Description:

Combine my vision with yours by requesting a custom version. Comment on a design or by private message to the sef account.


This design ⇑ is the roiling coils of 3 celtic-styled dragons flying out of a stone-walled pit. In other words: "... and out of the pits of Angband there issued the winged dragons ...". The main unit is hand-drawn with a lot of stippling and cross-hatching and has then been repeated on a hexagon background. Currently displaying a plain black and white version. Other colours, sizes and orientations are available on request and you can even ask for a combination of several designs together.

sef says: I tested this one at 2/3 size (225 dpi) and the cross-hatching fill was still clear. So it could be reduced just a little further without losing the white gaps but probably not as far as you'd want, Victoria. I've only got as far as scanning the pre-shaded version. Not cleaning it up properly for colour fills yet. There's never enough time to do everything!

sef says: I suddenly had a recollection that I'd kept a pre-shading version at the time I did this. So I went rummaging for it and found it - not bad record-keeping from 30 years ago (and only my normal levels of senility). So I've scanned that too now and may eventually get around to cleaning it up and tinting it.<br><br>I never know what size people want things, though. Whereas, you say this one should be smaller, someone else just had me enlarge another design to a huge size for a dress. I tend to be doing things at a middling sort of size for myself.

sef says: I might try that if I get around to doing a cleaner (and therefore properly reducible) version from the original pen and ink work. I've reduced it just a little bit for proofing so that I can fit a whole unit onto a swatch but that may already cause the black lines to run into each other.

sef says: I think I'd have to redraw it to make it a shrinkable dot design. The cross-hatching and stippling is far too close to work with the degree of spread of printed ink on fabric. All the small white-space gaps would essentially disappear.

victori...

victorialasher says: wonderful detail. I wonder if it would lose too much detail if it were made small enough to use as a "dot" design, for a dress

sef says: Whereas I thought it might slide beneath most people's notice, being black and white rather than brightly coloured.
