Snow White A Tale of Terror

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.


Folktale Week 2018. Day 6, Mirror

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.

Folktale Week 2018. Day 1, Forest

I saw this challenge on instagram and knew I had to take part, I can’t believe I haven’t heard of it before! Throughout the week, I will hopefully post illustrations of folk or fairy tales inspired by the prompt list. The prompt for day one was ‘Forest’ and I chose to draw Little Red Riding Hood, which I noticed was a popular pick for many people for the first day.

You can see much more work on instagram and on my page @scottkeenan_

Inktober 2018. Day 31, The Brothers Grimm

I’ve known for a while that for my last image for inktober this year I would be drawing the Brothers Grimm themselves. Originally I had no intention of drawing anything else, but as I was working on it I decided to include characters from some of their most famous tales around them and I’m very glad I did as this is my favourite image that I’ve done for this month. I used a famous portrait of the two brothers which was actually drawn by their brother as a reference.
