Sisters Grimm by Porcelain-Requiem Sisters Grimm by Porcelain-Requiem
I'm sure I'm not the only one to think of Fairy Tale Superheroes, but I'm pretty sure I'm the first one on DA - since I haven't seen any other images like this.

So, this is a doodle of the Sisters Grimm.

From left to right...

Snow White (powers over snow and ice)
Rose Red (powers over plants)
Red Riding Hood (lycanthropy)
Cinderella (powers over fire)
Rapunzel (enchanted sentient hair)

Each girl has a corresponding Brothers Grimm too. :D

Snow White has Tom Thumb (who can grow and shrink)
Rose Red has Rumpelstiltskin (who has powers over earth and rock)
Red Riding Hood has Lumber Jack - the woodsman (who uses his axe and strength)
Cinderella has Charming (who has powers over wind)
And Rapunzel has Thorn - he's based on the prince from her story (who has psychic powers and the ability to create illusions)



ENJOY!!

Characters - Grimm and Grimm
Art and Design - Me

Pretty neat concept.

Though why does Charming have wind powers?
Reply
:iconporcelain-requiem:
Porcelain-Requiem Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Because I wanted him to be a help to Cinderella's fire. And wind fuels flames. :)

Forgot to ask, just how does Red have werewolf powers? Is the Big Bad Wolf her... Big Bad Dad?

Maybe he is. Or maybe he scratched her and transferred his power. Who knows? ;)

I love this idea--I also love that your version of Cinderella is a brunette rather than a blonde. I also find it really clever that Rapunzel's male counterpart's name is Thorn--due to landing in the thorn bushes.

Exactly. I wanted to keep it true to the source material while making it original as well. Thorn is already blinded too, hence why he has that name. :)

You might want to consider giving them a different name, because Sisters Grimm is the name of a popular children's book series with a big enough fanbase that you'll be getting a lot of people going '...eh? Why is this named after my fandom?'

That's a cool idea, and I love that you included Rose Red, but... Tom Thumb for Snow White? Why exactly?

I really like Snow White and Rose Red here - both have awesome designs and interesting face expressions which seem to indicate their characters. They're really beautiful! :aww:
Cinderella looks kinda off to me in the sense that her design doesn't say 'Cinderella' to me at all. I'm curious why did you design her like that. Plus powers over fire... I can kinda 'see what you did there' but I think it's too far away from the fairy tale itself (from the versions I grew up with, that is). I mean, the others girls are all more clever in this aspect (=anyone can see the connection when it comes to them).
I really like the group shot you did with them, it looks 'official' but the girls still are having fun. Rapunzel looks the least superhero-ish to me, more like regular fairy tale girl (just not the princess). Still, I like the more modern look she has. Does the team has a leader, by the way? :)
As for the concept, many of artists here have done the 'fairy tale superheroines' thing with Disney's version of the characters, so yeah. But I guess you meant the non-Disney versions...
All in all: Nice job, thanks for sharing! :D
