This was my very first time drawing Joonatan, the bard from The Bard’s Bargain. As we can see, the faery king’s design changed after this somewhat – I decided while sketching the comic pages that horns, troll-like furry ears and a tufted tail gave his looks more personality that just your run-of-the-mill pointy ears, especially since my elves look almost identical.
This was a really fun illustration to work on. My favourite part was the little faery-shaped figures on the mirror’s frame. Fancy, gilded mirrors are so much fun to draw – you can really go nuts with the detailing.
