CAA Speed Paint Challenge: Jabberwocky 7


Today's challenge took 40 mins to paint. Based on this extract: 

"One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back."

CAA Speed Paint Challenge: Jabberwocky 6

CAA Speed Paint Challenge: Jabberwocky 6





Had too much fun doing this piece that it went slightly longer than it should!! 45 mins
Based on challenge 6's extract:

"The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!"


I revisted this piece again to add some background. :D
