My favourite Grimm tale. You've visually translated it wonderfully.

:music: My mother, she killed me.

My father, he ate me.

My sister Marlene

Gathered up my bones,

Put them in a silken scarf,

Buried them under the juniper tree.

Keewit, keewit, what a fine bird am I. :music:

You have an amazing style. Somewhat Harry Clarke-ish.

Cudo! Te kolory, zwłaszcza domieszka niebieskiego i granatu tak ładnie współgrają ze sobą. Te szczegoły... Slów aż mi brakuje :). Naprawdę, aż miło patrzeć!

this is defnitely one of the scariest grimm's fairy tales I ever read, and it's always been my favorite. Thank god we don't grow any juniper trees around here...

One of my favourite Grimm stories! My favourite parts were always when the boy/bird said his little song.
c:
Such an interesting picture, also. I like the expressions and the flowers.

I can't bear to delete this from my watcher's box. The textures are too beautiful.

I love the way you drew this, it's so delicate (like, the boy's hair, and the transparent cloth) but it still is so scary.
You really are the right person to adapt fairy tales :D

uh-uh, uwielbiam <3
'my mother the harlot
she put me to death
my father the varlot
he eaten me hath'
:33
wyraz twarzy matki rozwala, a tekstura na drewnie świetnie wali po oczach *,*
AnnaWieszczyk's avatar
skąd masz to tłumaczenie???
Amarthrog's avatar
to akurat było tym angielskim tłumaczeniu Fausta: [link]
pod koniec, jak Margaret ś;piewa w celi, to właśnie ten tekst jest :33
a że brzmi jeszcze bardziej fajowo niż 'my mother she killed me...' to się nim regularnie podniecam >D'
AnnaWieszczyk's avatar
ja jestem za polskim tłumaczeniem:

'matula obcięła mi główkę
tatulo w potrawce mnie zjadł
a siostrzyczka Maryjka
zebrała kosteczki
w węzełek z chusteczki
i pod jałowcem złożyła'
