'Inspiration' contest sketches by Zephyri 'Inspiration' contest sketches by Zephyri
The Art Order blog is holding another contest, with the highly vague theme of 'inspiration'. I'd actually been struck by an image while walking home one day a couple of weeks prior to the contest announcement so it seems a little serendipitous to say the least! Playing here with the idea of thoughts as little lanterns, each alight with it's own little inspiration. I already have my favourite which is being transferred to the illustration board as we speak, but feel free to chuck your thoughts at me anyway :)

The other inspirations at work here are also old school fairy tale illustrations and renaissance style fantastical dresses.

These are all digital currently, as I find it easier to iterate with more defined sketches like this, and it'll be transferred via a grid to the rather dauntingly large piece of board I have to be done in whatever medium takes my fancy!

I love both Crown of Sparks and Into Wonder. Into Wonder looks like the most finished of these sketches, the background and lines are already so well rendered!
