This was my entry for A World of Fantasy Contest over at ArtByMalloryMorsa :heart: and oh my god, i won judge's choice!!! Amazing...i am so happy right now :love:

(This was also my entry for the "Treasure Hunt" contest held by CearaFinn in which i won the photo-manip section :w00t: )

An adventure has to have ingredients of excitement and fun, and with enough imagination one can read a book of old pirate stories and treasure hunts and make it come alive! I knew i wanted to do a little child reading a book about treasure and pirates and that the story comes alive becasue of his wild imagination, and when i found the absolutely perfect stock of the little boy reading the book i knew that the picture i had in mind would be possible to do!

Children has no limit to their imagination, i think that is why i love picturing children in fantasy themes and fairytales. Hope you like :D

Aww, this is beautiful. It made me tear up a little bit at the beauty behind this piece: a little boy letting his imagination take hold of him as he reads about adventure and pirates and the seas. Kudos for making a wonderful piece come to life. :)

Beautiful work. It really captures a book's ability to snatch you away from reality. <3
