I Finished my April Fairy Tale Sketch Challenge with the Bremen Town Musicians!Technically I finished the sketch challenge yesterday. but here’s the thing. I do these sketches on 8.5 & ll sheets of bristol board and I do two sketches a sheet. Since I was left with one last sheet of bristol board with only one sketch I finished the month of April on May 1st to make a baker’s dozens. (for anyone who points out that there were only thirty days in April, and thus an even number, I had this same problem for my last Inktober sketch challenge and started this challenge on the last page of my last Inktober challenge.) So anyway. here’s the last sketch of my April Challenge, The Bremen Town Musicians.

The Bremen Town Musicians is a fun one. It’s also one of those ones where there’s really only one image to do that will tell us all we need to know about the story. This doesn’t sound like much of a challenge, but then it hit me, why would this seemingly ridiculous scene of the stack of animals scare the robbers? After that, it occurred to me I’d never seen a version of the image that was from the robbers’ point of view.

Having that smashing through my window in the middle of the night, with the right lighting would certainly frighten me.
