... this image was initially St. Peter of Verona, but I took the big knife out of his head and it looked more like Dominic to me, so I went with it. I tried using crayons for the black so the fabric folding detail would still be visible, as opposed to inking in the entire piece of cloth of solid black.
I loathe the end result. I'm going to leave the crayons where they belong, with my son's back-to-school supplies.
I do like the columns; however, and have decided to carry that theme on the borders of future holy cards and greeting cards. It looks more masculine than flowers and I can get as ornate or plain as I like.
