Fools Gold by Charlie-Bowater Fools Gold by Charlie-Bowater
An Illustration that I've slowly been working on during my lunch breaks. I don't normally take my time quite this much, but it was really enjoyable!

This is available as a hand signed and numbered, limited edition print run in my Etsy shop; [link]

Adobe Photoshop CS5, CS6 & Wacom Intuos 5.

This reminds me so much of the work of Yoaan Lossel. who does charcoal and gold leaf paintings in tradiitonal media. I wonder if you're inspired by her work here? Regardless i think the voice of your own expertise shows through in this digital masterpeice. Very Beautiful
