Gustave Dore Collage Sheet

I love Gustave Dore,,,,,was a French artist, engraver, illustrator and sculptor. Doré worked primarily with wood engraving and steel engraving. I love their Black and White linearts,,,,so I designed a SPECIAL TIBUTE TO HER WORK,,,,,,HERE IS MY GUSTAVE DORE COLLAGE SHEETS:
But first take a look to the amazing ATC CARDS that Dorcas from my CT made using this Collection..

Fromn Dorcas Blog:

OK, guys! Something a little different for you today. You all know how I love my bright cheerful colors ;well here's the other side of me. :-) (Scary, huh? lol)Gustav Dore, you gotta love the raw emotion he evokes in his art (or did. He's dead now). I just love his art. It is a little dark but like i said, gutsy.
Below is his Little Red Riding Hood. I'm sorry, but if that doesn't make a little kid sleep well, there's something wrong with them! lol.
Nice Doggie, Nice Doggie

The images are mostly black and white with gold veining. But if you go over some of the details with Prismacolors, the pictures just pop. Notice the greenery and blue sky below.

And wonderful Puss In Boots! Can anyone ever have too much Puss In Boots?
He's Da Man, right there!

The rocky cliffs below I added some white/grey pencil to and gave it some more dimention. Couple that with some chatruesse and blue in the water and you can see how much fun you can have with these images.

I tore and distressed the images and used my odds and ends to collage them. Also added a gold cord in different patterns to tie in the gold veining in the clip art.
Below you see the sheet as it comes through Nicecranes shop.
have a poke around, he has some pretty cool stuff. Release the inner artist :-)
