Another drawing I started a long, long time ago after reading a book called the annotated Classic Fairy Tales. I don''t know why I got sucked into that, maybe it was the sweet art or that it was because it was the first time I read the tale Bluebeard. Anyway I know the quality sucks tremendously probably because I had to scan it in sections. And yes there’s another light source from above them, and I included all 6 mice, 6 lizards, 1 pumpkin, and 1 rat, although most of them were destroyed by the scanner or cut off at the bottom.

Media used: colored pencils, gel pens, markers, and pen

No_NameThat's so awesome!
It's too bad about the critters that were cut off though. This is one of my favs.
I totally agree with nothingempire. You have a great technique with colours and shading.
This is real eye candy.

luckylace222This reminds me of Shakespeare times when the people were given extremely elaborate/flamboyant dresses and heavy makeup for plays! Great work!

Tuntun422It's an excellent drawing. This was based on the story of blue beard you say? It sort of reminds me of Cinderella.

But anyway it's a very good drawing. By the way I recently submitted some new art to my gallery & if you'd like feel free to come and take a look at my drawings.If you'd like to that is.

restless_dreamerHey actually this is based on Cinderella, I was just saying why I liked that book which probably has every fairy tale you ever heard of. I couldn’t believe that Bluebeard was a fairy tale since it’s about a guy whose a serial killer anytime one of his many wives would unlock a forbidden room. Anyway thanks so much for the comment and fav, I’m glad you like it!

restless_dreamerHey thanks buddy, I really appreciate the feedback and I'm glad you like it! I might also draw the little Mermaid sometime in the distant future but base it on the original story not the stupid disney version. Oh and yeah of course I'll put up a bigger version for you! ^__^
