The original version not entered into the contest: Ophelia's Fall by Pendragon-Arts


Note to readers: For those that are non native English speakers, the term madness is an old term for an insane person or one who has lost their wits and reason. It isn't about anger. :heart:

Dani-Owergoor came up with an idea to make a challenge, then I decide to make this short challenge differently, understand this
  The original work is here >>>



My coaches are/were :iconjoediamondd: and :iconmr-ripley:  I can't thank you enough JoeDiamondD and Mr-Ripley for your all the time, tips, advice, guidance you dedicated to me and this work. You guys are awesome!!!!  There were 5 versions, yes 5! Over and over... remake, re-edit, remake, re-edit... it became a joke... okay Mr. Ripley, this is version 5 million and 1. He's said, "When you get good enough, you'll only have to edit it 10 times."! lmao... what an incredible artistic journey. :love:


More about Ophelia... epic character from an epic story....

"Your parents only wish they had a daughter like Ophelia....And eventually, Ophelia snaps—just like a lot of people who spend their lives obeying other people...The problem with being completely obedient and passive is that you can't fight back when you really need to."

"When she goes mad, she sings a bawdy song about a maiden who is tricked into losing her virginity with a false promise of marriage (4.5.63-71)—part of the reason why many literary critics see Ophelia's madness as a result of patriarchal pressure and abuse."

"When down her weedy trophies and herself
Fell in the weeping brook. Her clothes spread wide,
And, mermaid-like awhile they bore her up,
Which time she chanted snatches of old lauds,
As one incapable of her own distress
Or like a creature native and endued
Unto that element. But long it could not be
Till that her garments, heavy with their drink,
Pull'd the poor wretch from her melodious lay
To muddy death. (4.7.199-208)" WS


"Notice how her death seems to be passive? Rather than straight-up committing suicide, as Gertrude tells us, she accidentally falls in the water and then simply neglects to save herself from sinking. Ophelia's "garments" "pull" her down, as if they had a mind of their own. This seems to be a metaphor for the way Ophelia lives her life: doing what her father and brother—and boyfriend—tell her to do, rather than making decisions for herself" All the above about her character is from: www.shmoop.com/hamlet/ophelia.…

  Her Virginity is a Gift that She could give only once. As Her only Treasure, now gone, She felt Herself of no Value. Worthless even to Herself. Why continue the Pain of Life?

It surely is a great improvement from your original version my dear Gwyn....the monotones and the painted hair, not to forget how you have submerged the lady in the water, I mean it takes skills to do that girl and you have nailed it perfectly. It has indeed being a very grueling and an incredible artistic journey which people will hear even after 5 million years...lol.:heart:

Good luck to you dear!:clap::hug:

From everyone I've talked to, this challenge was so intense, overwhelming and difficult. I don't know how many times I just felt so defeated and lost all confidence. I wanted to give up making art all together. Mr. Ripley really held it together for me though and saved me, though he was also a hard task master... Any of us that have survived this with a work of art in tact is an absolute champion to me. I don't know if this style will stick with me because it is a portrait and I prefer scenes but I will do my best and will keep working on it, not giving up because of the amazing friends, artists and unending support that is here for us all and we give too. I don't plan on winning hon... not really a priority either... surviving the whole process made each and every one of us a winner. :heart: So much love to and for you sweetie! :tighthug:

Yes.....................well written and informative.
A beautiful young woman, as you rightly say, completely submissive..............but then the anger. Maybe 'madness' probably just anger?
