The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.
I created an artwork similar to this a few years ago that was just a simple, quick little fun render for a contest. I liked that render but, like I said, it was just a quick little for fun render that I didn’t spend nearly enough time on for it to be good enough even though I really loved the silly concept of it. I finally went back and gave that silly concept the time and respect… or at least the time it deserved. I wanted it to look “epic” so I added the melting candles which seemed to add an “epic” atmosphere at least to me. I also gave it a slightly vintage feel and look with the coloring of the books and overall coloring of the scene. There’s not really a deep meaning to this piece, unless you interpret one for yourself; it really is just a case of me having fun.
