|Dragon's Bowle for Vrank von Attendorn - for achieving a medieval atmosphere at events|
My first try at drawing and painting medieval faces started with the backlog assignment of Vrank von Attendorn's Dragon's Bowle. As I know Vrank's persona is from the 13th century, I thought immediatly of the Codex Mannesse as the Original to his Dragon's Bowle scroll. His achievements ranged from coin making, fire starting to making and using a sling and teaching others in it. So that's what I wanted to show in his scroll. As the Codex Mannesse has one image per page, I decided on one text page and 4 image pages. In the following pictures you will see the process of each image from the drawing, gilding, painting and shading to the finished page.
Material: Pergamenata (paper), sugar gesso and gold leaf, gouach paint
