Wow, I’m so glad I decided to keep going with this piece! And I am so excited to start playing with shadow and depth going forward.
The paper I used for the shadows – the gold horses on black – is one I got a while ago and have been waiting for the right moment to use. I wasn’t sure how it would work with the other golds in the piece, and you can see I ended up changing her hair color because the old hair blended in too well. But yeah, I’m super pleased with the result! I also think just the shadow part on it’s own is cool.
