Book of Portraits, Part 48: Snow White’s Adriana Caselotti

Continuing the Snow White theme today, I’ve drawn Adriana Caselotti who voiced Snow White in the 1937 Disney animated film. I’ve also drawn Marge Champion, the live action reference for Snow White, which you can see here.

As with the previous drawings, these were great fun to draw and also very useful in terms of practice as her face is so expressive, giving me something more challenging to work on. As with Marge Champion, I used promotional photos of Adriana Caselotti as a reference for these drawings, two of them even featured her wearing a Snow White costume.

Book of Portraits, Part 47: Snow White’s Marge Champion

This year is the 80th anniversary of the release of Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which was released in 1937! It’s always been one of my favourites, and I even used it as a case study in my dissertation.

I really wanted to produce some artwork in honour of the anniversary, and was intending to paint something but just haven’t managed to find the time. Instead, I decided to draw some portraits inspired by the film in my sketchbook, the first set being of Marge Champion who was the live action reference model for Snow White.

I used a few promotional photos of Marge Champion in a Snow White costume as reference for my drawings and they were great practice for me because of the more unconventional poses and the expressive faces.

Book of Portraits, Part 46: Actors and Actresses

Its been ages since I’ve posted any work from my continuous portrait sketchbook and I’ve actually been working on these drawings since August, but have only recently finished them since I have been too busy with other things. I have managed to fill over half of my current portrait sketchbook in the mean time though.

I do like to work in my portrait book as regularly as possible but haven’t been able to find the time for it over the past few months, I have however drawn some other portraits in time for a certain anniversary this month which I will post on that day.

I have drawn these actors and actress quite a few times before, mainly for projects during my time at university which you can see here, here and here. I thought it would be great fun to see how much my drawing has developed by drawing the same people that I have previously drawn, and I thought it was a fitting subject for reaching the half way point of my sketchbook.
