Kubo's Obstacles Yet to Come

For this contest and the theme presented, I chose to look at the obstacles Kubo will face after his "hero's journey" has ended. He has made peace with what he has lost and has become stronger because of it. He has gone through his journey of self-discovery and now he must carry the weight of expectation and motivation. 

Without his friends and family, he battles the new obstacles thrown at him solo. The dragons represent a new foe presented before him each representing doubt when having to overcome an obstacle by yourself. They come swirling all around us with one following right after the other and seemingly too large to possibly defeat. This illustration is meant to show the courage to battle something larger than yourself, even when fighting that battle alone. 


This contest was challenging for me to do a more dynamic, colorful, composition heavy piece. While I still can learn more in this regard I had a great time with my friends working on each of our entries together! Good luck to the other artists entering and I look forward to seeing the results!

I love the way those dragons sort of coil around the camera. And that sword swing is epic!

I love this piece of art. It looks as incredible as the movie looked. I personally don't like the movie all that much, but I can't deny that this (and the movie) looks amazing. Great job!
