Christmas Samurai (elf thing) Redux
As promised, here's the "final" of the Samurai Elf. Above, is the internet sized version of the digital final for the painting that was then printed on the canvas which leads to the below...
...to the scanned version (the actual was much more saturated and detailed...sigh) of the final final. Despite what the good person at the art shop told me, I should have gotten a clear fixer to apply to the print before the paint, but alas, I didn't, and now I know better. Tricky stuff, this printable canvas.
For completeness's sake, here's a photo of the painting mounted. I swear, it took me longer to cut out and build the mounting than it did to paint the silly thing. Please forgive the fish bowling of the image. There's a good reason I didn't become a photographer... :)
