Taiwanese Fable:hundred-pace snake marriage story by bcnyArt Taiwanese Fable:hundred-pace snake marriage story by bcnyArt
約在110510的插畫作品。

這張插畫刊載於Creative Comic Collection創作集(CCC)的第七集中。這次彩色插畫部分的主題是人與生物的對話,每一位畫家都有相當漂亮的表現,也希望我的呈現也不會輸給他們。
而這次我負責的主題是"百步蛇娶妻",內容的大意在講述排灣族的一位父親,到附近的山中摘了一朵美麗的花,忽然間出現了一隻巨大的百步蛇,對著那位父親說"如果你不把女兒嫁給我,你過幾天之後就會死!"於是雖然這位父親的女兒們都不願意,但是為了保護父親,最小的女兒還是站出來接受了這項要求。在盛大的結婚典禮過後,巨大的蛇就用尾巴把新娘子捲起來,接著就飛上了天。這時巨蛇忽然變成了俊美的男子,而最後他們兩人也過著幸福快樂的日子。

在這張畫中,我花很多力氣在描繪細節的部分,例如頭飾、衣服圖騰之類的;而CCC的編輯也給了我很多建議和想法,並且給我很多參考資料,畫裡面的物件幾乎都可以找得到資料照片去對照,主要是希望能夠更加地表達排灣族的文化與氛圍。

This Illustration had finished at about 2011’ May.

This one is the commercial case for Taiwan magazine "Creative Comic Collection vol.7". In this magazine has a color illustration column that the theme is “The Taiwan fable about the conversation between human and creature”.

The theme I selected is the fable about the hundred-pace snake marriage story, which mentioned a tale about the Paiwan, one of the Taiwan Aboriginals. One day a father plucked a glamorous flower in mountains, suddenly appeared a giant hundred-pace snake talked to him: If you don’t give a daughter be my wife, you will die in recent days!” Although the father’s every daughter were unwilling to be the snake’s wife, but to protect their father, finally, the youngest girl said that she wanted to took this mission. After the royal celebration of wedding, the giant snake up rolled the bride with the long tail and flying to the sky, then the snake transferred to a handsome gentleman! In the end, they have a happiness ending.

In this illustration, I spend a lot of energy to decorate the Aboriginal pattern and decoration, and hope you like it!

This is amazing...
Being a Paiwan Tribe, I never thought I'd find an artwork here since here are mostly based on cultures elsewhere.

Wonderful work

Isn't it amazing how this story is similar to the "beauty and the beast" famous fairy tale?? I bet that they both originated from the same source and then got developed over the years as it traveled though the lands .
