Kai and the Snow Queen by ghostyheart Kai and the Snow Queen by ghostyheart
From "The Snow Queen" by Hans Christian Andersen

I was inspired by the artwork on my book of Andersen's Fairy Tales [link]

Thank you to Brigitte for the watercolor paper and paintbrush!!! They were an unbirthday gift from her!

The fur on her cape looks amazing! Also the background in general--the watercolors was a fantastic choice!

Ho dear what. I'M LOVING ALL YOUR SNOW QUEEN DRAWINGS. Ena, the artists for Frozen should've gotten ideas from you. . .also, you should educate them on how the story REALLY goes. OH, I THINK "FROZEN" IS GOING TO BE FANTASTIC, BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE IT'S GOING TO BE NOTHING LIKE "THE SNOW QUEEN".
But it's STILL going to be fantastic.
BUT THIS IS JUST SO COOL :faint:

Oh I know, I knoooooooooow, the story sounds so completely different, and I really wish they would have stuck to the real story because I think it's perfect as it is, but I am sure the movie will still be amazing. Oh thank you THANK YOU ISA.

AGREED!! Winter fashion is so much more fun because there's so much you can wear! And since the snow queen doesn't actually get cold, you know she wears clothes just to be a trend setter lol.

The Snow Queen is very elegant here. I love that you added Rapunzel hair for her. Her coat looks like she would be super warm in it. I love the expressions you gave them that give it a more storybook-like quality to it. The Snow Queen looks like she's about to tell Kai to follow him into her Snowy land. Kai looks like he wants to refuse.
