The final colored version of my Deltora Quest poster
(the black and white one: fav.me/d9joyau
). Done using Staiedler pigment liners, India ink, watercolors, salt, and rubber cement, and touched up in Photoshop elements.
I'm very excited to have finished with this. The bottom part of the poster where the characters are silhouetted was definitely inspired by the Fellowship of the Ring silhouettes of the nine companions. As a LOTR fan, I just couldn't resist.
You might barely be able to see it, but the shadow of Filli is peeking from Jasmine's shoulder. I did some more tweaking to the characters' designs since my first DQ fanart, though Barda is mostly the same. Lief's cloak was fun to do with the "shifting colors," though in some areas it might look a bit too pale.
You might have noticed when glancing through the patterns that there are pictures within the designs. That's because I have hidden images throughout the picture
I thought maybe this would be a fun way to make the picture more interactive... For those of you up for a challenge:
1. Can you spot the seven guardians?
2. How many bees can you find in the picture?
3. How many dragons can you find?
4. Can you name three other hidden images?
Bonus: One of the gems was redone digitally. Which one?
