St George

There's another collaborative piece in the works, following up The Fisherman's Wife, and the theme is "Dragon." I always enjoy putting modern elements in myths and so I took a stab at St George and the Dragon. The mural in the background tells a piece of the original tale, while the main elements are as if the story is told again, with a modern protagonist. Above are my sketch and final drawing.

sketch looks elite, man. just wondering why you decided to make the mural behind him proportionately smaller than in the original sketch? I didn't really notice until I saw the two next to one another, so I guess it's not that big of a deal, but when comparing them, I like the larger one more, or was it unintentional?

i just wanted the actual figure to take up more space in the piece so now he's mostly in the white of the background as opposed to inside the mural area.
