This is one of my favorite pieces from Magic Origins. I think about this little girl often, this child of a well-off family who ventures out into the streets of Ghirapur with her mechanical guardian at her side. She’s surrounded by the busy inventors and noisy colors of the city, but she has threaded one of her flowers into the automaton’s chest, signifying her trust. I hope that by the time the automaton is forced to leave her side, she’s ready to face the world on her own.
i was going to do a comic tonight, but i ended up doing a paint-over of that wtnv x spn crossover piece that i realized was 2 years old! it had great foundations to be a better piece than it was, but i just wasn’t sure how to execute it. think i’ll put this up as a print in my society6 soon!
