Six Swans by CannedTalent Six Swans by CannedTalent
Whooooo this is a piece of shit.
Tried my teacher's method of painting transparently.
Didn't work for me.
But at least I learned that much.
Best just to sweep it aside and carry on 8[


Assignment was to illustrate a fairytale/myth/children's story for a show at the local Children's Hospital.

This is for Six Swans.
Girl's brothers get turned into swans by evil stepmother, only way to get them turned back is for girl to remain silent for six years while she makes six shirts (one for each brother) out of Aster flowers (which she starts doing in a tree).
That makes sense right?

Watercolor.
and lots of bullshit.

I think it's lovely! The swans flying past in the background really make this piece--I always thought of her as being lonely throughout the story, at least until the prince finds her, but this shows her brothers keeping her company at least a little bit, and that makes it much happier.
