This is a pretty dramatic part of the story, so no text to accompany it this time. Don't want to give away too much! I'm proud to say I completed this painting in one day! Most of the paintings for this book have taken about 3 days each. Granted, this image is more simple than others, but at the same time, this is the last image I finished sketching--just last week in fact. It was a challenging point in the story to illustrate because I didn't want to be too gruesome. So it ended up being a lot more symbolic than literal. I'm satisfied with it and especially enjoyed lighting this image. Oh, so fun!
