my first illustration for Pavel Bazhov's tale, "The Malachite Casket: Tales from the Urals".
it's a very old project of mine, I was only 15 when I decided to make a series to this Russian fairy tale. finally I'm satisfied with the result. maybe.

here's the lineart [link]
textures from mayang and from hibbary [link]

It's so big pleasure to see when forein artists drew characters of Bazhov's Ural's fairy tales! I was a little child, when I read this tale, and I really like this character.

Lovely pattern behind her head, and the whole thing reminds me of Ivan Biblin's illustrative work; Beautiful. =)

WOW! It's so unusual for me to see here the art on Russian tale about Urals because I am Russian and I live right in Urals... :D
I love the tales about Malachite Casket and the Mistress of Copper Mountain since my childhood. You've portrayed her really well! Nice job :)

Tök jók a színek! Nemrég kaptam a Flórától egy könyvet "A tűzmadár" címűt, az is orosz mesegyűjtemény, és abban is ilyen szép illusztrációk vannak, csak sajnos nem színesek. (vagyis hát gondolom eredetileg azok, csak a könyvben nem...)

köszi :)
ez a Tűzmadár megtekinthető valahol a neten, h melyik ez pontosan? (és mikori kiadás? hozzáférhető még?)

Ez az: [link]
Azért ha csak az illusztrációk miatt akarnád megvenni, akkor ne tedd, mert most megnéztem: összesen kb. 6-7 van benne... Én többre emlékeztem de gondolom, ez azért van, mert viszont ez a pár kép nagyon jó.

:) igen, színek nélkül kevésbé értelmezhető... malachitból készült a ruhája a drágának a mese szerint, végül is tündér (noha a szigorú fajtából)
"csaltam", a képet már elkezdtem tavaly májusban, csak nem tetszett. most folytattam, de a ruhája színe még megvolt akkorról. ha ezt veszed, szuperlassú voltam :D

ah értem, de nem baj az egyébként, jó munkához néha idő kell :D
van egy kis féldrágakő mániám ( nem is olyan kis, teli van vele a gépem, meg az ágy mellet kis polcon ott figyelnek természetesen egy dobozban az én kis köveim .. )
nem hiszek semmiféle gyógyító erőben, vagy a horoszkópkövekben vagy bármi, de ezek tényleg olyan szépek és sokfélék, hogy nehéz nem azt érezni hogy különlegesek
régóta tervezek egy képsorozatot ami ezeken alapulna (vagy kettőt, mit tudom én), szóval igen, a malachit az tényleg ilyen szép *_*
kíváncsian várom a többi illusztrációt

hááát, nekem néha túl sok is kell...
most érzek energiát magamban meg látom h hogyan tovább a többi képpel, úgyhogy remélem hamarosan tudom mutatni az újakat - te pedig ne fogd vissza magad a féldrágaköves sorozatokkal!! :)

tényleg, valamiféle orosz meseillusztrációs dolgot lehet nézni neten? régebben kerestem gugliban de csak így random nem talált sokmindent, viszont néha látok itt ott képet, és vannak nagyon érdekes anyagok
