The Goose Girl Cover by fabiolagarza The Goose Girl Cover by fabiolagarza
Yay!! Art for me :D Shannon is lovely and I can't believe I missed her when she was on the East Coast.

This was done in this kind of watercolor-gouache paint (Pelikan Opaque Pain Set).

Just got a book of grim fairy tails illustrated by Rackham. I loved this story in it and I think you captured the princess perfectly.

I love the colors you chose for this, especially for her hair. I've been re-reading the book lately and forgot how amazing Shannon's writing is. Honestly, I feel that if I were to ever do fanart of her work, I would have to make it sing, just the way her writing sings. Your fanart of the Goose Girl is the only fanart that has done that for me.
