Reading all the great comments and positive responds to the first 2 images form this project made me so overwhelmed and happy that I just wanted to share with you another image from it!

As there is no way I could possibly sit down and thank each and everyone of you, giving you more of my art is my humble way to thank you all :hug:

:heart: David

Amazing use of colour, love the sky and the overall attention to detail. Even small details like the castle in the background are shown and teeny tiny trees :)

Everything looks so delicate and realistic.

I love Disney and your work is amazing, I have aspirations myself to work for them, but you should definitely get an application in! .. your work is incredible, you would be a great addition to the disney team :D

I also don't agree how they are losing some of their originality (disney) in how they have moved from traditional hand-drawn animation to this computer generated stuff :( still amazing, but disney calls for some original talent like yours!

All the best,

Rachel :)

How cute :heart: I think this is my favorite of the three I've seen for the moment ! Is this the illustration for "Le lièvre et la tortue" ? If it is it's really fitting the fable ! Good job, keep up the good work ! :iconcheerplz:

Is it sort of used to be Holland? Because de La Fontaine is French, but the other things looks like Holland clishé's xD Love it! My dad was used to read me those when I was younger..

The art of course is gorgeous. The backgrounds are beautiful, and the small scene with the characters is definitely enough to 'hook' me into wanting to know more about it. I'm unsure as of the dutch theme of the piece, as the story is attributed to Aesop (greek). It's definitely an interesting take on the fable, and purists might wonder where the shell of the tortoise is and why is the tortoise a female running against a male hare. Either way, you know that when someone starts wondering what something is about he is definitely hooked (like I am). Amazing work, as always.

If the Hare was human he'd be gorgeous! He's gorgeous as a hare anyways though.
I'm loving these illustrations

gosh that rabbit look so HOT!!! how is this possible??? HOW????
brissygirl Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2010
Words can't express how utterly adorable this is. I love the casualness that the Hare has, and the Turtle dressed as a little dutch girl is priceless! I particularly like the little snail, who seems to be listening intently to the conversation between the Tortoise and the Hare.

The colours are gorgeous, and the windmill. I'm not sure if that's a city of a palace off in the distance, but it looks amazing too.
rasenth Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2010
I'm starting to think that this is possibly a children's picture book? :0
