Snow White set the seven dwarves to work spring-cleaning their tiny cottage. There was a lot to be done. The dwarves swept the floor, polished the windows, washed the linen, and made the beds. There were seven of everything and everything was half its usual size. Meanwhile Snow White prepared a delicious feast for her seven little hosts.
Later that night, when they had finished supper and every dwarf was round, full, and contented Snow White danced with the seven dwarves to the jolly strains of the fiddle. The little men stood no higher than her waist.
No one noticed the ugly old hag watching them from the window.

Snow White Text
"News of Snow White's death sent the Queen rushing to consult her magic mirror. She fled to the top of the tallest tower and entered the secret chamber where all her terrible spells were boiled and bred.
Lighting a candle she locked the chamber door and turned to question the mirror that watched her silently from the far wall.
'Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?'
There was a long silence as her reflection scowled back at her from within the glass.
Then, finally, the mirror spoke..."
When I read the text I knew I wanted to show intensity and tension in the queen's attitude as she despirately waits for the mirror to tell her what she wants to hear, I did this sketch first... unfortunately for the final we were required to show the whole figure in the mirror and i think that I never captured this feeling. One of my classmates said my piece was comedic ...which is depressing.
