Star Princess - Hedgehog King by maina Star Princess - Hedgehog King by maina
"The Star Princess and The Hedgehog King"

"... her shyness didn't betray her beauty. Her crown was glowing of a thousand stars and her dragonfly-wing cape, of a million colors. The Hedgehog King took her soft hand into his own and invited her to follow him in his realm."


Not too long ago I wondered: "If I had a princess fairytale to write and draw about, what would it be?" And this particular drawing is what came into my mind. I haven't build up a full story, mind you, but just looking at this image gives me tons of ideas. Kinda like a muse to me; this picture says it all about me and about what I want to be able to do later. It's not perfect, but it speaks a lot.

And yes, the hedgehog's crown is a pine cone. XD

Note: The colors aren't acurate. They are lighter than the original. I'm having a hard time scanning it correctly. Her dress is actually with tones of blue, pink and purple hues. =/ Sorry about that!
