i’ve posted drafts of these before but never altogether- here’s my final capstone illustration project! from top to bottom we have: beauty and the beast, the little mermaid, red riding hood, rapunzel, and golilocks & the three bears. click through for full res!
I was thinking about who I could dress up for Halloween, and the Lunar Chronicles ladies were the most obvious outcome. I’m actually surprised I haven’t done it before. I started a bit last minute, but I made it :) So here are Cinder, Cress, Scarlet and Winter dressed in the dresses of the fairy tales their stories were based on ^.^
I considered the Red Riding Hood story with KuroKen, but couldn’t think of a good plot to go with it, so I just drew a mini version of it (aka the nice bits). I think Kuroo makes a hawt, swaggy Big Bad Wolf. (=゜ω゜)
The whole book work is coloured black entirely by hand, save for a single drawing. Inspired by Perrault’s version of “Little Red Riding-Hood,” in which the young heroine is not saved by the woodcutter and instead dies inside the wolf. The cut-outs mimic a ‘stomach’ in which the figure will lie when the book is closed, trapped in darkness.
Okay it took me a whole while to actually do the comic and I’m sorry, but here’s the first page soooo… Also I hate this font and lineart is a pain in the ass to make, so I’m probably gonna change the way I do the next pages.
Movies Bloodborne fans should watch: (if you ask me :P)
Brotherhood of the Wolf (French movie about the Beast of Gévaudan. Bloodborne’s fashion is most likely inspired by its beautiful costumes.)
Bram Stoker’s Dracula (Cainhurst? Cainhurst. Cheesy at times.)
Crimson Peak (Gothic romance at its finest.)
Hellboy 1 / 2 - The Golden Army (Just watch the two movies, okay? SO GOOD.)
Van Helsing (yeah yeah, I know this one isn’t that great. WHO CARES! harmless fun with crazy weaponry and big monsters.)
Mary Reilly (the classic tale of Dr.Jekyll & Mr.Hyde seen from the point of view of Jekyll’s housemaid who, obviously, has a crush on him. )
From Hell (Jack the Ripper. Johnny Depp, Alan Moore, lots of drugs.)
The Whisperer in the Darkness (The best adaptation of Lovecraft’s story of the same name.)
Red Riding Hood (this movie gets all the hate just because it has the same director as Twilight but is a pretty decent movie with great atmosphere and a nice twist near the end. It’s not that easy to figure out who’s the wolf! My only complaint about this flick is that the actors are waaaay too attractive in pure young-adult romance fashion. Still worth a watch.)
Tenshi no Tamago (aka Angel’s Egg. Weird, visually stunning, very esoteric and reminds me a ton of Fishing Hamlet for some reason. The plot is cryptic and mysterious, just like Bloodborne’s.)
The Company of Wolves (a weird classic based upon Angela Carter’s dark fairytales ~♡)
Pride, Prejudice and Zombies (It’s better than you think.)
Goya’s Ghosts (SPANISH INQUISITION! Heresy! Torture! Drama! Doesn’t “look” like Bloodborne, but the themes are there and is overall a good historical movie with great actors.)
Penny Dreadful (TV series. This one is a mixed bag for me, but the photography is stunning and Victorian to the core. Rushed ending tho. And a lot of gratuitous sex scenes that don’t go anywhere. I warned you.)
Taboo (TV series. PRETTY NICE)
Solomon Kane (PURITAN DUDE KILLS STUFF)
Hellsing Ultimate (Anime OVA which needs no introduction.)
