After the flowers of the divine, the rose and the lotus, Florario, the book I am following for my exploration of myths and legends of plants and flowers (more about it in this post), presents a chapter about the cosmic trees. The very first of them is the ash tree (frassino in Italian), for which the most well known traditional tale is that of the Yggdrasil. Because of the popularity of this myth,Yggdrasil has been represented many many time by different artists in different historical periods..so I am pretty sure that I will not come out with a very original image. Nonetheless, it's a fascinating subject and I'll give it a try. Here is the original rough (very rough) sketch and the pencils of the piece. Now I am slowly inking with my grey Copic Multiliner...it will take a while. ;)
Linking up to Manon's Paper Sundays.
Stay warm (we are having snow this weekend...again!) and may spring come to your home soon!
