I’m soooooooooo sorry I’ve been inactive! D:
I’ve had the worst block ever, but I figured out that I’ve just gotta push through. With that I bring you my latest piece fresh out the oven.
I had this idea a while back about how cool it would be if there were a black Snow White. In the original fairy tale, her beauty is attributed to the strong contrast in her white skin against her black hair and eyes, so I thought hmm… What if it was her snowy hair and eyes that contrasted against her dark skin? I referenced a few things for this painting, I’m happy with the turnout, hope you guys are too.
yes, love this idea of the white being her hair and the black being her skin. with the ever present rose red lips.
Everyone thinks of [fairy tales] in terms of poisoned apples and glass coffins, and forgets that they represent girls who walked into dark forests and remade them into their own reflections. —

Hmm, I want to make a connection between Sleeping Beauty’s spinning wheel, & the one from Rumpelstiltskin. #fairytaletalk
