Rumplestiltskin by H0lyhandgrenade Rumplestiltskin by H0lyhandgrenade
This is a sample of a much longer comic which I may make some day; a retelling of Rumplestiltskin. Quite different from the original story. This was for a class project... Hence me rushing it very much. Damned deadlines. There are quite a few things I would have liked to have done differently had I had the time, but alas.

The masked man may look somewhat familiar. Yes, it's a very similar design to the man in Mokepon... But actually, I've had the idea for this story (and that character) in the back of my mind for years now. I merely borrowed the design for Mokepon.

I kind of regret the scene I chose. I should have gone for something that would lend itself to more interesting, more varied pictures, but I ended up being more interested in showing the kind of relationship between the characters. Alas, it's finished now and that's the main thing.

EDIT: The whole thing is now being made :D You can read it here! [link]

I Am So In Love With Your Art Style AND Writing!!

I would love to see one of my stories by your pen, it would be such an honour. Of course, you seem to do perfectly well without another writer writing you stories, a complement for that! But I've got to ask. Better chances of asking than not asking, right?

Would you have an interest in drawing one of my names?

I've actually been looking for an artist for quite some time now, as my old partner chose to stop (or at least pause) his drawing. Beforehand you should know I am quite the ambitious writer, and I do have my dreams. But a one-time job would be a lot of fun, too!

Get to know just how ambitious I am by clicking the following links.
Contact details are provided in both.
  1. Project proposal on Tapastic
  2. Project proposal on DeviantArt (repost but with additions)
I do have samples of my writing, if you should be interested.
Looking forward to hearing from you! ^^

Tempest-in-Blue Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012
I like it, very much, but (and I apologize if someone has already mentioned this) oughtn't it read "...all this straw to be spinning" rather than "sewing"? Because they're really not the same thing at all.
H0lyhandgrenade Featured By Owner Oct 29, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
It should xD Mistake on my part. I changed it later but seems I forgot to change it here...

Oh, I liked it so much :3 Your drawing style and how you retelle the story, is there more??? n.n
AmbreeChristineSkye Featured By Owner May 15, 2012
Wait, whoa, whoa, whoa! Is there more of this?! I must see more!! :tears: I've been looking for a good retelling/showing of Rumpelstiltskin for ages! And I find an amazing one and it's in the middle of the story!! :cries:
I'm not sure what character you were referencing with the design of your Rumpelstiltskin, so no comment on that except that I absolutely adore the mask concept! :love: Your drawing style is really intriguing, I like it. And you managed to make me hate the prince the minute I saw him (don't know if that's what you were going for but I've always thought the character came of as a prick in the original stories. ;P), and I like the expressions on the girl's face (Rumple called her Chris right?) Gah! what kinda school do you go to to be able to make something like this as a project?! (I'm guessing art college?) I just spewed a bunch of stuff I could probably just learn by going to your profile so... sorry, but it's be a waste of typing to delete it. Sorry for the long comment. ^^; If you couldn't tell already, I really like this, the shading also caught my eye by the way.
Okies I'm gonna shut up now. Heh (that's code for 'go raid your gallery for more of your work.) ^^;
Great job I love contact with humans thing...I said i'd shut up didn't I? ^^;

Keep on drawing! ^^/

chibi-seijitsu-chan Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2012
I really like what you're doing here. It's fresh, and your art style is lots of fun! Is it safe to assume that there will be more of this from you?:3
ShadowDragonn Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2012
oh but this scene is really intriguing. I want to know what happened before- how they came about deciding on a hug, and more importantly-what comes next. Who he is behind the mask, is he afraid of her seeing Who he is, or just seeing his face? Is he perhaps someone she knows, or....? Ooooh and what will be the last thing she gives him? {If she has to spin gold a third time like in the original}. It makes me excited to wonder!
I support you continuing this!
Kitwillan Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2011
