Artwork Description

Well I wanted to do a really nice all out piece and hopefully I suceeded some.

This is for *Audley 's art contest on DeviantArt to win a Pullip doll.

The contest is to draw any illustration or inspired art for their simple and beauituful fairytale, Misery and Gloom.

Just to get an idea of the story... Gloom is the daughter of the beautiful Prince of the Ills, Sorrow, and Grief. Anything around her greys and decays, and due to this she is banished to the gardens where one day she meets the Joy, one of the "other" princes. I had the strongest visual image at this moment when he's holding out the rose, and she reaches to touch it (even if it dies at her touch). I think it shows a hint of what she is to become by the end of the story.

Charming gallery. I particularly like your use of muted colours.

Beautiful drawing. I think you have the emotions and personalities down well. I hope Joy prevails!

Art at its best.
