I had forgotten most of the details of the story, but I remembered that the Snow Queen lived in a palace of ice, and had a shard of glass in her heart from a broken magical mirror that made her dismeanor so heartless and cold. I went back and read the story, by Hans Christian Anderson, it is a classicly written fairytale, well worth it's place among other favorites.
This is another work with nailpolosh for glitter and sparkle to add to the effect of ice, but it does not show up so well.
Method: colored pencil, watercolor, sparkly nailpolish
Finished: December 2006
