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.

I LOVE how it is so soft and dark-ish at the same time. Plus, that dress is simply gorgeous!

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?

Thank you! :)
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*.

...Maybe she's fishing for princes? :D
