A few months ago, I got inspired by illustrations of Disney princesses made by several famous artists. I decided to start my own project about princesses from my native country. I think it is because I've been living abroad for so many years and I start to miss my own culture. All my illustrations depict princesses from famous Soviet animated films that are based on fairy tales, such as “The Snow Queen” by Hans Christian Andersen or “The Bremen Town Musicians" by the Brothers Grimm.

The aim of this project is not to create a better version, but to show the beauty of Russian culture in my own vision and style. Every kid from my generation remembers these animations from childhood. I believe that all these beautiful and kind stories make us better!

I like the details better on the original except for the face. The after face is much better.

Wait, where does the princess come from? There sure as hell is none in the original fairy tale (I just went and checked to be sure).
