The Slaves by 4th-of-May The Slaves by 4th-of-May
The Slaves of the Witch

Hansel & Gretel (c) Grimm

Hello there ! (message en français un peu plus bas ^__^ !)

I spent a lot of time on this drawing because of the background ....drawing flower is so ....so boring !
I hope you'll like it ,I put a lot of love inside ^-^ !

Little explanation :
Well ,this is my japanese version of Hansel & Gretel ,I didn't follow step by step the tale but I kept the spirit :
Hansel and his sister are the Witch's prisoners .
The old woman wants to eat Hansel but he is not big enough for her ,so ,she asks Gretel to feed him a lot .
She did but one day ,Gretel pushes the Witch on the oven and kills her .
I wanted to draw the Witch and I did ...but just her head ! XD

---------------------------------------------------

Petite explication :
Bon alors pour ce conte je n'ai pas totalement suivit l'histoire originale ,j'ai un peu essayé de l'adapter à la sauce japonaise .
Donc ,Hansel et sa soeur Gretel sont devenus les esclaves de la Sorcière .
Tandis que Hansel est fait prisonnier ,Gretel a pour ordre de le nourrir abondamment tout les jours ,le but étant qu'il grossisse pour être ensuite mangé par la sorcière .
Elle s'exécute mais un jour ,elle réussi a tuer la sorcière en la poussant dans un four .
J'ai modifié la façon dont elle meurt parce que j'ai remarqué que les japonais aimaient bien mettre des têtes dans des boites (non ?) ,en plus ,j'avais vraiment envie de mettre une touche glauque hihihi !

------------------------------------------------------------

IMPORTANT :
Only the patterns on their Yukata and the box are not drawn by me !

This is really pretty, and do you think maybe, you could do a follow up to this picture, like maybe the part where they escape?
