The last Day of this year’s folktale week!
Hansel and Gretel find the witch’s treasure in the attic
I recently rewatched ‘Snow White A Tale of Terror’, a dark, more adult adaption of the classic story starring Sigourney Weaver as the wicked stepmother. I really like this film and how it interprets the story and I particularly like Weaver’s performance, especially during the apple scene.
She made up to look like an old hag and because of her height and costume looks very crooked with elongated limbs. I just had to draw it!
If you’re looking for a darker version of the story I would definitely recommend this film especially as I feel like we don’t see these kind of fairy tales in mainstream films.
Snow White was the story I went with for day 6 of Folktale Week on instagram, the prompt being ‘Mirror’. I kept it quite simple and decided to illustrate the Evil Queen fining out that Snow White is alive and the fairest of them all and included Snow White in the mirror in order to mirror both of the characters.
