for a book project for english class, based on the book inheritance (the 4th and last book of the Eragon series). I wanted to capture the moment when Eragon, Sapphira and Glaedor emerge through a storm into the open night sky, higher above the earth further than any other rider has flown. Eragon realizes the earth is round and the sky is empty, and also how menial the petty conflicts of men really are compared to the magnitude of the universe.

You've captured a beautiful moment in the series in an even more beautiful piece of artwork. Hats off! I really love this piece, especially since I don't see a lot of Inheritance Cycle fanart! :clap: :D

OK WAIT A SECOND. How come people get to read Eragon or Percy Jackson and all in school and I have to study Geoffrey Chaucer's 13 century old english or Shakespeare?  THAT"S SO UNFAIR!!!!! Good job by the way :D

Still, I had to read Persepolis, Oedipus Rex and Woman at point zero for my SSR. That's not even funny :( I am going to jump of a bridge now.

No she doesn't. Since I did IB, whatever we read must have contributed towards boarding our cultural horizon and us as an independent learner (rubbish, right?). So naturally all we read were books about sex, violence, rape, pedophile and incest on international level :|

You even watch movies >.<
