Snow White, Rose Red by isthatashallot Snow White, Rose Red by isthatashallot
I started this picture at the beginning of the summer and I only wrapped up yesterday. xD I was so serious about it and it ended up a sloppy sketchy thing.

If you aren't familiar with Grimm Fairy Tales, in one story, Snow White has a counterpart named Rose Red, her sister. This is my spin on that concept-- two sisters who contrast each other in physical appearance and disposition.

Anywho, critique is welcome and encouraged! Please excuse the smudginess, too.


Drawn in pencil, colored on PS7

That was my favorite fairy tail as a child! I don't think I could have imagined it better than you have portrayed it!

I love the idea and I thought that the two 'snow white's were the same at first. I found out that in the original language they have different names, so they aren't really the same person. This is really well drawn, though.

I love what you did with their expressions. Rose Red seems a bit in pain and Snow White is just drifting in sorrow. At least that's how it looks to me.
