I have a crazy idea...
Why don't I paint a complicated composition with a giant crocodile monster and many peoples in a boat. I should be able to whip that out in no time flat….
....Two years later. Whew. Almost done!
This composition was based on a scene from Tad Williams Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn trilogy. Williams is a master world builder that inspired a whole generation of fantasy writers and has delighted readers for many years.
