Rapunzel and Her Pet Bird by BetterthanBunnies Rapunzel and Her Pet Bird by BetterthanBunnies
I've been signed up to Deviantart since May but haven't figured out how to post anything. Hopefully I'm getting this right!

I've always thought it'd be a cute Rapunzel story if she had a pet bird that couldn't fly because its tail was too long, so it was a prisoner too. This was great fun to paint and I liked it so much it's my avatar now. Fun! A couple of other frames of Rapunzel can be seen on my blog. (www.studelcookies.blogspot.com). Thanks y'all

The idea of the bird with the long tail kind of reminds me of Gertrude McFuzz, a Dr Seuss charachter!

Oh my, that's adorable. I love how Rapunzel looks like a little girl who's about to put the birdy through a traumatically embarrassing makeover~:heart:

a) this is sweet and adorable!
b) have you ever read the Dr. Seuss story about Gertrude McFuzz (one of the stories in the Yertle the Turtle collection)?

Gertrude McFuzz was always one of my very favorite Seuss stories...but then vanity is probably my favorite cardinal sin, so...

I love the painterly feel you put into it! She looks so cute and her face and hair are fantastic, amazing! Surprising is that you don't have as many comments here as you should! But it seems as if only deviations with "Blah blah anime thing" get many comments. Bad taste, I say! I also love your avatar! ;)
