The Offering

Hello, dear blogosphere friends.  I have been away attending to some freelance work for the past couple of months.  I don't have much to report on that, as it's still in the developmental phase, but things have calmed down on that front so I'm returning to my little blog for a bit.

I do have some independent new work to share.  My latest embossing, "The Offering"

From Philotechnical
I'm still trying to pinpoint what causes some areas to stand out more than others despite using what feels like the same amount of pressure.  For example, compare the torso to the horse body below: the horse's hooves popped out wonderfully. Though I love the detail and delicacy of the human torso, I would like him to be as prominent as the horse body.

I was very pleased with the delicacy of his wings and feathers overall.  A lot of experimenting went into the final effect.

That's all for today!  Have a lovely weekend!
