A kind of redraw of a Christmas artwork I did in 2015, based on the story "The Little Match Girl" by Hans Christian Andersen. :) Perhaps this is just a gentle reminder to myself to appreciate how far I've come and how much I have to be thankful for, as well as to give to those who don't have much this Christmas. I encourage you guys to look up this story and read it. Happy Holidays!

The old version; that style has its own charm but I think this new one is more fitting for the story.

It was one of my favorite storie as a child <3. My mother didn't like reading it to me though, because it's so sad (and I can see it now). But at the time, what mattered to me was that, in the end, she was with her Grand-ma. And probably that, no matter how hard the world was to her, she was still able to dream and endure =D.

The illustration is very beautifull, thanks for sharing it <3. It was a nice memory, and I had forgoten about it =D

Thanks so much for sharing your memory. :) It's a bittersweet story for sure, and I'm glad you like my illustration of it.

I used to love the story as a child and I was just thinking about it a few days ago. This fits perfectly.

Another beautiful work~
I checked out the first version, too, it is also pretty, but this one seems to be more delicate and has stronger, more emotional tone
