Rise Apprentice Picture

Maleficent recruits Elphaba.

What a concept!

When preparing this picture I deliberately emmulated J. Leyendecker's 1916 painting of Medb enthroned from Celtic mythology. Only after I added the raven to the composition did I realize that I had recreated much of the elements from Engres' 1811 painting "Zeus and Thetis".
