My take on the ever-so popular tale from the Grimm Brothers. This picture (or at least, the general idea of it) had been in my mind for years, but I lacked the technical skill to actually draw it until recently. I'm really happy I finally got to do it !

Also, if you are interested, I've recorded the coloring of this picture : you can watch the time-lapse video here !
If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask. :)

Limited edition fine art prints are available directly from me on my Etsy store.

It's  nice to see dtawings of fairytales that's NOT in there Disney forms.Don't get me wrong,I like the Disney adaptations,but whenever Disney makes their own adaptation,it's like that's all people care about and they even go so far to call other adaptations of the fairytales "knockoffs" of their precious disney movies and whenever i google the fairytales,what will show up 99 percent is the disney version.I remember knowing and liking Rapunzel before Tangled came out.


Anyway,sorry for the rant,and nice pic btw

This is a beautiful piece of work. It is remarkable how you created this out of markers? ( what did you use for this may I ask). I think I have found a new artist i will follow.

Thank you! I used a mixture of Copics and Promarkers, as well as some watercolours and acrylics. I actually have a time-lapse video of the making of this one if you are interested: vimeo.com/70060521 :)

I LOVE how it is so soft and dark-ish at the same time. Plus, that dress is simply gorgeous!

I can't believe that it is traditional *O* Fabulous! The idea is great! Also your draw styke is fascinating! How did you make her dress so soft and light?

Thank you! :)
For the dress I used light washes of white acrylic paint. I have a time-lapse video of this illustration on my Vimeo account here if you are interested in watching how I did the dress: vimeo.com/70060521

Les couleurs sont magnifiques ! Un vrai régal pour les yeux.
Avant de me pencher plus, j'ai vraiment cru que c'était du digital ! (avec bon nombre de tes autres deviations)
Tu utilises toutes les techniques que j'affectionne le plus, avec un résultat incroyable :love:

Je ne fais que tu tradi (à petit niveau), et je me disais toujours qu'un jour ou l'autre je serais "limitée" (après plusieurs petites frustrations XD), n'arriverait jamais à retranscrire exactement ce que je souhaite.
J'avais un petit coup de mou ces temps-ci, mais ta galerie m'a fait un choc ! Dans le bon sens du terme, ça m'a redonné confiance/espoir, il faut que je travaille, point >w<

Merci beaucoup de partager avec nous ce que tu fais *_*
