Twisted Fairy Tale by Shira-chan Twisted Fairy Tale by Shira-chan
My entry for the Twisted Fairytales Contest. Sleeping Beauty!

I didn't use the Disney designs, cause I didn't want Prince Phillip getting eaten by a zombie ^^;

This picture took three days, between 5 and 8 hours each day... I think it's a record for me. I rarely take that long to finish a picture. But I went full shading on everything and texture-happy, so there was a lot of little detail involved in this that normally isn't there in my other comic pages.

I deliberately wanted to try a strictly horizontal panel layout like you see in a lot of comic books these days. I declare it a success.

For the record, I love this. :D

This is very nice. The shading is well done and the people are well porportioned. The princess transforming into her zombie form is very creative and it's nice how the face looks the same as it goes through its transformations. The prince's intenstine is also well done.
The coloring is also nice. It's clean with no scratchy lines. The panel with just the red and the black shadows is fantastic.
I think that when you show a close up on her face, there could be a little more shading, maybe around the eyes and under the eyebrows.
But other than that, I don't have any other critiques!
Very nice work.
What do you think?

This is truly remarkable! I love how this starts off in a very romantic type style and tradition only to go wrong, so very wrong for our prince charming. Your flow from Sleeping Beauty's transformation is just spot on. the prince's face looks absolutely terrifying and the last panel is gruesomely cool.

I can really see that after she is done feasting on his organ that she would return to her slumber and wait for her next Prince to try and wake her up. Shira-chan, you are an artist who constantly gets better and better. I salute you! I wish you the best in the contest!

How did she turn into a zombie?
goldensparkprincess Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
i think once the spell broke the ageing prosess sped up, and cuz she had been asleep (in the original) for over 100 years, she was probably hungery/half dead
so...yah know she grabed the first pice of meat she saww

... I don't know what to say. This makes sense though.
FukayamaYuki Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
IT'S SOOOOO TRUE THOUGH!!!! I mean, after a hundred years of just sleeping, you'd think Aurora would die sooner or later. Then of course the "spell" *cough*curse*cough* is still keeping her alive thus the zombie effect. I FINALLY UNDERSTAND MY CONFUSION NOW!!!!!!!!

LOL yeah it does make sense!!! I'm scared! O.O Darn it, they should make a remake and put this in it!!!! :D

Someone stuck this on Memebase.
When I saw it I thought I should let you know.
Since they didn't link you or site their source or anything.
Shira-chan Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Thanks, I just found out about that earlier today. I think someone else posted a link back to me somewhere in the comments, but I definitely appreciate the vigilance! :)
kitsune-blue Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2012
Yeah, a couple of us did post links, I didn't notice that until I refreshed the page and scrolled down a bit,lol.

True, very true, cause she slept for over 100 year, her body would've decayed already

If the evil queen was smart, she would have added that to the curse. Either eternity in slumber or zombie lover. Only a necrophile could win that game.

I always did wonder why Sleeping Beauty didn't age the 100 years she slept.
