Devil takes the Hindmost by Kiyouko Devil takes the Hindmost by Kiyouko
I can't seem to draw extremely well with the tablet recently so I went back to some basic watercolour drawings~
My friend showed me a song from her favourite musical: 'Love Never Dies' and I loved the title of the song but unfortunately not the song itself ;u;

So here is some random and quickly painted original artwork to keep you occupied while I study more anatomy and colouring techniques~

Tools: Reeves Watercolours, PS contrast edit

Eh, it's very messy actually ._. I just splashed a few colours on... I'm surprised it even got popular... I feel guilty now for people that spent longer than me trying to make their artwork look beautiful and it doesn't get recognised as much as this.

well either way the result was good in the end :iconheavyisokwiththisplz:
just because something was easier to make doesn't mean it's not good art c:

still not everyone can't just paint like this from doing random splatters so that shows that you at least somewhat were aware of what you were doing c:

yeah i often see people not getting enough attention for their hard works.
buuuuuut you DO submit your drawings in a lot of groups to that's one of the reasons why your stuff gets a bit more popular ^^
speaking of dA groups i should add my drawings to more of those. but i don't know any groups who would accept my art D:
well maybe i'll take a look around later when i have more time ^^'
oh and how is the anatomy working out for you? still difficult? :c

The first thing I thought of when seeing this pic was Red Riding Hood. xD I know thats not what you were going for... but you have no idea how this speaks to me. xD
See, in this book series, Red Riding Hood is a psycho little girl who can't get pass the family she lost. It's said that the Wolf caused her to go insane after witnessing her grandma being eaten. Once she was insane her parents abandoned her and she's been orphaned and feared by anyone near her since. She's only a minor character in the series but she does have a powerful backstory and you portrayed it beautifully without trying. xD <3

Wow reading what you wrote, it does look a little like an angrier/more insane version of red riding hood! Good spotting! I am quite intrigued into reading more of this. Where can I find the book series?

It is a completed book series called Sisters Grimm. Granted, it's a kids book, but its pretty dark for a kids book. There are 9 books, the first being called Fairy Tale Detectives. I'm sure you can find it at your nearest library. :)

Basically, it's about 2 girls who are sent to live with their grandma who lives in a very small town called Ferryport Landing. The girls learn about their ancestors, who were the famous fairy tale writers, the Brothers Grimm. But they learn that the fairy tales that their ancestors wrote, weren't actually fairy tales but accounts of stories that actually happened. Many of those people recorded in fairy tales (such as Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Pinocchio, Rumplestilskin, ect) live in Ferryport Landing and are trapped inside by a magical barrier which surrounds it to keep them from becoming too powerful and overpowering the humans. The girls job is to keep the town in check and make sure the fairy tale people don't get in trouble.

Like I said, Red Riding Hood is a minor character. She's introduced in the 3rd book called The Problem Child.

I have heard of Brothers Grimm, it was a film I once watched which sounds similar to what you said~ What a good movie it was!

I am quite interested in these kind of stories, I shall try and find this in the library. Reading childhood favourites but with a nice twist seems quite fascinating :D

I really hope you like the series if you read it. :) It's one of my favorites now. <3
