As many comments already suggest, the king's look is very very royal.Mesmerizing mouse, mesmerizing drawing.Have a nice weekend!
Hello Elizabeth:King Rat indeed!!!! Monarch of all he surveys.
I love this! He looks so cute and the baubles are very pretty as well! :)
ah, yes! Complete royalty... totally mesmerizing....i like all of the jewels...
OMG if he could only meet TEA RAT....I think Tea Rat would have met his match....such a DARLING and FABULOUS DRAWING MY DEAR!!!! Anita
Wow - this is an amazing illustration. Love the jewels and the colors. I don't know if it's the eyes, the ball, or his intensity, but I feel hypnotized!
I'd agree! Wonderful illustration. Great expression, and I really like the detail. The balanced composition is perfect for a king, who really is a king, despite his small size.
Look into my eyes.... Excellent illustration!
There is a story there. "Mouse" and "regal" don't usually jive in the same sentence. This mouse reminds me of an elf-lord! So nice to meet you last week. Here's to all good things this year. Squeak, squeak!
When you mention the gaze, I almost feel a bit subject to it ...
beautiful, I also like the pillow
"You are getting very sleepy.........." LOL
the mouse king is a little overweight, he is bursting his royal cushion.
There is definitely a story to be told about this mouse. Brilliant. Love all your work.
He looks like he takes his very important job, very seriously...as he should! Does he have a Queen?xo J~
Delightful and divine. :)
What a wonderful painting! It makes The Nutcracker play in my head :) Perfect!
This Mousey likes!!! Really beautiful illustration...
I love your beautiful detailed work. Lovely.
Beautiful - such dignity!
"I am sleeeeeping. I am sleeeeeeping." WOW... I've never been mesmerized by a mouse before, even a king mouse.Manzanita@Wannabuyaduck
love the drawing, he truly is a king!
This is awesome ! I wish I had such a mouse living nearby, I am sure we would have interesting conversations.
Mouse King with a mesmerizing palantír. Stolen from Tolkins' Saruman? He looks grand. :-)
Strange, I suddenly have a powerful urge to raid my extensive stash of cheese & present it all in obeisance to this mesmerizing mouse monarch.
Fabulous details and yes his gaze is very mesmerizing - love your character design & style!
Well I bow to His Majesty, the Esteemed Highness... Great work as always, Elizabeth! Those eyes are truly bewitching...for a mouse. :D
Since I'm deathly afraid of mice, he would have me out the door! lol! Beautiful work!
Lovely piece!Good luck with your busy week!
Firstly, I am so sorry to see that this is a KING and not a PRINCESS. I've seen the thumbnail, quite a few times and it has fascinated me as much as the half-skinned dog. The reason that I wish that it was a she is because I have had "Froggy went a courtin'" in my head for several weeks, now. I've been working on a photographic frog mosaic and I was hoping that you had the mousy counterpart - the mousey that froggy was a-courtin'. Rats!So, don't mind me, I'll get over it and I do love the illustration.=] I'm sleepy and frozen, at the moment - I've been outside, all morning, in the very damp and cold fog for hours and I thought of you - I really did. The browned ferns and 'gone to seed' wildflowers - the brown cattails, the almost dead apple tree covered in dew laced spiders' webs... It's brownie and pixie country for sure - complicated, miniature and magical. But, I can only feel it. I know there's a story - I know that there's child's magic in it but I can only feel and don't know how to express it beyond my literal photographs. I thought of you. You know how to get it down on paper and I wished that I could ask for your thoughts! Perhaps, it's even that you have special eyes (or glasses!) that can, actually, see it and I can only perceive it.=]So, I send my passing thoughts, brewing in the back of my mind, across the country to you, this still foggy, muted, goosebump morning and hope that you have just the space of time that you need, this month, to get everything done in an enjoyable way!Love,Katy Noelle
So gorgeous, Elizabeth. It combines your incredible scientific illustration talents with your beautiful storytelling work. I love everything...the colors, the luscious rendering of the jewels...yum.
Such an intense look.
What a great expression! I get lost in the depths of the jewels, and wander off wondering where he's snagged them - what they were before they became his royal jewels.
I truly appreciate your comments.I try and reply, so be sure and come back!
