“Night, the beloved. Night, when words fade and things come alive. When the destructive analysis of day is done, and all that is truly important becomes whole and sound again. When man reassembles his fragmentary self and grows with the calm of a tree.”
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Done for my illustration class. The original idea was based on the lovely works of Arthur Rackham, specifically his illustrations for Grimm’s fairytales. His detailed and fantastical drawings were so breathtaking I fell in love immediately.
Its kind of a a really bad photo of it because I couldn’t get ahold of a scanner. I’ll scan it soon hopefully so you can see the details more clearly, because believe you me, there is a ton of detail. BUT I FINISHED IT! That should be cause for celebration. 40+ hours of work finally complete.
Pencil, colored pencil, ink, watercolor, acrylic, and gel pen.
This is one of my more recent endeavors, drawn in honor the Pirates of the Caribbean. I REALLY want this to be a sticker some day. Just look at that baby Kraken and tell me you don’t want that as a sticker?
