Snow White by Charmed-Ravenclaw Snow White by Charmed-Ravenclaw
I wish I had a better scanner it looks better in real life. Or maybe it's the way I colour. You tell me, I could use some constructive criticism.

I'm never drawing such an elaborate mirror again. it's pretty but hard. Thanks to :iconaudopod: for the mirror: [link]

Also thanks to :icondust-stock: for the model: [link]

This is for the Traditional-Artist's :icontraditional-artists: Farytale competition. [link] Wish me luck and vote!

Also for lady-Adams88 :iconlady-adams88: Fairytale contest.

Scanners eat coloured pencil drawings for breakfast. I've been there. :/

Great effort with the mirror; it indeed looks like a difficult thing to draw. The left side looks better than the right side, more detailed and sharp. I think on the right side you could go over the details with a sharper pencil. 

Her eyes look weird because the irises are in different places. One is in the corner of the eye and the other is in the middle of the eye. They should both be in the same place. (And also one is slightly bigger/different shape than the other).

If you want to smooth out the pencil shading, go over it with a white pencil. Then over that with coloured pencil again. This will remove the rough pencil look and make it look smooth and nice. (You can also use a special blending pencil for the same effect, but a white pencil works just as well).

Wow! This is incredible! That mirror frame looks like it's straight from a photograph. I love the shading effects on the wall. It gives the look of warm lighting. Beautiful work on Snow White as well. Fantastic expression!

It is a beautiful drawing! I have to say the eyes seems a little bit strange to me, one is really more detailed and big than the other. But that being said, for a drawing done with pencils it is actually amazing, the mirror is just so beautiful and details, the shadows are great, and I absolutely love the colors! It creates a great ambiance, a bit worried, still warm in a way. Perfect with the subject! Very nice interpretation of snow white! *v*

Ah yes, I see what you mean about the eye. It's been 3 years since I've drawn that... hopefully I've improved :D

This is beautiful. The time you spent on the mirror absolutely paid off; its intricate design is nice eye candy. I love your rendition of Snow White, too. Somehow, she has a slightly modernized look to her, which puts a nice, creative spin on the fairy tale.

Thanks. I should really start working more detail into things they turn out quite nice when I actually try

i really like how you colored mirror because it really looks like it is etched and three dimensional. the overall colors are gorgeous and i love your interrputation on snow white. your version looks more innocent and modern, i really like it!
for coloring i would recommend moving your pencil in more of a circle motion in stead of straight lines. that way you cannot see the strokes. just a little hint. i am assuming that this is colored pencil...although i could be wrong ^^;
overall it is beautiful, great work! :love:
