: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:

One of my favourite Grimm stories! My favourite parts were always when the boy/bird said his little song.

Such an interesting picture, also. I like the expressions and the flowers.

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

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'

Reading through the Juniper tree I can see where some other stories got their ideas from. I almost though it was Snow Wight at one point XD I really need to get hold of some other copies of the origionals :)

Pernament? Ekstra, bo rewelacyjnie Ci to wychodzi!
Pomijając wszystkie linearno-kolorystyczne smaczki, których do odkrywania i śledzenia w pracy sporo, to najbardziej podoba mi się to, w jaki sposób pokazałaś obciętą głowę - nie przyjrzawszy się dobrze, możnaby to wziąć za cień padający od podbródka, a tu w istocie taki szpas! Yummy.
A co tam słychać w ogóle?

To samo _o_
Tylko brak motywacji do czegokolwiek mnie dobija. Przy większej ilości zajęć jakoś łatwiej było, a tak się wszystko rozłazi po kątach. Ale poza tym wszystko gra;] zeszłoroczne bezinternecie poszło się paść, juhuhuu

oh- i am so sorry, i realized that both lines are from one version- for a moment i was confused with "the rose tree". i still want to read both versions though- i have a fetish for deliciously macabre stories. XD

I don't know if I'm familiar with 'rose tree' can you tell me something more?

:iconairahnn:
airahnn Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2009
quite basically, its another variation of the Juniper Tree-

"My mother slew me, my father ate me"

The gender of the victim in this story is that of a girl- and the one who mourns the death of the victim is a boy- her brother.

In this story, the girl loses her head as well, but it was cut off by her evil stepmother as she pretended to comb the girl's hair.

other than that, everything is pretty much the same.
its a lovely story, no matter the version.

but i think that my favorite version remains still with the brothers grimm, absolutely chilling a story.

:iconairahnn:
airahnn Featured By Owner Nov 7, 2009
Oh, i want to read this story right now-

both versions seem gorgeous- the "My father, he ate me," and "My mother, she killed me."

And this fits the mood so well- there is something ominously violent about the rich hues of red.

What fairytale is this specifically? And from what origin?

AnnaWieszczyk Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2009
It's from brother Grimm and it's called as above 'juniper tree'
If you live in States I think you can find books like 'Grimm's Grimmest' with selection of most bizarre and gore stories.
