But you probably already knew that.  I've started on a couple of scrolls.

The first is the archery champion scroll for Bryn Gwlad's baronial.  It's not too fancy schmancy, but I like it!

It's based on this style of ornamentation:

This is what the inked version looks like.  I'm waiting to find out what the text of the award will be, so that I can design a capital, though...

The second scroll I've started is for a friend's Award of Arms:

It's drawn off these two scrolls, almost copied, actually.  I suck at drawing animals right now, so, I borrowed from the Capodilista Codex to find a female knight.  (And no, she's not a knight, but I wanted a woman on horseback and this came up.  Hope I don't piss anyone off....)

The second one I took inspiration from just had a gorgeous border, and I loved the diamonds.

So, I kinda rolled them up together and ended up with this:

Sorry about the size difference!

Anyway, those are the diamonds on the border, with a quarter for scale.

If you'll excuse me, I have to go crazy now.

After I post this, though, I have to go clean up the kitchen.  Again.

Anyway, here's the scroll I've been working on for friends of ours.  I know the lady of this house will be at the event, but I didn't before I started making it, so I hope they still enjoy the invitation.

In case...

what I could be good at in the SCA.

This is the general invite for the Laurels Prize Tourney.  It's pretty plain, but I think it looks good.

This is the design sketch for a personalized invite.  The folx that it's going out to are some of my favorite peoples in the SCA and I miss them.  I don't think he'll be able to come, and I don't know if she will, but I wanted them to know they're thought about and missed.  He is a Lion of Ansteorra and the tower comes from her device, so we'll see how it turns out.

Well, the scroll is in Oklahoma by now, and I'm biting my nails to the quick with nerves.

This is the final product.  I can see almost nothing but what's wrong with it, but for a first effort, I'm happy.  I need to work on smoothing out my color, a LOT.

That's all the progress for tonight.  I was thinking of starting in on the green, but I need time to mix the color right and time to paint it all once I get the color correct.

Well, it's getting closer!  Here's the start of the calligraphy on the original.  Many, many thanks to [ profile] cenliamgordon for the calligraphy work!

Sorry it's sideways!

So, what have I been doing in my spare time?  Besides wishing some Dallas peeps could go pick this up for me and hang on to it until I can get up there next weekend??

Well, working on a scroll.  Our Stronghold is holding our first event in August, and so, I decided we needed to do invites.  Personally, I blame [ profile] zaphod_groupie , because our group got an invite to an event she was doing, and well...that kinda made me all keen on doing it too!

Well, because I am insano in the braino, I decided to take on the idea of making this invite.

I've done...three...scrolls. I think.

So, what else to do but go all out?  This is not inked yet, but it'll give you an idea.

So I don't eat your friends page... )
