A Book Comes to Life by Fleurdelyse A Book Comes to Life by Fleurdelyse
Done in late 2007. It was an art class assignment in which we had to carry out in the style of M.C. Escher. I was particularly inspired by his piece "Reptiles."

Prismacolor Pencils on cardstock, scanned, then digitally enhanced in Photoshop.


Edit: Thank you so much for the DD! I really appreciate it. :)

I was going around searching for a good example of colouring for a small drawing of mine.
This isn't at all what I was searching for, but it's simply too beautiful, too lovely, and I really had to leave at least a few words of compliments about it. The idea is funny, if not original, and you put a delicate, gentle touch on your colouring, on your lines; your colours are bright and soft at the same time. The dragon half inside the paper, half already coming out, it's the best part of the whole drawing. Straight into favourites!
