Trade: Starling

First off I'd like to thank to thank DeltaStarling DeltaStarling for being so incredibly patient with me.

So, I was kind of stuck on what to do for this. I had a few ideas but nothing that I thought I could commit to... so I flipped through my inspiration folder decided to let Frank Frezetta's illustrations for LOTR be my jumping off point. Thus, fantasy setting and my hamfisted attempts to emulate Frezetta's masterful ink work.

      This really helped me to indulge some things I've been wanting to do, so thank you for doing this trade with me! (and also for being so patient and understanding)
      Yes, of course you may!

    I wish I could be more articulate, but I felt I needed to comment since I think this piece is one of the best you've done recently. Your use of negative space, white space, minimal lines and composition is simply beautiful.

      Thank you!
      One of these days I'm really going to have to thank my professor for hammering composition into all our heads so thoroughly.
