Snow White and Rose Red by MuseofLullabys
Snow White and Rose Red
Another one of my favorite Grimm's Fairy Tales, slightly lesser known among the masses as a tale of siblings.

As always, I add my little twists to the tale. The original tale is of two sisters, one with skin white as snow, and the other with hair as red as a rose. Their mother, a widower, raised them in a cottage in the forest, away from town and everything. Snow White and Rose Red were inseparable, with Snow White being more of a book reader and enjoying silence, and Rose Red loving the outdoors and chasing butterflies. One winter's night, a bear had knocked upon their door, asking for a place to stay during the snow storm. While the girls were terrified(and naturally so. Come on, it's a talking fracking bear!), their mother let him stay, and over the winter Snow White and Rose Red became close to the bear, and became the best of friends. He had to leave by spring, much to his dismay, and Snow White in particular was heartbroken. He mentioned before leaving an evil gnome had cast a curse upon him, preventing him from telling who he really was. Given this new piece of information, Snow White asked the creatures of the forest every now and then if they had seen the bear, and Rose Red offered to go picking strawberries to cheer her up. As the girls went about their chores, they heard a tree crash. When they looked to see what had happened, they found the tree had landed on a gnome's beard. Which, to those who do not know, the beard isn't just their pride and joy but also the source of their power. After trying to help pry him from the tree, Snow White used her mother's scissors to cut his beard. He yelled at the girls for cutting his beard, but Snow White and Rose Red asked of their friend, the bear. Circumstances similar to this happened three more times, once with a fish, second with an eagle. After helping him escape the eagle, Snow White and Rose Red came across an abandoned horse. As Snow White ran home to get something, Rose Red was led by the horse to it's fallen owner, a handsome young man who was smitten by her kindness and beauty. After helping him back on his horse, he asked Rose Red if she had seen his brother, to which she replied no. He promised to see her again, and rode off. Only to be interrupted by the gnome, who he recognized. The bear was trying to confront the gnome of his misdeeds, and after a climax of Snow White, Rose Red, the bear, and the young hunter getting to the top of the mountain to face the gnome, the bear killed the gnome. And after his death, the bear was freed from the spell, to which it was revealed that he was the young man's elder brother, and heir to the throne of their kingdom. He thanked Snow White and Rose Red for their kindness, and asked Snow White to wed him, since he favored her. Of course, seeing this his younger brother proposed to Rose Red. And both girls became princesses of the kingdom, and later queens.

The Snow White and Rose Red in my pic are two Appalachian-esque girls. Because well...for those who don't know me, I am Appalachian and proud. So why not have a set of awesome characters from here? :D Snow White's 'real' name is Maybelle Lynn as Rose Red's 'real' name is Clarisse Noelle. Maybelle is very studious, but soft spoken and very insecure in her appearance due to her not having the typical 'disney' looks. With her adorably larger nose, and fluffier size. She wants to become a nurse or a teacher, something that requires her to depend on her mind as opposed to her looks. Clarisse is actually a twig, with a bit of a cooky personality and is practically always happy. She loves Maybelle dearly, and loves the outside just as much. Especially chasing butterflies and looking at the stars. The bear prince in question, I've been torn between having him be the typical European prince ooor having him be a native american chief's son. Not too sure yet, but what I do know of him is that he was tricked by the gnome because he wanted a way out of becoming king/chief since he feared being a leader at the time. His falling in love with Maybelle didn't happen over night, since in my version it was over a few winters that he stayed with the girls. Over the years he slowly fell in love with Maybelle by seeing her grow into a kindhearted woman as opposed to the typical Disney love at first sight crap xD And no worries, Clarisse ends up with someone too. Just a year or so after the story ends. When the prince/chief's son's brother opens his mouth to propose, the says to him 'Don't even think it.'. But she holds his hand :)

My background's a little better, and I'm hoping this is much easier to look at than my last attempt.

Tell me whatcha think!

Viola and Her Six Brothers by MuseofLullabys
Viola and Her Six Brothers
My take on the very under rated Grimm's fairy tale the Six Swans. The tale is of a royal family of seven, one princess and six princes, whose father remarries the daughter of a witch after the mysterious death of their mother. She causes the death of the king, and seeks to kill the royals, but they manage to hide in the wilderness. However, they couldn't escape the evil queen, who in leu of actually committing the deed casts a spell upon the royals, all save the girl who was hiding, to be trapped as swans for eternity. However, once she fleed, the princess discovered a loophole to the spell. If she made a sweater for each of her brothers over the course of seven years from a specific flower, they would return to themselves. But, she mustn't smile nor cry nor laugh. As the years go by, a king from a far away kingdom finds her in the forest while hunting and decides to make her his bride. At the christening of the royal heir, the evil queen returns, catching the princess when she was alone and stealing her baby, but smearing her own blood over her mouth to make it look as though she ate the child. Since the princess could not speak to fend for herself, due to her being so close to finishing the sweaters, and against the king's defenses, parliament decides to put the girl to death at the steak. It wasn't until the fire began that her brothers returned to her after being gone for seven years, and the king flung the sweaters to the swans, who returned to their more princely selves. Now freed from her obligation, the princess could fend for herself, stating that it was the evil queen who had stolen her baby. The baby was returned as the evil queen was burned. And happily ever after and all that.

:) I don't think Disney has the cajones to really do this, but if they were to tackle this fariytale obviously some things would have to be tweaked a bit. I decided to make her a lady of color because why not? It's how she came to my mind when I drew her, and I think she's striking :) Her name is Princess Viola Odoska, of the kingdom of Ul'Kina. The late king and queen of Ul'Kina have been known to take in children from orphanages in the past, but Viola is pure-born of the king and queen. Her brothers are Fredrick, Antoine, Rapheal, Rha Khan, Ling Que, and Iccirus. And why can't you tell which one's which in the pic? Well, because the spell stated that every Odoska in her sight would become a swan. And well, they're all princes, adopted or otherwise :)

And I'll admit my backgrounds are weak, but it's hard to make an original background without using images on google for me. I'm always afraid of copywright.

Anyway, tell me what you think!

My Muse: Where She Is by MuseofLullabys
My Muse: Where She Is
not gonna lie, this came from a convo between me and :iconfe-qwaser: one night, when talking about our lack of inspiration and such. I didn't get to draw his muse, my apologies, but I did get the idea out on paper :D

News abound!

On the topic of my moving, through careful consideration and the like, I've made a decision. Although I'm greatful to my friends for allowing me the opportunity to come down, I've decided that it was better if I stayed home during the holiday seasons, and to do my best to get my license and get a better job. Make no mistake, I want to move one day, but at the moment I've discovered I'm not ready yet. In a way, I'm relieved that that pressure isn't weighting on me anymore, but in a way I'm a little sad that I was a little too scared to take that kind of risk yet. But, I want to make the best of the decision I made :)

Hello everyone! I haven't updated in a while, so let me fill you in on how life's going. About the same as always minus one major possibility, which given the title, is the subject I'm seg-waying into.

For a while I've been very discreet about this, except for a few RP buddies, but since it's getting crunch time and my nerves are aflutter I'll let you guys in: A few friends I've known since Highschool offered me a place to stay while I find a job in Arkansas. And while my life in the mountains isn't anything to really complain over, I've been leaning on going. Home life is fine, I'm getting along as good as always with my family. I love my family. To be honest, going to a different state to look for a job is the hardest choice I've contemplated as an adult *coughtechnicaladultcough*.

However, in the days before I actually purchase the ticket ala Point of No Return, my anxiety and fears, maybe nervousness exaggerated, are going into overdrive. Yeah, I've wanted to travel for a while now, but what if I go down there and fail? What if I can't find a job? What if I fail miserably? What if the people down there make fun of me like I was here(for a while, at least)? What if I can't come to see my family when they need me, something that is VERY important to me.

See, it was different when I went away to college. While getting an education, I was essentially at adultish summer camp; not too far from home but still safe and happy. This is different. Me going to Arkansas will be my first official attempt of making it on my own, like an adult. (of course, we all know adult is a technical term here xD )

I know moving will help me expand my job. I know there are MANY more jobs in Arkansas than where I am right now, and even if I stay I'm at least a few months in the hole until the stores that are under construction are built. Opertunity is knocking, but for the first time in my life I'm almost too afraid to open the door and see if there are stairs or a drop ledge waiting on me. Maybe I'm afraid of growing up. Most likely, I'll admit I'm afraid of failure. I considered myself a failure at this point last year due to the emotional and job situation I was in, mostly because of my own procrastination and/or planning in the wrong things.

So, essentially what I'm saying is...I'm scared. Nervous? Afraid? I don't know, maybe a bit of it all. Monday or wendsday of this week is when I choose to order the ticket or stay where I am.

I know the choice I need to make, but I guess I'm just nervous and afraid of failing.

Hello! Name's Museoflullabys, but I go by Daisy on here unless you've got me on Facebook.

Welcome to my DA page :) I'm a nerd of many mediums, and at the moment predominately a drawing hobbyist, although my dream is to become either a comic artist or a author. If you like my doodles or if you want to talk, then feel free to send a message! :D

Art Trades include both digital art and literature, but for quicker results literature is the better of the two. I am willing to write from a G rating all the way to an R, but I do have limitations. If you'd like an art trade, message me on either the comments below, note, or find me on Skype.

I do take commissions and Art Trades(mainly between friends). If you like my drawing style or writings and would want to commission me yourself, once again leave me a note or message and I'd be happy to get back with you! I also have a facebook page for my commission work linked here: www.facebook.com/groups/674240…
