This is an entry for a fairy tale contest. I decided to illustrate the little match girl, although it is a very sad fairy tale, because I have many memories attached to this story.
It was the first fairy tale I enacted on the stage in my first year at the ballet school. I remember very happily that show, although I was risking to dance my piece alone, since my partner didn't show up in the end -__-: I interpreted one of the angels who cast a magic spell on the little match girl matches, to make her dream come true. Fortunately, the teacher found a replacement for the other angel, and this girl was pretty diligent, since she learned all the piece in two days. :D
I really love that show! Even though it's nothing special from a technical point of view, it will remain a milestone in my life. Also because the teacher, some years later, would find out that I can be also a devilish girl, if you get me angry! :XD:
Well, jokes asides, hope you like the drawing, although it came out completely different from what i had planned, and in case you don't remember the story, here it is a plot summary [link] ! ;)

It's also one of my favourite fairy tales. And though you didn't focus on the tragic side of the story, you did well showing her dreams, specially with the colors you used!

Devilish...mmm...not much. I tend to drive my art teachers insane, because I suddenly start experimenting with the materials and ideas they just gave me!!! I constantly suprise them...or goof up in my quest for new ideas...and it gets crazy.
