Originally created this piece as an entry to the Threadless Heavy Metal cover art contest but decided against entering as I want to maintain all of my rights to the image and wouldn’t be ok relinquishing them unless perhaps I won and got the reward money which wouldn’t be a sure thing. Though it would have been a great opportunity, I’m not ok with releasing my rights to my art merely by submitting the image as stated in their legal terms. It’s a shame but at least I have a new finished piece for my portfolio.
Overall it was an interesting piece to create, loved this color scheme! The composition is a little strange with all that space at the top due to the fact that it was created around the Heavy Metal logo.
This piece was also inspired by Maggy the frog from Game of Thrones. I’m a huge fan of the show!
