A second illustration from the captive project. first is here - [link] - and third is here - [link]

Copy/paste of description from last deviation:

Here's what I worked on for most of October/November - animation sequences for Bearkatt Productions, who made a Channel 4 (U.K) documentary about Tanya Kach's life (warning: the documentary deals with very shocking subject matter). 14-year-old Tanya Kach was held captive by an older man, phsyically as well as emotionally, for 10 years of her life - a truly heartbreaking story. The animations were intended to illustrate her emotions when she met her captor at a young age. She rationalized the situation by believing that she was in love and had found someone to take care of her for the rest of her life, something she longed for as a result of not feeling loved or wanted anywhere else. Of course, this was far from the truth.

The animation sequences are basically romantic fairy tale scenes with a 'dark' edge, showing a princess falling in love with her prince. They were edited into the interviews that were conducted with Tanya. What you see above is some artwork which was integrated into the final sequences, to which my awesome boyfriend Arjen Klaverstijn contributed animation and effects.

Beautiful, the mist adds a bit of mystery to it. Almost like a looming presence telling her not to go in.

It is a shame that this story that originally ended on a happy note of her being reunited, has turned into a complete circus of people suing Tanya for writing a book and saying things that did not put people in a good light. No one can say anything about anyone anymore, and it has truly taken away from the original story. Your art is lovely, and this set for the animation is absolutely beautiful.

yeah, it seems that tanya, just like when she 'ran away', is still surrounded by people who couldn't care less about her well-being and are too busy saving their own hides. i was SHOCKED by the things her father/stepmother said. :( glad you liked the animation!

Ok this is crazy. I never ever ever watch tv and I was out somewhere at a friends house and watched this show the other day and saw the illustrations and thought they were amazing and beautiful and the best part of the show, not realizing they were yours! Very very good.

I loved seeing these images in the documentary! Even though it was supposed to symbolise her naivity and childish dreams (I think...) for me it made it a whole lot more stomachable. A truly tragic tale with a relatively happy ending. Well done on these pieces!

I love these, loved looking through the full set on your site.. they're so beautiful and gorgeously painted like something out of a kids animated movie... and then you read the description and it just gives them so much more depth, what a terrible story. I'm amazed at your ability to turn your hand to seemingly any subject matter and make something beautiful of it - definitely something to aspire to. :heart:

I just watched the documentary and I still feel an air of eeriness and macabre. It's worse now than it was when I was looking at the previous illustration, prior to watching the film. Knowing the context of this piece makes it disturbing. This brightly colored, beautiful painting seemingly straight out of a story book has been turned on its head. And you didn't even include any dark atmosphere, other than what's going on to the left of the painting in that shadowy area. All you need to do to be unnerved by it is know the story behind it. The painting will never be the same after that. I will never be the same after that.
