Thumbelina: Character Design

Cover Image

It always annoyed me when I read a Thumbelina picture book or saw a cartoon of Thumbelina, how she came out of the flower wearing a dress that was meant for humans.

So I decided to redesign a more NATURAL look for Thumbelina. I want her to appear to be part of nature. I used mostly petal and leaf shapes.

It somehow turned into a 20's flapper style dress.


Maybe somebody could come up with a story for her? As thumbelina or even as her own unique new character?
