A Childs Thought by Pyrosity A Childs Thought by Pyrosity
At seven, when I go to bed,
I find such pictures in my head:
Castles with dragons prowling round,
Gardens where magic fruits are found;
Fair ladies prisoned in a tower,
Or lost in an enchanted bower;
While gallant horsemen ride by streams
That border all this land of dreams
I find, so clearly in my head
At seven, when I go to bed.


Second project for illustrating literature, this is a three part seamless illustration of the poem "A child's thought" by Robert Louis Stevenson. I decided against depicting scenes verbatim and instead put on a different take to the story that still held to the poem's imagery.

The 'dragon' is my own fabrication; I wanted an almost cat-like serpentine dragon with a bit of eastern influence, and with a hint of the demonic (spikes, hooves). It's a dragon in definition, a nightmarish and powerful monster. Are the soldiers running away or on it's side? That's up to you.

Very cool. I love how they all transition smoothly into one another. The scene depicted on the bottom is my favorite!

Thank you! Was a joy to work on; meshing the transitions was one of the biggest challenges to be sure.

Thank you! It was definitely one of the hurdles for this one, but I'm pretty satisfied with how it worked out.
