Hansel and the Witch by sax-loves-fat Hansel and the Witch by sax-loves-fat
Download for fullview.

Oh no! Original characters! Run for your lives!
:iconaustralia-mateplz::icondamnitplz:

For those of you who didn't run away, this is my nod to every FA's favorite fairy tale: Hansel and Gretel. Except I say 'Screw Gretel' and turned it into a 'love' story. Because I'm the artist, and I can do that. (that's also why it's just a nod instead of a retelling)

Hansel A farm boy in a small German village, Hansel is just one of over a dozen children in his family. He doesn't really stand out in any way, and is very muted and docile, so his parents, his siblings and most of the town folk don't pay him much attention. He spends his days quietly helping his father with everything that needs doing and taking care of his younger brothers and sisters. But then he starts getting kidnapped....

Witch Not much is known about her except that she will do ANYTHING to get what she wants. And what she wants is a fat man. Lately she's been kidnapping Hansel and stuffing him until he escapes, and she's very good at what she does. She's probably done this to other handsome boys in other towns before getting tired of them and moving on. Hansel doesn't know that she has chosen him as her new favorite, and instead fears he has done something to upset this powerful witch to make her chase him down like this.

Yes, I don't have a name for the witch yet, but I'm open to suggestions, so if you think of one that suits her, I'd love to hear it! =D

There... is... so much cute in this. Like a sense of whimsy that matches, NAY surpasses (at least cause they never do it anymore) Disney. I love it for reasons I can't even explain. Its just... so... lovely ;w;

Well, I always find inspiration in the childhood classics. (I'm even listening to Gospel Truth from Hercules now XD) But since most of the movies we remember from back then were good ones (because the bad ones would have been forgotten) there is always some aspect of storytelling one can learn from them. Like Hercules and The Theif and the Cobbler, while not magnificent movies of themselves, have amazing visual design that's different from what most animated works go for. The Prince of Egypt proves that just because it's animated, doesn't mean it can't be epic, and Babe shows that a movie doesn't have to be epic to be great. And Animal House....well that's just proof that good jokes don't age....and it's like my favorite comedy, so I watch it all the time. XD

I'd say the same thing, but I don't think much of my music is inspired by childhood classics :P

Still, glad that you have such appreciation of such classics. So many wonderful choices are in the past there are.

OH yes, that was like a miniature Renaissance, especially for animated movies, since the technology was just coming about. And you know, I tried to be fair to the new movie makers, and think of a really great recent movie....but none are coming to mind....

Yes, I was going to do a more straight forward version of the story, but that didn't seem like as much fun. So I came up with this! Gah, I can never seem to tell someone else's story without twisting it out of recognition. :iconheaddeskplz:
