A: Spread 6, Layer 1: Detail by Himmapaan A: Spread 6, Layer 1: Detail by Himmapaan
To wish you a happy New Year of the non-saurian kind.

Detail of the first layer of spread 6 of Aladdin, published by Walker Books, 2011. A few watchers may recall this closer detail of Aladdin's robe which was submitted a while ago.

Ink and gouache on Arches hot pressed, 140lb/300gsm. The entire spread is fairly long, but for an approximate measure of this particular section, hopefully the penny in the link above might serve.

The book itself works rather like a theatre and is best seen in person. This photograph gives some idea of how it looks. Other snippets of artwork for this book are in this folder.

Available from Amazon (do please rally round to purchase it and help out a poverty-stricken artist...).

And don't forget, adding this to a 'fan art' collection will prompt me to send a hoard of mutant parasitic wasps to eat you from inside out... ;)

I must get this book. :omg: I MUST. :love:

I imagine if I ever attempted the same, it wouldn't ever look half this immaculate, and I imagine I'd destroy too many brushes in the process, which would break my heart. :noes: In fact, I don't think I know anyone else who could do this justice like you have done.

I want to illustrate this parasitic wasp punishment for some reason... Oh dear! :XD:

I want you to know that the same day you posted the project identity I went out and bought a copy from Amazon. The book really is beautiful in person; I've made everyone in my house sit down and really LOOK at it until they understood the level of detail you poured into it.

This is so beautiful - I wish I could find it in a bookstore over here or on Amazon (US). Might break down and pay the crazy shipping to get it from the UK, lol. It'd be worth it to see the gorgeousness in person!

Here's hoping that you are less poverty-stricken in this new year, my friend.

Hopefully, it should become available in the US too at some point!

Sadly, it is because I will be poverty-stricken this year that I had to make the extra plea. >_<

I did indeed use the Qing dynasty as the basis, yes. Upon which I embroidered a few artistic and 'storybook-world' touches. :D
