Until Vines Grow Their Name

There is a rumor that somewhere there is a sword in the stump, and whoever would get that sword, would be granted with great might. It wouldn't even be hard to pull that sword out from the old tree stump. Unfortunately nobody has ever got past the guardian frog. And those who have lived, have been too afraid to ever tell what exactly makes a frog so frightening.

¤ Pencil and watercolors. Random idea which I absolutely had to make.

Love the colours and the light effect shining upon the guardian! I'm more terrified of the being that stuck the sword into the stump - by the looks of it the force splintered it at the middle. On the other hand, everyone would underestimate a frog.

I thought of something hilarious for why the frog might be so frightening, but it's too lowbrow, so I'll just say this is beautiful art. : )
