Tarzan Rescues the Moon

ChrisLAdams 30 Mar 2021

I enjoy painting scenes from stories; this is another one based on Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan novel, Jungle Tales, a collection of stories about the adolescent Tarzan. In this story, a lunar eclipse was occurring. Tarzan's ape tribe feared the moon, an object of worship they referred to as Goro, was being devoured by lions. They called upon Tarzan to rescue the moon; answering the call, the boy-Tarzan scales a tall tree and fires into the night sky.... It was a fun project, and maybe the first time I'd used masking paint (to hide Tarzan and his tree while I painted a fiery blood moon).

At first, I thought of Mowgli when seeing this! That sun so mcuh attracts the ye that I almost did not see those monkeys in the tree!
Great painting and story Chris!
