Artwork Description

This is an illustration concept for a children's story called The King's Head and the Purple Dragon written by Frank L. Baum. The dragon has just glued the head of the Magical Monarch of Mo to the body of a woodsman.

For the dragon's scales and wings I used colored pencil to draw directly on top of the acrylic paint layer. In retrospect, I wish I had moved the dragon's right claw over a little so that the glue bottle wasn't so close to the edge of the picture.

Hehe, that books sounds like it will be one interesting children's story Smile. I like the way you've portrayed this scene.

Art at its best.
