David and Goliath Picture

This was created for the course "Painting Drama" with Chris Oatley.

The theme was David and Goliath. A hero against a clear enemy which has a very different size. We also had to convey a sense of atmosphere, tension and scale.
I chose an aquatic scenario. She's a warrior mermaid and that's the Kraken.
I tried my best to convey a closed feeling in which the mermaid can't escape and she has to fight even though it's an open area.

I would suggest any artist to try and audition for Painting Drama or at least join Magic Box.
