Inktober Day 24: Linon and the Zubir by jainas Inktober Day 24: Linon and the Zubir by jainas

The Sarantine Mosaic: Sailing to Sarantium, by Guy Gavriel Kay

The old god demands an offering...

A clean scan for day 24 of my 2017 Inktober, as a present for GGK : I got to meet him yesterday and gave him the illustration in person! :)

My challenge this year was to do each day of my inktober around a different quote: from peoples, books, poems...
In the Sarantine Mosaic, the encounter with the Zubir is an incredibly haunting scene, and I wanted to convey the oppressive feeling of old power, but also the sense of decay that the old god carries.

I used some big salt cristals to give the ink texture on the ground... but some of it melted before I could remove it and so the original piece has some interesting unplanned glistering texture under the hooves of the Zubir, that can't really be seen on the scan.
