Ilustration Friday: Twist-ed
One of my favorite book series hands down would have to be the Prydain Chronicles by Lloyd Alexander. In the second book of the series, "The Black Cauldron," we meet three of the coolest characters in the series. Orduu, Orwen and Orgoch are three nasty witches who are great because they are neither antagonists nor protagonists. So actions of these twisted characters are only driven by selfish motives, which makes them unnervingly unpredictable. (If you are a children's fiction fan...I strongly suggest reading this book series.)
This book is incredibly visual, but I've been a big fan of witches my entire childhood, so it was fun to construct what these weird ladies might have looked like.
Anyway... More later.
Thanks for visiting...
