Dornroeschen by avisnocturna Dornroeschen by avisnocturna
I could finally find some time to do a personal piece again. The idea of painting a re-interpretation of the fairy-taile "sleeping beauty" was in my head for quite a while and it changed quite a bit during the process. So here's a little horror version of the heroine, breaking free of the castle and fighting her way through the thorn-forest

cool image but how she woke up is going to need explanation.

Super Perspektive, sehr schöne Farbgebung, die Details in der Rüstung sind genial (Jedes einzelne Kettenglied schattiert - wow!) und das Beste: ein emotionaler Gesichtsausdruck, der genau die Stimmung des Bildes rüber bringt. Gefällt mir richtig gut!

Gern mehr :)!

This is stunning! I love your interpretation of this fairytail. Women have to be strong to fight their own way trough life :) The coloring is beautiful and how you manage to get depth by using brighter colors in the background.

Amazing, I like the monochromatic colour scheme, it really creates a creepy mood :D
The armour looks awesome, I'd really like to see a close-up of the torso part :XD: I've almost never seen an heroine with an axe, almost all the badass female warrior I've seen were wielding a sword =p
So great concept, and majestic execution with stunning rendering, one of my favourite pieces of yours !

Thank you very much ! On the contrary, I find it very clean for a real size detail, you seem to be a very tidy person =p
It's very instructive for me to be able to see the brush strokes sometimes. On some paintings such as this one, you just can't figure out how it was painted as it seems too complex and detailed for just having been painted. It's very inspiring to see that in the end, it really just is about simple brush strokes elegantly arranged together, there's no magic trick, just mastery :)

Fantastic work! Extra points for intense atmosphere and idea. I love how you paid tribute to the much darker (real) nature of the Brothers' Grimm fairy tales.

Die Rüstungs sieht absolut fantastisch aus! Aber auch die "Horrorfilm-Atmosphäre" kommt dank Nebel und dem blaugrauen Farbschema sehr gut rüber. Ich bin sehr angetan :)
