The Completed Circle - 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 is one of the numerous pieces of spot art throughout the book. As with last week's piece, this is for the beginning of the book in the A World of Stories section. This is the centerpiece for book two, the tale of The Completed Circle, the oldest existing written story on the planet. Or, should I say, what is left of it. All remaining copies, unfortunately, were severely damaged so long ago that there is no record of the destroyed bit. But there will be a lot more on that in the book. The Completed Circle was written on scrolls housed within one large case and adorned with a Sekkine Viper biting its tail.  I present The Completed Circle.

This is one of the many pieces I completed so far this year. It has been a blur of pencil and paint. Nice to finally be sharing them. Here is a look at the sketch for The Completed Circle 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.
