Great piece!
- and @swisnie is right: it's very reminiscent of Froud's work - but not too much. You still have your own, unique style.

this poor girl looks like she's about to be stuffed into a pie.

I love Rapunzel's expression. This has always been one of my favorite fairytales ... did you do this for a book? I would love to get a copy if so...

doog's picture

Thanks - I was messing with the proportions a bit here, especially on the witch Wink.

Guest's picture

Wonderfull, exactly how I pictured this Fairy Tale, but Rapunzel seems slightly out of proportion next to the witch and in her oversized clothes...They make her look like she has no legs...and oddly, I like that aspect of it! Smile

Thank-you Svetlana. I do like to try and keep things rather simple and less cluttered if possible. I believe that a strong design will help you to tell your story more effectively. This however, is much easier said than done.

Thanks. I never get tired of doing witches.

Amazing image! every time i see it i am stunned ^_^ flawless colors and texture. especially i love Rapunzel's face, so childish and gentle and rosy Smile and what more: someone on your place wouldn't resist the temptation to make the sky more detailed, with great clouds and all, because the sky takes much space in the picture. but you didn't ^_^ and that's great bacouse otherwise the image would be really busy Smile you know when to stop - that's

Oh my god it's so fantastic. I love little repunzel's coat and the way her eyes are all red. I especially like the texture of both her and the witches hair. I feel so sorry for her. I wanna help!!

*runs of crying*

Another fine piece, top to bottom. Your use of varied yet subtle colors is most distinctive!

Guest's picture

Rebecca - Thanks, Rapunzel is not going to have a good time, but the prince is out there Wink

Marley, thanks. I was wanting Rapunzel to be looking at the viewer as though we are her last chance for a rescue. She has been crying, but there is a glint of hope, soon to be dashed. We don't mess around where a witch is concerned.

Thanks Stan. B.F. is one of my core influences, there's no getting away from it Smile

swisnie's picture

Larry, your work is great. I like the muted, grey bakgrounds and the exaggerated characters, Reminds me a lot of Brian Froud.

Peikko - Thanks, it's good to be back.

Ken - You are too kind brother. Thanks a ton.

i was almost saddened by your long (to me) absence from epilogue; great work for the year's start... keep it up!

Art at its best.
