I actually think it’s a bit of a shame that this will end up publishing so small - there’s some fairly subtle details about Felice that I’m fairly proud of, but that are hard to see without blowing the image up a bit.
I'm hopping past another illustration for the time being - this is Kylee's first meeting with Vanderys the Cedrani (or Elf, to us ignorant humans).
Takes place a few hours after 3-3, when the siblings return to their new home following dinner. How exciting, they already have company!
This makes 18 Whispers of Heaven sketches, with 12 still to go (1 from part 2, and 11 from Part 3).
It took me MUCH longer to get this done than it should have, but I finally finished it.
There's still 1 more illustration to do for this part of the book, which I've been putting off. The moment when the Rose family catches their first sight of the Camp of the Darkling Prince, back at the beginning of the section.
As promised, here's the complete set. Overall, I think these turned out really well!
This leaves 3 more illustrations in Part 2 still to go - the first one that opens the section, #6, and the final piece.
Pretty happy with how this one looks so far. Just one more sketch to go, then I'll move on to final linework.
