The black panel was created by stamping Hero Arts white unicorn ink onto a black shiny paper using a Hero Arts stamp from a few years back "Chalk Background". This was the second stamping, the first stamping delivers more white to the background. I thought the darker background complemented the image better.
Close up of the central image.
I colored the central image's hair in warm grays, while focusing on metal with the cool grays.
