This book is my final work in school, it was needed for the final exams. I decided to illustrate The Little Mermaid story by Hans Christian Andersen. This story is close to my heart, it is the most beautiful, and tragic one I know. I tend to read it once-twice a year, and it makes me tear every time. I tried to capture the feeling of it, the character of the little mermaid as it is written in the original story, tender, enchanting, fragile: "...but the youngest was the prettiest of them all; her skin was as clear and delicate as a rose-leaf, and her eyes as blue as the deepest sea; but, like all the others, she had no feet, and her body ended in a fish’s tail." There are two versions of the book I made, a Hungarian one, and a Japanese one (which I'm going to update as another project). The illustrations are made with watercolours, and a bit touch of Photoshop. Hope you enjoy my work~ Read Less
