story sketch: unfolding wings [update: 04-15-2011]

This sketch is based on "unfolding wings," the first in a series of beautiful poems by [personal profile] ysabetwordsmith about the Origami Mage, an Eastern style hero from an asian inspired fantasy world. Please visit Penultimate Productions for more of the Origami Mage and her rival the Kirigami Mage (along with some other fantastic poetry series!)

Wow! I'm grateful to everyone who's posted on this thread for making the sketch upgrade possible -- the cleaned-up sketch is a vast improvement over the original. The added architectural detail creates a much stronger sense of 'place' to the drawing, but what I find most impressive is that you were able to keep that same degree of wonder in her expression while taking years off of her face. I think you'd be an excellent choice of artist for the book, if/when that comes together; good luck!
