Aschenputtel feeds her birds by Boschian-Fantasies Aschenputtel feeds her birds by Boschian-Fantasies
The first in my series of "Märchen Gesichter" illustrations.

This is Aschenputtel (aka. Bros. Grimm's Cinderella) feeding her beloved flock of birds.
As you may know, Grimm's version of Cinderella is very, very different from the more well known Charles Perrault, which Walt Disney based his version of Cinderella off of. The Grimms Brother's fairy tales are a lot more darker and a lot more morbid, when it comes to dishing out punishments to the villains of their stories, Aschenputtel included.

The picture was done with high quality Holbein oil pastels, Polychromos pencils, painted with baby oil (baby oil works wonders on oil pastels and oil based colored pencils!), and was drawn on a mixed media board.

She came out beautiful even though she reminded me of the girl from a picture that I did last summer.:)

Good to see that other people remember the true versions.

Yes indeed.

Unlike a lot of fairy tale illustrators, I will be drawing the more gruesome scenes as well. The theme of this art is suppose to be an uncomfortable combination of elegeant and horrifying.

Stay tune to more art.

Aschenputtel sounds a lot more interesting than Cinderella.

Oh believe me, it is a very interesting little tale.

Go check out the first edition of Bros. Grimm's fairy tales. You will be very pleased at how dark and morbid they are.
