This the Night Queen from "The Magic Flute" story. I had to design the costume that would fit the character. The part of the challenge was to combine two fashioneras, my picks were Victorian and Ancient Greek, and come up with an interesting design.
"Go away snails! There is nothing to see around here!"
This one took me 3 afternoons to paint.. I know i'm not fast -.-''. there are much details that took me a long time, particularly the shell of the snails got me crazy xD. I tried hard to devellop a scene where all the creatures would look like they were part of it and not from elsewhere.
Hope you enjoy it!

********* edit: Thank you so much 3wyl for suggesting this piece and Thiefoworld for the DD I can't believe I have got one! Thank you very much!
the cats, eyes of the countess, share one fate with the rain, namely the fact that both are mere phantoms in existance of novere to dirty its beauty that once was. maybe their society does not realize that both is nothing but a mirror of their heart's ugliness and on top of that all caused by themselves and their own misdeeds.
... and odette has nothing to do with this, i just wanted to draw odette (on right). and try to paint. and... um... i really like desaturated things. okay, maybe odette has something to do with this, i guess metaphorically speaking she'd reflect their country's dirty secrets, their ugliness, really well. also the cats, eyes of the countess, know her filthy secrets.

WHAT THE EFF I GOT A DD
OH MY GOD MORIS ILU ;_______; AKLKFLSFSDFSDLSK ok i shut up now and gosh, i really don't like this picture very much AT ALL anymore and i drew it when i had little to no clue about painting months ago buut... DAMN, i'm happy regardless (and because i can draw it at least ten times better now, but this should happen eventually when i have more time and energy XD) thank you !
My take on the flying whales. Ok, basically when you feed your whale, it can fly. Now, about the weird glowing tatoos on their skin : No one knows how to speak Whale. So the Whale People use star dust paint to write whale words in order to communicate with those strange animals. The words usually speak a direction, a place, a pace, an altitude and an attitude. As long as the Whale People will keep feeding their Whales, their Whales shall listen to the words.
I'll develop the Whale People's story later~ Good night !
"Atlantis tatoos and journey scarfs" Yeah, I've probably been inspired
