Favorite Character 2/?
Ravus - Valiant (Holly Black)
"You carried my heart in your hands tonight, but I have felt as if you carried it long before that."
This character has been on my to draw list since about…6th grade? 7th grade? I definitely feel a sense of accomplishment finishing this. I never knew how to draw him, and I’m still not 100% sold on this character design (DARN YOU 6 FINGERED HANDS! *shakes fist), but I’m satisfied.If you haven’t read Valiant, or any of the Modern Faerie Tales by Holly Black, please do. They’re wonderful novels that got me through middle school and the beginning of high school. I may or may not draw Rath Roiben Rye from the series in a similar fashion, but he’s further down my list :)
