Very nice image Lisa--I like the movement of the cloth being placed over the bird. The bird is very well done.

Very sweet illustration! Very moving the desire to cover him up and keep him warm some how. This is a beautiful piece. It's so great to see a different approach to illustrating this story. Great job!

Oh this is lovely - and so sad and poetic - it's also really soft and calm and soothing - beautiful illustration!

Yes, there's something really moving and sad about how you have Thumbelina covering the bird, such tenderness in her actions. It's a lovely piece, with soft, controlled washes. I like how everyone can think of a scene and depict and so many different and wonderful ways...

I like your use of color, and I really like how the grass adds the extra dimension to show how small she is.
