"Snow Queen v.2" -- scanned pen and pencil drawing colored digitally in Corel Painter
I'm gifiting this piece to
for the gift giving meme from January 2009. Hope you like it. ^^
For a more complete version of "Artist's Comments", please refer to the "Snow Queen
" original drawing.
I failed to come up with an alternate title for this piece after all. So, it gets the boring "v.2" (Shame!). The main reason I couldn't come up with an alternative was that I think the drawing was done from Kai's perspective (He's the main boy character in the story.), and therefore the shards of the evil mirror, the roses from the windowbox, the snow bees (referring to snowflakes) in Grandma's story about the Snow Queen, and the beautiful abductor herself beckoning him... I also wanted to play with the word "eternity" somewhere for the significance in the story, but then I had read one quote from Kahlil Gibran, "Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in the mirror.", and everything got all mixed up in my head.
