White as Snow by Hanami-Mai White as Snow by Hanami-Mai
"Once upon a time... in a far, far away kingdom, a beautiful princess
with ruby red lips, raven black hair and skin as white as Snow."

I see many great artists portraying their versions of Disney (and non-disney) princesses... and I've been wanting to do this for a while, too. ^^
So, I'm starting my own Princess Series! I'll redesign Disney (and maaaybe non-disney) princesses in my own style, following the original designs as a base, but with a much more "Antique Fairy Tale Illustrated Book" aestethics, with lots of detail (as I love :heart: ). I'll go for a semi-realistic painting with this series... to challenge myself and to add richness in the final result.

:snowflake: Since the first Disney princess is Snow White, I start with her! :meow: :snowflake:

Snow White is not my favourite personality-wise... but her design is sweet (and fun to play with). Going from the puffy sleeves and high collar in the original dress, I turned her outfit in something... XVI-century-esque... But with some classic Fairy Tale innacuracy... lol ;P I had so much fun - and work - painting her... the velvet, satin and brocade where lovely to color but oh, these ruffles... so hard! :faint:
Oh, also, I know her hair is not really Black here - but dark brown looked more natural and delicate on her - plus, more antique-looking.

...And I posted an exclusive detail shot on my blog: so you can see the fabrics and take a better look on her tiara - apple-themed, with 7 gold & sapphire ornments, representing the Seven Dwarfs.

Other princesses so far:

Except for the apples, textures and patterns used do not belong to me.

I love Snow White so much!!! She is my favorite Disney princess ;w; I've always aspired to be gentle and sweet like her (unfortunately that didn't quite work >____> seeing as how half the time I act like a boy...)
