This piece portrays my attempts to recreate the style of William Joyce while illustrating one of my favorite books (Words of Radiance).
For this week's drawing, I was supposed to draw something from my imagination. At first I thought that was overly vague, but it allows quite a bit of freedom. The problem was trying to decide exactly what from my imagination I wanted to draw. I finally decided on Kaladin and Syl. (I think I probably illustrate them too much).
It occurred to me last week that there were quite a few parallels between Kaladin and Nightlight (from Guardians of Childhood), and so I decided to try illustrating Kal after the style of William Joyce. So Kaladin is drawn like Nightlight and Syl is drawn like the moonbeam.
I'm really happy with how they turned out! It was super fun to try and get the right blend between looking like either character. Also, the moonbeam's swirls of star dust translated quite nicely into a skirt, although drawing them was an interesting challenge. ;)
Overall, I think this picture was a success. I think that later, if I have time, I'd like to go back and add a background, but for right now, I'm pretty happy with this piece.
