Creating art based on your favourite fantasy novels can lead to great results.
We've chosen something a little different for today's Image of the Day; what do you think of Armored Bears by Angela Rizza?
This piece is based on Philip Pullman's beloved novel The Golden Compass (or Northern Lights depending on where you read it). Angela's unique illustrative approach really comes to fruition here, with subtle texture flourishes and a relaxed painting style adding to the final effect.
There are many other great images based on modern and classic fantasy novels over in Angela's gallery, including several quirky Harry Potter pieces. Click here to see more.
