On the Hook by Fiction69 On the Hook by Fiction69
This is an illustration for Neil Gaiman's July Tale, a part of the project A Calendar of Tales in which I took a part. Imaginary fish and igloo made of books included!
Also, Neil chose the first version, which basically was a wip, but it was in purple colours, and that's a huge advantage, if you ask me. Anyway, yeah! Neil Gaiman, huh?

tumblr post ♥ and here's the book version

UPD: I got my first DD! I'm so happy I can't even express it, thank you so much, guys! Oh you guys! :hug:

You can buy lots of my stuff on redbubble or society6, like iphone cases, posters and even pillows! They are utterly cool! :frail:

The suggester said "The exquisite color palette, the fascinating creature design and the lighting really bring out the fantasy element of the piece, giving it a dreamlike aura. I love how the different elements combine to give the piece such unique mood." On the Hook by Fiction69 ( Suggested by DanielleIvanova and Featured by Astralseed )

I'd imagine that trying to pull one of those big fish through the ice would probably break it, and at least one of those fish look carnivorous, which only adds to the scariness if you ask me XD

If that was reality, I'd be even more intimidated by the waters than I already am. Aside from that, this looks really beautiful and super creative! A deserved DD indeed (^_^)
