And now I have come to that favorite among fairy tales, Sleeping Beauty (reviews here and here).  It was hard to find a published version of Perrault's original in its entirety, but the Grimm version is well-known too, and pretty similar (for the first half anyway!).  It was fun to do a princess and try to set her in a different time than my previous two, and also to try to make her not too similar to either the 1959 Disney classic, or the 2014 re-imagining in Maleficent (eh).

UPDATE: Painted version here

I like her overall look; also Maleficent was an extreme disappointment.

Well the dress similar to the 2014 Maleficent dress.

Well, considering it was the style of the time in which this story is often set, that makes sense. :)

Do you know, that's actually been crossing my mind lately too!  Maybe I will start to do just that after I'm finished in a month or two.

I am getting to them as time allows, and usually on Sundays.  Just be patient and they will happen when they do!  Jim Hawkins will not be making his appearance today.

WAY prettier than the Disney Aurora.

Why, thank you!  I do love Marc Davis's Aurora, but I'm glad you like this one.

I know she's not Disney, but do you think you'll take a try at Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz? :)

That's a good idea!  I've been meaning to re-read that, and when I do I'm sure some sketches will end up in my little book.  Thanks for the suggestion!  (In the meantime, I did do this little number, though it's definitely inspired by the movie.)

Love this! Her dress is so pretty, and I love how little Aurora looks too. What is the concept exactly behind your Disney Un-Disneyed series?
