I don’t even know where this idea came from, I think I thought about it one morning when I was half asleep. I feel like it has a “Little red riding hood” and “Thumbelina” twist in a way. It could be symbolic of innocence; A small girl going out and discovering the dangers of the big big world. I feel like it may have also been inspired slightly by a game called “Little Nightmares”, which I recommend to anyone who loves a good horror genre.
The flowers are from a photograph I took in my mums friends garden. I started off with pencil, photographed the images and Photoshopped the colour in. I want to make more images like this, maybe I’ll link my next illustration in with this one. I really hope you enjoy this illustration as much as I did making it!
