Mermay 2019 Day 23

This painting was based on photographs of the stage version of Disney’s The Little Mermaid. I love that Ariel has this massive statue in her garden and that she sits on it’s shoulder, the set piece is amazing and I just had to draw it!

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.

Illustration Friday: Fairy Tale

I haven’t taken part in illustration Friday for a long time now, but this week’s theme was ‘Fairy Tale’ and I had to submit something. I recently painted this Cinderella illustration using quink ink and was going to save it for this years inktober, but I’ve decided instead to post it now.
I had the image of this in my head for ages and just had to get it out and I’m quite happy with how its turned out. I drew it on an A4 piece of paper though so I struggled to include as much detail as I would have liked.
