i don't need fairytales... by AuldBlue i don't need fairytales... by AuldBlue
‘’I don’t need fairytales anymore’’.
… Sarah’s voice rang clear as a bell in his ears and chest,
Leaving him on the tiles of the castle floor, where he sobbed his grief and demise.

‘’Life’s not worth living if not for you, my precious thing’’. He choked.
All that remained was his voice on the wind, and a dusting of glitter across the castle, beyond the Goblin City.
King jareth… was no more.
...
He disappeared, like a sandcastle in the wind.
____________________
... ;3;

just like with the movie end, jareth is throwing the crystal, as it breaks > symbolism.
watching the girl inside who did this all.
__________________________________________
ARGGH! :cries: i get a clear image of a beautiful death for the poor man. ( like how sand blows across the desert peaks).
>> yes i love emo jareth.

i know he probably looks real crap (as my sister hates it)
but i did it for the hair.
major edits to face. >> it looked worse XD

recently i went through old works, and found i prefer my old style of colouring certain things, so i try to remember how i did it, it failed.
but i did try sai for the hair, and that was lovely perfection for me.

enhanced my line-art with a sharpening, and hair so it stands out more.
his tear is really pretty to me, translucent.

I know, seems harsh But mostly I only mean the truth (Own worst critic? XD). I mean well, and wouldn't have gotten as far as I have, if not for being like I am.

Although I take it all back on this pic, don't see how nice my art is at the time. (It looked faulty? I see things terribly :S) ^^;
So thought it was crap.

I now think it's a lovely piece. :love:

Thanks eva much! +fav :hug: :heart: :blowkiss: :glomp: :)

When Jareth cries, a little part of me dies inside D: Actually...my soul dies lol.

I think the idea of Jareth of only actually inside Sarah's mind is interesting...but it's so heartbreaking! D: I like how you depicted him in the pic anyway :D

Same for me, it broke my heart when he sang and couldn't stay ('Within her' and at the part);_;

I am fascinated by the many ideas you can think up and create/use from laby.

Thanks very much! :hug: :heart: :blowkiss: :glomp: :)
Have a nice day!

W-H-O-A-A-A-A!!

Seems you´ve been working!!!
This is great, seriously, and it is more great, knowing you made it under that poor sick state you talk about!!

I love his tear falling, and the dramatic look on his face... Love the work you made with his glove, it really looks like leather...

Well, good job Oji, I hope you can rest and get better soon!!!

Bye^^

ah, nono XD
i draw so much, i am way ahead, i scanned this in a few weeks ago, and coloured it days ago, when i was well.
so this was done fine,
the last 1 i did was terrible though XD (2 days ago).

i draw everyday^^
that's how i improve so fast.

tears a quite simple things to do, but look beautiful ;v;
i think it seems more emotional if he were to cry 1 tear, not rivers of them XD. it's hard to make him cry.

the dramatic face was pretty, but i think he looked sadder in the pencil sketch, before i edited it and added colour.
(i can put it up in scraps if you'd like to see how bad it was XD. but he looked more heartbroken <3 XD)

thanks so very much :hug:
for both the comment and caring words^^

After looking at the image and reading what you wrote, I decided I could find nothing funny about it; try as I might. It's incredibly touching and appropriate. Sorry if I disappointed, Oji-darlin. I know I said I'd find something funny in all your Jareth work, but for this one, I was stunned to silence. Bra-vo. Very well done, Roo-Girl. You got me...

i seem to love the thought of him and things dying XD
i'm so mean/heartless (only with art, i really hate death :'c).

ya, really i wouldn't want that to happen to our fav GK, it was just a random idea i got, which i have plenty of different ideas, the bitter-sweet endings just seem more appropriate for him.

the comic i made was a happy ending (i shall redo it as it sucked). blah blah, everyone loves a happy ending, hehe.

thank you very much paisley
