I really like the way the dark colors evoke grief, and the composition is dramatic. Nice illo!

I can really feel the sadness in the illustration. This is what I call a word picture. I love it when I I feel the mood of an Illustration. Great work again!

I agree, your illos are full of feeling and expression. I think it comes in part from your rich colors, the way they bleed and blend. A very sad and moving Thumbelina...

I love your watercolor technique in this piece. Everything seems so simplified so that you are left with just emotion. Great work.
