A self-portrait made for the Fairytale Makeover project. [link]
The glowing little girl being painted to life is inspired by John Bauer's Princess Tuvstarr.
Tried another technique for this, values + overlay colors instead of the other way around as I usually go about painting. I'm actually very pleased with how it came out; no textures or brushes (aside from the chain-brush which I made myself), just hand painted all the way through. Will probably play around more with this technique. Fun fact: I actually own those viking style hairpins; [link] - they come in bone or horn and were designed by myself.
