Watercolor and Copic studies
Been revisiting the books I read as a teenager and find myself falling in love with them all over again. Why can’t adult fantasy novels be like this? As part of the process both as a writing and illustrator, I am to work up studies and scenes from each book.
I currently just completed The Hero and the Crown and The Blue Sword by Robin McKinley, which was delightful and sweeping with the fun juxposition of a female hero coming of ago who gets the guy in the end. Still feels just as trite as the original trope, but definitely give points to the role reversal. Just wish the ending of the novels weren’t wrapped up so quickly.
Anywho, above the studies from The Blue Sword.
