Default A few new attempts

Been working on my scrolls using coins as canvas. Still a bit challenged by shading and leaf elements (I aim to add a tad complexity, but not quite where I want to be). Finally started to figure out how to use tiny flats to help with background removal.

Hi JackJellies
That is good work I see especially the coin with the star border.There is room for improvement but if you carry on like this it bound to get better anyways.Keep it up.
All the Best

SEngraver, I think I see what your talking about "room for improvement" but I was hoping you give some detailed feedback. Are you talking about the line weight in the shading and things like that? I'm no where near as good as Jack Jellies but hope to get this good in a year or two but in the mean time I want to learn as much as possible. Thank you.

all 3 are very nice but especially the first one on the left. The shading and border is nicely done on a small canvas. Always inspiring to come here and see others work. Thanks for sharing. My old eyes appreciate seeing others success working on very small canvas.
