinations.
Book titles are pretty straightforward - I know which ones I want to
use, and which books I intend to pair them with. Playing around with the
yellow drapery is both more challenging and more fun. It's actually
patterned in red, and I plan to substitute Led Zeppelin references. For example, I
want to use the winged Apollo figure of the Swan Song logo in place of a
I found a few photo references on Google for the capital S on the Swan
Song stationary. I want to try placing it in repeating pattern where there is
actually sort of paisley design.
