The Painted Kingdom by golden-quince The Painted Kingdom by golden-quince
A place where I get lost quite a lot. A place where forgotten sons and daughters are given the power to speak to birds in the sky and fish in the sea, where they sometimes fall in love with bears and blue-bearded men and maidens spinning golden thread in caves. Where the silver-horned unicorn and the owl seer reside...where warty-nosed witches live in houses of sugar and stardust and raven-haired queens with skin like glass transform into a thousand thousand luna moths at the stroke of midnight ...where anything you can imagine is possible and nothing is ever what it seems...

Watercolor on super-crappy paper.

So lovely! And you have such control of your medium—you say it's on crappy paper, but I can't tell the illustration is so wonderful. I also enjoyed what you posted about this piece. Congrats on the DD!
