Wicked Kingdom: The King of Diamonds Posted on 03 Jun 2015
11x17" oil, acrylic, and watercolor on paper
THE KING OF DIAMONDS, seeker of knowledge and bringer of light. Alongside his laboratories and the unimaginable libraries contained within, all other wonders of the four kingdoms pale.
It is the subject of some debate how many decades he spent shut up in the darkness, bent over scrolls and beakers - but legend generally puts the number between ten and fifteen. The fruit of his labors: a kingdom renowned for its ceaseless industry and unsurpassed wealth, whose heights and depths alike are perpetually illuminated by the harnessed light of alchemical fires.
The finished pencil art, 11x17"Next up, I'll be starting the queens. Before I exposed the Wicked Kingdom project to the unforgiving light of day, I had all the kings thumbnailled out (and the pencil art already done for a few of them). The queens will be completely new territory - always nerve-wracking, but I'm looking forward to seeing what comes of it.
Your work is SUBLIME
