a quick scribble of a manga idea that i had for a while but never realized due to lack of drawing skill... maybe i'll scrap it later...

4 a long time i have always wanted to do a really storybook-like gothic style manga with cute & dark characters... but it's not really a style that is easy to learn... & i am not the type to draw something that is not a part of my own style...

so it took me a while to create this new style of drawing... so what do u think of it...? i think it needs a bit more polishing because i want the character to look even more deformed and unbalanced & extreme...

guess i need more practice...

oh, & about the story itself, this is a rendition of the most famous fairy-tale of all... cinderella... but instead of the sweet happy2 disney version... i want 2 do the darker brothers grimm version... where there is no fairy godmother... but a tree...

hmmm... as usual i seem to really like autumn don't i...? it's always autumn in many of my mangas... XP

don't know when will i b able to really work on this though... with so many work to do... :faint:

I think this is a wonderful start and I really like this style (not that I don't enjoy all of your work). ;) I adore Brothers Grimm and well fairytales in general...suffice it to say that my interest is captured. ^_^

Dark fairytale + fall = win. :heart:

I think she is very cute. Maybe if you added in some cob webbing to the house it would make it seem creepier. Don't make the roof tiling or the house's siding look so perfect either. Put chips and cracks and such in it. As for the girl..I think you could even just rely on a proper color scheme to make her seem creepier to fit the brother's grimm story. But that's just my two cents. :)
