Welcome to the Secret of Kells Group!

:bulletgreen:What is "The Secret of Kells"?

The Secret of Kells (working title: Brendan and the Secret of Kells) is an Irish-French-Belgian animated feature film by Cartoon Saloon that premiered on February 8, 2009, at the Berlin International Film Festival.

A plot summary by Wikipedia:
The story is set in the ninth century. Obsessed with building a mighty wall to keep marauding Viking raiders from destroying the Monastery of Kells, Abbot Cellach expects his young nephew Brendan to follow in his footsteps. Brendan has apprenticed in the scriptorium of the monastery and has heard the story of Aidan of Iona, a master illustrator. Later, Aidan himself comes to the monastery, accompanied by his cat Pangerbon. Aidan has escaped from the Vikings who have destroyed his own monastery, and has brought the Book of Kells he is working on. Aidan shows Brendan the beauty of art and stimulates his creativity and fantasy. His eyes and hands are failing, and he needs Brendan to assist. Brendan is forbidden to leave the monastery, but Aidan sends him into the forest to look for gall nuts to make ink. A faerie/wolf spirit, Aisling, introduces him to a wider world. Brendan needs to stand up to his uncle and face his greatest fears in his quest to complete the book.

Hello everyone! I've updated the folder so that everything can be a little more organized. Right now it's just separated in Digital and Traditional art, but let me know if you guys think there should be more. :D

Also, we recently had an issue with a user submitting art that wasn't their own. I just want it to be clear that art theft in any way, shape, or form will NOT be tolerated. It will result in your art being removed and you will be banned.
