Work In progress
Updated- working on background- common problem of mine. Character first- environment second- but, I'm getting better all the time!
I am having fun working on these. I have tried to loosen up A LOT - and I think it's paid off. Working with a critique or a conference or a meeting looming ahead can really bog one down. So- free to play- has paid off.
This is the 3rd in the "Legends of Love gone wrong" series. This is King Arthur.
(I decided to skip tristan and Isolde as the love triangle involved an old Uncle- yuck)
So King Arthur and the Tales of his glorious rise and glorious reign and equally glorious fall - He fell for Guinevere -laid his kingdom at her feet- offered her his heart to do with as she would. And she did- she stomped all over it and fell in love with Arthur's best friend- Lancelot. Poor Arthur so blind to it- right in front of his face. And the whole time Merlin knew. He could see the future and said nothing. He let poor Arthur's heart get broken. A spectacularly sad story - of the messiness of love.
(Merlin intentionally looks like a young Andy Rooney- wouldn't he be a good voice for an animated character?)
I will finish and post- needs some trees and flowers- romantic like stuff.
