Darth Snow White WIP by JosephB222 Darth Snow White WIP by JosephB222
Because you wanted me to do it, and I didn't want to do it! ;p

Ever since I first started doing my Disney Sith Princess series [link] people have been wanting me to do one of Snow White (since she was the only Princess that was not on my list).

Over the past three years I would occassionally get notes and posted messages from people wanting me to do Darth Snow White. Well, the more people wanted me to do Snow White, the more I didn't want to do her :O_o: It got to the point where I did not want to do her so much that I actually started to want to do it :crazy: (this is artist logic it's not supposed to make sense ;p )

So about three months ago I decided to give it a try. Now this was the first time I ever tried to draw Snow White. I was going to rent the movie before I tried this, but when I finally decided to do this it was late one night and the Blockbuster was closed, so I went on a goggle search for images and checked out a lot of videos on youtube. I only did this one sketch, but the pencils ended up being so messy that even after I inked it and erased the pencils there was so many smudges it took awhile to clean the linework, which I did steadily over the past three months during free time.

As you can see I totally went Starkiller on Snow White. Even made her lightsaber look like his. Instead of the apple I wanted to have her doing some kind of apple-shaped kind of Force lightning (which I might still do) but then I said just screw it and just used a real apple. Of course I had to give White a cute ass :D but I couldn't post the black and white inks, because she looked like I drew her bare-ass :blush:

***edit - September 14, 2010***

Just a minor change. I originally wanted the only red in the pic to be Snow White's lips, because of that whole "lips as red as blood" thing. But of course I had to make the saber red with her being a Sith. I did play with the idea of making her saber a different color. I mean you could give Galen Starkiller a blue or green saber in "The Force Unleashed", and my Darth Jasmine has a red and blue combo double blade, but neither color looked very Sithy. I suppose I could emphasize her Sith eyes, but then I thought about a black lightsaber and it just clicked. A black lightsaber glows white, duh! ;p

But then that just left the apple. But again, Dark Side prevails!! A little Force lightning and scorched apple ;)

I've moved the original red saber version to scraps if you haven't already seen it Let me know which one you think looks better.

The black, sort of black light, lightsaber is a cool touch. Did she apprentice under the Queen? I wonder. The Queen--while she was still hot and hadn't turned herself into a hag--would be one hellva sith bitch. The Queen as the Master, Snow White as the Apprentice! The Rule of Two prevails.

Well, after what Snow did to the Queen in Once.... =P

Love the art and love the idea. Disney princesses as Sith? Epic! :D

Loving it! Love all your Disney / Star Wars mashups too. Keep up the outstanding work.
Darknimbus3 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2013
Ooh! Love the black lightsaber!
wrestle593 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013
Oh wow. The black saber, the black lightning, and those eyes. She looks downright evil. I don't know why you didn't want to do her but this is my favorite one. Amazing work. Great job on the whole series. Can't wait to see what else you release.

Okay, this is a little unsettling.
My woman is a slammin hot brunette who wants a black-light saber---oh yeah, she's a witch.
Throw in a black cat and this would totally be her.

black sabers are rare
MightyMorphinPower4 Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012
Awesome and beatfuil work on her
DarthParallax Featured By Owner Jun 14, 2012
Black Saber?! o_O

Holy Shit. She must be a stone-fuckin-cold murderess x.x

I'm not sure which Disney Princess I like best on Disney traits-

but I can definitely say this one is by far the most SITH of all of them. I can actually see 'Darth Snow' as a Star Wars character. It's scary. It's wierd. But it works. And it's awesome. ^_^

Cool! Think you might Consider doing Holli Would as a Sith?

the black light-saber looks waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better.

amazing work! wow.. what a fantasy :)

the lightsaber is cool

The black one is way better. I like her, but only while she looks like this. [insert epic battle start music]
BalunStormhands Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2011
She actually comes off as really scary. She's very intense. I like.
Canundrum69 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2011
I actually kind of like "Snow Vader" better .... but that's just me ;)
ytak Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011
Between the two, this one is more terrifying. :) I like it better. It's like the poisoned apple didn't put her into an eternal sleep but turned her completely. lol

This is my favorite out of all of them. And to answer your question - I think the red saber works better.
JosephB222 Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2011
I'm glad you like it. I don't worry, whenever I do finish coloring this pic I will also update the "red saber" version as well :D
katoliver Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011  Student General Artist
this is awesome:3
SchattenLotus Featured By Owner Aug 7, 2011
This "black Lightsaber" just doesn't make any Sense :D xD

I still wonder why something this unlogical was invented in "the Force Unleashed" - 'cause the "Glow" would need to be dark, not the Lightblade in the Middle :D
Kerevon Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2011
It's funny how so many things that are "Awesome" don't make sense. Parkour doesn't make sense, bungee jumping doesn't make sense, and bears on top of horses doesn't make any sense whatsoever but if you saw that you'd still say it was awesome. Similarly, in sci-fi, the things that don't make sense tend to be awesome. Darth Maul is awesome. He has horns that make no evolutionary sense, he has a very unconventional and perhaps unwise lightsaber, and yet he is considered awesome. The Force doesn't make ANY sense, yet people accept it (mostly as 'magic'). So no, the black lightsaber with a white glow does not make a lick of sense. But it's still awesome.

Great Idea. I love the ambiguous theme. I good girl with a dark side. And the apple too. She's so sexy in this outfit.
And If you make the villains (Malevolense, stepmother, etc) like Jedi :D
phyantom000 Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2011
There are two things I absolutely love in this picture over the old one.

First of all there is that look on her face. Yes I know she has the same look in the old version but the lightening really adds something to it. Her face is full of this cold rage I could just see a Sith master just off screen telling her to imagine her step mother then to think of what she is going to do when she finds her.

The second thing is the lightsaber. A Black Lighsaber! Words cannot begin to describe just how awesome a sith with a black saber really is!!!

This is definitely going to my favorites!

P.S. Don't worry as a writer I am also a victim of artistic logic.
TESOL Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2011
This one looks better because it looks like she's burning the apple, releasing her anger on the small object that nearly killed her. Nice pic dude.
lauraruth Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2011   Writer
Thanks - that'd be great. I should look into the whole copyright thing, since clearly the people who do shirts for sites like teefury are riffing on other people's characters all the time.
lauraruth Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2011   Writer
Hi - somebody sent me a link to tis a couple of months ago, and I keep coming back to check it out. Any chance of it getting printed on a t-shirt at some point?

Alternately - if I decided to figure out how to get one custom-printed, how much would you want for the limited-use rights?
JosephB222 Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2011
I'm glad you like this picture. While the drawing is mine, it wouldn't be right for me to try to sell this image, or derive any money for it's use,(not the same as being paid to draw a pic) Snow White is a copyrighted character. I don't even think DA would even allow me to post it as a print.

But what I can do, is once I'm done coloring this pic, is post it at it's highest resolution and you can probably find a place that can print it out and/or make T-shirts (I've actually been looking for a place that makes posters). About twelve years ago I actually put a few of my drawings on T-shirts at a Kinkos (but they closed several years back :( )

So I have no problem if you want to try to put this pic (once it's done ;) ) on a T-shirt for yourself :)

this version is definately better! glad you hated her enough todo it! ;) really like your Sith Princess series.
Pirates-Disney-Frog Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2011
This looks like the coolest and darkest sith princess you made. It is Amazing.
JosephB222 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2011
Thanks. I still haven't decided who's going to be my next Sith Princess :D
Pirates-Disney-Frog Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2011
If you want ideas, the new princesses like Tiana or Rapunzel would be a clever twist. But I think you should draw what you think is best.
JosephB222 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2011
Oh, Tiana's been on my list since I saw "The Princess and the Frog" on DVD. And I did see "Tangled" over the holidays so Rapunzel is the newest addition ;) Along with Pocahontas, Aurora, Giselle (honary princess) and Cinderella. I just haven't decided which one will be next.
Pirates-Disney-Frog Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2011
They all look like fantastice choices.I hope you can do all of them eventually. By the way, have you thought of doing sith versions of the disney villains?
JosephB222 Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2011
Actually, as a counterpoint to my Sith Princesses I'm going to make the Disney Villains Jedi Masters :D Jafar and Ursula are at the top of my list (them being my favorite villains) but with the Jedi Masters I want to pair them up with Padawans, that's where the non-princess characters come in, like Mulan, Aladdin, Jane, Meg, and so forth ;)
Pirates-Disney-Frog Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2011
I am sooooo looking forward to your work! Jedi villains with non-princess padawans sounds like a very clever idea!
Addira Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
She kinda reminds me of Starkiller.

The ripped outfit, Black Saber, really cool bracelet things.
Good job!
JosephB222 Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2011
Oh, yeah. I freely admit I shamelessly ripped off Starkiller ;P
Addira Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Oh well! She can be the female version! :D
