Princess Bride Tribute Art - "Through the Fire Swamps"

One of the most quoted movies in our household, I always tell my husband to "have fun storming the castle" when he has a difficult work day ahead of him.

This was done over a year ago for Nerdcore show at Ink and Pistons / Slushbox Gallery.

Through the Fire Swamps
Prints available

This was one of the first pieces I started to utilize my airbrush again. I haven't airbrushed since school (1992). I used it to smooth out the background and add some glow on the fire, nothing detailed.
As you wish WIP

Instead of drawing the "real" R.O.U.S's, I decided to have a little fun with WWI barrage balloons. I know they don't technically drop bombs, but it looks cool.
