The Nutcracker

This assignment was to illustrate a theater poster so I decided to depict 'the Nutcracker.' At first I was going to incorporate the mouse king and the toy soldier but resulted in a cropped image of the soldier's face. I think this image works the best because it will gain the viewer's attention quickly and the toy soldier image has become iconic. I used a wash out technique with gouache and ink to create the line work and then painted with watercolor.
