I’ve been watching a lot of art videos on Youtube. People are really talented, but two pictures caught my eye. One was the picture featured in this video:
The other was a sketch of a girl in a book corner reading a book. It went by so fast, I won’t bother link to it.
It inspired me to create a quite ambitious piece:
That’s Shielle, one of the characters from my book Prince of the Sun, Princess of the Moon. She loves books and libraries, so I imagine she’s wandered into a library somewhere during a storm. After grabbing a candle, she wanders the aisle wondering which book she should read first. Quite a bookworm, that one.
It’s all done in pen and ink (and a little white paint when I messed up =3 ). I plan to color it with alcohol markers. I know I messed up the lighting–especially around her face, but I’m pleased with how it came out.
