So this is my entry to this months Challenge of the Month by Jazza.

As a child I loved to read the tales of One Thousand and One Night, in which the beautiful and clever Sheherazad tells the Sultan one Story every night in Order to not get killed. With her amazing storytelling she slowly winns the Sultans heart.

This amazing story itself made her the subject of my drawing along with three of her most well known characters, Aladin, Ali Baba and little Muck.

Hope you all like the gold and the arabic flair as much as I do!
Feel free to leave a review, I'd love to read your opinions!!

Here is a little overview of my work in progress:

This piece is so inspiring. I'm in love with the detail. The characters are very well drawn.
I can see nothing wrong with this piece. I love the background, you can see all of the detail, time, and effort that was put into it. Stunning, absolutely stunning!
I also entered this contest, for the first time. I wish you the best of luck.

Such a beautiful work! I love all those minor details you put in here - there's a lot of them (and are really well made), but at the same time they don't steal our attention. Used colors are pretty pleasant too :)
