When I do this picture, I want to creat an mood like I feel when I watch the movie 'The Dark Crystal' by Jim Henson. So, I place in a wood a gelfling-like musician surrounded by many muppet- like creatures listening to her. I do this picture with coulor pen and pastel on a green paper. I use computer to creat the light halo effect. Dimensions : 24 x 32 cm

Somehow this picture almost gives me the feeling of a Siren... A beautiful voice meant to lure travelers into the woods where they shall be lost, just as the Siren's of myth led sailors to their deaths on rocks. It's not quite the same as the Dark Crystal, but its a very powerful image.

I was listening to dance of the sugar plum faeries when I was looking at this... it was so eerie! The fae looks like she's a zombie... but the lighting is just beautiful. There is definately an eerie feeling about this, in a beautiful way.

I remember the Dark Crystal... I think... something about a boy and some monster thingies that looked like birds, and scared the crap outta me ( I think I was 7 the last time I saw it)... tho I don't remember any scenes like this. But anyways. Its well done, and I love the coloring

I love that movie! And you got the face exactly right, although she looks really intense because of the eyes...
