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^-

As one who loves fantasy and believes in the sheer power of magic and imagination, I will say that this piece is just stunning, wonderful, and overall amazing! 

Keep the magic alive, my friend :)

I know my reply is a little on the late side, but I must say thank you! I firmly believe we have to keep the magic alive too. Let's keep believing, shall we? :)

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

Any magical place is better with chickens no!? XDDD
Me neither actually. xD
But I really loved the theme of the contest, so WHY NOT! :XD:
