The Fate of Aino Picture

Here's the right half of my "art diploma". We had 38h in total (5h per week) to do a piece based on any of the 5 themes we were given (it also included a portfolio, not just drawing etc.). I chose the Kalevala theme and wanted to portray Aino and Väinämöinen.

Kalevala is a Finnish national epic. Read more about it here: [link] and more about Aino
