OrderofOddFish- Tapestry Story

So the photo I took of this killed it. >.< I have got to learn to work small enough to scan this stuff in. So once again you get hear me plug :iconorderofoddfish:'s book. (Read it!) I loved the tales of the Tapestry and this is one of the little shreds from it. You get just enough imagery to think about what the history was of Eldritch city.

"A ballroom full of laughing girls dancing with beautiful monsters." I kind of wanted to do this in an ancient cave drawing kind of way. (Although not my brightest idea when the medium is colored pencils.) Hence why there are simple poses. (But I kind of had to squish the monsters in.) And I tried to mix and match different forms of beauty; hence why the last girl wears both an Indian head piece and Chinese silk ribbons in her hair and the red head has an Italian veil and an English style corset dress. (As well as why colors and crowns are all different.) And who knows maybe in Eldritch City Elongated monsters are considered beautiful?

The Odd Fish and all legal of that nature belong to :iconorderofoddfish: I'm just drawing them.
Pic belongs to me.

Marvelous! I was hoping someone would illustrate this scene, and you nailed it! I particularly like how you said you wanted to do it in "ancient cave drawing kind of way" -- that's the feeling I was going for in the tapestry. I also appreciate how the women are all obviously totally smitten, and the monsters are laughing flirtatiously. And the fashions on everyone are amazing! This might be my favorite of your work.
