The Evil Mother, Marleen and the boy.
This is from one of the projects I'm working on at the moment. I'm illustrating two Brothers Grimm stories for the ipad for a publisher focusing on illustrated electronic books. One of them is actually one of my all time favorite Grimm's tale. I remember taking out a dusty tome from my small town library at about age 9 or 10 and devouring story after story. Going back to the library and scouring the shelves for more. Here are some work in process shots with the final image. Enjoy :)
