Medieval Stained Glass

Hahaha, I'm totally supposed to be working now...

... buuut I've been listening to the Elizabeth: The Golden Age Soundtrack all afternoon and then suddenly this pops into my head and I had to do it. An old sketch, but I've tried playng around with textures to make a stained glass effect.

Just a quick experiment, but it killed some time in the midst of a very boring essay!! :D

Textures are from #resurgere and patterns are from Pixels & Ice Cream.

Hi! You said you wouldn't complain if someone try you drawing in stained glass... so I did! :) I made some little modifications, but I have to say I love the result. I am new in stained glass.

a couple shapes should be changed, an you'd have to do an overlay for the necklace and buttons, but otherwise it is a viable pattern!

That's cool, I don't really know nything about the actual process of making stained glass pieces, I have just seen a lot in old churches and houses and kind of woked from memory. :)

the rules- no long pointy pieces- they like to shatter. no inner angles, glass doesn't work that way, and the same with inner curves. the hands would need to be changed, and one sleeve piece, but I could make that.

I really like your use of textures--it is never unnescessary. ^^

Thankyou, that's really good to hear because I am still learning how to use them, so it's nice to do experiments like this one! :)

I absolutely love the Elizabeth: The Golden Age Soundtrack, it's so great. Again, as always, awesome work. You've really captured the style of stained glass but gave it more life.

Thankyou, I'm glad you liked the stained glass effect, as it's a new style I've never tried before and it's always nice when something works unexpectedly. :)

I :heart: that soundtrack, anything by Craig Arnstrong is sure to be good, but that is definitely one of his best imho!
