Krysar: Betrayal of his flute

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Krysar (Rat-catcher) by Viktor Dyk is such an amazing book! It's short, it's beautiful, it's almost fantasy and it's classic - what else could you wish? I don't know whether it was translated into other languages, but if you find it somewhere, read it! The tale is based on that old legend about rats in Hameln, but other aspects were added. And I have decided to make some illustrations for it. Because I have to make something special for my art school, I'm in the last term:-(  I don't want to leave... Made with help of graphite pencil 5B, lots of hairspray - fortunatelly it really keeps the graphite where I want it to be, magical scotch tape (I hate it, it should be easy to detach, but it isn't), atlas of the world (where the paper was attached) and also lots of music - to keep my patience where I wanted it to be. The worst thing on pictures is, that you cannot see this flute has magical powers... You must believe me. I tried to capture the moment, when the flute falls down from rat-catcher's hands into a pit.
