Sneaky Peek 5 by Himmapaan Sneaky Peek 5 by Himmapaan
Another peek from the same book as the glimpses below. Again, this is a photograph of part of the original artwork, painted in ink and gouache, with a penny for scale.

Coincidentally enough, I received my first advanced copy of this (together with two copies of the French edition) at the same time as Sense and Sensibility. We are in a different world yet again. You get your money's worth journeying with Himmapaan, you know. ;)





This book will be best seen in person because of its format (in brief, each spread works like a three-dimensional theatre scene, with three layers in each), so there will be some limitations in showing the full pieces of artwork (which I will once the book becomes available).

How the hell did you paint something so tiny so beautifully!?

I'm curious. Do you paint the black silhouette first, and then apply the colored details over top? And... do you do the motifs freehand? ;p

Yes, yes, and yes. :D

The silhouettes are in ink, and the colour and gold are gouache.

Ooh, not at all. Before I actually get to that stage, there is a huge amount of planning. I also have good references for all the ornamentation which get adapted, simplified or embroidered as necessary when I come to painting it.

But your execution is magnificent. ;)

I think I would surely fudge it up somehow. :(

You are insane - you know that, right?! That detail just makes my eyes bleed from looking at it, much less imagine how it can be painted!
