Illustration Friday–Fearless

Fearless

The stranger stood inert like some kind of giant mushroom.  All around it the earth was barren and dry, maybe from its arrival, maybe because of the nails, or pipes, or roots, it had inserted into the ground.   The people were going to avoid it, and hope that it would die off.   More than a few thought of burning it.  But then some kid walked up to it, and did a funny thing: he held out his hand.  What happened next would change the world.

I laid the color down on a pencil sketch in watercolor (technically, watercolor pencils) and then added the pen and marker details.
