Snow White's Poison Apple


Author Comments

This is my first attempt at trying to create an image that feels painted..ish.

This is also the first art piece I can honestly say I didn't rush. I wanted to really give my time and attention to something so that I could take my art further. Most of the time I will sit for 6 hours and just go from start to finish. But with this one I wanted it to actually develop; evolve.

I started her around September 16th and finished her October 1st. The first 4 days I worked on her consecutively (got her outline and shading done) and then I started to take longer breaks in between; I just couldn't figure out what to do since I had never gone the route I wanted to take (painting). But I told myself "Just a little bit a day, there is no rush. Play with her" and sure enough it worked, at least in my opinion.

I'm so happy with how she turned out and I'm proud that I gave her the time and attention she needed.

Please, if there any advice/critiques anyone has I invite them to share. I just want to absorb as much as I can.


A pretty neat piece of art you got here :) Like the colors and sparkles really fit the image. The only minor issue is the apple, I think it sort of blends with her dress a little. But it's just nitpicking :D so keep it up!

PencilxCase responds:

Thank you so much :). I can understand about the apple. It's the same red as the "drops" on her shoulder pieces. I was actually thinking I should change her eyes so they look normal. Not a lot of people understand the "evil" vibe I was going for. I kept thinking of the Demons from Supernatural lol.
