Things start to clear up, and my sketches, one by one, are turned into full-color illustrations. The king shouldn’t talk to this woman! She’s a witch, and soon she will destroy the whole royal family (except baby boy, who will be saved by his nun) and overtake the kingdom.
I’ve got a job to do again, one of these dull things coming from the publishing house I work for; holiday’s over… and I’ve got a fairytale to illustrate for a friend, too. I’m going to come back to this topic, but at the moment I’m too confused: someone’s parents get changed into sth else, nun hides in the forest, a little boy pretends he’s a little girl, an now a crocodile entered the stage! And a squirrel. My friend hasn’t had time yet to explain it properly, she’s just sending short descriptions of scenes she wants me to sketch. I don’t want to complain, but our cooperation is a bit like playing blind man’s buff and perhaps I will illustrate different story then the one she writes. Well, tonight I’ve made a break and I’ve come back to my Zodiac series. It seems so wonderfully uncomplicated! The Leo is a present for my other friend, zodiacal lioness, so her name is included.
This is a fast drawing for a DA group contest (fast, because the contest ends tomorrow). The subject is “Forest Life” (more information: http://sharpenededge.deviantart.com).
Forest pixies, who live on trees, move freely in their environment due to strong claws on their feet. They can even walk upside down, as you can see here; this is pixie family emigrating to another branch. Pixies can’t be spotted easily, their hair makes them look like moss or lichen. This is their unique mimicry method; elves pretend to be butterflies (see the elf specimen on the right side of the picture). Pixies are still active this time of a year; they eat a lot and give noisy parties. In the end of November they will fall in winter sleep.
Hello! My name is Joanna (in short form: Asia) I live in Jura Upland (Poland) and I work at home, doing things for a publishing house. English is not my native language, but I want to practise writing in it – one of important goals of this blog! Sorry in advance for all mistakes I’ll make. What else do I want to do with this blog? Well, some of my drawings will show here, I guess. My hobby is to illustrate fairytales and children books that everybody knows, or to draw scenes from pixies/elves/dwarves life.
