This is an illustration that I created for an Italian event. I live in the North of the Italy in a land that many many years ago was totally covered by a huge lake called Gerundo. According to the legend the guardian of this ancient lake was a huge dragon that moved between the various villages looking for children, his favorite food! This year a local organization has decided to celebrate our ancient lake and it asked me to create a illustration for the event.
I have imagined a story of revenge in which a desperate father challenges the monster with his small sword... he has nothing to lose, everything he had in this world is finished because of the dragon. Behind him a small group of people that come to see the monster and this improbable fighting.
As usual created in Painter X with my Wacom.
