Good job on the shadows and hand. Your work on cloth is good too, as well as proportions.

I love this it shows that at lest children still hold on to idols(the toys) and have fear and respect for the time(in the dread of night) in which our most important sense sight is useless to us.

Creepy , but an absolutely stricking piece. Looks like the type of thing you would see if you opened up an old book.

Some day her curiosity would be more than her fear, and the kind simplicity of the toys will not satisfy her anymore... you make 'creepy' look like it's a good thing!
