I was thinking of “Grave of the Fireflies” while drawing this; the shortness of life, and also the “Deportation Memorial” in France.

  1. lovely lovely lovely! i was wondering how you got the glow effect on the hair? what did you use? it’s beautiful/magical.xx

    • Thank you – you’re so sweet!! Um, the hair was painted on with watered down sumi ink, on ungessoed canvas, and the way it dried actually caused a lot of the pigment to gravitate to the edges, making it a lighter gray in the middle. The stars are painted on with acrylic paint. 🙂
