Illustration Friday: Mesmerizing

I was Inspired by William Blake's watercolor painting for Illustration Friday's theme, "mesmerizing." Blake painted the snake to accompany The Marriage of Heaven and Hell, "A Memorable Fancy" from his Illuminated Books. Below is Blake's watercolor. I have used hand-painted papers then cut, collage and assembled.

  3. Thanks everyone. Such as artists are, I've updated the image. I finished off the snake's tail. You can see the comparison from the image below.
