Quote from a retired Disney princess, who was one of the first Snow Whites.
When the girl was brought to him he led her into a room that was entirely filled with straw. Giving her a spinning wheel and a reel, he said, “Get to work now. Spin all night, and if by morning you have not spun this straw into gold, then you will have to die.” Then he himself locked the room, and she was there all alone. — "Rumpelstiltskin", Brothers Grimm.
I drew this for my friend Lady, because Rumpelstiltskin is her favourite fairy tale. Man, we eat that shit up like it’s the candy cottage. Fairy tales are beast, ok. If you’re not familiar with them, start. This one’s twisted a little to a darker tale of my liking, but this took me like three to four hours all up. Hope she likes it. :3
ps if u get ur book back and those pages are missing, i blame huntsman.

I am currently working on a series of line illustrations as a personal project. I initially wanted to use this as an opportunity to add a bit more variety to my portfolio, but I’ve also realised the importance of working on self initiated projects in-between paid commissions. It reminds me what this has all be about.
It is sufficient, but I think it might not be fully finished.
Chubby Inuit mermaids with sleek seal tails
Sleek Japanese mermaids with orange and white koi bodies
Dark, scaly mermaids with enormous white eyes so that they can hunt at the bottom of the sea
Small mermaids with spiky, poisonous lionfish bodies
Mermaids with sharp teeth and shark tails that hunt sailors for fun
Mermaids that aren’t just skinny blonde pretty girls with fish tails
Are these okay?

i have now died. of joy.
I don’t think I’ve seen art of an old mermaid (mermatron? mergranny?) before.
I love it!
Oh look it’s the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen
This is really amazing but I have to say, I read “mermatron” not as “mer-matron,” but as “merma-tron" and I was just like MERMATRON. AUTOWHALES. SWIM OUT. and I’m ruined my brain is ruined I’m so sorry
Snow White and Rose Red are loving, happy sisters, although they are different as day and night. Together they live with their mother in cozy, peaceful cottage in the woods. Then, one snowy day, their peace is disturbed by a giant black bear looking for a warm place to rest. At first scared, the girls and their mother soon realize the bear is kind—in fact, there is more to the bear than meets the eye. Will the girls’ giving spirits rescue the bear from his troublesome and secretive fate? This age-old Brothers Grimm tale is here deftly retold and stunningly re-illustrated with modern, magical paintings by Kelly Vivanco.
