We only need the key by Nopa We only need the key by Nopa
"I still can`t believe that she hasn`t realized anything!" said Mathilda.
"It seems to be that the only way to escape is to steal the key from her" Rufus whispered.
The ghosts looked how the girl with the key left the room. Mr. Paw said nothing like never before. In fact the escape didn`t interest him as much anymore and he had started to like the girl who owned the house. She baked delicious pies (Mr. Paw had snitched a couple of them) and it was so comfortable to sleep in her socks box...

I joined to :iconchildrensillustrator: some time ago, because I liked the idea and they have really nice themes. I also realized that many some of my good friends are there too. ;> This is for their monthly topic "Ghosts". :)

The girl with the key lives in the old house and she hasn`t realize that there are also ghosts in her house! The ghosts are bored with their live in the house and they would like to leave. But if they want to, they need have the key of the house, because they can`t escape before someone opens the front door for them (or they open it by themself with the key). So, the ghosts have tried to do different things, that the house`s owner would realize that they exist. Unfortnately the house´s owner, the girl with the key, isn`t very cautious so she hasn`t noticed anything... :-----D So, the ghosts have decided to steal the key from her and then escape from their "prison". 8D

Is this an actual book?
If so, I'd love to read it.

Hehe, dunno, I get ideas from very places. 8D Often when I listen some music, some random lyrics inspire me and I take one sentence from the lyrics and then I invent a story about it and illustrate it. For example. 8D Often I also just start drawing with some kind of messy idea, like, "I wanna draw a freckle girl!" and then I start doodling and paiting. When I slowly work with the picture, the stories come to my mind and the idea grows. : D And when I have finished the picture, I have invented the story for that too. It is quite hard to explain, sometimes when I have drawn something, I am not sure anymore/I don`t remember anymore where or how I got the idea. :------o

gosh, you are developing such a distinctive, storybook like style D: I am jealous.

I love the detailed background you did here!! And wow... watercolors >_< they're really hard to use too...

Nopa Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2009
Oh, thank you! :blushes: And aww, don`t be! I have fall in love with children illustrations and so called storybook alike style and that is why my style have become like that too. :> Yor style is great even though different from mine and you are super talented, believe me. ;> When I was like 15, I was sometimes little bit sad that I wasn`t as good as many people in my age or people who are younger than me but now it doesn`t bother me anymore. :---) I am not the best one, but I don`t have to be, because I like my own style, even though I am not as talented than many other people. :hug:

Nice to hear that, I tried to draw a little harder (for me harder) background than usually. :> Sometimes I am too scared to try anything too hard, because it still feels like that I am not talented enough to do epic backgrounds. :------D

What a cute concept! I like that the girl isn't mean, she's just oblivious. I'm sure if she knew about them she'd be nice and let them go. The creepy blue around the ghosts is great too, and I love your colors!

Nopa Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2009
Thank you! :aww: First I was thinking that she could be a little mean, but when I started to paint her face, I knew that "naaah, this girl isn`t really a mean one". ;> She is just a little absentminded, and yes, if she would know, she would help the ghosts. :) And thanks still once! :heart: I added the blue "light" around them, because I realized that then it would be easier to notice that they really are ghosts and it would make them more ghost alike. : )

Haa taas yksi suloinen työ sinulta, tykkään tyylistäsi niin kovasti. n.n Kuva tukee kirjoitettua tarinaa mainiosti, voisi kuvitella tämän kuvan kyllä tarinakirjaan tekstin viereiselle sivulle. Ihana tuo perinteinen hiirenkolo tuolla taustalla. Hmm... onkohan muuten olemassa taloja, joissa ihan oikeasti olisi juurikin tollaisia koloja.
