"BFG" Background Painting

For my background painting class, we had to design layouts for Roal Dahl's children's book "The BFG" (Big Friendly Giant).

Story Synopsis: Written by Cynan Rees
Sophie is snatched from her orphanage early one morning by the BFG (Big Friendly Giant), whom she witnesses engaged in mysterious activities, and whisked away to Giant Country. She is soon put at ease, as she learns that BFG's job is to collect, catalogue and deliver pleasant dreams to children. She joins him that night, but the mean giants follow them, planning to eat the children. Sophie enlists the help of the Queen, by making up a dream for her, and with the backing of the armed forces, they defeat the mean giants.

The scene that I chose to depict was when the Bloodbottler, an evil giant counterpart of BFG, accuses BFG of hiding a human in his cave. Terrified for Sophie's safety, the BFG denies the accusation, but Bloodbottler doesn't buy it. He becomes more angry and threatens to kill the BFG and destroy his cave!
