The Thorn and the Bloom Line Art by AngelaSasser The Thorn and the Bloom Line Art by AngelaSasser
EDIT: I added some finishing touches to this piece, which will be up for auction here next week!

Contest Entry: ladydove7.deviantart.com/art/T…
Line art: ladydove7.deviantart.com/art/T…
Side by side view: ladydove7.deviantart.com/art/T…

This is the line art/work-in-progress for my entry to the Bring Your Vision to Life contest. I just hope I can get it colored before the deadline! This image is meant to work when viewed upside down as well as rightside up.

I will save the full explanation of the meaning and story behind this picture for the final version. For now, all I will say is that this picture plays on the themes of good and evil in the story of Rapunzel as I have re-interpreted it for my Rapunzel comic.

Mother Gothel and the Maiden Rapunzel. Is either one truly good or truly evil?

Pen and Ink on Illustration Board, 8x13 Inches.

It's honestly getting an entire re-draw at this point! I realize looking back on this old sketch that I wanted to watercolor it, but the scissors were drawn wrong. <_<  (shhhhh!)  I'd like to give this topic my best go at my current skill level anyways!  Maybe with a more ornate border involving hair and flowers surrounding them. Mmmm details!

You'll sort it out. :D

Meanwhile, I am uncovering our compressor so that I can blow all the dust that got into my supposedly protected 15 flat file drawers (full of originals, prints, stock for next month's shows, ......) when the team refinishing the oak hardwood floors in the house sanded the floor in my studio. Joy.

To say this is gorgeous line work, would be a vast understatement. My goodness this takes my breath away.

The Mask, the one with Jim Carrey not the one with Cher in it.

This is a really amazing composition...it reminds me of the Little Mermaid one...I really like the upside down thing...I think it's quite a signature of your work...I can't wait to see this colored, but I already love it as it is...great job! I love the flowy hair on the girl upside down.

Aah a good eye you have, m'dear! This was actually one of the sketches for the same assignment I did the Little Mermaid picture for (where we were to draw a picture that could work both rightside up and upside down). I ended up going with the mermaids instead, but I always liked the thumbnail I did for this theme and dug it back out again for the good vs evil contest.

I'm not exactly happy with the digital version I did...so may be watercoloring this traditionally, if time permits!

Wow, love the theme and composition in this! It's beautiful and very flowing. When you finish it, maybe put it together with a flipped version so it can be appreciated both ways? :)

Yup yup! I plan to upload a flippy version to scraps:D *beams* I'm very proud of it thus far. I've never had to ink SO much hair before. XD
