I tried leafing/gilding for the first time, after being encouraged by Eeva Nukinen. It really is easy - think the key to success is really be able to control and visualize where the leaf will go while applying the medium. I tested this out on a quick sketch rather than something more precious, which made it easier to just let go and play with it.
I picked up the trades of the new Midnighter series based on reviews - a lot of human characterization to go with the super heroic stuff. Here's yesterday's warm-up pencil and cool down marker sketching - today, maybe Apollo, or else Midnighter in his Batman underwear...

I invite you to live vicariously, or get tempted into dropping your own cash, as I play around with shiny objects picked up or ordered in my travels
