iii - Fury by CrimsonMagpie iii - Fury by CrimsonMagpie
Third illustration for the 'dark fairy-tale' project.

The wicked badger has tricked the farmer's wife into letting him go and proceeds to kill her, cut her up and make her into soup.

I liked the idea of making my fairy-tale dark not through literally dark paintings but by keeping it fairly benign but with the odd explosion of graphic and unpleasant violence. I hope this fits the bill. :bucktooth:

In order to fully illustrate this part of the book I chose to do a composite scene, I think it's the first one I've ever done.



Acrylic on paper, 29.7 x 42cm / 11.7 x 16.54"

Excellent painting job. Although, I must confess it is the theme of this painting which makes nothing less than extraordinary!

Such a late reply!

Thanks, I'm glad you like it! I didn't think the theme anything special though; gory art seems to be quite popular! =p

Greusome, although at first I thought it was just a weird wolf.
