The Young King by mebeme14 The Young King by mebeme14
The story by Oscar Wilde which I was entrusted to illustrate was ‘The Young Kin.’ It is a tale of a teenage king who is dazzled by his beautiful palace and the shiny things in it but through three dreams during the night before his coronation, he chooses to not use his new crown, sceptre, and golden robe because of the deaths and sorrow the items have caused. Instead he goes to his coronation in his goat’s shepherds garb (before he was known to be the heir to the throne, this was his profession). The people are disappointed with him and wish to kill him but in front of the alter he is crowned King by God (given even a robe made of the golden rays of sunshine).
I especially enjoyed drawing the background for this thing. My reference:
