My attempt to sketch one of the Masters from John Christopher's Tripods trilogy. They were depicted differently in the series, but there weren't any illustrations of the book ones that I know of.

The legs aren't easy to render, at least for me...The smaller sketches probably should have been somewhere else but I was trying to illustrate how I thought they might appear if we could see through the front leg or from another angle.

I really wish I had more talent with shading and perspective and those areas, but that might require a drawing class or something for me. I'm one of those people who love to draw and yet are rarely able to make the hands produce what the brain sees.

Anyway, I hope it's somewhat ok for the speed...I have a feeling that I just don't have the patience to spend more than 10-20min on a project. However, I will keep at this and see if I can submit any improvements down the road.
