The Green Knight
".....have you come to see your blow returned? .....Then kneel, brave knight, and let us complete our game........Here is one strike, as good as you gave"
In 2021 a movie based on a 14th-century poem was released the epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend, THE GREEN KNIGHT tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), King Arthur's reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a daring quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic emerald-skinned stranger and tester of men. It's a journey to define his character and prove his worth in the eyes of his family and kingdom by facing the ultimate challenger. Simultaneously faithful to the original text while also subverting it, it's a great and interesting movie.
In 2022 we went on a road trip to follow in Sir Gawain's footsteps you can read part one here

I wanted to capture the image and portrait of the Movie The Green Knight in the style of a painting. Also, I tried to incorporate a lighter version with a bit of otherworldliness with the space. Using our visit to Luds Church on our road trip as inspiration, create a mother nature vibe with the plants and flowers. It was pencilled, inked by hand and then digitally painted, coloured and then distressed.
