994 - Background In Blue Satin

In the television of my childhood, when they wanted to inject some class into the show, the TV folks would mount their prop in a satin background.  Think of a fairytale storybook or a title card, something like that.  Sometimes the satin would be real, and sometimes it was hand-painted.  Here's an example on JSVB, take a look at JSVB Post #900 by clicking here. 

I've always wanted to do something like that, since it resonates with my earliest years.  It's taken me a while to learn to render cloth, though.  My iconography lessons have helped, and practice seems to boost my skill a little as well.

This piece isn't complete since the bits in the middle are missing.  I'll get around to that after some sleep.
