Inktober day 15 – “legend”


A cheerful engraver waves from her perch.

This was one of those prompt words that gave me trouble because everything I could think of was just straightforward fantasy tropes. I like what I came up with because it takes the epic out of the picture and makes it about artistry and storytelling.

I decided to digitally colour this one because I didn’t want to have to fill basically the entire sheet, while also having to carefully colour around the letters to avoid smudging them! I also left a bit of paper texture and pencil in for effect.
