Take it! by skillywidden
Take it!

Second illustration for the fairy tale “Petrosinella” (“Parsley”) -  by Giambattista Basile – the Italian version of “Rapunzel”.

It’s the scene where the ogress once again tells Petrosinella to remind her mother of the promise she’d made a long time ago– which was to give her the child when it was born – and Petrosinella repeats her mother’s reply: “Take it!”

The story can be read here: www.surlalunefairytales.com/ra…

The Parsley Thief by skillywidden
The Parsley Thief

Illustration for the fairy tale “Petrosinella” (“Parsley”) -  by Giambattista Basile – the Italian version of “Rapunzel”.

Done this after a conversation with fireburner543 who wanted to see an entire fairy tale illustrated in this style and he chose “Petrosinella”  - so this is just the first of about 9 illustrations.

The story can be read here:

The Shepherd And The Princess by skillywidden
The Shepherd And The Princess

Scene from the fairytale “The Shepherd And The Princess”, written by Queen Marie - Regina Maria of Romania.

The shepherd Razvan, one day comes across a tower where a princess is held captive by her evil stepmother and falls in love with her. He can’t think of anything else but the beautiful princess and how lonely she is in her tower and wishes there was a way to help her. The river advises him to seek out the witch for help, who lives along its banks near an old oak “with three arms that are dead”. The old witch agrees to help him in exchange for his hope and turns him into a nightingale so he can ease the princess grief with his songs.

The nightingale brought much joy to the captive and the day she was rescued by a prince she caged the little bird so she would have it always by her side. With time the bird was forgotten and it wasted away in its golden cage.

It is a beautifully written story and can be read in its entirety here:

Thank you, Garry. I am delighted you think so, although I’ve been drawing a lot less lately than I would have liked.

You’ve been absent for too long, will you upload new art soon?
