Rapunzel by ssst Rapunzel by ssst
This one is for the "So I herd u liek progress? A Fan Art Contest"!! :la: You can find the article right here: [link]

So this was a lot of fun. Finding a fanart piece I did and felt like revamping was tricky, ended up going far back into art I made and rather forget at this point, but it's allll part of the progress, right? So yeah, I landed on a piece I made in 2005:



Good times :lol: Anyway, my re-interpretation/revamp is obviously the drawing you're viewing!

It's a fanart of Rapunzel, the way I pictured her when reading the Grimm Fairy tales - not the Disney version :) I kept the same format as I put it in 2005 and played with the hair like I did then. I remember trying to touch the 'Art Nouveau' style when working on the 2005 version (I failed, but that's okay :aww:), and so I kept that thought somewhat in mind while working on this 2011 version!

I'm pleased with it! Hope you all enjoy as well =D

LOVELY! :aww: Oh, and while this isn't technically 'fan art' in dA terms, it is still accepted in the fan art gallery ("In any case, your work is welcome in the Fan Art category even if it is based on something public domain ... ") from Fan Art: A Guide by $ArtisticAunJuli :la:

Y'know, this is cool and all, but it doesn't qualify as "fan art." Fan art is art involving legally copywritten characters. Rapunzel is a public domain character. However, the Disney version of her is copywritten (to Disney) and art of their rendition would be considered fan art.

But no, this itself isn't "fan art" by the definition of the site.
