Thumbelina by hellcorpceo Thumbelina by hellcorpceo
Exceedingly late entry for *jisuk's Broken Spell card deck. I've been fiddling with this thing for what seems like a million and a half years, arrrrgh. Version 1 got scrapped--this is version 2 with inspiration from Mucha.

Very pretty. I like how the swallow wraps around Thumbelina like her shawl does - it creates a lovely, soft, warm feel to the image.

I love the art work.
The lines, the color, the texture, the shading is perfect.
This scene with Jacqamo always made me sad.

The colours, lines...sooo beautifull.
Great art. Somehow it reminds me
of Mucha character, without all the
decor. Maybe the colours.

It isn't so sad! The bird is actually okay--in the story, she nurses him back to health, and then he flies her away to live with the fairies. :B

The flow of line and texture in this is gorgeous! I simply love the muted color palette choice. I see an overlaid texture for the bg, did you use one for the girl & the bird as well.

Beautiful! :+favlove:

The variation of the line widths gives this piece an art noveau, stain-glassish look. It's gorgeous, and she looks so sad!

and even though Jacamo the robin always kindof scared me (like the frogs and the beetle) you drew them so prettily... so I really like it!

did you take reference from a story book? I can still remember the bird and the mothers clothing and hair from this pic; and also the pose, without the handkerchief and the straws of grass
