literally the only thing i’ve been working on the last couple weeks. you might have noticed that i’ve just been posting quick sketches…? it’s because of this monstrosity. it’s for Arielle's Ladies of Literature zine! it’s not quite where i want it to be, so before i finally give it to Arielle, i would really love some feedback. i feel like maybe there’s too much going on..?

here’s some background: the focus is Orual, a character in C. S. Lewis’ novel Til We Have Faces, which is a retelling of the Greek myth of Cupid and Psyche. Orual is Psyche’s older, ugly sister and the story is told from her perspective. she was genuinely one of my favorite characters as a kid, and still is. it’s beautifully written and i hope this will get more people to read it. :D
