For Day Twelve of My April Fairy Tale Sketch Challenge I Drew Twelve BrothersFor day twelve of the challenge the magic tupperware told me to draw the Twelve Brothers. Brothers turning into birds (type number 451 in the Arne-Thompson index) is a fairly common trope, Grimm alone has three examples. When picking which to put in the hat I chose the one with the brothers turning into ravens rather than swans) Ravens are cool.

I’m mostly happy with this one, though I probably rushed the crowd a bit and the two brothers in the foreground miay look a little bit like a stop motion effect of the transformation.
