A Quick Study for Tyria's Arrows

I see this drawing done with fine detail to capture the threads of the fletching as well as the feathers. Perhaps I will include Tyria's hands in the drawing as she wraps the feathers to secure them to the shaft. This was a quick study to work out some of the fletching details for the arrows and I enjoyed putting in some cast shadows, as though the arrows were sitting on the page of the book.



There is a scene in Book Two, Remembering, where Tyria repairs her arrows. I did a fair amount of research on how medieval arrow fletching is done, and at the time of writing the scene, I was excited to explore it as an illustration.
