The Little Match Girlby NJA3D

Hey there guys and gals, long time no see :) This is the illustration i did for the CGsociety ''DreamScape'' challenge. I'm sure most of you know the fairy tale ''The Little Match Girl'' by Hans Christian Andersen. Well, my story begins when this one ends. When the last match is out, and there is nothing else to keep her warm in this cold winter night. When she finally closes her eyes and drifts away in her last ice cold dream ... Here, in this dream, she will take her last stand fighting off cold, but unfortunately we all now how this dream is going end ... Fun fact, last three days of the challenge it was snowing like crazy here in Serbia, and they said that it will stop snowing the exact same night the challenge was scheduled to end. This is cool because The Little Match Girl was a story i tried to do so many times, (i think i started the first one for the B-movie challenge), and it seamed like she was cheering for me to finish it those last few days. When i submitted my entry, one hour before the deadline, not 20 minutes past, and it stopped snowing. I remember smiling and thinking that maybe with this illustration finally finished, I’ve put her tortured soul to rest :)
