Lia Selina is a Russian artist who makes fairytale art using a sophisticated pencil-drawing technique.

She personifies her animal subjects by having them stand upright and wear human clothing, which works to give them a relatable feel that's reminiscent to children's books and popular shows like 'Little Bear' -- however with substantially more detail. Her fairytale art ranges in subject, from wildlife to pixies and iconic fable characters. In addition to a range of illustrations, Lia Selina is a photographer, in which work she implements a similar style.

By focusing on the specifics of her subjects, her fairytale art is practically brought to life -- with viewers able to interpret the animals by their human stances and expressions.
