The Princess Bride Buttercup by kevinbolk The Princess Bride Buttercup by kevinbolk
"That day, she was amazed to discover that when he was saying "As you wish", what he meant was, "I love you." And even more amazing was the day she realized she truly loved him back."

Next up in my series of art cards based on The Princess Bride, we have the lovely Buttercup, complete with shrieking eel.

To be completely honest, I'm not entirely happy with the likeness on this one. Robin Wright (the actress who played Buttercup), as lovely as she is, has facial features that just do not translate well into my style. I was hesitant to post her for this reason, but I can't exactly do a "Princess Bride" set without the princess bride. So, my apologies on this one. I swear the rest are better. XD

I think it looks fantastic even though it doesn't look exactly like the actress. The eel was a great touch too.

I think it looks like Buttercup well enough. Though I must confess, I mainly like this because of the eel ready to chomp her head off.

believe it or not in the book they were NOT eels they were sharks
and in the book she didn't realize it, he told her. She realized she loved him first.

I love the part where she breaks the news of her plans to kill herself to her 'future' father in law, and his response is, "That's lovely." And then he walks down the hall and proclaims, "She kissed me!"

looks great, when I saw this, a quote came to mind: "Now, she doesn't die at this point." XD as well as: "See? I told you she wouldn't marry him. Yeah, yeah, you're very smart, now shut up"

Holy scaboli, I LOVED that book since the first moment I read it, in health class, before class started, marking the page I was on in my notebook. Haven't seen the movie, but Mandy Patinkin played Inigo, which means two things: One, I can NEVER take his character on Criminal Minds seriously again, and two, I know that at least will be awesome. (PS: I can totally imitate Inigo.)
