Twisted Princess: Maid Marian by jeftoon01 Twisted Princess: Maid Marian by jeftoon01
FINALLY!!!!!!! I know it’s been awhile but I finally managed to find enough time to finish my new Twisted Princess, Maid Marian!!!!!! I really hope you guys like her!

Story: Upon hearing that Friar Tuck had been captured and that Prince John planned on hanging him, Robin Hood and Little John set a plan in motion to rescue him as well as the other citizens of Nottingham. All seemed to be going according to plan until Robin Hood was confronted by the Sheriff of Nottingham. An epic sword battle ensued that lead throughout the castle. The Sheriff had Robin cornered but Robin made a quick escape into the moat surrounding the castle. The Sheriff ordered his archers to fire on Robin as he began swimming to shore where Little John and Maid Marian were waiting for him. Maid Marian called out to him and just as she did, an arrow pierced her love’s back. She screamed in horror and began to rush out towards him but was stopped by Little John who shielded her from an onslaught of arrows. Tears filled her eyes as she saw the life leave John’s eyes and his body slumped over in front of her. Her heart sank as her attempts to awaken Little John had failed. As she looked up she could see Robin crawling out of the moat with two arrows in his back. She rushed over to him to help assist him. He looked in her eyes and placed his hand on her cheek and smiled. And as he looked deeply in her eyes he said “I….love…..y—“…but before he could finish, an arrow fired from the castle flew by Marian’s face, scarring her eye and hitting Robin in the chest. She screamed and held him in her arms as a new rage and determination filled her heart. Friar Tuck noticed Marian and rushed to her aid and hurried her away from the shore before another volley of arrows was fired. Maid Marian, heartbroken and alone, vowed to avenge her fallen love. She took up Robin’s bow and sword as they would be the tools of her revenge…and she WILL have her revenge!

Not only do I love the picture, but I love the story that goes along with it. You are a true artistic genius

wonderful story

I like how you used the Mongolian finger pull on the bow. Where they use the thumb to pull back and hold instead of the fingers.

Aiya!  Is Maid Marian proving that she can cut it with the best of them! :O

You almost can't tell that the 'Wanted' picture of her, and herself with the bow are the same person, they look so different.  

And hiding the scarred-shut eye rather than showing it?  That completes it.

Loving these Twisted Princess stories, while its great to have a happy ending in reality its never so.  Maid Marian has never looked more badass.

I love the twisted stories of the disney princesses. began reading them all and i love it. i always thought of how things would turn out if the heros were killed instead of surviving and live happily ever after. I love each one so far. still reading more and I'll add them to my faves list. love the art and story 10/10

Maid Marian!!! I love this movie!! Most people don't include her in the Disney-princess list. LOVE LOVE LOVE
uchihabankai Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2015
No, just no. Fucking hell no.
Phantom9997 Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2015
Absolutely my favorite out of your works! Keep up the good job! (Plus I love the way you draw emotions I love play with fire )

The ending of the movie was actually going to be darker.

Robin is injured during the final battle, and Maid Marian helps Robin reach a church. Prince John, now insane, following the trail of blood. A cloaked figure following them all. Marian tries to defend Robin with his sword, but only buys them a few precious seconds (or something like that). Then it turns our the cloaked figure was really King Richard, finally returned! Who stops his now insane brother.

Very, very great artwork here. Makes a lot of sense too given that in the original plan for the Robin Hood animated movie, Rob was going to die at the end.

So now she is pretty much staying a maid then?
SilverSimba01 Featured By Owner May 23, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist

Wow! Maid Marian looks rascally heroic.
urzapw2000 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2015
I agree!
Boop-Oop-A-Doop Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
She can assassinate Prince John and Sheriff of Nottingham as a punishment for stealing money from the poor. Skippy is there to help her.
urzapw2000 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2015
I think it's on her to-do list...
Boop-Oop-A-Doop Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
She'll rescue Robin Hood from dying in the dungeon without food and water.
urzapw2000 Featured By Owner Jul 15, 2015
I think the description said Robin was dead...

Oh no! Poor Robin Hood. 😢

Oh that's why the one eye is covered I was gonna say, "but you need both eyes for archery" even though that is wrong

Very cool, yet very sad, I love how you drew her expression, it does show her wrath and thirst for revenge!
100blaze Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2015  Hobbyist Writer
Dude~, I love this, you gotta do a "Vengeance Is Served" conclusion and a fight scene picture, ooohhhh, maybe a picture where she reveals her scarred eye in a fit of rage before the fight begins, tells the story~, but overall I love this more than the others, making Maid Marian an initially sweet and lovable character turn down the darker rouge path, and knowing how Disney has a thing for ghosts and spectral entities in their older works, as she goes down the darker killer thief path of revenge, Robin's ghost could manifest in front of her pleading for her not to do it, but she still does anyway, still valuing her lost love's emotions, but still finding vengeance for herself, if not for him, then for her own wounds and scars, the eye for a starter.


Just givin' some ideas, because this holds great potential.

This is my second favorite incarnation of Robin Hood. Sorry, but no Hood will EVER top Robyn Locksley from Zenescope.

Funny how they're both female, though.

Marian looks like a total badass. ^^

This is my favorite followed by aurora. Beautiful in a way.
zarpaulus Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2015
You know, there was a ballad called "The Death of Robin Hood."

Of course, attitudes towards women being what they were back then, Maid Marian became a nun upon being widowed in most versions, and in a couple she was the one who killed him and then committed suicide.
