The Happy Prince.

Two frames I illustrated from the story ‘The Happy Prince’ by Oscar Wilde.

I loved the imagery in the first one, which is why I decided to draw it.

And the second one, eh. My human figures suck.

I’ve used a mix of water and poster colours, and a white pen for the highlights.

So the Swallow picked out the great ruby from the Prince’s sword, and flew away with it in his beak over the roofs of the town. He passed over the river, and saw the lanterns hanging to the masts of the ships.
