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.
