Rapunzel by KmyeChan Rapunzel by KmyeChan

My take on the ever-so popular tale from the Grimm Brothers. This picture (or at least, the general idea of it) had been in my mind for years, but I lacked the technical skill to actually draw it until recently. I'm really happy I finally got to do it !

Also, if you are interested, I've recorded the coloring of this picture : you can watch the time-lapse video here !
If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask. :)

Limited edition fine art prints are available directly from me on my Etsy store.

[Markers, acrylics and pencils on watercolor paper | 30x40 cm - approx. 12x16 inches]

This is a beautiful piece of work. It is remarkable how you created this out of markers? ( what did you use for this may I ask). I think I have found a new artist i will follow.

Thank you! I used a mixture of Copics and Promarkers, as well as some watercolours and acrylics. I actually have a time-lapse video of the making of this one if you are interested: vimeo.com/70060521 :)

I can't believe that it is traditional *O* Fabulous! The idea is great! Also your draw styke is fascinating! How did you make her dress so soft and light?

For the dress I used light washes of white acrylic paint. I have a time-lapse video of this illustration on my Vimeo account here if you are interested in watching how I did the dress: vimeo.com/70060521

Les couleurs sont magnifiques ! Un vrai régal pour les yeux.
Avant de me pencher plus, j'ai vraiment cru que c'était du digital ! (avec bon nombre de tes autres deviations)
Tu utilises toutes les techniques que j'affectionne le plus, avec un résultat incroyable :love:

Je ne fais que tu tradi (à petit niveau), et je me disais toujours qu'un jour ou l'autre je serais "limitée" (après plusieurs petites frustrations XD), n'arriverait jamais à retranscrire exactement ce que je souhaite.
J'avais un petit coup de mou ces temps-ci, mais ta galerie m'a fait un choc ! Dans le bon sens du terme, ça m'a redonné confiance/espoir, il faut que je travaille, point >w<

Merci beaucoup de partager avec nous ce que tu fais *_*

In hindsight... knitting needles for a braid? And there are stairs *right there*.

I love this! We can see how her hair is impossibly long, and then we see her trying to braid it but there's still a lot to go, and she's so fragile compared to how strong it looks... and the colors give the perfect mood for the painting :)

Incredible! The perspective and compositions is amazing, and the picture has an overall beautiful sense of light, shadow, and depth. I also really love the darker atmosphere you used, thus making it feel more like the real fairy tale. ^v^ Gorgeous job, this picture is nothing short of breathtaking! You are an artist of incredible skill! :)
