31 Day Drawing Challenge - Day #15

Day 15 - A Faerie Tale.

I went looking through all of my various Faerie Tale books- Grimm, Anderson, Irish, English... And then decided to do a quick sketch of one of my own...

I follow the J. R. R. Tolkien definition of what a Faerie Tale is, which essentially means that if the story does not take place in Faerie, or contain denizens of Faerie, it ain't a Fairie Tale. So most of the popular 'Faerie Tales,' at least to Mr. Tolkien's and my mind, are not Faerie Tales at all, most of them are either Beast Fables or just simply 'tales.'

Anywho, 'The Elf with the Giant Nose' is a little moral story I came up with a while ago that will hopefully feature somewhere in the children's book I'm writing...
