Original sketch was made by Brianna (Cherry) Garcia and can be seen here. I only lined and coloured it. Made sure to ask for permission from her before posting this, and she was so kind as to allow it. :3
(Couldn’t really decide if I should colour the vest Rumplestiltskin is wearing black or if it was actually meant to be this brown/orange leather coat. Something tells me it’s the latter but I was already done with the colouring when I realised this. Oh well…)
As you can see, I recently got into Once Upon a Time (blame some fanarts of it that appeared on my dash one day), and of course I instantly fell in love with - surprise, surprise - Rumplestiltskin.
Mostly because he’s the kind of villain who does what he does for a very valid reason (also wanna hug him for all that he’s been through, poor guy) and because he’s creepy and extremly amusing at the same time. Then there are his sassy remarks and crazy giggles and Leprechaun-like voice.
Another reason why I like him is because he’s also the beast from Beauty and the Beast (my fave fairy tale) and his relationship with Belle throughout the series is something that amuses me greatly. Especially the early stage of their relationship, when Belle is held captive in the Dark Castle. Gotta love how awkward Rumple behaves around her during that time. 8D
Speaking of Belle, she’s also a great. Rather independent and knows what she’s doing. Sees the good in people and helps them bring it out. Overall a character I enjoy seeing in the series. ^^
To be honest, I don’t even remember which coat I was attempting to draw. XD But either way your colors look awesome.
