Alonso Quixano the Good by misterunlucky Alonso Quixano the Good by misterunlucky
The full title of this image is "The Ghost of Alonso Quixano the Good or, the Surrender of Don Quixote de La Mancha."

The concept is that, upon his deathbed, the ingenious hidalgo repented his sins of having read and become maddened by the tales of chivalry he had based his exploits on. In so repenting, he surrendered the validity of his imagination and surrendered to the conventions of society. His ghost rides defeated across the plain.

Illustrator CS2. 3 hours, using only the pencil tool and a mouse.

Nice work, simple and effective.
It remembers me to some illustrations of the 60's & 70's in Spain.

I'm a total lamebrain... Sometimes it takes me a long time to reply to posts and messages.
Thanks very much for the compliment!
I was pretty happy with this concept... I think I'll actually paint it using real media instead of digital media.
