Ornamental Letter

This drawing is based off of the Brothers Grimm tale, “The Frog King”. The tale takes place by a well under a Linden tree in the great dark wood near the king’s castle. From this, I decided on a darker color palette with muted earthy tones. The foliage element behind the "F" is actually the bloom from the Linden tree that the well is under. The lonely frog only asks for a companion when he fetches a ball from the well for the princess that was playing there. The frog's disheartened slouch is based on the fact that the princess promises all that he asked for, but goes back on her word until the king makes her follow through.
