The tale of Snow White by the Brothers Grimm initially depicts Snow White as being a child. However, the story is quite dark when the evil queen/stepmother tries to murder Snow White three times and finally succeeded on the fourth try with the famed poisoned apple. Many depictions of Snow White, including the Disney movie adaptation, show Snow White as being much older than the original tale, usually as a teen. I wanted to create a Snow White that was younger in appearance, so I made her face very large and round. I was inspired by the chibi style in Japanese anime/manga, and also by Strawberry Shortcake.
