Legends of the Maiden’s Tower
- Client BÜMED

This is an illustration I've done to BÜMED's monthly magazine's special "Istanbul" issue. They requested that I draw three of the legends surrounding this small islet, which is located at the southern entrance of the Bosphorus.
So from left to right, " Hero and Leander" (greek) , "Princess and fruit snake" (byzantium) and "Battal Gazi and the Maiden" (later Byzantium and Arab invasion era).
A rushed piece. But at the end, it turned out pretty okay in my opinion.
Note: I know Hero and Leander is actually not based on this islet, but people take it as so.
