Found this drawing from last year then kinda got carried away cleaning it up and coloring it. I’m not 100% on the meaning of cosmos flowers, but the name means “balanced” and there’s a variety called the Psyche cosmos, so I went with ‘em. (And Serona’s costume design is the same as from this illustration.)
About a year and a half ago, I did this picture that I really liked the concept of but less so the execution. When we decided to put together the Benign Kingdom art books, I took the opportunity to completely rework the illustration. I’m overall much happier with the result.
The Benign Kingdom Kickstarter is still going on for another two days!! Once it’s run its course, the art books will jump in price, so it’s not a bad idea to pledge right now if you’re interested in picking them up. Thank you so much to everyone who’s pledged or talked about or been interested in the project. We couldn’t be doing this without you!!
