Coraline by AnnPars Coraline by AnnPars
The final picture for my watercolor class! The teacher had us illustrate a scene from a book, and I decided to go with Coraline by Neil Gaiman, when the creepy rat-man comes into Coraline's room.

I just read this part to my brother and he was terrified xD,  I love the way you illustrated this scene, the rats are detailed and perfect and the little touch of the angels as awesome *-*

Very well done IMO. It is really creepy, and definitely menacing in a way, but the menace is more indirect - exactly like it probably should be felt.

I LOVE Coraline! This is such a great illustration! I love the drawing style and the coloring style you used! I love the amount of detail you put into it, and I love how you depicted the characters! I like your version of Mr. Bobinski better than the movie version! I especially like the mustache! This sounds like a fun class to take!

Thank you! I like the book better too, but I may be biased since Neil Gaiman is kinda my favorite author :)

YES!!! This is more likely what I imagined when I read the book. I mean, the movie was great, too ... but, you know what I mean

This, indeed is a really good job ^^

I instantly knew that this was the scene with Mr. Bobo from the thumbnail. Damnit you've done brilliant work!

The colours, the detail, everything! It's just how I imagined it.

This is a great scene. I love the amount of detail you've put into this, with the flying toys and the moving pictures in the book.
