My entry for "A Star For a Heart" contest hosted by :iconeshkenazi:
There's still time for more entries, go check it out here! [link]

The prompt: Once there was a girl who was born from a stone and she had star for a heart. One day she met a boy and put her heart in his hands. And it was magic.

Since the girl is born from a stone, it would make sense that she is small, so I made her a little stone faerie. Gives a new meaning to the term "precious stone," hee. She's a shy little thing... ^__^ My friend Kelly helped me come up with the idea. The background is meant to suggest a heart-shape. And look, I drew a boy without elf ears! *gasp*
(Batty: Aahh! Human!)

Took about three days total from sketch to painting. Pencil and Photoshop. I need more practice drawing children, heh.

So sweet and gorgeous. Great work.
This is fantastic. The boy looks really good. I've been struggling to draw childrens' proportions myself. Not so easy.

An eight year old boy and a tiny naked fairy? This can't end well. (spoken by someone who used to be an eight year old boy)

But seriously though, beautiful drawing.

They both look perfectly childlike to me (coming from a mama to five). I love how she is looking away from what she is offering him, so sweet.

"Star for a heart," huh? I wonder how many people submitted Howl's Moving Castle fanart to that one?

I love the lighting in this.
