As a scribe let me put it this way,It is hard enough to draw a simple animal
figure(like a head of one,or an Eagle displayed Or) but to draw a unicorn 3
inches tall is a headache to paint. Specially if its Or and you want it
goldleaf.(Goldleafing designs is challegening enough) As for gold leafing
around detail lines your looking at tedious work.

Sorry for sounding nasty,

PS anyone who needs a device drawn find me,the guy in the green and gold
tunics from marinus.
