Mustashrik said...

more brilliance from drazen! nice ;)

Drazen said...

Thanks folks!
knottydon- I built that wall with my two bare hands![ using a wacom]

Amazing work. Nice nostalgic look. The frog gets a little lost though.

Drazen said...

thanks Guy.
Yeah i agree with you about the poor froggy.
I still have some finishing up to do on this picture and originally that hill was going to be a bit more grey blue
but I think the wee froggy is doomed to be a bit lost.
He stood out more when the bg was just white with no rolling hills. I'm going to try and bring him out a bit more.

Still, another gem, Draz! How dooo you do it?!?!?!

Ah yes...the froggie can dream, but the lady doesn't look too thrilled! Silly girl; she might be missing out on something. As always, you've captured the topic with your hypnotik eye...a bit of whimsy and humor to add another dimension to the theme. I adore your characters! I just love their attenuated bodies and their marvelous facial expressions.

Drazen, you continue to amaze me. My favorite part is the town buildings. Wonderful rendering throughout the image.
Best,
Steve

Drazen said...

Thanks Carla, Smook, Steve!
Stef- its drawn and inked by hand but digital colouring.
Thanks Josh.
vfm4- you never know, she just might! Thats great you loved Diary of a Fairy Godmother. I loved working on the book and the story as well. I was real happy with the printing too.

Uloo said...

Love the colors in this piece, Drazen. Such a nice treatment of the topic, too. I'm not sure if that frog's a prince, but I'm sure you are one.

Fulton Beal said...

Ye sit with a wince,
But I'd be a prince
If only for one little thing
A peck on the cheek
One kiss small and meek
And surely I'd make your heart sing

Excellent work Drazen. For some reason I'm reminded of an old Rocky and Bullwinkle segment, Fractured Fairy Tales I think it was. Anyway, great stuff, keep 'em coming :)
