Coraline's Tea Party by ashphoenix Coraline's Tea Party by ashphoenix
mmmyep. I loved "Coraline" by Neil Gaiman, and I felt like drawing this. I wasn't all that sure about sharing it, but what the hell...
Coraline and the rest of it is the intellectual property of Neil Gaiman and whoever his publisher is. I just drew this....

[link] I really love this... there's not a lot of art that's based on the book instead of the movie, and this piece is gorgeous and evocative. Love it!

That hand, with its loose skin and trailing sinews, is both beautiful and one of the most disgusting things ever. I commend you.

I have just recently read Coraline for the first time--I'm slowly diving deeper into Gaiman's works--and I am amazed by this. The style reminds me a lot of some of the older children's books I have, with the minimal coloring merely accenting the artwork. I love that you chose to do the tea party, the set up is amazing, framed as you have it by the disembodied hand. I'd say more about what is going on and how appropriate I find it, but ruining books for others is not my style...

...I really love it, though I must say I did giggle at it. All I could think of was that the hand was going 'I'm crushing your head!' and pinching the fingers at a distance...
