Hugin and Munin
Hugin and Munin fly each day
over the spacious earth.
I fear for Hugin, that he come not back,
yet more anxious am I for Munin.
(Edda)

For this drawing I was inspired by the old norse myth of Hugin and Munin, the two ravens of Odin, who fly out to bring news to him every day. I imagined them here in a human form, as two brothers desiring freedom to fly wherever they want and not come back.

Done with Fineliner and Copic Markers

Meluan Lackless
Meluan Lackless in the gardens of the Maer's estate with Selas flowers.

"I was not prepared for the sight of Meluan Lackless herself.[...]her profile struck me with such a strong resemblance that I couldn't help but stare. I knew her, I was certain of it. But I couldn't for the life of me remember where we might have met...
[...]My eyes wandered over maddeningly familiar features. [...] She was strikingly lovely, with a strong jaw and dark brown eyes.
[...]I made a show of looking over Meluan's features, taking note of her pale skin and her artfully curled chestnut hair. Her mouth was full and red without the benefit of any paint. The line of her neck was proud and graceful." (The Wise Man's Fear)

I tried to stay very close to the description in the book and decided for the colours red and gold for her dress because I wanted to make a relation to the theme of fire. I hope you like her.

My piece for the "Touched by Fire"-Contest by Kingkiller-Fans

I chose Meluan because, though she doesn't play a big role in the books, her life was completely changed by the appearence of Kvothe in it and his interference in the Maer's affairs. She was touched by Kvothe's fire and that made her marry the Maer. And she too changed Kvothe's life by sending him away from the Maer. ...and I simply wanted to draw her for quite some time now :D
