Gothic horror

Here’s the amazing C15th statue of George and the Dragon in Stockholm’s Storkyrkan. It’s huge, gruesome (body parts are scattered on the ground beneath the dragon) and made of wood and deer antlers (the spiky bits on the dragon). That’s the princess (and a sheep) in the foreground on the left, and the dragon’s clutching a broken lance in one claw while other is wounding the horse. Back to the old faithful Safari with grey ink for this one, and possibly not a sketch as it took about 45 mins to draw on site, and the same to add colour later!
