Snow White

Here's a doodle of the character Snow White for my Grimm concepts... trying to make her more aggressive and yet gentle. I've barely started on backgrounds, but here are some sketches. Not wonderful yet.

Fairy Tale Concepts!

So I've begun a concept project, and that is to re-invent an existing character or story and make that new element work. So I decided to turn Grimm's Snow-White and Rose-Red into a dark action-adventure game... haven't quite decided on the twist genre yet, so here I just stuck with a typical 18th century-Russian-German fantasy style. I've been wanting to explore more possibilities with the russian costumes and landscapes... not too keen on going sci-fi, but a sort of steam-punk eclectic style might work.

More posts to come on the environments, creatures, villains and weapons! These are really early sketches, so the final designs might not look anywhere close to this, though I am liking the cuteness of the heroines. Sorry girls, you need to be a bit more badass...

Not totally sure why I drew this. Probably to loosen up and get back into painting.
The Chimney Woman is something I came up with as I was drawing her... a painted lady in Victorian England who happens to live on a rooftop... perhaps.
I don't really like it, but for an hour 1/2 sketch not too shabby.
