Media: 0.7 pencil. Contrast added in Photoshop A possible cover image for the book I’m currently writing. The book tells about Nini, who is a little cippari girl. Cipparies are clever but small forest folk that live in the large forest of Injyan. Their legends tell that the ground is full of dangerous monsters and beasts and only experienced hunters are allowed to leave the shelter of the trees. Nini loves stories of all kind, but she has started to wonder why all the stories fail to answer a small innocent question that keeps troubling her mind – if the ground is so full of beasts, then why anyone in the village hasn’t ever seen one… This picture is drastically different from my earlier pictures. I wanted to practise dramatic lighting and drawing using shapes instead of outlines. I got a little carried a way with the sketch and the result was this drawing.
