The Lute and the Horn by Gasara The Lute and the Horn by Gasara
If you managed to get a copy of the #Kingdom-Carousel art book, or have been around any other of my internet haunts lately, then you've probably already seen this. This was my piece for a wonderful charity art book put together in order to raise money for St. Jude's Children Research Hospital. It was an inspiring project to be a part of, and the book itself is just breathtaking.

This illustration, drawn back in April, was inspired by a sketch and my love for all things medieval. I'd also recently watched some of the Ivanhoe cartoon I loved when I was younger, hence the title. Unfortunately, the lute and the horn mentioned in the song referenced never actually made it into the picture. Drawing animals was a fun challenge and, while there are still a few things I'd tinker around with or improve on, this has turned out to be one of my favourite illustrations. It's that funny thing about art where maybe it's not the most detailed or accomplished piece I've drawn but it just makes me feel. I look at it and think, yes, that's me.

The Lute and the Horn is just one of the many jewels that can be found in =Gasara's gallery! From the wise use of composition to the elegance in every detail, this piece has been carefully polished to make it what it is: absolutely compelling! ( Featured by rydi1689 )
