My tribute to Alina Starkov from Leigh Bardugo's The Grisha Trilogy, a fantastic series of YA novels set in a Russian-inspired fantasy world and a lovely magic system. I wanted to show her power (and the amplifiers!) rising out of the Volcra but also a little fear that comes with being an accidental heroine.
Final installment just came out! Got mine signed by Leigh at the LA Book Release party. *o* You should pick ‘emup!
Done in traditional media: pen, marker, color pencil on toned paper (as usual).
leigh, if you are reading this, nilah, cassie and i would all gladly work on a grisha movie *coughcough*
OH. MY. WORD. I can’t tell you how much I adore this. Loved seeing the work in progress at the launch but oohhhhhhhh the final!!! Thank you so much for sharing it <3
Seriously, Tumblr, are you kidding me, you deleted this one, too?! Re-blogging myself again because Tumblr is a shitface.
