Prince by Firedrake

Currently unavailable for purchase

Behold his beastly majesty.

A big new addition to my bestiary – watercolour, pen, chalk pastel, copper leaf on canvas. He is biggish...35×28cm. As well as on the crown there are little bits of copper throughout.

Crappy shot but it shows the scale:

Shiny shiny
Shiny beast with feathers!

A collection of curious beasts of the sea, air, land and subconscious; painted and drawn with airbrush, dip pen and stained fingers, lovingly embellished with iridescent pigments and metal leaf.

    Your work never ceases to blow me away – NEVER! Wonderful pen work, the glint of the eye, the sharp metal of the head… it’s brilliant, but I love your work so you shouldn’t be too surprised.

    The “nostril” hollow, the copper specks beneath the eye – fantastic in the literal sense =)

    Thanks everyone!
    Red is my favourite colour, it’s funny that more of my stuff is not red. There are orange and purple tones in the red feathers too.

    Yes he is regal…but not as wise as the King. He is young, impetuous, aggressive…
