This was an exercise meant to set a younger Sapphire and Steel in a historical setting by reinterpreting a classical piece of art to accommodate them. This particular piece was "The Nightmare" painted in 1781 by Henry Fuseli. Oddly enough, my interpretation is actually more normal than the original.

Oh, that under-the-chin and extreme foreshortening was a challenge and no mistake. The cloth was actually the most fun thing to do in this piece (the original had a lot more drapery, but the scanner is only so big and so I had to prioritize my characters over background!).
