And One Had an Ax by PhantomSeptember And One Had an Ax by PhantomSeptember
Not really sure how I should feel about the outcome...

I was going for a conceptual illustration of one of Tomi Ungerer's three robbers.

The Three Robbers' Song... which I think might be the opening credits for the German movie... but I'm not sure. This shows you the kind of wonderful stories I liked as a child. Maybe not the best translation from German... but thought it was an alright translation. You can listen to the German song here: [link]

We are the...
Grim rogues who lurk through the night,
Gold and Silver and jewels we rob
Don't care put up a fight.
The Moon laughs alone, he laughs with us,
When our blunderbuss ignite,
Take heed and hand it over,
Or we'll put out your light.

Robbery is child's play,
And no one plays like we do.
Gunshot here, bellows there,
The animals are through.
Now the coach is stopped
Dead in its tracks,
We'll smash the wheel with a blow of a ax.

Baboom, baboom it's time,
Put your hands up and surrender,
A sharper knife to end life,
And cut a heart so tender.

Baboom, baboom it's time,
Put your hands up and surrender,
A sharper knife to end life,
And cut you down the center.

All the other robbers out there,
You better now beware,
We run things now and we don't aim to share.
We mock the police, we help the poor,
The purses of the nobility
Are ours for sure.

Baboom, baboom we surrender.
Take everything you see,
Spare our lives and our wives,
We give all our gold to thee!
Spare our lives and our wives,
We give all our gold to thee!
We give all our gold to thee!
We give all our gold to thee!

I'm glad you like it so much! I think I'm going to do the other two robbers as well.
