A mish-mash of Dublin (Dubhlinn) medieval history ...the Viking invasion (9th century), Christchurch Cathedral (1028), King Brian Boru (941), the round tower in Clondalkin (776), Dublin castle (1228), Strongbow's tomb (16th century) and St Patricks Cathedral tower (1220).
I decided on a hand-drawn approach with this piece. The pencil sketch was transferred onto heavy stock paper and then inked using Faber Castel black Pitt pens. Finally the illustration was scanned and toned in Adobe Photoshop.
