Based on one of the most pivotal (and one of my favorite) scenes in "Jewel of Fire", the 7th book in the Chronicles of Westria by Diana L Paxson.
I have made several attempts at illustrating this scene in the past, all of which you can find documented here on my tumblr blog--> scribbleymark.tumblr.com/post/…
Give me another year, and I'll probably do *another* version XD
I've glad you like it! It was quiet a challenge to paint.
I did just realize that I put like, 8 dudes in this illustration and there would have been a time when I thought that that was WAY TO MANY PEOPLE. IT'S NOT EVEN POSSIBLE. XD I guess....I've grown? I've grown, Merry!
