First finished piece of 2015, and first trade in the batch for who requested me do an illustrative interpretation of a fairy tale he wrote. There were a lot of great ones, but I settled on the one entitled The Organist's Heart. It's hard to make a synopsis of something as profound and ethereal as a fairy tale, but this one hit all the right "sweeping fantasy quest" chords with me and I couldn't resist. Picture it as a cover illustration of sorts.
Edit: Here is the accompanying story. Go read it, it's well worth it!
His amazing half! For those that don't pay attention to Collections.
Done on 8.5x11 pen sketch paper with Staedtler pigment liners.
