princess and the pea by chuckometti princess and the pea by chuckometti
This is again for :iconchildrensillustrator:
this month's topic was "the princess and the pea"

The story goes more or less like this:

A prince is searching for a princess he can marry, but he just can't find any suitable candidate.
One day when it's really bucketing down a beautiful girl seeks shelter in his castle and claims to be a princess. The prince falls in love with her instantly, but his mother is not a woman who is easily convinced.
Therefore she lets the girl sleep on a huge pile of blankets and mattresses and puts a pea underneath them.
The next morning the girl complains that she has slept on something really hard and got bruised by it and, since only a true princess can be such a sissy, she's finally allowed to marry the prince.
They lived happily ever after although life must be very hard when you're that sensitive^^

I read a version where the prince secretly puts rocks under her mattress with the pea.

What a beautiful artwork! I scrolled down very slowly to savor the details. I love the colors, prints and textures of the different mattresses--I found the pea! I love the night kerchief on the sleeping moon. The prince and princess are so cute--I love that he is blushing! Oh and your notes are so funny! Yes, after reading this tale (which I loved) I often wondered how they would live happily ever after if she was so delicate! ;)

What a gorgeous illustration. It almost becomes interactive when you have to keep scrolling down and down, finally getting to the punchline of the prince :D

I just like these really long formats,
I would have loved to make the pile of mattresses even higher, but you have to know where to stopXD

i wonder if this tale was created as a satire all those hundreds of years ago, to mock royalty?
Reply
:iconchuckometti:
chuckometti Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2009
I don't know,
but I think it's not unlikely since people thought that royals were really different from the common people, in a biological wayXD
thanks for the comment :glomp:

hmmm... hadn't thought of that.

but then again, a lot of people were cynical even then i think... just think of how cynical most of us become about our government during college...

:iconchuckometti:
chuckometti Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2009
yes you're quite right^^
I think people always liked to mock the "higher class" a bitXD
maybe that was also part of the fairy tale,
but I also think that lots of girls can really identify with the princess on the pea, me tooXD
