This scroll was my first collaboration with Eva Woderose.
Scroll assignment:Award of Arms
Recipient: Rozalin of Ruantallan
Calligraphy: By Eva Woderose
Words: By Alys Mackyntoich
Specs: Guache on pergamenata
Source: German fencing manual - http://digital.slub-dresden.de/werkansicht/dlf/7522/59/
This is also my first time painting on perg and going through the process of removing my hand oils from the material. I did the illumination first then handed off the finished (with my half) product to Eva for the calligraphy portion.
The big tweek on this was I tried to make one of the fencers slightly more feminine since the recipient is female and to make it more personal.
I don't have a picture of Eva's lovely calligraphy for this one, but she posted it somewhere. I'll update this post if I can track it down.
Big take away from this - mixing paint to the right consistency was still kind of an issue. The perg was very forgiving and kinda fun. :) This was also attempt #1 on math-ing out all the sizing from the original. I need more practice with it.
Edit: Found the completed scroll pic! I LOVE the "E".
