Childhood of Briar Rose by TaijaVigilia Childhood of Briar Rose by TaijaVigilia
Commission that's taken me pretty much last month to get done... original is an A3 size watercolour and ink piece. /phew!

As the title says, it's events from Princess Aurora's childhood when she was being raised by the three good fairies hidden in the forest.

It's so adorable!!!! I wish all this was included in the film , this way Aurora wouldn't be so underrated for being such a blaaaaand character. She was the most annoying princess to me as a child...

What a beautiful picture of 7 different parts of Aurora (aka Briar Rose) with the 3 fairies; Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather.
On the bottom picture, why is Fauna looking the other way?

Should that be Merryweather, looking the other way, being jealous of Briar Rose's top of that dress being pink instead of blue?

I really don't have the words to accurately describe how amazing this piece is. You did an such an unbelievable job, I love this piece.

I always thought of what it would have been like with the fairies taking care of Briar Rose. :D
BrechtDC96 Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2015
It's funny how the whole movie is told from the perspective of the fairies. Briar Rose/Aurora says almost nothing in the whole movie, anyway she's one of my favorite princesses.
And I always liked Briar Rose more than Aurora ;-)

Oh my, this is too cute! The three fairies are my favorite characters in this movie, and you've portrayed their relationship with Aurora so beautifully. I wish there had been more scenes like this in the movie!

This reminds me, if the fairies were living as non-magical beings for sixteen years, then how come they couldn't do things like sew or bake without magic!? Was that ever explained in the movie? I've only seen this film once or twice as a child.
TaijaVigilia Featured By Owner Nov 30, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
As far as I remember it was never explained, it just seemed like they wanted to go for some gags and laughs with the whole making the cake and sewing the dress bit and ignore the plot hole.  Or possibly Merryweather did everything as she seemed like the only competent one when it came to practical tasks.   /shrug  :)

Well it did amuse me as a child. ;p

this is so awesome, even that horribly sad winter one! I agree with the others. I wish we had been able to see a glimpse into one of my favorite disney princesses' childhood.

So awesome! The Three Good Faeries are among my favorite characters. ^^

...if Flora can't sew and Fauna's never cooked...who did all the housework?
Magus-Anarchy-13713 Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2014
Maybe they switched around for that one day? So they're all trying to do one another' usual jobs and failing. Or possibly Merryweather did everything, your call.
SparxGuardian Featured By Owner Sep 15, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
will you be doing any more for the other princesses? this is breathtaking! you really have talent!
TaijaVigilia Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
This was a commission so if I do other princesses it won't be exactly like this.. also I won't be in a hurry to do another like this, this one took almost a month to complete with all the planning and stories behind each scene.  :)

I wish there was something like this in the movie, then maybe I would feel there's an actual personality to Aurora
TaijaVigilia Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yeah that's true, she is left pretty blank by the movie.  I seem to remember reading somewhere that she only gets about 15 minutes of screentime in her own movie?

Beautiful! Ur kinda making me see her in a whole new light (if you've ever seen my deviation of modern and classic sleeping beauty and read the description, you'd know that i m not the biggest fan of her). Perhaps i was being too harsh before.
TaijaVigilia Featured By Owner Aug 8, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I don't think you were too harsh, based on just the film I didn't particularly like Aurora much either.  She's got, what, 15mins of screentime in her own movie?  Rest is just gags with fairies or kings and Phillip fighting Maleficent.  I'm glad I got this commission and had my eyes opened too.   :)

kay so there now should be a movie based on this or a short at the very least!

This is excellent in both creativity and artwork! I love that you imagined and illustrated scenes from Briar Rose's childhood, which was all too glossed over in the jump to her 16th birthday.

this is just soo beautiful!!it makes me want to colour with watercolurs x3 please could you upload it on a bigger size?so i can see better at the details!!:)
TaijaVigilia Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thank you. I'm so sorry but this was a commission and I only upload the scans of them in smaller size and with watermark (if I upload them at all). The original piece and high res scan always exclusively go to the person who made the commission. Normally I'd suggest you contact the said person but since the person who ordered this requested anonymity I'm afraid I can't help here.

All my personal works are available to download here on dA and I upload them in bigger sizes.
JonaylaLaia Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013
Aww, what a lovely idea draw what she did when she was a little child. This is really beautiful and gorgeous. Colouring is totally awesome.
