Twisted Fairy Tale by Shira-chan Twisted Fairy Tale by Shira-chan
My entry for the Twisted Fairytales Contest. Sleeping Beauty!

I didn't use the Disney designs, cause I didn't want Prince Phillip getting eaten by a zombie ^^;

This picture took three days, between 5 and 8 hours each day... I think it's a record for me. I rarely take that long to finish a picture. But I went full shading on everything and texture-happy, so there was a lot of little detail involved in this that normally isn't there in my other comic pages.

I deliberately wanted to try a strictly horizontal panel layout like you see in a lot of comic books these days. I declare it a success.

For the record, I love this. :D

This is very nice. The shading is well done and the people are well porportioned. The princess transforming into her zombie form is very creative and it's nice how the face looks the same as it goes through its transformations. The prince's intenstine is also well done.
The coloring is also nice. It's clean with no scratchy lines. The panel with just the red and the black shadows is fantastic.
I think that when you show a close up on her face, there could be a little more shading, maybe around the eyes and under the eyebrows.
But other than that, I don't have any other critiques!
Very nice work.
What do you think?

This is truly remarkable! I love how this starts off in a very romantic type style and tradition only to go wrong, so very wrong for our prince charming. Your flow from Sleeping Beauty's transformation is just spot on. the prince's face looks absolutely terrifying and the last panel is gruesomely cool.

I can really see that after she is done feasting on his organ that she would return to her slumber and wait for her next Prince to try and wake her up. Shira-chan, you are an artist who constantly gets better and better. I salute you! I wish you the best in the contest!
