Miette vs. the Mad Scientist Krank/Entangled

In City of Lost Children, Miette's (Judith Vittet) love for One leads to her fate becoming entangled with that of Krank (Daniel Emilfork). Judith Vittet was nine when the film was made, and her performance is stunning. The illustration Friday prompt is entangled.

wow that looks like a battle of wills. Is is an impasse? The visual makes me want to read the story.

I love the look on the girl's face. One feels she is equal to any challenge.

What a fun illustration! The confrontation looks almost balanced--stubborn child, and really wierd guy with things on his head. I really like this. It puts us into this world, which seems kind of post-appocalyptic (and yes, I know that isn't spelled right).

In answer to your questions, most of my pieces have some kind of photo reference (all the ones that look like they might be a real person). I'm trying to use more of my own photos for those.

Hey, Susan: the girl looks like you very much! Take a look at your picture in the icon - there is a striking resemblance!
