How to Be an Ogre by aridante How to Be an Ogre by aridante
Quick little watercolor painting I did after re-reading Maurice Sendak's "Where the Wild Things Are," Quite a good read when you're fighting insomnia, heh.

A/N: Cleaner version updated -yay-

How to Be an Ogre by aridante is a stunning watercolor painting depicting a seemingly friendly ogre and a little girl, both of which are resting atop a hillside underneath a lovely sky decorated with clouds. This image caught my eye thanks to the feature posted today. This image utilizes vibrant colors and precision detail work, and is sure to amaze anybody. Watercolor is one of the most difficult painting methods to master, and aridante's work clearly shows that she has, indeed, mastered it. (Selected by +liquisoft) ( Featured by TheRyanFord )

Awesome piece!

I am randomly reminded of Calvin and Hobbes where Hobbes is teaching Calvin to be a tiger...

Love the detail of the ogre's face, and the story that could be. Awesome stuff!
