An entry for the weekly challenge. Don't try to read that, it's gibberish.

-Edited some things: dithering on the candle glow, added quill, added matchbox, edited wood grain, revised palette slightly.

I really like that one! The metallic ink bottle is astoundingly convincing!

The fixed elements make it look even better now. This is fine art.

@Ashbad, good point about the dithering, fixing that right now.

 like the plastique'ness of this.

always good to see your work.  Small scaled and great colors/lighting as always.

 Looks great!  Not sure the dithering works everywhere -- it specifically looks wonky on the unlit side of the facing us -- but it works excellently with most of the top of the table, the candle, and the light glow effect.  Should be a strong contest contender.
