New artwork by Trav-
Working on a new series of artwork based on what happened to the fairy folk during world war I & II. I am really enjoying the freedom I have with this project.
the Mustard Beast
During the great war i had heard rumors that the forgotten folk fought on both sides. To the axis forces went the great gas elementals known as the mustard beasts. These creatures whose brains were protected by a metal helmet floated into the trenches and fields after heavy shelling and unleashed their deadly toxins. Killing and wounding many brave human souls.
After the war the govt cited that mustard gas was from shells themselves, but the men of the trenches knew better.
circa 1917 in france somewhere
Total work time on pencils and inks 1 hour 30 min: 8 x 10.5 inches colors took 1.5 hours as well.
more information to come on this project.
I like the color version so much better:)
