The Old Blind Worm of the Swamp2020

Sometimes I don't feel like using reference images. This painting was born on such an occasion, I just started drawing straight on the blank paper, and the result was this little illustration.
I imagined a scene as if I was illustrating a fairy tale, where this ancient beast suddenly emerges from the dark water, looking like she has been sleeping down there for hundreds of years. Despite she scared the rider, she meant no harm, on the contrary, she was excited to have a visitor at last!
