Fanart - Sankta Alina by fictograph Fanart - Sankta Alina by fictograph

…sankta alina… sol koroleva… sun summoner…

My tribute to Alina Starkov from Leigh Bardugo's The Grisha Trilogy, afantastic series of YA novels set in a Russian-inspired fantasy world and a lovely magic system.  I wanted to show her power (and the amplifiers!) rising out of the Volcra but also a little fear that comes with being an accidental heroine.

Final installment just came out!  Got mine signed by Leigh at the LA Book Release party. *o*  You should pick em up!

Done in traditional media: pen, marker, color pencil on toned paper (as usual).

Haha, you should! It is a pretty quick read. I finished each one in under 4 hours, and there are only 3.  There are also a few good short stories that come with them.

I do too, and well, I'd say it was worth it, 'cause the kefta is gorgeous :love:  Do you intend to do any more Grisha fanart?  I'd love to see your interpretation of one of the boys :D

Oh it's so beautiful! (I think I might look into that series!) I love how her body curves in a way that compliments the way the creatures' bodies curve.
