Art | Snow White | Coloured Pencil Portrait

I haven’t had time to sketch in so long! I’m planning on starting a new series of portraits, and who better than the Disney princesses, who are, let’s be honest, my main daily inspiration?

This portrait has been sketched completely by coloured pencils, and I used very little reference images so that my work is original in pose and colour. Apart from the obvious princess artwork, I was also inspired by headshots of early Hollywood stars such as Clara Bow, Jean Harlow, Bette Davis and Joan Crawford, which is fitting with the era when Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs was released (1939). They always looked very dreamy as they look off into the distance with their big doe eyes, which is what I happily managed to capture in this drawing.
