Firstly, I have to apologise for a huge gap between posts - I hope you guys don't mind too much! I haven't been feeling super inspired lately, but I'm trying to push through that now and create some new work. I've also been sending some submissions to a few independent magazines so I really hope that I get some good news from them. Onto the illustration, this is inspired by one of the characters from Robin Hobb's 'Assassin's Apprentice' trilogy which I finished a little while ago, and I loved everything about it. If you are a fan of fantasy books, then I would definitely recommend them. The protagonist has this amazing wolf companion who he can share thoughts with, and he travels around with him on various adventures - must be awesome to have such a loyal friend!
I really love making my illustrations colourful lately too, and it's been fun to practice drawing animals because it's something I haven't really done in the past.
I was also thinking that I might host a little giveaway soon, to win a custom illustration of anything you want! Would anyone be interested in that? I'd be happy for all of you to enter, even if I've already illustrated you in the past!
I hope you're all having a good week, and as always, I'm so grateful for all of your comments and feedback.
