Helheim Dagger in Knapped Steel – Part 7

Today I’m finishing up the engraving on the Hel side of the dagger.  Above, I’ve removed the background, using what I call a “scribble” texture for the cloth of her robe, and I’ve used a tiny four-sided point to stipple the non-cloth areas (see around her dead eye, and between her ribs, as well as the little Celtic cartouche at the bottom).

Here, I’ve finished up the shading, and inked in the design.  Hel has really popped into being now!

Next, I’ve got to make lathe turn a tiny moose antler peg for her dead eye.  Getting close to finishing!

Thanks for Looking!
