Princesse Petit Pois by zancan Princesse Petit Pois by zancan
Inspired by the tale The Princess and the Pea, this drawing was made for a contest called "Ma Bulle" for the convention Art to Play (next November ). The artists had to draw a A4-sized picture where a blank space was left for a face, a character.

My own princess, Vanessa, who posed for me has a very fragile spine, which causes her many concerns. But oh, she also loves to party, and when she does, she can fall sleep on a stack of breeze-blocks :)

The drawing was done in two evenings ( plus a few more hours). First day for drawing and ink, and the second one for coloring which was done which Photoshop.

*liked it?* Vote for this drawing on facebook!

i remember this story (the princess and the pea)--just not so sexy of a version.

I really like this piece I think the details add a nice touch with the wine glasses. Its so pretty and sort of dark at the same time:).

...also, perspective-wise, I don't think we'd see the foot of the bed that's in the back underneath the bed, it seems to be coming out of the middle of the bed instead of the corner... but anyways, I love this picture to death!!!!!

Awww, if you could draw a zebra stuffed into the empty space, change the wine glasses to pill bottles, and change the wording on the picture art to something else, it'd be absolutely spot-on as a symbol for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. I have the hypermobility type, and getting to sleep is absurd, because any little thing will cause me to have to shift to get comfortable, then shift again when my bones settle too much and threaten to go out of socket. I laugh at my self for acting like the princess and the pea every single night!!!!
