WIP #3 Snow White and Rose Red's Page


Working on: Kawaii anime art featuring (original character designs) Snow White and Rose Red as Storybook Chibis

Inspired by: Brothers Grimm fairy tale 'Snow White and Rose Red'

Completed: Snow White and Rose Red

When I decided to make and scan my own textures, I didn't think they'd be as effective as they are. Time to work out what I'm going to do with the background...

WIP #3 Curious Curio with Rose


Working on: Kawaii anime art featuring (original character and species) zeitgeist Curio

Inspired by: Brothers Grimm fairy tale 'Snow White and Rose Red'

Currently: Designing a snowflake

Thoughts: When I reached the point where I thought the piece would be finished, I found the image disappointingly lacklustre. Having added polish and shine, I still think something's missing... so I'm making a snowflake. Hopefully it's the last ingredient I need!
