Scroll Blanks started

Been on sort of a kick now with the scroll blanks.  I have 14 more here which have been started.  I've inked in the outlines and they are all ready for paint.  Not sure if most people ink the outlines before or after they paint, but I wanted them outlined before paint so that I could more easily erase the pencil lines and not have them show through the paint.  All but a few are based on various period examples.  When I get more time I plan on better documenting each one.  When the illumination is done I'll post the original pic next to the finished item.  For now, here are the inked in blanks.
