Button up your overcoat by lily-fox Button up your overcoat by lily-fox
My friend Claire and Stanley Tucci as Mr. Tumnas, because of reasons.

Fauns don't wear coats often, so fauns need help buttoning their coats.

I remember that series! I think we watched it in school. I remember being seriously freaked out by the Snow Queen, and I think we were all traumatized by Aslan being killed. That shit is way too heavy for grade-schoolers.

Oh, yeah. I was usually pretty tough about that stuff - like, I've always really liked things that made me emotional. Aslan's death and rebirth is ingrained into my memory forever in any case. Aaaah I wanna watch it all again.

As much as I loathe the cold, this piece is particularly heart-warming and seeing a frosty background is actually a bit refreshing amid the humidity! Fantastic job, as always, love, and I have to say the matching coat and hat are absolutely darling!!

I've read it/seen it, but this is just my friend Claire, who really likes Stanley Tucci and Mr. Tumnas, so I drew her with a Tucci-Tumnas. :)

Saw the pic featured a snowy forest and a faun. My mind was instantly drawn to The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe.

Snow + faun = instant Tumnus, I could tell even before I read the description. This is utterly adorable, just as I've come to expect from your work. :)

I adore everything about this. I love the color combinations used here, and I love the elegant balance between the details on Claire and Mr. Tumnas's clothes and the slightly abstract/beautifully uncomplicated style of the background. Also, their gentle, sweet smiles make me happy. :heart:

Thank you so much! I was looking for a brush or a stock image to fudge the background, but birch trees are so easy to do and so attractive, I just gave it a go. Glad I did! It's kind of Calvin & Hobbes-y.

I suppose Stanley Tucci was Puck in Midsummer Nights Dream,
so Tumnus wouldn't be too much of a stretch for him :la:
plus it is simply adorable!

Thank you! Ha, he'd have to mellow out to be Tumnus, but that's totally within his range. My friend Claire just really loves him. :)
