Picture of Snow-White and Rose-Red: My Drawing Process
I like drawing pictures from stories and fairy tales, and the inspiration for this piece is the story of Snow-White and Rose-Red (unrelated to Snow White and the Seven Dwarves). It's a lesser-known fairy tale, but one of my favorites. For those of you not familiar with it, you can read it here: http://www.tonightsbedtimestory.com/snow-white-and-rose-red/

I used Sketchbook Pro and my Wacom Bamboo Capture tablet, both courtesy of the Instructables team, who awarded me a prize in the Halloween drawing contest. :D

Step 1: Character design

I don't really have a consistent method of drawing, but this time I decided to sketch out the characters first and try out a few different designs. The design I liked best for Rose made it through to the final product, but Snow changed pretty drastically. 
 

Wow you are such a good artist!!! :)

Aww, thank you! :D 
Your drawings are beautiful! Does this have to do with the Fables graphic novel?

Thanks so much! :) I have never heard of the Fables graphic novel... it looks pretty interesting, though. I'd like to do a short graphic novel someday--I've had an idea for a storyline swimming around in my head for a while, but I don't know when/if I'll ever go through with it.
Oooh, that sounds fun :) You should kickstarter it :)
