The Norka


Few sketches from an assignment I'm working on at the moment for the Bologna Book Fair.Like last years brief, I'm keeping it loose style wise.The story I chose is an old Russian Fairy Tale (again with the Russkies) about a multidimension mink who terrorizes a King's land.So he sends his three sons to slay the beast,in return for all his inheritance.

 Roughs on Norka.Looking a bit haggard!

Two of the Kings oldest sons,the main antagonists.

 Two of the three princesses (sisters of the Norka,bizarre I know,right?) There's a plot element involving them turning their palaces into eggs,should be interesting to draw...

...and finally here's some thumbnail developments.First one is of the King's council,just have a bit of tweaking to do for the arrangement of things.The one below is of the third son and hero of the story,discovering one of the princesses palaces.
