"Illustrated manuscript" style moths page

The finished ink version (Copic multiliners on 260gm textured paper):

And some progress on the colouring;

The moths are a variety of Daler Rowney pearlescent inks and are very very shiny, the black is pearlescent black (which doesn’t show up on camera AT ALL but when it catches the light it has a subtle bronze-blue shimmer), the gold is an Edding fineliner and the acanthus-type swirls are Faber Castell Pitt pens which use India ink.

I haven’t finished it yet - still have the outer border to add colour to.
