Manuscript 3 - the goldfish by Wainyman Manuscript 3 - the goldfish by Wainyman
The latest memory manuscript. This one is based on someone else's memory, and simply illustrated. Same processes, media and dimensions as the previous two images.

Unusual photo-like realism for the illustration, but it works really well. Nice job!

what a wonderful idea. the art nerd in me really appreciates the level of detail in both the manuscript and the fish and the history nerd in me squees your interpretation of traditional manuscripts. excellent work!

It's a painting done in watercolour and gouache (like poster paint), a border drawn in ink and painted in gouache, then scanned into the computer and put together in Photoshop with the text and positioned over a page scanned from an antique book. It's a bit of cheating, really! Thanks for stopping by.

Hi there! I'm afraid to tell you - although it might be a good thing from your point of view - that it's all a bit ... fake.

I used gouache for the images and border, gold enamel paint for the gilding (you can get it from model shops and DIY stores), and it was drawn in pencil onto a sheet of stretched watercolour paper, and then painted. The outlines of the frame were added with brown ink, and then it was scanned and merged on Photoshop with an image of a blank sheet of antique paper. The lettering was added at that stage too.

Depending on whether you'll use the original pages or if you want to digitally tweak them, you could lay a light brown watercolour wash over the paper before starting to make it look old, or even stain it with tea (which is what I tried originally, it does work) and then rough it up a bit around the edges. The lettering could of course be added by hand, I only did it on the PC to save time.

Hope that's of help, if I can be of any help please let me know. Good luck with your designs, I've love to see them when you've done.

Hehe, it is a bit. The memory itself is cuter than the painting, though!
