Damn Her Innocent Eyes by Ring0fFire Damn Her Innocent Eyes by Ring0fFire
". . . very few had gotten as far as this disturbing girl, who was too old to be turned into a goblin. Jareth examined her face in his crystal. Too old to be a goblin, but too young to be kept by him, damn her innocent eyes." *


Media: Thread (sewing Sarah was the most fun I've had ever), india ink, shellac, nail polish, gel gloss, matte medium, acrylic, graphite. I REALLY wish you could see how shiny and sparkly it is in real life, especially the bubbles and the eyeshadow. Totally befitting The King of *cough*Sparkles*cough* Goblins.


*The quote is from the Labyrinth novelization by A.C. H. Smith.

Props on using nail polish! Of all the lines in the novelization, that was the one that stuck with me. It really does call for fan art to be drawn of it, and I'm glad you were inspired.

You've captured her features beautifully. It's a really wonderful, dream-like piece. And I agree, obsession is probably more accurate, although my heart will always go out to him... *sigh*

... Nail polish? For some reason that made me laugh out loud. Oh, yes, so very fitting. :)

This is just so moving and incredibly poignant. Your use of color and space in the piece really conveys that dreamlike quality to Jareth's reveries I feel. Lovely.
