Artwork Description

A demented cautionary twist on an old faery tale:
"who says the damsel is really in distress?"

Colored using watercolor pencil touched up in Paint Shop Pro, and a whole lot of coffee late at night when I was already feeling goofy.

What an original take on the Rapunzel story! This is a great piece - very lively. I love anything having to do with Rapunzel and this really caught my attention. I love how you utilize traditional and digital media - very effective!

I can't take full credit for the idea Kay. Things like this are the direct result of being raised with a demented cartoonist, marrying a nortorious punster, and raising a Kindergartener who continually forces me to view the world in a skewed way. A sure recipe for chaos if ever there was one! LOL

Believe me, there are many more where this beastie came from too. Since this one was so well received, my hubby and I have already plotted out a series of pics that even now are in the works. May the gods have mercy on us all.... ;D

WOW thank you all so much! I was surprised to have this much feedback so quickly! LOL
I'm so happy to know you all like the piece - I had a tremendous amount of fun with it. As for the "witch", my original concept was that she's actually the real Rapunzel, a vampire who uses that innocent-looking proxy to lure food to her tower. The vampire's teeth don't stand out as well on this lower res version, but however the viewer chooses to interpret it is perfectly fine, especially as long as they find it as entertaining as I did.
Thanks again! Smile

Outstanding...great technique and humor! All three characters are so expressive...even the wooden Rapunzel. The witch is fabulous!
