Fairy tale - Composers and creators by secondlina Fairy tale - Composers and creators by secondlina

It took me ages, but I did it. I did a poster featuring the lads and ladies known as composers and collectors of fairy tales, and rulers of my heart. *laughs*

My two favorite things about this is that Collodi (creator of The Adventures of Pinocchio) looks like a Disney villain and that Scheherazade is front and center. I know she isn’t a real person, but she represents all the people who participated to the creation of the 1001 nights. 

This was used as an update in our Namesake guest week. Seemed à propos considering the comic’s plot.

This is available as a print here.

I looked up a bunch of these people on google once. They're pretty cool, too bad they're not more well known.

I love this! Especially way you had drawn Lewis Carroll(he looks so cute in this :3!). And as for H.C. Andersen, where were you when Disney did that episode of "The Little Mermaid" show where he appeared in? I love Disney but they didn't get his hair color right! They needed you!

nice picture though in my opinion I would put jewell's vern in this (yeah his work is more sci fi but to me its very creative like a fantasy)

I was kinda disapointed that OUAT did'nt mentioned or referenced the authors/collectors of fairy tales.

OUAT's content is built a lot around Disney's versions of the tale and the idea that the stories are "real", so it didn't really fit in the plot I think.

I truly was disapointed that this show only refrenced the Disney versions.

I absolutely adore this picture. I sadly don't recognize many of them, but I got excited when I reached Jeanne Marie LePrince de Beaumont. I had to do a French project on a famous French person, and I choose her. I'm going to try and get a print sometime around the new year. Brilliant work, and I'm looking for to more from you.

It would have been nice to have Lafcadio Hearn too, but I guess he was more horror than fairy tales.

Still, nice drawing.

I thought about putting him in, because I love his stuff. I actually rejected about 10 authors in the end (lacked so much room). I went more for those classified generally as "fairy tale" writers. I'll probably re-do this in various formats, and include him and others.

Was your line art one big illustration or did you make a montage of several drawings?
Inks and colours are looking great!

This is so awesome. It is an incredible piece of art. So very cool. And way to remind people of less famous writers. So cool.

At first I thought it was Pinocchio for some reason.  Who's the girl on the other side?
