This is fucking adorable!   I love the style and detail of the monster. And the sweetness of that tiny bear defending the sleeping child. Great stuff.

Had this favorited on an old account, now have it in my new account. Just gonna add to the masses and tell you this is an absolutely exquisite piece. I dare say we all felt this way about our stuffed animals when we were young. Beautifully done :) my husband loves it too

I would love to buy a print of this? Is that possible?
BlueEyedBrigadier Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2014
Is it wrong to imagine the teddy bear sounding like a fusion of Sir Ian McKellen as Gandalf facing down the Balrog - "You shall not PASS!!!" - and Toby Jones as Dobby the House-Elf in the Harry Potter films? I ask because this image stokes so many ideas in my brain!

My name’s Mathilde and I’m writing as an intern from a writer’s society in Aalborg, Denmark. I’ve been put in charge of finding images to go with our writing prompts programme, which helps aspiring writers with a piece of text and an inspirational image to get the creative juices flowing.

I’m writing you because I’d like to use this picture (an maybe more) for our writing prompts, so if you would like the extra exposure and agree to us using it, we will in return agree to not use it for any other purposes than the writing prompts.

Kind Regards,

Mathilde Læssø

The Rock is doing a movie based off of this picture, dope!
carmillad Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2014
I love this picture. Since I was a little girl, I always considered plushies as guardians of our dreams, kinda like in the "New Nightmare" movie, where, according to Dylan, his stuffed T-Rex protected him from Freddy Krueger. Wonderful job!

Hey! This piece is so amazing.

Do you have a higher res version?

I'll gladly pay for a print (but would rather do it directly!)

Saw this on facebook as a meme with no credit and a  friend tracked it down for me. It's really wonderful. My koala has fought off monsters 10 times the size!

Question on a print - what would look better for this, glossy, matte, or lustre?
muddie Featured By Owner May 20, 2014
I think remember you saying (many, many years ago) that you were planning on re-doing this.  is that still the case?
LatinVimes Featured By Owner May 16, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
How could I have missed this? A must fave!
EngineeringTitans Featured By Owner May 9, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Haha! How original, I love the size difference too. Go's to show the boundless courage of the tiny teddy and the girl doesn't feel a thing. People are gonna feel a lot from this!

with all due respect i used your art as an inspiration for my own version…
MagentaMaven Featured By Owner May 8, 2014
I found this image through a facebook post and I went out of my way to find out who the artist is. This picture is absolutely fantastic. I looked at more of your art and I love it. Please keep creating, because it is people like you, that bring back the magic in the world. :)

This inspired me to write a story about it and it is great so far.
PointedStick Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I'm sure you've heard this a million times, but this is one of my favorite images ever, and I've wondered for a long time where it originally came from. Thank you so much for making it!

Love the teddy.
traesin Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2014
This really resonates with me.   My teddy bear growing up would "take" away my bad dreams when I woke up from them.  I still have that old bear.   
Die-Bart-Die Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2014
Finally! I found the origin of this breathtaking art work!
flydragoon Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2014
This one is really, really great! Finally found the painter of this work!

I truly love this. It is a wonderful insight into a child's belief in the power of their teddy bear. X
LohryStern Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2014
This is beautiful and just like what I am looking for. Can I use this as a reference for a tattoo?

This is Kenneth from Taiwan, and I really really like this work.
