Jarroot, Jarre, and Glassware - The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia

I am thrilled to share another new piece from The Grand Bazaar of Ethra VanDalia. This illustration is for Book Two: The Completed Circle. This piece is a second supporting image for the book section dedicated to the Ambitious Farmhand. The main protagonist, the farmhand, works on a jarroot farm that processes the tuber to make the alcoholic beverage, Jarre. I present to you with Jarroot, Jarre, and Glassware.

This was the second of six smaller pieces I wanted to finish before moving to larger, more involved works in book two. Each section of book two will have at least two supporting pieces of art. They will help flesh out the section and add context to things in and beyond the Grand Bazaar. The main art for the first three sections of the book are completed, so it only seemed natural to complete the supporting pieces as well. With them finished, I have moved on to much larger pieces that will keep me in the chair drawing for a while. Here is a look at the sketch for the Jarroot, Jarre, and Glassware to show where it began.

As a bonus, I have some images of the rendering process of this piece so that you can get a better idea of it taking shape.
