Sleeping Beauty by algenpfleger Sleeping Beauty by algenpfleger
It's been a while since I last did a personal piece, so when the chance came around in the form of the Bobby Chiu Fairy Tale Challenge, I wanted to really take some time for it. And I'm glad I did!


Sleeping Beauty is an incredibly inspiring tale I think, and I hope some of that made it into the painting.


Done over 8 or 9 days, all in Photoshop, and as usual without references. But boy, I'm glad I got a new computer. The final file is 800MB, with I don't know how many layers, certainly more than a hundred, at 6400*2700 px.

Here's the steps!

I saw this pic awhile back and came across it again today.

I should have said it earlier but this is a fantastic piece of work and was part of my inspiration for a fanfic I started writing last year.

Beautiful job!

Wow so realistic... very interesting setting! I really like how you did Sleeping Beauty and the prince... sort of eerie. Some big plant monster is going to come out or something the closer he approaches. Lol
