Next up in my Book of Lost Things Illustrations is the knight, Roland. Like the other characters in the story he is based on a previous story character, in this case he is based on Roland from Robert Browning's classic poem, "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came." Like the character in that poem, Roland also seeks a tower; but in this case the tower that he seeks is called the fortress of thorns. It is there that he intends to discover what has happened to his best friend/soulmate Raphael, who ventured to that fortress to lift the sleeping curse from the woman locked in the tower but never returned. For this piece, I focused more on baroque shading techniques and colors in order to generate a somber mood in the piece.
