I like seeing Snow White in different dresses. All the other Disney princesses get to try a bunch of other dresses in their movies, but poor Snow only has her regular dress and the rags in her movie...
I drew a new dress for Snow White once, it was sort of a gray-purple and she was supposed to be older so I gave her longer sleeves and a different hair band, and with my style of drawing her hair looked different anyway.
Outstanding! (Faves and recommends) The red and gold dress complements the black hair and makes her look not only distinctly regal but also distinctly German since all the colors of the German flag are now prominent here. She looks like she'd wear that dress on German Unity Day.
Thank you so much for the kind and insightful comment. The colors of her dress were inspired by the original 1937 Disney poster by Gustaf Tenggren and yes, he was German as Snow White is Germanic in fairy tale heritage and lore. Gerry
My pleasure - and thanks for the Tenggren insight! Quick bit of trivia - with Rapunzel set to be inducted and crowned in London on October 2nd, Germany is actually the only other European country besides France to have at least two Princesses.
Would you like to check out my stuff? It's just photos and arrangements, but I'd be honored to hear your comments. If you're really into Disney park photos, I also recommend Our Disney Adventures, a group I started less than 3 weeks ago - ([link]).
The illustration of Snow White is very well done. My criticism is in choice of color palette - it comes off as all very brown. Why not add some color to her dress?
Also, the cloth background comes off as very busy -- forcing me to focus on the cloth texture rather than the central portrait -- and the blue next to yellow makes the yellow look olivey.
I would suggest adding some bright color to snow white to make her pop (and thus draw more focus to her) and using darker colors for the background to mute the busy texture of the fabric -- maybe a dark red and dark blue.
