Rapunzel

I really didn't want to make her blonde. There's too many blonde princesses out there. But then I made the background too dark and blonde was the only color that really stood out. Damn me and my terrible color sense!

This be cool - I prefer these colors to the '80's' color scheme, mainly because I can't remember much of the 80's - ZZ Top - that's all I remember from the 80's - this'n reminds me of Arthur Rackham a bit, which is awesome-

Nice facelift to the blog BTW, I've been meaning to do a title heading thingy, possibly a tribute drawing of ZZ Top...

Lovely... it really gives the feeling of being trapped

:( she looks so sad. I think she's lonely or maybe just tired after taking 7 hours to wash her hair... or something.

great pic!

Those hands coming out of the dark to comb her hair just freak me out! Very subtle. Very effective!

Holy cows, I took a closer look, there is like, real fur in there! And scary witch hands!!! This is how the fairytales used to be, no singing sidekicks. Just evil step sisters missing their eyeballs and stuff.

Your color sense is far from terrible. In fact it's pretty fantastic in this one. I could almost see this as a Rembrandt oil painting.

I agree, Rapunzel is blonde in the original Brothers Grimm tale, so in every medium since she is featured with her long golden hair.
