Edit: Moved to a more findable category now that the contest is over
My freshly made illustration entry for the Train your Brain contest.
This is the white pig Hen Wen running through the underground world of the fairyfolk of Prydain.
I chose to illustrate the first book of the Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander: The Book of Three. www.goodreads.com/book/show/24…
One of my childhood favourites.
The Dutch version of the Chronicles of Prydain had illustrations that managed to intrigue me and frustrate me as a child. I remember drawing on top of the cover, getting even more frustrated and papering over it to hide it. Consider this take two
It's a painting to be used as a wraparound cover. You can see what I sort of had in mind for the text layout here fav.me/d5mvleq
It's done in acrylic, the papersize is slightly bigger than A3 but this is cropped. Some digital editing for scanner corrections.
Hope you like!
edit: A few people have asked me about the pig. She's a pig of the Tamworth variety, the real one is a lovely brown colour. She lives, or lived, happily on a homestead in the US and the photographer and owner has graciously given me permission to use her photo even though I was very late in asking for it.
