Kenneth Rocafort Snow White

I'm trying to write an essay for school again and as last time I'm bribing myself to writing with some coloring breaks. And surprising enough i picked a pic by Kenneth Rodafort to do it. I'm such a fangirl :D

this is Snow White from Bill Willingham's wonderful comic The Fables. I'm a huge fan of this book. The series is about fairy tale characters known as the Fables. They've been forced out of their homelands by The Adversary who has conquered the realm. The Fables have traveled to our world and formed a  community in New York City known as Fabletown. The comic features all the favorite fairytale characters from Prince Charming to Red Riding Hood and boy does it give them a modern twist! To keep it short, if your not reading this yet then you really should. Now.
I wasn't totally in love with Snow as a character in the beginning but after the whole falling in love with the Big Bad Wolf... Well yeah, I'm a sucker for romance. But this pic by Rocafort I loved ever since I saw it in his blog and now that he posted it again as a bit bigger version I just had to color it. Not to mention that we got the first snow here couple of days ago so the theme felt proper :)

And with colors by yours truly

Bob Howard: Plumber of the Unknown

I haven't had time to color a-ny-thiiing for ages. So when my fave forum published it's annual coloring competition I just had to do it. I mean who needs sleep anyways when you can color, eh? I've before called a lot of pictures "my first coloring but the truth is(and I only realised this today) that I actually colored the first pic for this same competition a year ago. Aah, memories, memories.

I have to admit I know absolutely nothing about the comic Bob Howard: Plumber of the Unknown that this splash is from but kinda liked it that way. It gave me a lot of freedom. And I totally blame the lack of time for the flashy neon rodent. I'll post the pic without the glow effects too so you'll see just how I didn't have time to figure out the background colors and totally cheated with it :D

The finished one

and the one without the light(and background)
