Princess Tutu : Ahiru and Fakir (commission) by Shiroiyuki3 Princess Tutu : Ahiru and Fakir (commission) by Shiroiyuki3
Done as part of the commission-to-print program. Prints of this will be available at JAFAX this year. Stop on by my table!


Princess Tutu. Ahiru and Fakir.

Watercolor on 8x10 Strathmore 500 series premium paper (140lb)


Takes place right after the end of the series, where Ahiru goes back to being a duck. Fakir writes a story in which she returns to him as a human, and at the stroke of twelve, before him in the pond Ahiru transforms for the last time, with the pages of his story fluttering around her, hair undone, and tears in her eyes.

And, as the story goes, They Lived Happily Ever After.

[EDIT] Removed my clunky watermark and went with the DA watermark instead. Got some concern over it being distracting and whatnot. This way you can still see the artwork as it was intended, with the download capability turned off for added protection.

[EDIT2] Fixed the contrast/levels/sharpness of this so you could see it better. A very nice person by the name of gaz2008 helped me out with this and suggested it! Thank you so much ^_^

How everybody wished Princess Tutu ended:

XD But that's part of the fun, isn't it? Making up our own endings to tragic stories.

I know the point of the story is accepting your true self. But... isn't it in fairy tale tradition for love to pierce all barriers?
