I recognize this fairy tale. The girl in the red dress is the mean sister - the one who spews toads and vipers from her mouth.

This is a definite fav! The queen's dress really makes her stand out from the rest of the picture (which you probably intended), and I love the little frog to her side.

Out of curiosity, who's the little sylvan-looking person in the lower left?

That's the fairy in the story who curses the girl. When she speaks toads and vipers fall out of her mouth. Her younger sister, however, spits out diamonds and roses. It's a really weird little fairy tale.

Actually, that story sounds really familiar! I think I've read it before...

LOL. :D I love her expression and the cuts and bite marks on her skin. The elf on the side is neat. I like how her hair is yellow and transcends into green at the tips. You have an awesome command of gauche, I still can't get the hand of it. I keep trying to layer it like oil paint.

My strength is in washes. I usually do a hack job of oils. Though I am starting to get a hang of some of the glazing techniques.
