A Little Girl's Journey by Snow-the-Wanderer A Little Girl's Journey by Snow-the-Wanderer
Whoa, this took forever to complete but I'm so glad to finally have it done! C:

This is my entry to DA's James and the Giant Peach contest which I really wanted to enter because I loved the idea behind it. :)

This is my sort of escape, a huge amazing and magical place... free from reality! I love the idea of going to bed one day and then finding myself falling through the sky into this fantastical place! I loved the pillow as well; I think it's cute that she's riding on a giant feather that came from her own pillow. Oh yeah, and the chicken. I just adore the chicken with the goggles! Chickens make for great companions, no? :XD:

All in all, I think we all really want to escape into a fantasy, just a different sort for everyone. My personal fantasy is something like this; full of magic, crystals, wonky windmills, dragons and general fantasy. :D

I hope you all enjoy this picture as much as I did making it! -^o^-

I looked at a lot of photos and other pictures beforehand! :> And as for ideas on the bg, me and my sis brainstormed on a lot of cool scenarios for "escaping reality"! :)
Like feathers, crystals, dragons... It was really fun!! :tighthug:

Wow this is really, really nice. Never really wanted to watch the movie but this is awesome, I do agree on the magical place thing, wished one could go to one of those and simply chill there, with chickens XD

Flying on feathers? It's like you read my mind. Actually I don't like chickens very much but maybe that's because I got chased by one when I was little. But maybe it's because that chicken wasn't wearing goggles. I like how the pastel colors feel all hazy and dreamlike. It's like my body is awake but this drawing made my brain fall asleep. Love the way the clouds were done. I'm one of those people who always stare at the sky. I like fantasy crystals that emit their own glow so I'm missing that. Congratulations on reaching the semi-finals!

Hahaha, yes I know what you mean! My mom hates chickens too; for that very reason!! But I'm sure it would've been different if the chicken had googles! ;)

Really, thank you so much for such an amazing comment! It really encourages me to work harder! :love: :heart:

Don't worry, it just takes a lot of practice! A lot of my earlier colouring is not that good----keep going! :meow:

My colouring still has a long way to go, but thank you all the same!! :hug:
