This looks as if it were embroidered with rich fabrics upon some glorious tapestry. Also, the flames are somewhat reminiscient of medieval illustrations (which fascinate me with their not-so-traditional depiction of things with unordinary depictions of depth).

You have such a charming style, I really love it! Great work with color too. May I ask what medium you used to color it?

:iconangelarizza:
AngelaRizza Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Sure! The line work and some rendering is done with a brush and ink and black watercolor. Then the color and more texture is added in Photoshop CS3.
