Melancholic Princess-alternate by Lunatique-SF Melancholic Princess-alternate by Lunatique-SF
This is an alternate version of this painting:

When I painted it years ago, I originally meant for her to have jewelry, but after finishing the painting, I felt the jewelry took something away from the piece--it distracted too much, and since I painted the jewelry on another layer, it was easy to just turn it off. Anyway, some people seem to like the alternate version, so I've always made it available o the public as well, although the version that those silly internet urban myths used was the one without the jewelry and that's the version that's been passed around the world for all these years.

I hate how people get a beautiful painting and make up some urban legend about it.

Yes this is really beautiful! Some douche on youtube used it and pretended that the artist drew this before they commited suicide. They made a folklore/urban legend out of it which is on for "Creepypasta"

Have you noticed that the picture really does seem to change if you stare into her eyes for more than 5 minutes?

Is your mind, you think is something there, so your mind make it real. I think the shading is amazing.

So cool the video people are making on youtube about this is so dumb! Lol! What kind of paint did you use for this?

Yes, the video "The Scariest Picture on the Internet (REAL)" is dumb, but it is over this video that I have found this deviation :eager:

Aspire123 Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2010
hi, are you the original painter or creator for this artwork? This work is amazing, the myth of her face rotting is even published in the newspaper.

Yeah I saw the and read about that urban and I would be pissed, but then it made you painting famous. How ever they changed the name around which made it hard for me to find you. I really love this painting almost reminds me of Sarah from Labyrinth.

I love the Labyrinth and she does have a sense of Sarah in her <3

Please drop by Seeker of the Way ([link]). I would like you to read the poem there. It matches your princess beautifully.
TimberwolfHQ Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2010
This one is particularly moving. The jewellery adds more poignance to her expression.

I actually saw this before I encountered you; my brother had it saved to the computer. I accidentally found another one of your pictures on the web; and I just had to see if you were here on deviantART.

Good work!
