vii - Drowning by CrimsonMagpie vii - Drowning by CrimsonMagpie
Seventh painting for my 'dark fairy-tale' project.

The badger has recovered from his burns so the rabbit has hatched another revenge plan for the badger; he makes a wooden boat for himself, clay boat for the badger, and they go out fishing together. When the badger's boat disintegrates he pleads for the rabbit to rescue him, only attacked and drowned.

What lovely things fairytales are. :meow:



Acrylic on paper 29.7 x 42cm 11.69 x 16.54"

Genuine original fairytales are like this, and cartoons are if you know where to look. ;)

Thanks. :meow:

Oh the horrors of the animal kingdom. They're a bit tamer this end. Seen a pigeon steal a squirrels lunch money the other day. But they made up after. Excellent painting once again feller!

That's just morbid, twisted and sick.

I :heart: it. How great it would be if you could publish a book including this, then slip a copy or two in the kids' section of a library, just to watch the reactions... :evillaugh:

Hahah, thanks! :iconpringlesplz:

I did actually make a book of it, but I did it by hand so there's only one copy. I also added a surprise ending. :iconsecretplz:

You're welcome!

You should SO mass produce this, then the media would have to attribute murders to kids reading books, not playing video games! Hehe :D

Iunno, I don't think the illustrations are really good enough to publish. . . A revamped version would be good though. :bucktooth:

I think something like that has the potential to become popular if you were to create it in comic form, like a series... for speciality comic and collectable shops like "Forbidden Planet"...etc

I'd love to see it!

Ooh, I actually did some comic-type artwork for the second part of the module (that I've yet to upload). I did not really get on with that sort of format, although one can but practice. :bucktooth:

It looks great and can't tell it's rushed. I hate to see the Badger go. I really like him.

Not your best work. The badger is way better than the rabbit, which is a shame cos the rabbit seems to be the focus. The back of the boat looks kind of cartoony.

I'm not sure. . . the module brief mentioned making a fairy-tale dark to the point that you wouldn't let kids read it. :bucktooth:

In view of that I think I made it a little too much like just a childrens book with blood.

Thanks. :hug:

Hmm, it is hard to believe that badger go with that rabbit for a trip after that all - I was thinking that this time he will do something like that.

i would never see a child do something like this.
don't sell yourself short. you can't produce your best work all the time and even if you don't think this is good, many others will.

i never thought the rabbit would do something so vicious.
no matter what the badger did... this is a very harsh tale. I've not read it before so i didn't know what to expect.
it's all so harsh! :cry:

Thank-you for the kind words, but you'll never see the mess I made of the waves before I repainted them. :iconsecretplz:

Well, the project brief did say "dark fairy-tales", so I tried to find the most violent one I could. :bucktooth:
