I did this painting for a friend as a Hanukkah present. I'm banking that he's not gonna be checking my deviantart page anytime soon cuz I don't wanna wait to upload it!
My inspiration for the style was Arthur Rackham. I had never heard of him before I saw a special on him in ImagineFX 84. I was struck by the beautiful line work and faded storybook color palette. I knew I had to try it out! This was definitely a fun experiment. Also I used reference from photos I took of Miur Woods while I was vacationing in San Francisco.
