Earthsea - The Tombs of Atuan by collin-kerr Earthsea - The Tombs of Atuan by collin-kerr
Based on the 2nd novel of "The Earthsea Quartet" - The Tombs of Atuan by Ursula K Leguin.

An illustration of Ged/Sparrowhawk, together with the High Priestess, Tenar.... I drew Ged a bit older compared to my previous interpretation as it is described he is coming of age. I based Tenars clothes on the mini-series, but drew her as a fair-skinned brunette, as described in the books.

I took alot of time colouring the characters, i didnt spend as much illustrating the background... sorry ppls! it took me about 2 weeks to complete, because of real life commitments and other things.

Well, enjoy!

Updated Febuary 5, 2k5: Changed the grassy fields into a desert, and removed the tree... now it looks more accurate!

I thought Ged was supposed ot have dark skin and dark hair. I also thought Tenar's hair was black for some reason. I don't know why.

ged was meant to be copper-red/brown skin colour, and as for tenar... shes described to have fair skin and red hair... i find it a bit weird that shes fair despite spending her life in a monastry in the desert..

you may be thinking of vetch (estariol), who was actually dark brown and serret, a fair lady with long black hair...

im glad you enjoyed the picture, and i hope you get to see more works i do based on the quartet.

Fair-skinned compared to anyone who isn't a Kargad, yes. Besides, she spends a fair amount of time indoors or under ground....and red-heads don't tan very well. ;D
