The Frog Prince by JenZee The Frog Prince by JenZee
Fairytale adventure times...! The Frog Prince was two-evenings of doodlishousness. I was pretty surprised because as far as I could tell, the fairytale was teaching us to lie, act spoiled and violent in order to become rich, powerful and famous... I guess the Brothers Grimm were not far off! Kissing the frog has nothing to do with the original story...go figure!

There's some blood...wonder if I should...MATURE this up D:?


Thanks in advance for your support, feedback, taking the time to look and of COURSE being AWESOME all y'all <3!

Most people don't know the original story... The story's a warning against premature sexuality. HE THROWS HIM AGAINST THE WALL, FOR GOD'S SAKE! How did death turn into a KISS? wow

I didn't notice the blood either, but I do like this interpretation more (not quite sure why).

So in the original story the Princess sacrifice a frog, so she can "summon" a beatiful healthy Prince?

The lighting is delightfully spectral. Also, the girl, in pose and coloring, looks far more like a frog than the princely man figure ever could. :)

The original version also said she had lost a gold phallus, not a gold ball...

i loved it but i think that the focus point, her face should have more work\detail\contrast and from there down less and less work/detail/contrast i just don't think it's 100% finished just yet.

it's very well balanced in terms of visual presentation. I really like the main figure and how parts of the story of the subject or partially hidden but still inform you of the actual concept.
nice one on the frog as well ;) noisy little buggers

I really love what you did with this - there's a lot of storytelling going on here. I really like the reflection in the water, too.

I've found that a lot of the old fairytales can be interpreted in positive or negative ways, depending on how you look at them. You could read the Frog Prince as meaning that you should be kind to everyone, regardless of what they look like, because they could be an amazing person underneath their ugliness.

I was also surprised when I read the original fairytale - actually, a lot of the Grimm tales seem to have questionable morals. Go figure. Lovely work by the way!
