Ummm... recently reread this book and realized how magnificent it is.  Inspired me to make a prince.  Umm... he's made from Crayola's Model Magic and is painted with acrylics.  All colours used were hand mixed by myself from the primaries, black, and white.  Not really a doll, but I couldn't find anywhere better to put him.  Took about three hours all together. Smiley

Picture number one is the little prince with the book... and the drawing that inspired me.  Check out the quarter for size reference.



Picture number two is the multiview shot.  See the details, full body with my hand, and the prince on his little wire stand, sitting on top of th book.



Hope you like it as much as I do!

Oh wow that is pretty much the greatest thing ever!  I LOVE this book and just recently re-read it too.  I've re-ignited my obsession with baobab trees and am constantly drawing them, trying to perfect them.  (I'm crafty, but definitely not arty.)

Anyway, great work, and I'm sure that little guy will inspire you tons in the future!

Thanks so much to all!!! To anyone who said that you've only read half because you read it in French, I urge you to pick up a copy an read it through.  A truly fabulous read.

Anyways! Thanks again! I definitely didn't expect this to get so much action!
