Fairy rings occupy a prominent place in European folklore as the location of gateways into elfin kingdoms, or places where elves gather and dance. According to the folklore, a fairy ring appears when a fairy, pixie, or elf appears. It will disappear without trace in less than five days, but if an observer waits for the elf to return to the ring, he or she may be able to capture it.
Tamarind I and Tamarind II (The Blue Beard)
Two pieces for a longer personal project.
Snow white - Hair as white as snow, skin as black as ebony and lips as red as blood.
I’m trying to find a style that’s not too difficult to draw, that also fits the story lalala.. Her head could be a little smaller, I think. And I’m not content with her profile.
Gosh, there’s so much to consider when you plan a comic. I’m lucky that the story already exists but I have to design all the characters and the places hahaha and learn how to place the panels and everything and blaah
Oh well, it’s still fun.

My half of an art trade with a friend. Part of my “Fairy Tales” series.
Another page from The Three Billy Goats Gruff. This one goes between the other two I’ve done. I like drawing goats. Just thought I’d throw that out there.
"True Love comes in many forms"
since i’ve equated a few of my favorite dreamworks movies to celestial bodies, i wanted to do something similar with a few disney/pixar movies that i love and love seems to be just the right theme !!

My friend and I did a really cool dark fairytale themed photoshoot for a gallery submission last weekend! This was from our “Bluebeard” round. We also did some for a “Little Mermaid” theme, though I completely forgot to do the image that I wanted for that set. xP Anyway, please don’t delete this source!
Harry Clarke, Bluebeard’s Last Wife, 1921
"Bluebeard’s last wife was bought by Albert Wood who had it mounted in a James Hick’s cabinet, made of walnut and tortoiseshell. The panel is illuminated by a light at the back of the cabinet. The theme of Bluebeard’s last wife is based on the fairy tale by the seventeenth century French author, Charles Perrault. The panel depicts the wife of Bluebeard dancing across a bridge, dressed in a blue oriental outfit. Bluebeard lies in wait under the bridge, his sword poised to strike."
April’s theme week is Artist Alley! Over the past few years the Artist Alley has become one of my favorite places to be when I go to conventions, so I think it’s time to give a little love to some artists that I found there.
(Faces hidden, with love, because I’m not sure how everyone feels about their picture being posted.)
These amazing pieces were all done by my friend ECT Mills, who just had her first table at Zenkaikon. If you think she’s as awesome as I do, go visit her store! :D
