Saloon Shelf

 This was done for a client, but the client opted not to use it. Unfortunate? sure, but hey, i get to show you, and 'twas a fun project to work on. I both love and loathe the research part of starting a project, but loathe only because I tend to spend a good deal of time making sure I get enough reference to be overly satisfied of my own knowledge. The client wanted a shelf image that had a rustic/ country deco feel, something that would go well with other old, antique- style deco designs, so I made sure to keep some of it fairly loose, such as the textures and color modeling..
