This is one of those paintings that just happen as I go along with it. It was so much fun and relaxing! I added the steps in case people would like to see them :) My steps never make sense orz

Hope you’re having an awesome day!

Some hand references.

Sources 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Redid a post by fucktonofanatomyreferencesreborn with sources because they never source anything and I don’t want to reblog that post because I don’t want to support blogs who don’t give credit to people

(No, stating that the art is ~not yours~ and ~came from elsewhere~ IS NOT PROPER CREDIT. Many of these have usernames and such on them but not every single one and you still ought to link back to the specific piece)

I couldn’t source the last one so I didn’t include it.

All of my yes

Stepping back, he drew the silver bell one-handed, and swung it so it sounded twice. The sound was curiously muffled, but true, and the clear chime hung in the air, fresh and cutting, alive.

Sad to say that I liked the sketched version of this far more, but there you have it! Took me forever to figure out what I wanted to do, when my original idea didn’t quite pan out as planned.

Unfortunately, I was not of sound mind or stable attention span when this happening, so it transmogrified and then abruptly ceased to happen. Consider this a cliff hanger, with the image to be continued later this week.

The scene from around Chapter 14, I think and 4 hrs 30 minutes in the audio book.

There’s much too much for me to c&p the part I got all this from! But it’s at the very end of chapter two, for anyone who is curious.

Like a loser, I am the last one to post, because I got overly ambitious and decided to do a comic instead. I liked this part of the chapter because it was kind of an “oh crap” moment when you realize that if Abhorsen is dead, a lot of people really are in a lot of trouble.

Had to upload the comic in these four pieces so you could actually read the dialogue, so click ‘em! If you want to see the comic in its proper long form, you can check it here.

picturethisbook:

    Quashing her natural curiosity to find out exactly what had happened, Sabriel folded the man’s arms across his chest, after first unclenching the grip that his right hand still had on his sword hilt—perhaps he had not been taken totally unawares after all. Then she stood and drew the Charter marks of fire, cleansing, peace and sleep in the air above the corpse, while whispering the sounds of those same marks. It was a litany that every Charter Mage knew, and it had the usual effect. A glowing ember sparked up between the man’s folded arms, multiplied into many stabbing, darting flames, then fire whooshed the full length of the body. Seconds later it was out and only ash remained, ash staining a corselet of blackened mail.
    Sabriel took the soldier’s sword from the pile of ashes and thrust it through the melted snow, into the dark earth beneath. It stuck fast, upright, the hilt casting a shadow like a cross upon the ashes. Something glinted in the shadow and, belatedly, Sabriel remembered that the soldier would have worn an identity disc or tag.
    Shifting her skis again to rebalance she bent down and hooked the chain of the identity disc on one finger, pulling it up to read the name of the man who had met his end here, alone in the snow. But both the chain and disc were machine-made in Ancelstierre and so unable to withstand the Charter Magic fire. The disc crumbled into ash as Sabriel raised it to eye level and the chain fell into its component links, pouring between Sabriel’s fingers like small steel coins.
    “Perhaps they’ll know you from your sword,” said Sabriel. Her voice sounded strange in the quiet of the snowy wilderness and, behind each word, her breath rolled out like a small, wet fog.
    “Travel without regret,” she added. “Do not look back.”

I think I’ve kind of decided to try and do comics for most of my Sabriel things. Not making any promises, but for now, there you go. They’re a nice way to play around with different ideas, in any case!

I also realize that she is totally supposed to be wearing skis but they just did not want to work for me. Haha, my badddd.

Also for the proper version of the comic with all the panels on a single page, click on over here.
