The Ogre Illustration

I used a passage from The Two Princesses of Bamarre, a novel deeply rooted in my childhood, to create this digital illustration. In the passage, Princess Addie drags an ogre with her as she bounds along using her magic 7 league boots, eventually slamming him into a tower. To illustrate this, I used details like Addie’s billowing dress and hair to show how fast she was moving, and the ogre’s outstretched limbs to indicate how hard he’d impacted the tower. I kept the colors bright but not too overpowering to give off the magical feeling of the book while keeping the medieval time period in mind.
