Ein holder Jungling... by Himmapaan Ein holder Jungling... by Himmapaan
Ein holder Jüngling, sanft und schon

Having slain the serpent for Tamino [link] , the Three Ladies promptly swoon over the prince, who has meanwhile fainted...

Act I of Mozart's opera, Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute).
Skethbook spread.
Pencil, 2003.

Apologies for quality (and please note this is from a few years ago).

Another Flute illustration, in which Tamino meets the Queen of the Night, is here: [link]

Awww, they do have a softer side to them. The little tippy tail of the dragon is a nice touch!

my my... Zauberfloete is my favorite... My grandma is an opera singer so I did spent half of my childhood mimicking her singing. The Night Queen... Oh. That was when my grandma considered me as potential coloratura soprano :giggle: never became one, though.
I know this opera by heart ;)
It is most beautiful that the Ladies have veils on their eyes. I must agree with someone above - Tamino's legs are a little bit misshaped...
