Private commission. Fun piece to paint. I chose to stick the characters in a dried out baobab tree as Ive done so many deep foliage pieces and didn't want it to seem repetitive. Baobabs are HUGE trees that litter the African plains. Since they soak up so much water they serve as a water source for the elephants who tear the bark off to reach the fluid within, draining them dry in the process and leaving shredded husks behind. I also kept the palette extremely subdued to indicate a dry, arid environment. I had originally intended to add a monkey carcass under the leopard's paw to give the impression that Tarzan and Jane had interrupted his lunch but the client thought it might be a bit too graphic and we agreed to leave it out.
