I have been working on “Crowned” for quite some time. I’m not sure I really like this scan: the colors appear slightly washed out. This is what happened after I bought a set of “Ultra Thin” sharpies. I also used Straedler grey pens for the effects on the buildings and some new Sharpie highlighters for the ultra-colors on pink and yellow. (It’s hard to tell in the scan.) I’d welcome critiques on this piece since I incorporated a lot of new ideas, namely some patterns I got from a “Historical” pattern book. I am particularly interested in this idea of a crown growing out of someone’s head. This grew from that idea, and it is the second time I have tried to portray it.
