Another picture from David and Leigh Eddings' 'Polgara the Sorceress'. It is the scene where the girls have just received their magic amulet's from their father Belgarath the Sorcerer(who is an utterly incorrigible and lovable old man!). If you are wondering why Pol is so dirty the reason is this: for the first 14 years of her life or more she never bathed because she always thought she was ugly. She proved herself wrong later, of course. Her mother Poledra, who was a wolf, could never give birth to an ugly child! The art: I expect you recognize the style by now. At any rate I am not satisfied with Pol's dirty face. I was going to do mixed media for this one, but for my illustrations I only use ink so I did the best I could with tissues. Mixed media is for my manga style only! Pol and Beldaran are supposed to be twins so I tried to give them the same face, but I don't think it worked. Over all I am not happy with this one, but I do love the moment in the book!
