Rose Madder by psychobitchua Rose Madder by psychobitchua
Sorta illustration to Stephen King's "Rose Madder". The funniest thing is that I read the book 7 years ago and don't remember most of the storyline's details. But she fought the minotaur and she won, didn't she? :lol:

I come from the family with huge domestic violence issues, and it’s probably my favorite book on the subject. Strong symbolism and damn, King writes fucked up women exceptionally well. I always wondered why. :lol:

Thank you. :)

I adore the serie artworks where you used the paper texture as a background. And this one isn't an exception. Just wonderful :faint: Keep up the good work :w00t:

Never read the book, but this looks like it could certainly be on the cover of a novel (Ever notice that 90% of the illustrations on novels absolutely suck? Like something an armature at PS could make... it pisses me off). I absolutely love the composition and the fairytale quality! :clap:

The only book cover I really like is Stephen King's "Dark tower" cover. They drew a scary tower with light grey, cobweb-like lines on a black background. I always wonder who approves images for book covers... probably the same person that approves screenplays for Hollywood blockbusters.

Now this is what I call a compliment. :nod: Thank you. :hug:

I just finished the book a few months ago.

It's about Rose (Rosie) who is a battered and abused wife, she runs away from her husband and tries to start a new life. She buys a painting, and thinks she's going insane when the painting and the woman in the painting seem to be moving.

She eventually enters the painting and meets "Rose Madder" a dark goddess who's gone mad. She does a favor for her, by going into the labyrinth and retrieving Rose Madder's baby from the minotaur. Rose Madder promises to repay.

Rosie's husband finally tracks her down, she runs into the painting, he follows her (where he becomes one with the minotaur) and Rose Madder slaughters him grusomely.

That's an INSANELY short and incomplete summary.

Oh right, there was a painting! And I couldn't remember how Rose got in touch with another world... Thank you. And Norman deserved to be slaughtered. He was such a prick. Didn't he beat his wife when she was pregnant so she lost her own baby in the beginning of the book?

Your artwork is beautiful as always. I have always loved the aged parchment look you give it.

Heh, Red and green. Did you know that those are the two colors the eye has the most difficult time dealing with at the same time? Thats one of the reason color blindness greys out red and green.

And its also the reason Freddy Kruegars sweater is red and green. Its true. Wes Craven said so.

Makes you wonder whats up with Christmas don't it?

For all my life I was taught by professional artists that red and green should never, ever, ever been used together. That red belongs with blue and purple and green belongs with whatever you can imagine except red. But this year my sister started preparations to for her university exams (she's going to become an artist) and we discovered, that Ukrainian traditional style of painting was based on combination of red/green (sometimes with a bit of yellow or orange) for centuries.

Thus, we're a country of maniacs. :shrug:

Thank you for the great comment and a story. :hug:
