I wonder what Fairy tale is she reading?

Maybe one of the stories by Diana Wynne Jones.

Kinda wish someone narrated this as Meiling with Tewi, Kagerou, Cirno, and Rumia(?) asking what happens next and/or just reacting.
U-Joe's avatar
Tewi, Chen, Cirno and yes, Rumia.

Yes, that woman who created "Howl's Moving Castle"... Did I write her name wrong? o0

No, you spelled it right.

Meiling is such a sweetheart!

Very nice job, and nice details on the carpet as well.
U-Joe's avatar
Thank you.
>>Meiling is such a sweetheart!
It was difficult to draw her more or less properly. Friends was criticizing me constantly. "Man, her mouth is too large, you draw a girl, not darn shark!" or "Redraw her nose immediately, she's Chinese, not a Gipsy!". Without their advices the result would be awful.

Your friends sound a bit mean! :( (Not to be insulting, of course.) It's nice that they help you out, however, as long as they are helping you out and not picking your work apart. ;)

You're very welcome, by the way - the tone you created with the dim lights and indoor, living room setting is fantastic. :)

Thanks goodness, they are seldom really pick my works apart. Maybe it is because I immediately explode in such moments. ^^'
Some day I'll try to draw some interiors again. It is difficult for me to draw them but I bested it once, and I should best it again.
ShadowMKII's avatar
Hahaha, I see :D

Well, I think you can. Keep it up! :)

This looks really good. ^^

now, judging from the appearance, would the other characters be Tewi, Chen, Keine, and Mokou? Never been good at guessing characters, but just wanted to see if I was right.
U-Joe's avatar
Thanks a lot.
You've guessed right two of them, Tewi and Chen. The third one is Cirno (it's difficult to recognize her, sorry; the only things that can help you are haircut and her bow). The fourth one is Rumia (short blonde hair and red ribbon).
Jayoshi36's avatar
Ahh, I see. I was wondering why Keine and Mokou would be at their house. =P And it makes a lot more sense for the other two to be there, even. I should've paid more attention to the hair lengths. XD

U-Joe this is truly wonderful. The detail in this picture is magnificent and you can see it in every corner. Meiling's dress is very beautiful and I definitely love the style of it. And that carpet is just so breathtaking. Overall, you have truly succeeded in spreading the warmth! :)

Also, the picture of Meiling is super cute! :)

Meiling seems like a warm soul.
U-Joe's avatar
I've always imagined her like that.
