Gorgeous watercolor! Is this from a fairytale or one of your own stories? :)

This is absoultly beautiful. The man who seems as if he is trying to take the girl away combined with the dark color scheme of reds, browns, and blacks, gives the picture the feel as if it the end to something or the begining. Though an end and a begining are really the same thing.

Oh well you've pulled it off beautifully!! It has a Rackham flare but is your own style at the same time ^-^ I'm rather jealous!!! :)

Erm..in the Artist's Comments, it says "and the bird spoke to her"...I assume that that was a reference to something; may I ask what it was?

Hello, thanks so much for the nice comments. :)
Yes I am greatly inspired by british victorian illustrators, like Rackham.
So I chose this setting too and gave the man english clothing of 19th century. : D

Thank you for the comment. Yes I was highly influenced by Arthur Rackham. I am a big admirer of his works. : D
It's great that someone noticed, it's a shame that many people today don't know about him.
