Hansel and Gretel. by Endling Hansel and Gretel. by Endling
Hansel and Gretel! Dastardly duo that Little Red runs into early on in her journey through Everafter..

Nothing like bastardizing liederhosen into some bizarre costuming fit for mentally ill fairytale characters.. this was fun.
Those are giant candy thingies in Gretel's hair. The little caramel wraps, you know? Traditional 'candy' in my mind. The detailing in her dress are supposed to be reminiscent of candy as well, and sad faces. Probably.. tough to make out now though, haha.
I've enjoyed warping my characters more in terms of proportions. I never wanted an entirely realistic style. I'd rather people look at the subject matter, the concept itself, over whether or not someone's neck is too long, etc.. (animators get away with it all the time) and it definitely gives them more character. Like Hansel's big 'ol ears. :XD: You just wanna tug 'em.

I hope you guys like it. Back to 7/13 commissions..

(Chapter Two of Everafter is coming! I promise!)

Hansel actually looks like a legitimate Tim Burton character. Was that intentional?

Hmmm... I wonder what their story is. Life story that is, not the fairytale.

Yeah, this is a great pic of these two! Love the "twisted" version of these characters, they have a sort of a "steampunk" look to them with their traditional german style dress mixed with metal! They look like slaves, or escaped slaves of the witch that haven't escaped with their sanity or the bonds that were placed on them!

this is just amazing!

I just recently found your "Everafter" comic strip and I fell in love with it!

Their clothes are amazing and really suit them well! The shadowing just blows me away and your detail is just outstanding!
I just enjoy looking at all the detail and artistic magic that you put into your characters! It's so much fun just to read about them and to look at them! :D

I read one of the earlier comments and you mentioned that you ink in Photoshop, do you also colour in Photoshop?
Also how long did this take you to finish?

It's strange, I know she's meant to be a cannibal so I expected her to be covered in blood with a crazy look on her face but she looks completely normal, if I had to guess it would be Hansal that's the cannibal, he just has the look, you know?

Also, at the risk of sounding ignorant, why is she a cannibal? I'm assuming it'll have something to do with the Witch they encountered but I'm curious to know how it all ties in.

All in all it's really well drawn and I can't wait until you update the comic,

I think Gretel's pose is just amazing. The flow of the arms with the dress, and theres a slight halted movement that i cant exactly pin...

I wonder where they got their weapons from? I am sure a giant fork and a flamethrower are not easy things to find. My theory is that the fork came from the Candy Witch and the flamethrower is made from the oven that Hansel was almost cooked in. I really love how Endling always reflects the characters origin story into his design and their psychologiacal disorders.

Also, Gretels cuff says 02 and I know Rosie and Posie are 00 and 01, so does that mean Hansel and Gretel are two of the longest staying inmantes?

Just from their appearances I think that Hansel will be a mute and Gretel with be loud and vulgar. I can't wait for their Everafter reveal.
