I so enjoyed drawing this page! I went home this weekend and spent a day walking amidst glorious bluebell woods, breathing in the scent of the apple blossom and feeling the leaves blooming around me… Then to complete the sense of nostalgia that the change of seasons always brings me, I spent the train journey home reading The Fellowship of the Ring (I’m slowly getting through LOTR! Slowly! I keep getting held up by pausing to wallow in the wonderful feeling of that world!). I think all of that refreshing stimulus came out in a rush of inspiration when I got back to Cambridge and sat down to draw this page, helped by the fact that I’ve been looking forwards to drawing this one since I planned out the Prologue. Old brick walls and trees – who could want for more than that!?
Hope you guys like looking at this page as much as I enjoyed drawing it =D
