Self Portrait as Snow White

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

I was looking in the mirror one day, and I was like- wow I'm so white I could be transparent... Almost like Snow White... hmmm I should draw myself as Snow White... so I did...Obviously there are some anatomical flaws in the face, which I couldn't fix because I had sadly already started coloring, and was unaware of them until the next day (that's what happens when you draw and color pictures at two in the morning without getting another person's input first...) but I tried to fix them a little bit in PSP using the perspective fixer thing... Also, the original picture is 11x14, and I didn't want an unsightly scan line in the middle of it, so I just cropped out the outside edges- basically there's just more hair/tree and more blossoms at the bottom. This is done in colored pencil and gouache (for the flowers) and was basically just an experiemnt with color and skin tone- I've been playing with undertones, and I wanted to see if by adding more cool colors, like blue and purple, if I could get my skin tone to look whiter (this is in contrast to the other self portrait I'm working on where I used Botticelli's palette of warmer undertones like yellows and pinks) and I think it's pretty sucessful in that area... so other than the forehead/face being slightly more compressed than I would have liked, I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out:)
