"So", said the old toadstool to the young elf-girl Niessa, "You don't believe in taupoiseaux? They do exist you know, I've seen them numerous times." Niessa just giggled quietly.

Suddenly the strange looking flowerbud opened up to reveal an even odder looking flower and out came a plump bundle of feathers with a bright orange beak. It flew right into Niessa's face, making her lean back a bit startled. Just then she saw the strange creature had one eye.

"Let me get a good look of you," it spoke in a singing voice, "well, so that's what an elf looks like, you know, I didn't think elfs existed and there you have it."

Pencil and watercolor, modified slightly using PSP 9.

This is cute. It reminds me of the scene of Alice in wonderland when she meets the unicorn.

Hey, Het is best mooi en het tekstje boven de tekening vind ik best wel grappig. Alleen doet ze wel iets raars met haar armen 2 Voor de rest is het wel een goede tekening 12. Zoals je ziet ben ik ook nederlandstalig (Vlaams eigenlijk) en geloof het of niet, mijn naam is ook Joyce xD. Nee, echt ik lieg niet. Tenzij mijn identiteitskaart en mijn ouders míj voorliegen 2.

:-) Joyce van Denzen replies: "Klopt, haar rechterarm is te lang, en ze buigen net wat fout.Ik geloof je op je woord hoor 1"
