The Snow Queen Painting

October 23, 2013



In September, I entered Art Nouveau on DA‘s contest. The theme was fairy tales, so I decided to paint The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Anderson. I’ve been playing with drawing and painting characters from The Snow Queen for over a year and I thought it would be the best way to finally get my ideas into a nice, finished picture.

Here’s what it looks like…

Like with the other contests I entered this year, I didn’t win. Again, I didn’t mind. Mostly because my computer started to act up and I was more concerned with trying to save it than winning the contest. :)

There are things with the background I didn’t like when I was working on it, but it was the best I could do at that time. I still haven’t learned how to make circles and curved on Gimp (Besides drawing them free hand) and that was what was bothering me about the background. That’s all stuff I need to figure out how to do in the future.

    1. Thank you so much! I was torn between making her look young or older because I pictured her to be older as well. It’s something I’m still thinking about changing in future paintings.
