OK – so the lighting in this picture leaves something to be desired. But, you get the idea.
The original doodle did not include text or the goose. I wanted to put more of a reference to the story so I toyed with the idea of a harp first, and then the goose. Knowing how cantankerous geese can be, I thought it would be more fun to make it more animated under the giant’s arms. Then, I thought the action of the goose coupled with the huge branch/club maybe looked more like the goose was headed for an unfortunate end. Plus, it was a little plain, so I added the text – a further reference to the story of origin.
Again, only some minor adjustments to be made. I thought about color, but I rather like it as a black/white addition to the portfolio.
