No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.

practicing environments, phew… =3= also testing out the general style/process I wanna use for my comic, a sorta cels-on-painted-backgrounds look. obvs not every background can have nearly as much time and effort put into it, but at least for establishing shots this is definitely what I’m aiming for!
