This is basically the Image I’d had in my mind when I read those two separate lines. Not exactly how it was described, but after many numerous failed attempts to draw what I was picturing and realizing that I liked how this was going in Math class, I rolled with this. I’ll say this was more inspired, not based, on the book.
(And just a heads up, this (as always) looks better irl, and also his head is supposed to be tilted downward; I’m not sure why, but it’s easy to tell in the irl pic, but this one manages to lose that somehow. Just letting y’all know. Oh, and my scanner is shit too, so hence the image quality being eh.)
