For day 26 of my April Fairy Tale challenge I drew Thumbelina.Got the third Hans Christian Andersen Story in a row today with Thumbelina!

Since most of Thumbelina is a “Pearls of Pauline” style travelogue, this was another story with lots of options to work with. I was really tempted to do the scene with her and the Mole but I wasn’t sure anyone who only had the basic knowledge of the story would know what it was all about. So I went with the beginning of the story with Thumbelina appearing in the flower.

Maybe it’s just me having read way too much manga lately, but looking at this picture after I finished it, I’m seeing an unintentional Attack on Titan vibe. Don’t worry the nice old lady isn’t going to eat Thumbelina.
