Sketches for 2014, number 33 — Gothic eagle

Location: Tierra de Barros, Spain
This is my digitally-enhanced drawing of a 6th century eagle-shaped fibula, found in a Visigoth grave in Spain – although now held in the US.

I created the above image from this pencil sketch I made today:

To create the digital version, I applied an edge detection filter to the drawing, and then applied fills using muted colours.
