I’ve seen a lot of stuff about racially diverse fairy tales lately and it got me thinking. I decided to try and illustrate one idea I got: Japanese Snow White. I chose Japan because the “Hair as black as ebony, skin as white as snow” reminded me a lot of ancient Japanese concepts of beauty. I did change the apple to a peach though, since peaches are more intrinsic in many Japanese stories and culture. I suck at realism but I tried. It’s kind of a mix of realism and some of the wood block prints I looked at for references. Tough part was the 12 layer kimono (Junihitoe, traditionally worn by court ladies in ancient Japan). It was originally larger, but I couldn’t get the many layers right and decided to crop it. Pose is referenced from a photo of “Snow White” floating around the internet, and the patterns from origami paper and other sources. If anyone feels there is a problem with it, let me know. I want to do this with respect and do it correctly, so i welcome the chance to be educated (so long as it is with civility).
I might try to do more some day if I get more ideas. If anyone has suggestions for fairytales as represented by a different culture than say Disney or event heir country of origin, go ahead and let me know. I love any excuse.
