Book cover excercise - Silvertongue by secondlina Book cover excercise - Silvertongue by secondlina
Words full of poison.

This is from a series of sketches I did where I took an element from a book cover and tried to draw something different around it, without changing the position or the location of the element (aka, if it's smack in the middle of the frame, it stays there). This one is using the drawing from Russ­ian edi­tion of The Hob­bit. I wanted to finish it. The whole exercise was a lot of fun. It's really hard to not move the elements.

My dragon looks a bit different though. Here's the original cover : [link]

J'aime beaucoup son bras et son masque, ça donne un côté très sympa au personnage. =)

I love the way you did the dragon and the why her arm is unwrapping too

Yeah, he's a cool dragon. Changed him a bit too much though. Failed the exercise :P
