    omg, this art reminds me of the illustrations from The Thirteen Clocks. (the reprint, not the original)

    I really want to see more, please.

    I say give the text some more space - it's coming close to touching the images in a lot of places.

    I find the closeness a bit distracting.
    Nice illustrations, I like this style for tales

    Hey danilo! it's looking good, I would only critique pages 8 and 15 because they don't seem to have the same well organized look. On page 8 the cat's eyes don't quite pop out enough from the forest they are above, although the forest itself looks great. Page 15 feels incomplete for some reason, like there is not enough ground (I know he's flying there but...). Can't wait to see it all wrapped up and completed!

    This stuff is really good. I am into Illustration as well, and I love your experimental way of colouring. The text is very disracting though, try playing around with it more. Also the cover looks very amateurish compared to the Illustrations. I guess you need to work on your grafik design sensibilities, or ask a grafik designer to come up with an interesting and not over the top solution to your font problem.

    Pero devo dire che le tue Illustrazioni sono davvero eccelenti!

    Grazie per l'incoraggiamento

    I agree that font on cover is no good, and it need replacement, maybe hand lettering. But I prefer this layout for the cover. Once in the store sorounded by mess of saturated colors it need to be simple and easy to read.

    this illustration is lovely, but this week i have been reading a book called "russian folk tales"..etc, illustrated by Alexander Linderberg, it is a fantastic book, quite obscure, i have had difficulty finding any of his work online.and then i came across this. ..

    sometimes as an illustrator i find it hard not to become absorbed by another illustrators work, i think that perhaps you have crossed a line where referencing here, you have completely ripped him off.

    At least it was an interesting thread that was dug up this time. I would have liked to ask the op how the illustrations made use of Magritte's theories. Try seaching for Lindebergs work and spell his name Aleksander instead, you will get more results that way.
