Merlin: It was here that I last saw my father. Arthur: You never talked about it. Merlin: There’s not much that I can say. I didn’t really know him that well, but… I was proud of him. I want him to be proud of me.
This was a stop start project over lots of months so it changes styles a lot of times -.-’ I kinda started it because I’d had the whole “Modern Merlin walks past a reincarnated Arthur” thing stuck in my head for ages but then I thought @ptelly ‘s butterfly in “Return of the King” was kinda iconic so I tortured myself some more and threw that in there :)
This a request for whimsycatcher! She had requested a drawing of Merlin showing Arthur his magic, but I wanted to draw a slightly different scene compared to the original. Btw I’m still working on one other request she had made, (almost done!)
