The other day I was practicing big cats, and as I drew the stripes Baroque/Rococo inspired markings happened! The original looks much better, because iridescent paints never scan well. There's not much you can do to fix that in Photoshop. This was painted in watercolor, acrylic and I used hematite ore paint on the stripes (it glitters beautifully and is textured, sand papery to the touch) and interference gold paints.
The interference gold flashes when you look at the painting at different angles. Was a fun little project! I love making tiny art
