A Dark Kingdom: art for a storybook

Currently, I am working on images for a series of kids stories. One of these stories will be about a prideful king outlawing Christmas and everything it stands for. He forbids colours and merriment throughout his realm. Then, after many years, an old musician returns from a far away journey to bring back hope to the dark kingdom.
