Snow White and the Fox by Himmapaan Snow White and the Fox by Himmapaan
A fox came by and asked: ‘Why are you weeping, Snow White?’

Ink and gouache on Arches hot pressed watercolour paper, 140lbs/300gsm.

Illustration for Snow White and the Fox, from Myths and Legends of Russia, collected by Aleksandr Afanas'ev and translated by Norbert Guterman; published by The Folio Society: [link]

More illustrations for the book can be found in this folder.

This tale is one of the rarer instances in which a fox plays a benevolent role, rather than an antagonistic one. The 'Snow White' of this tale bears no relation to the more famous one of the poisoned apple from the Brothers Grimm.

I'm not sure what I like more, the delicacy of your lines or your use of negative space. I also love how you have rendered the fox in this image. He is so spry.

Beautiful work! That little pop of red on her dress is perfect. I'm intrigued by the tale too - I've never read this one, and the fox being the good guy is so rare.

You are so amazingly classic! I might buy that book, just because of the illustrations.

Nice use of color (and lack thereof). You do a good job of making your way through the cultures of the world.

ชอบตรงที่เป็นภาพเงาดำ แต่เน้นตรงชุดขึ้นมาทำให้เห็นชัดว่าเป็นชุดแบบรัสเซีย :heart: ที่สำคัญงานละเอียดมากค่ะ :la:
